About Me

Hello! My name is Evan Crean and I love to write. By day, I compose marketing content for a Boston college, however by night, I pen movie reviews and celebrity interviews for Starpulse.com, which I’ve been doing since 2009.

On top of writing for Starpulse, I produce movie, book, and music reviews for this site. Reelrecon.com is not only a place where you can find these pieces, but it’s a one-stop shop where you can find links to my other work too.

I also do television recaps and short form content for a Walking Dead fan site I created called Blogging Dead. Oh, and one last extracurricular I should mention: I’m a founding member and the current treasurer for the Boston Online Film Critics Association.

Right now entertainment journalism is only part-time, although I’d love to turn it into a full time gig. If you have any or know of any opportunities for writers or editors covering film, television, and/or books please email me: ecrean AT reelrecon DOT COM .

One comment on “About Me
  1. Hello, Evan Crean.

    While at the Ptown Film Festival in June, I saw the astonishing documentary “Call Me Lucky” directed by Bobcat Goldthwaite. The film is about the legendary comic and activist Barry Crimmins, who was instrumental in establishing Boston’s early comedy club scene, and who has testified before Congress about the sexual exploitation of children.

    The film just opened this weekend in several cities around the country, but Boston was not among them. The award-wining movie is not currently booked to play in the Boston area, which is baffling to me.

    I would like to ask you in joining my efforts to lobby four theatres in particular where “Call Me Lucky” could find a temporary home: the Kendall Theatre in Cambridge, the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, and the Somerville Theatre in David Square. I have personally written to each of these theatres asking them to book “Call Me Lucky,” but I am only one cinephile and documentary-lover among many. Having you and other Boston film critics raise your voices in avocacy, the film will stand a better chance of being shown here in our area.

    Would you be willing to send an email or letter to these theatres, advocating that they book this remarkable documentary? Given that much of the film centers around the comedy club scene in Boston, I believe the movie will have a strong appeal to audiences here, and goddammit, the movie deserves to be SEEN by many people!

    Please join me in sending a statement to the theatres mentioned above. You can point them to these websites for more information:



    Thanks much for your time and consideration, and for advocating for this very special film.

    Best regards,
