Marc Aces is a free lance writer based out of San Diego, CA. He began reviewing movies and other forms of pop culture in his Facebook Notes back in 2011 when he realized he had nothing better to do at 3 in the morning. Soon after, he started realizing that people actually enjoyed his rants. Marc started to review movies more regularly which has since lead to his reviews being posted to nerd sites such as Ain’t It Cool News and attending multiple early press screenings for big name studio films. When not reviewing films, he assists in managing the Tattoo Studio Guru Tattoo in San Diego, and does tour management work for bands in the Metal Industry. Or you can just find him on his Facebook complaining about Ben Affleck still being cast as Batman.
