About The Hollywood Report Card

In the previous century, Mr. Anthony penned film reviews for the Pasadena Weekly and other fine publications.  Then in 1998, Ross Anthony and Ken Kocanda created HollwoodReportCard.com to express their love for film, writing and art. Nearing two decades later, this website continues to grow, hosting over one thousand reviews and articles.

Reader Comments:

"I just sort of stumbled onto your site today. At rottentomatoes.com I read your review of "Groundhog Day". What a beautiful movie review. I've never read anything like it. Most reviewers try so hard to be snarky in the cleverest way, and your review made me want to go and watch the movie again tonight. I decided to see how you treated other movies that I've enjoyed. I'm definitely bookmarking your site." Carol W.


"Duuuuuude!I just got back from seeing "Happy Feet", and you totally nailed it!! A wonderful movie, indeed! I didn't expect something that touching, nor that visually spectacular! (Man, imagine the rendering times involved!!) I sent a link to your review to a friend of mine so she'll go see it ASAP!" Don.


"Your notes are insightful, funny, non- cloying and have the ring of deriving from a real person. I wish they all matched my opinions exactly so i could refer people to you directly without having to disrupt my meditations, but it's just not so. But as a film lover, i love your (in)site." Jesse.


"I've read all the books by Ross Anthony. Each one brings wonder and magic back into my life … one of life's simple pleasures, yet there is always a deeper, profound message." Terry.


"My niece says you are her new favorite author! She has an extremely busy schedule so she reads a little at a time and shares some of the paragraphs with me. She says she can't wait for more books from you." U'ilani.


"I always enjoyed your movie reviews and thoughts. Rarely if ever did I disagree with your comments. :D." Khanada.


"Dream big, love hard and 'Seize the Day!'"
