The Background: Rich Knight is a content producer for CinemaBlend who has been off and on writing for the website since 2010. He used to cover video games and DVDs (Remember those?), but now mostly writes about whatever he’s interested in at the moment. He graduated from Rutgers University (Go, R.U.!) and has written for a number of publications, including Complex Magazine, XXL, Weightwatchers, etc. But he considers CinemaBlend his favorite website to write for, mostly because it’s so much fun. And also because they let him write about Godzilla. When he’s not writing for CB, he’s a novelist and a teacher.
What They're Into: Rich loves old movies, video games, and books. Lots and lots of books. His favorite movies of all time are Apocalypse Now, Big Trouble in Little China, and Adaptation, as well as so-bad-they're-good movies like Troll 2, Batman & Robin, and Freddy Got Fingered. Bring on the awful! He’s also really big into anime, AEW, The Legend of Korra, and pretty much anything connected to the Breaking Bad universe. He’s a Nintendo fanboy for life, loves Deep Dish Pizza, and his Marvel vs. Capcom 2 team is Guile, Strider, and Wolverine. Come get some.
What They're Excited About Right Now: Going through John Carpenter’s entire filmography, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and the drama that is the AEW locker room.
