Editor in Chief / Movie Critic: When he started this site, Dimitri never thought he'd be writing blurbs about himself in the third person. In his other life, he works as a writer, translator, and editor for various publications in print and online. His motto is, "Have pen, will travel."

Video Game Correspondent: Nicolas or, as his friends like to call him, Dr Nick has a PhD in physics as well as an unhealthy obsession with video games. He won the 2006 Nininger Award for his work in astrophysics and hates vegetarians as a general rule.

Guest Contributor: From the number of armours Tony Stark's donned to last line in the Dawson's Creek finale, Dennis has an unlimited knowledge of geek entertainment. He's also a computer technician and trained martial artist, not that either tidbit is relevant.
