Does the objective opinion exist in something as emotional as cinema? Today’s guest is Alexander Robinson, a film critic who has always loved movies and who reviews movies on YouTube, like the real Mr. Robinson, where he has over 4,000 followers. Having two parents who work in the film industry, from a young age he came into contact with the seventh art. His first loves were Star Wars, the films of Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock and other classic Hollywood films. He attended the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he majored in Critical Film Studies. It was at UCSC, while he was taking summer courses in 2012, that he officially began reviewing movies on YouTube.
