Robert Ring was born in Memphis, Tennessee. He now lives somewhere else with his wife and daughter and runs The Sci-Fi Block, a science fiction film review site.
Robert is a lover of literature in all mediums but is particularly interested in film and poetry. He was a late bloomer into the world of horror, beginning with his renting of Night of the Living Dead on a whim in college, but nevertheless has acquired a solid knowledge and understanding of horror on a broad scope. When asked what his favorite movie is, his first response is usually prolonged verbal indecision, followed by the mentioning of Night of the Living Dead, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Jules and Jim in no particular order, and finally a rambling which can involve almost anything, at which point the interrogator usually tries to lead the conversation elsewhere.
In a nutshell, Robert appreciates most the movies that take wild risks. Even if the risk doesn't quite work, to him the effort is commendable. Perhaps that explains his attraction to horror and science fiction.
