Rene Rodriguez - Miami Herald movie critic
Rene Rodriguez has been The Herald's movie critic since 1995. He has also written about film for Variety, the New York Times Sunday Magazine, the New York Post and Hispanic magazine, and is part of Entertainment Weekly's Critical Mass movie review roundup chart. At the age of 15, he landed his first job working as an usher at the long-defunct Plitt Gables Theater, where he saw "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" more than 20 times and a lifelong obsession with movies was born.
