About Derrick Dunn

Since the age of three, when I can recall seeing my first movie Beverly Hills Cop in a movie theater, I’ve always loved going to the movies. On average, I try and see a minimum of at least one film in the theater per weekend currently have an ever-growing collection of DVD’S & Blu Rays, which is easily in the 5K plus range. Growing up, I had an immense love of cinema, which my mother always seemed to encourage as opposed to sports. Initially, my dream was to be a filmmaker, and while I always enjoyed writing as a hobby, I didn’t get serious about writing until my senior year of high school when I moved to El Paso, Texas. The closest thing my high school had to a film program was a journalism program, and from there, I became the entertainment reporter.

I initially began to purse Broadcast Journalism as a career, but fate had other plans for me, and I ended up the Air Force. During my time in the Air Force, I was one of the most well-known DJs at my duty station, primarily due to my slow jam mix CDs as well as my love for old school music. While in the UK, I spent my free time writing entertainment reviews on Amazon and IMDB but never thought about taking it seriously.

As social media became more popular throughout the years, I would also share my thoughts on a movie, concert, or album, and numerous friends would tell me that I should pursue it at least as a hobby. In the summer of 2017, I finally took everyone’s advice and began to write for an online magazine. While writing for the online magazine, I covered numerous events in the DMV and wrote numerous movie reviews. However, in the summer of 2019, the writing was no longer fun, so I decided to take a break. At the urging of my wife and son, I decided to start writing again. As a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA), I look forward to sharing my views of cinema.

When I’m not reviewing something in the world of entertainment, I like to spend my free time with my family.
