George H. Sirois has written science-fiction, comedy, action, drama, and editorials. His first novel, “From Parts Unknown,” has been reviewed as, “one of the better underground wrestling books out there (Josh Nason – The Fight Club).”
While he has created a variety of fictional work, Sirois’ passion has always been cinema. It was this love that helped him become a weekly columnist on a popular entertainment Web site, 411mania.com. He created “Scene Anatomy 101” to dissect significant scenes in movies and show why that particular scene made such an impact in the overall film. His experience with this column led to his contribution to Giant – a national men’s magazine – where he identified a scene in the 1994 film Exit to Eden as the only one in that movie worth watching. He also used his ever-expanding knowledge of the industry to compete as a finalist in the Mid-Atlantic region on IFC’s game show, The Ultimate Film Fanatic.
In February of 2007, Sirois was invited by the webmaster to take over the Thursday news report covering various stories in the film industry, and so he began The UBS Evening Movie News. In January of 2009, he completed his run on "Scene Anatomy 101" with the 200th edition: a breakdown of the interrogation scene from The Dark Knight. The next month, he reached another milestone when he reached the 100th issue of The UBS Evening Movie News, which continues to get thousands of readers each week.
In addition to his weekly news report, Sirois reviews films during their theatrical and DVD releases, and contributes to 411mania with essays regarding topical issues in sports, politics and entertainment. He is also currently editing his second novel, a science-fiction young adult story.
