I have been a Lunch.com member since December, 2008. During my stay in this site, I've seen members come and go, some became active and then inactive, while some became "veterans". The site is really young and now has about more than 7100 registered members. A small fraction of that number has posted reviews (about 833) and the potential for growth seems endless. I have come across some of the most interesting folks in this site, some I have known in amazon.com and some I met here. I would like to pay those people a small tribute because they have made my stay in this site very pleasurable and fun. Now, with 833 reviewers, I have only come across a very small fraction and since it appears that I'll be in this site for quite awhile, I have lots of time in the future to check out each one. The order of this list does not reflect how I feel about each "Luncher‘s" writing ability but rather the order that I came across their profile. If you're not on this list yet, I probably haven't read nearly all your reviews and this "List" is JUST Part One. These folks are the ones I always follow and they put a smile on my face through many very different ways. I'm a little sad that I haven't checked out more reviews, but I have read more than 25 write ups from each of these members.
What can I say? He's one of the guys responsible for me being here in the first place. I met him through my "Dark Knight" review in amazon.com. Through the past year, I've seen this young man grow as a reviewer and I have seen him considerably improve in his movie reviews. The man is one excellent writing machine--I remember once that I told him to write from his heart and considering the size of his reviews, the man has a huge heart!
The other guy responsible for my presence here in Lunch.com. (so if one of you guys don't like my presence, now you know who to go after LOL). This man is a reviewing genius and if you are looking for obscure music, movies, and any other kind of thing you don't know about; he's your man! I learned a lot from this guy, from politics to relevant "nothings". I love the way he says "awesome" a lot…the man is a walking awesome machine.
Much like me, he is an Asian Cinema, Anime nut and destined not for greatness but for geekiness.

Her screen name says it all and she is the poster child for inertia. This lovely woman has taught me the love for B-movies and she is currently educating me in the films of Bollywood. She is very sweet and very opinionated; Beware her wrath since she is my main opposition for my "Drag Me To Hell" review LOL! A great horror movie fan, so if you're into horror, she may have a movie or two to recommend. Much like me, she loves Horror and Kung Fu/Martial Arts movies Motto: I think God means well, he's just a classic under-achiever.

She is an associate community manager here at Lunch.com. I first got drawn to her profile because of her "There's a reason why My friends call me a TRADER HO" (or something like that) review of Trader Joe's. I love her restaurant reviews and food reviews. She is a very fun reviewer and has some of the most amusing review titles. Whenever I feel hungry or need a little perking up, I read some of her food reviews. Devora is also very helpful and very supportive of Lunch.com members. You have an issue, look her up! Now if only I can send her some Fugu (Blowfish sashimi)…
First encountered this reviewer in amazon. He is a walking historian of horror movies. (I still can't believe he likes "Dirty Dancing") He has a myspace page called "Pathway to Hell" where he also posts his horror reviews. You want to know stuff about horror filmmakers, you can ask him. Check out his John Carpenter's "Halloween" review. Much Like me, he writes really long reviews! Motto: Too busy to find one…
This guy is one unpredictable individual. His taste in movies is well branched out and I can tell this man is quite similar to me when it comes to horror movie tastes. I am just a little stumped why he is so kind to "Twilight" (just kidding) I've seen him review movies from art house films to really disturbing stuff. If you want to know more about him, just ask him. Much like me, leans towards bleak and depressing bits of cinema. Motto: I have no idea, Ask him.
"Criterion" movie collector and a horror fan. Christy would try to see almost anything, the more bizarre the better and would find the most original film to share in the site. They also do the song of the week thing (as with Trashie). If you need to laugh and have a good time in reading a review, Christy's reviews come highly recommended! The use of colorful pictures and the creative style is sure to grab you by eating your brains and taking your knowledge. Profound weakness for the movie "Jan Dara"..LOL. Much like me, Movie tastes are very unpredictable. Motto: Too cool to make one…

The writer of "The Uncommon Adventures of Tucker O'Doyle" from Bellissima Publishing. An all-around great guy who shares my passion for anime. I've never met anyone so well-watched in Japanese anime that his knowledge dwarfs my own. However, he likes DC better than Marvel (BOO!); I'm kidding, JRider. If anime is your interest, he would have a ton of titles to recommend! Much like me, is an animation fan. Motto: too busy trying to find the next best anime title to write one up…
What can I say? This guy is arguably one of the most creative Lunchers with his diverse reviews and lists in this site. I actually read some of Sean's video game reviews in amazon.com back when I was still a gamer. It is funny that we never met online before, and it took Lunch.com to make our paths really cross. Sean is a bright young reviewer who is a talented writer. He has a very deep passion for writing and isn't afraid to voice out an opinion with a very respectful manner. Much Like me, is open to discussion and very analytical. Motto: Assume Nothing; Question everything.

The Group of people who work hard to make this site the way it is and troll-free. You know who you are! Excuse me, for inserting this one in; I need room to add my closing paragraph. These are the folks who make Lunch very enjoyable to me. I check their profiles as much as I can and I look forward to checking out more reviews from other Lunchers. I intend to make another list and maybe read another 30 reviews from at least another 9 different members. This may take me forever, so if I missed anyone, please forgive me; I'll try harder next time!
