Big news, friends.

A diverse group of Boston-area professional film journalists, writers, reporters, critics, commenters, etc. have officially united to form The Boston Online Film Critics Association; and they've graciously included me as a member.

There's a lot of great people in this group - a solid mix of seasoned industry professionals and fresh faces. I reccomend you meet the crew, and keep an eye on what they have to offer.

Here's a press release laying out the mission-statement. We're looking to do big things with this, so stay tuned!

Wow, that's really awesome, Bob. Congrats, man! So glad you're getting some recognition from someone other than us. :)

Nathan said...

I think that the biggest question is if Bob retains his Overthinker abilities when not infront of the camera and if so if this effects that web series in any way.

(I'm only mostly kidding.)

Seriously though. Congratulations.

Mr Prest said...

Just want to say that on the 'Meet the Crew' page, you look fucking AWESOME.

Looking forward to seeing what you guys get up to. Looks like it's going to be fun.

Voltech said...

A film critic sounds like the start of something truly magical.

Joking aside, congratulations are in order. Hope it all goes well.

Great profile pic. The game is awesome. Almost done with it.


Loads of congrats to you, my friend. You've earned it, whether they like you or not. I still remember the first Overthinker and I just knew: this guy is going to be something big.

I can share that as a member of a group myself. Keep up the excellence.

Congratulations Bob - you're the first member of the BOFCA who's an arrogant, egotistical hypocrite with potential narcissistic personality disorder. Quite an achievement.

Sean said...

Untrue. Bob is the second. I was the first.

KevinCV said...

@Eze Thanks, man. I've been a big "Golden Sun" fan since the first one on the GBA. I was delighted when "Dark Dawn" was announced for the DS a few years ago. When I got it, I found it just as enjoyable as the previous 2. I just wish it hadn't ended so abruptly. If they make one for the 3DS, I'll definitely get it! :)

@James To quote the Red Skull: "You don't give up, do you?" XP

Awesome looking crew, I don't know most of them but I'll definitely get acquainted with their work now.

I really hope- nay, KNOW that this'll go far.

I didn't know Steve had such an awesome last name.
Slaughter?! Now thats metal.

I just want to know what Ivan thinks of this.

Middle name, not "last name"
