I am a movie fan with experience. Like everyone else in my childhood, I loved watching cartoons. Unfortunately, very few of them were shown. The happiest day was when Disney cartoons were broadcast on the main channel over the weekend. Duck Tales, Chip and Dale, Winnie the Pooh, Black Cloak - have long been loved by me and my friends.

But the world of cinema opened before me when my father brought cable television into the house. I could watch the children’s TV channel Cartoon Network from morning to evening. Together with my parents, I loved to watch the classics of world cinema - Aliens, Terminator, Robocop, Nightmares on Elm Street. As a child, I did not understand everything what was happening on the screen, but many years later, when I grew up, I watched childhood films with pleasure.

As a teenager, the era of video recorders overtook me. We constantly exchanged videotapes with friends. If you had some cool novelty, then you were the king! I could watch films with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jackie Chan, Jim Carrey, Bruce Willis several times. And don’t forget legendary films like Back to the Future, Star Wars, Home Alone and many more.

Over time, VHS videotapes gave way to CDs and DVDs. The cinema reached a new level - gorgeous sound, high-quality translation, stunning special effects and a large high-quality picture - all this was placed on a small laser disc. As before, we exchanged films with friends. Sometimes we went to the cinema together for some premiere. This era was remembered for such amazing films as Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lord of the Rings, The Butterfly Effect, The Matrix and others.

But the real movie breakthrough came in the era of high-speed Internet. In its vastness, one could find both the immortal classics of cinema and the latest blockbusters. It was at this time that I stuck to the monitor screen for a long time. I have watched all the films I saw as a child. I discovered a lot of really amazing tapes.

Now I like to watch good films. Sometimes I watch cartoons with my children in the cinema. Movies are with me everywhere: on TV, on a computer, on a tablet and even on a mobile phone. In this article below, I will try to collect all the films, anime and cartoons that I happened to watch.

When I had the opportunity to work first as an author and then as an editor of articles on the site, I agreed without hesitation. After all, this is a great opportunity to turn your hobby into work.

From my own experience, I know that it is very difficult for viewers to find the information they need about their favorite character. Therefore, the main criterion of our articles is the usefulness of the material for the viewer. Bit by bit, I collect and verify information about the characters of films, anime, TV series and books. And I give my readers the opportunity to get to know their favorite hero better.

The list of my works is quite extensive and constantly updated. You can see all my articles and read them at this link.
