Brian Holcomb is the founder of KINETOFILM and has been making short films and videos since the age of eight. He hopes that they have improved in quality since then. He also spends his spare time reviewing movies he either finds annoying or brilliant.He writes these for money(not much), swag(not bad), and because he thinks he knows more than you do(He does). He's also been known to be wrong occasionally. These moments have been edited from his version of his own life. Links to his reviews on Rottentomatoes.com can be found HERE
