What is Film Geek Guy?

Film Geek Guy is a blog about Philippine cinema and other musings. Launched in 2011 initially as a personal column for essays about film, it branches out as an online portal for Filipino film news, reviews, and discussions.

The blog name originated as an initial assumption of the blog owner that titles of blogs should be a three-word combination in order to be catchy. He later realized that he's the only person in the world who thinks of such "rule". But hey, everyone needs to start somewhere.
