Zachary Marsh was born a movie freak on January 24, 1997.  At 11 months old, he became a movie freak when his parents left the TV on one night and he laughed his little baby ass off at the John Hughes classic ‘Home Alone.’  Since then, he had the charisma to strike up a conversation with almost anyone and talk about movies.  His parents got concerned by that, plus the fact that he only had three friends and barely socialized with kids his age.  Zach was taken to a doctor in 2009 where he was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome, which is a mild form of Autism.  Luckily, he is able to control his talking sometimes, but movies will always be there for him, and he will always be there for the movies.

In late 2008, Zach started writing movie reviews for the sake of doing it, and just printed them out on Microsoft Word files.  His parents were very impressed with his newly found skill, but he never saw a future with it.  Then in January 2009, his aunt set up a website for him to write reviews on what movies he saw.  For about a year and a half, Zach went to see movies every weekend and wrote very short paragraphs ending in something like “See this movie OR ELSE!!!!!”  Then in June 2010, he was introduced to an amazing thing called “advance screenings,” which is where people can see movies for free before they’re released to the general public.  He thought to himself, “Wow. I can now see movies in advance now, just like a real critic.”  Since then, he tries to go to screenings as much as possible.

In 2012, Zachary is bringing his reviews to WeLiveFilm, where he is the youngest film critic on the site. We are happy to have him as part of the site and look forward to seeing him grow into a professional film critic as the years continue.
