Years of writing for various outlets has taught Brad Slager an important lesson: Specializing in unique subjects can be a point of pride, until an editor lets it be known no one else was willing to cover said subjects. Being the case he still has found willing outlets for his work, such as Movieline (covering the film industry and the Bad Movies We Love column) as well as Breitbart's Big Hollywood, Pocket Full of Liberty, and even ComicBookMovie.com. For leisure he enjoys well crafted beer and poorly crafted films (intentionally) and bad hockey teams (unintentionally). For more social commentary, and the occasional buzz-tweeting of bad DVDs, you can follow him on Twitter @martinishark.
