About Film Critic and Blogger Carla Renata

Hey My Fellow Movie Lovers…

A Bison, Virgo, devoted daughter, yoga and spin-enthusiast, graduate of  the “mecca”Howard University’s School of Communications, former publicist, actress, business owner and “doggie mom” to an adorably smart-energetic Maltese are just a few of the characteristics that make up the essence of me — Carla Renata.

What you may  NOT know is that I used to spend every Sunday curled up with my Mom and brother watching the old movies that held a particularly fond place in her heart and childhood memories.  My Mom’s love of film, coupled with my obsession of never missing an episode of “At The Movies“© with Siskel and Ebert , fueled my love of film to the tenth power!!!   Mommy always made a game out of us having seen all the nominated pictures for the Academy Award© and it was an activity we looked forward to every year.

A member of the (AAFCA) African-American Film Critic’s Association,  (LAOFC) Los Angeles Online Film Critic’s Association you can catch my reviews on  www.AAFCA.com .  Soon you catch catch me on YouTube where I host Black Tomatoes – a brand new film review show on Black Hollywood Live owned by Emmy Winner Maria Menounos, as well as , being a freelance to contributor on NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered.

I love talking about films and realized that others were actually interested and listened to my opinion…thus the birth of this blog.  It is my sincere hope that although not every opinion I have will or will not be embraced, I am grateful for the opportunity to share it…enjoy and see you on the red carpet!!!
