Welcome to Box Office Poison!

Who Am I?

That’s a good question! My name is Collin Harnishfeger and I’m currently a sophomore attending Bowling Green State University. I’m majoring in film studies and I haven’t figured out my major but there’s still time, right? Anyways, my entire life revolves around movies. I began to actively watch movies in my early teens and I found a sense of comfort with watching films that made me seek out any movie I could find. I’m fascinated by not only watching movies, but the careers of those in front of and behind the camera. I’m especially fascinated by the classic Hollywood films from the 1920s-1970s. I love to watch and read about important films that shape the movies we watch today. I’m afraid to know the amount of hours I spend watching Turner Classic Movies. Eventually, I’d like to move to Los Angeles and work on the business side of the film industry.My dream job would be a film historian but I’m sure that’ll naturally happen towards the end of my career! But as of now, I’m content with going to college and spending time with my cat, Lola.img_1665.jpg

So what is this blog for?

Recently, I’ve been wanting to find ways to improve my writing. College has helped a lot but I wanted something that would essentially force me to write more. While I love to use twitter to broadcast my thoughts and opinions, the 140 word limit wasn’t cutting it. A blog seemed like the most obvious solution!

What are you going to post?

I’d be posting mostly film reviews and blog posts! This month I bought a decent camera (Panasonic Lumix g7) so once I have a number of photos I’ll post them as well. But I don’t really have rules for my blog, I’ll post whatever I write!

Why Should I care?

You don’t need to care! I made this blog to benefit myself and to (hopefully) have my writings reflect my unconditional love for cinema. But, there is a reason my blog is public. I’ll hopefully write about things that people enjoy reading about so I’d love for my friends, family, and even strangers to read and give feedback if they feel inclined.

That’s it? 

Yep! As you can see, there’s not a lot of content on my website but I plan on posting more as soon as I can. I’m excited to have this blog and hopefully entertain and educate those who happen to come on by! I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions so feel free to comment. I’d like to thank everyone who’s supported me the past few years, I wouldn’t be here without you guys! I hope I can create a fun and worthwhile blog!
