About the Weekly Rounders:
When I was a freshman in high school, I decided I wanted to start reviewing movies. I opened IMDB, went to the lists section, created a new one called “Movies I have Watched Started on February 19, 2011” (real catchy title, I know) and wrote a three-sentence review for Mel Gibson’s Signs.
Fast-forward to present day and I’ve written over 1,350 reviews on that very blog (most of which now come in at around 1,000 words). To say film was a passion of mine might be an understatement.
Throughout the years since I’ve started reviewing movies, I’ve only had more and more opportunities to get my work out there, which is something I’m very grateful for. I’m now a freelancer for Stars and Celebs, and I’m loving every minute of it.
Along with writing reviews, watching movie and bingeing Netflix, I’m also a reporter for a local newspaper in Greenville, Michigan, and am a screenwriter for Canopy Media Productions.
And to answer the question that I’m repeatedly asked, Sing Street is the greatest that has ever been made and ever will be made. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
Hi, I’m Aly Ellner and I’m currently a senior at Five Towns College on Long Island studying Mass Communications. I love writing, filming, editing and all things that involve creativity.
I found my love for writing at a young age and over the years I decided to merge it with my love of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and entertainment.
When I started at Five Towns I was thrown into different fields of Mass Communication including writing, radio, filming and editing and I found a passion for all of them.
I now look to grow my passions and find a way to be creative in everything I do.
