Paul Preston

Welcome to The Movie Guys!

The Movie Guys are film-drenched wise-asses with no shortage of insightful and hilarious things to say about all things movies. Paul is pretty much the Kermit of this gang of renegade film freaks, leading the way and inspiring insanity and a fierce love of movies.

Paul can tell you what day of the week it is any day of the year based on what movies have come out that weekend and whether the grosses are final or not. Paul’s brain is hard-wired to the movie screen for film trivia, facts and 24/7 sensory overload from the entertainment mecca of the world. Paul serves up a cerebral take on what the world’s greatest industry is dishing out. He has worked in a movie theater, video store, film set, video production company and movie-themed amusement park. He’s worked movie premieres, written screenplays, directed short films, served as editor on numerous television shows, written and directed commercials, performed stand-up comedy around the country, performed with The Second City, kick-boxed a grizzly bear, stared down a tank, and defeated all thirteen Halo games and Scientology. He’s qualified. Now sit down.
