About Reel to Reel
Reel to Reel is an ongoing movie project. Once or twice a year, I view a glut of movies related to a particular genre or theme, then one at a time I discuss the themes, tropes, and ideas that make them what they are right here, with expanded versions of these studies later being released as eBooks. Between studies, I’ll occasionally pop in with reviews or other geek punditry about new movies, old movies, upcoming movies, or movies in general.
As far as who I am…
Blake M. Petit is a writer, columnist, reviewer, podcaster, actor, director, and teacher from Ama, Louisiana. He is the author of several novels, short stories and nonfiction examinations of geek culture available both in print and in eBook form. His weekly comic book column, Everything But Imaginary, has appeared Wednesdays at CXPulp.com since 2003. In January of 2007 he joined with his longtime friend Chase Bouzigard to host the weekly 2 in 1 Showcase comic book podcast, appearing every weekend at CXPulp. Blake is a member of the board of directors of the Thibodaux Playhouse theatre company in Thibodaux Louisiana, where his original stage play The 3-D Radio Show was produced in 2004. In a former life as a newspaper editor, his weekly Think About It column won the Louisiana Press Association Award for best column in 2001. In his free time, he teaches high school English, which at the moment pays better than the rest of his more impressive-sounding endeavors put together.
