Keep em coming! is something Roy Sexton's fans have said frequently over the past dozen months since the release of his first book of film reviews, Reel Roy Reviews: Keepin' it Real. Roy started out penning saucy missives about the latest Hollywood blockbusters, but lately he has been writing more about theatrical productions, concerts, and other live musical performances, as well as conducting the occasional interview. In his latest book Roy reviews Sting's new musical The Last Ship , offers musings on shows by Lady Gaga, Cher, Randy Newman, and Katy Perry; and has written one of the snarkiest pieces you will ever read about a Transformers film! Fellow author Tom Joyce writes, The guys obviously a hardcore film geek, whos seen a ton of movies and has a good sense of what makes a quality film. But theres an element of populism to his approach that I see lacking in a lot of film reviewers. He understands that sometimes youre just not in the mood for a transcendent redefinition of the cinematic art form. Sometimes you just want a fun night at the movies. In other words, he doesnt review like a serious student of cinema, so much as a regular person who just happens to really like movies. And, since that description fits me and Id venture to say the vast majority of movie viewers that makes his reviews enormously engaging.
