CASEY CHONG | Founder / Editor
Watching movies has been a major part of my life since I was a kid. I started writing movie reviews as a personal hobby in 1996 and slowly gained experience through self-learning as well as job exposure from copywriting trade. I finally found my calling in 2010 when I decided to create this blog site and share my passion for movie fans around the world, particularly for those in Malaysia. I’m a big fan of Hollywood and Hong Kong action movies, especially those in the ‘80s and the ‘90s where I still think it’s the best two eras for the genre. Besides that, I also studied different movie genres from the silent and talkie black-and-white era to the last golden age of Hollywood cinema in the ‘70s. I’m also a fan for some of the best movie directors ever lived including Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese, William Friedkin, John Woo, Ringo Lam, Wong Kar-Wai and Christopher Nolan.
Previously, I traded the profession in printing, graphic design, copywriting and social media from various companies. Currently, I am a full-time movie blogger who frequently attending press screenings organised by various movie distributors and working as a freelance copywriter as well. I’m also a regular movie contributor for Cinema Online.

Moderating blog site by aspiration, I was in charge for fine-tuning Casey’s Movie Mania from time to time (which is basically technical stuff, anyway) and sometimes contributing a few posts at the Casey’s Movie Mania Facebook page.
