Hey guys! My name is Gisell and I live in DeLand, Florida, a small historical town located between Daytona Beach & Orlando. Our city has played host to some popular films, such as Days of Thunder, The Waterboy, and Walt Before Mickey, to name a few. So I guess you could say movies have surrounded me my whole life!
I am a Floridian, born and raised here, however, I hate the heat and humidity and would love to wake up one day and see snow falling outside! I’ve been passionate about films & television since I was a child. My favorite film is The Crow, starring the late & great Brandon Lee. I even have a tattoo commemorating my profound appreciation for the film! Some TV shows I like are: Game of Thrones, Homeland, Vikings, Outlander, Stranger Things, Daredevil, Dexter, Spartacus, My So-Called Life, & Saved by the Bell. I have an affinity for everything 80s (I am an 80s baby!), I love John Hughes films, romance novels, fantasy films, cult classics, movies based on british literature, vampire films, cooking, music, poetry, wrestling, superhero films, awards season, going to the cinema, and my two favorite seasons are Fall & Winter! (Yes, please bring on the colder weather, pumpkin lattes, turkeys, seasonal foods, Halloween vibes and Christmas music!)
I love 80s/90s music and I tend to gravitate from Sarah McLachlan to Type O Negative with a lot of stuff in between. My favorite film director is Tim Burton and I love Tom Hardy & Keanu Reeves. I’m also a mom to two beautiful kids that drive me absolutely insane, and I love them even more for it, even if I don’t know how I function half the time! lol. In my downtime, I’m also a member of an Imax fan group that I’ve been a part of for around 8 years. I’ve made a lot of great friends that appreciate film through that outlet & I hope to make many more through CineSportsTalk!
