Dan the Man's Movie Reviews

All my aimless thoughts, ideas, and ramblings, all packed into one site!

Let Me Take a Minute to Introduce Myself

Hello, hello out there! For all of you who don’t already know this by now, my name is actually Dan, yes, I am a man (if being born in 1993 counts), and yes, I do review movies. Actually, let me correct that in by saying, A LOT of movies. Yeah, I basically started to have no life back in the Summer of 2009, when I decided that it was time for me to combine both of my love for writing and watching movies together and see what I could do with it. At first, it was just a meaningless hobby that gave me an excuse to watch over 3 movies a day and tell my mommy and daddy that it would help me-out in school, but now, it’s practically became a job for yours truly. I’m a movie-nerd, but don’t let that fool you, I haven’t seen every movie known to man. So, if you’re thinking about quizzing me on which movie won Best Picture in 1938, don’t worry, I’m not going to try and slash you away with my movie-knowledge, because I don’t have much to begin with. By the way, the answer to that was The Life of Emile Zola, but trust me, I got lucky with that one.

Anywho, I’m from Philadelphia and I’ve been representing it ever since the day I was born so if you live there, visit there occasionally, or know where it’s placed-at on the map, then cool, let me know. The way you can contact me about anything whether it be pertaining to business ideas, reviews, needing somebody to talk to, movie trivia, or just anything at all, let me know at I’m a geek when it comes to my e-mail so if you send me one, I will most likely get back to you within the next hour or so. It makes me feel more special that way.

But now that you know me, and for all that I am, I hope you enjoy what you see here on my site and don’t let it get to you that I am still a young whipper snapper seeing all of these dirty, R-rated movies and cursing like a truck-driver, because trust me, I’m not that much of a potty-mouth in real life. I just want people to know that I’m cool because I use curse words to show how serious I am. Aren’t we all like that? Okay, maybe not really but anyway, thanks for checking out my site and if there is anything you ever need to ask me or anything whatsoever, you have the e-mail address so just let me know. Peace out, everybody! Enjoy the foul-mouthed, terribly-written movie reviews!

    Hey man I really appreciate your comments on my site. I’ve been checking out your reviews and you have a lot of talent. I couldnt believe you’re only 17. I’ve been writing for a long time (it’s my full-time job) and I’m super impressed. Keep up the good work.

  13. Fionnlagh January 17, 2011 at 1:05 am

    Nice blog man, I was expecting the general mainstream hyped movies, but you have quite the eclectic taste in films. Keep it up writer!

  14. tasithoughts January 22, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Great blog! I am going to link it on mine.


  15. Manikandan January 26, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Hi your Blog was so nice. Expecting some more good films review here. I am also a Movie Buff. Wanna like to share my experience about International movies. Cheers πŸ™‚

    Welcome to wordpress, from one Dan to another πŸ™‚

  17. Chris DeCarlo March 20, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    Nice reviews Dan. Although, we cover mostly music, you can find plenty of film reviews on as you know, having come across my Get Him to the Greek review. An archive of reviews is in the works, but for now just type in “film review” or “film reviews,” in the search bar whenever you get a chance.

  18. propublications March 30, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Cool Dan, it’s obvious you enjoy movies, and equally as obvious that you enjoy writing. Now that I know where you are online I’ll come check you out more often. Take care . . . .and dope sweater . . .

  19. Hari Navarro April 1, 2011 at 4:17 am

    Hi Dan… thanks for calling in over at The Hell Street Journal. I have read through some of your reviews here and I am very impressed. I love how you seem at ease writing about almost any genre… its just gotta be the sweater. Keep it up.

  20. Russell April 15, 2011 at 1:36 am

    Thanks for dropping by my blog, I appreciate it very much πŸ™‚ I love your web site and your reviews, and I have added you to our blogroll. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

    Hi DTM –

    Thanks for stopping my site – The Arts. You wrote:

    Nice review. Check out mine when you get the chance.
    Well here I am Dude. I like the looks of the place. I will add you to my blogroll.

    Only you should have actually read my review which said:

    Although I had noted on my Coming Attractions page that I would review Battle: Los Angeles, I’ve decided to forego doing so for the time being. Instead of forking over some dead presidents to the AMC Movie Theater chain, I’ll wait until Netflix makes it available.

    So you actually complimented my non-review. But you’re forgiven. Kindly return the favor and add me to your blogroll.


  22. Dan Bergamini April 23, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    You look like such a flaming faggot. Who the hell spends there free time watching movies made over 11 years ago by them selves? Cock shinning losers thats who. Maybe you should step outside of the basement some time you basement dweller

  23. Amy June 19, 2011 at 8:55 am

    general question: I was going through your reviews and was wondering whether you had rated any movie 10/10 – I tried looking for a tag but couldn’t find any. I did find you 9-9.5/10 reviews xD

  24. moviegeek June 23, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    Hey there,
    I’ve tried to send you an email but it bouced back…

    Have been to your site a number of times, and love it. I enjoy writing movie reviews as well, and love checking out the movies you’ve seen. Keep writing man!

