     I am James Allen and I enjoy drawing and creating things, and I feel writing falls under that category. I enjoy writing about pop culture, specifically entertainment, like the latest movies and tv shows. I love watching movies and breaking them down scene by scene later then writing about how I felt the movie was, and try to encourage people to watch great movies.