  39. Anyluckypeny January 21, 2012 at 12:42 am

    You’ve seen so many movies! You made me want to watch some films after reading some of your reviews. Nice work! I agree with Aaron, keep on writing!

  40. lish January 24, 2012 at 11:00 pm

    Thanks for comment! I can’t wait to start reading your reviews. It looks like you have a lot to say πŸ˜€

  41. The Jersey Critic February 7, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Thank you for your comment on my post.

    You look to have similar taste in film and great style of reviewing. Doesn’t hurt that your icon image is Hawkeye and thats just badass!

  42. Melanie March 6, 2012 at 1:59 am

    Hey, Dan, appreciate another film buff. What do you think about these films? “Forrest Gump,” “Life Is Beautiful,” and “The Miracle Worker”?
    I do think the film “Lorax” is funnier, but I don’t think Dr. Seuss really intended it to be funny, really very serious.
    Have fun!

  43. mrbig1991 March 22, 2012 at 11:07 pm

    Awesome site man, maybe you could check mine out age aint a thing when you know what you are talking about and you certainly do, keep up the good work.

  44. nediunedited April 11, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    Hey Dan! Been following for awhile now–love your reviews! Just wanted to let you know that I selected you for a Liebster Blog Award! But I think you may have more than 200 followers–not sure–but I visit your site regularly and wanted to give you a shout out!

  45. S April 19, 2012 at 5:53 pm

    “Here we are now, entertain us” as hummed by the barbershop quartet in the Muppets. Enjoy your posts Dan; good stuff.

  46. Tom April 30, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    From what I’ve seen you do a great job reviewing movies. It’s awesome that you’re doing reviews because you genuinely like movies. Love of the medium is a must for a critic. Keep them up.

  47. Wilder Movie Reviews (@WilderMovReview) May 4, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    Great site and good reviews. Keep up the good work.
    Hope you don’t mine me posting a link to my movie blog?
    I have added a link to your site on my links page.

    Loving your work, will be a regular returner

  49. twodudereview June 8, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    What part of Philly are you from Dan? I too was born and raised in Philly. I live in S. Jersey now, but I still go back to the old neighborhood for my weekly basketball games.

  50. Alex July 19, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    Great review. There a lot of fun to read. Also, thanks for post a comment on my blog. Not that many people do that.

  51. Matthew September 27, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    Thanks for stopping by The Disgruntled Individual, and for leaving kind words. Your reviews are more then worth a read, and to that end, I’m adding you to my blog roll.

    Keep up the good work: your fellow cinephiles appreciate it.

  55. thecrimsonroast October 22, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Great site. I’m loving the emphasis on horror movies lately. Keep it going! I’ll add you to my blog roll.

  56. iotas of life November 7, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    I love your site! Great job posting regularly and writing such detailed reviews!

  57. The Undefined Gamer (Mitch) November 16, 2012 at 8:45 pm

    Your posts surely do show your passion about movies. I’ve seen you over at cinemawon, where I dwell, and as you may noticed that there have been a number of writers who have just given up.

    You have to really love this to keep om doing it, especially in this volume.

    My only problems are your reviews are a bit lengthy, which might turn some people away, especially if they just use this to see what kind of movies to watch on Netflix, but also I’ve noticed the lack of a proper archive.

    Sure, you do have the collapsable list, but you don’t have one massive, easy to acess tab. This allows people to easily browse past reviews without much effort.

  58. Caroline November 24, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    You need to update- you are an older man, now.

  59. hotornotmedia December 8, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Wow! You have an awesome blog! I really enjoy reading your reviews, and you are sort of teaching me how to review movies on my own blog! Thanks! πŸ™‚

  77. Kathi June 7, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    Hi, Dan the Man! Thanks for stopping by. Of course your response intrigued me, and so I had to look you up. I have to tell you that I have a son born in 1985 whom I still lovingly call “Dan the Man,” and so of course I immediately felt totally affectionate and motherly toward you. You have a delightful cadence in your writing. Good job! I hope at some point you slow down enough to let what you watch connect with your emotions…not to bring you down or darken your world, but to cause you to reflect on the contrast between dark and light in a way that draws you to choose light! Blessings! πŸ™‚

    • notquitewonderwoman May 30, 2014 at 7:06 pm

      Hello Kathi! I have been reading some of Dan’s reviews and then I came to this page. OMG, he’s right in-between my son and daughter in age so I was like “this kid could be my child” haha- but I’ll still take his movie opinions into consideration. Anyhow, I saw your comment and thought ‘that’s what I was thinking!’

      • Kathi May 30, 2014 at 10:57 pm

        Fun! Our kids are all grown up! My Dan the Man is a dentist, and I’ve been doing some volunteer work as a dental assistant for him…so I’m definitely valuing his opinions. The older I get, the more I appreciate of insights of the younger generation!

    Great blog, Dan…really enjoyed what I’ve read so far and look forward to digging through the archives. You seem to have taste that’s only slightly different from mine, which is ideal. Nothing worse than seeing your own opinion being repeated back to you all of the time! ‘Course…now and again is nice, though…
