Hi. I'm Chris Hicks.
But if you're looking for Chris Hicks the Australian rugby player or the American recording-industry executive or the major-league baseball player or the former basketball player or the author of "Think" or the singer-songwriter, you're in the wrong place.
I'm Chris Hicks the movie guy from Salt Lake City. If that's who you're looking for, welcome to my website as I enter the 21st century … a little late (April 2013).
This site is all about movies, mostly, and it's about me, too, I guess, but I'll try to keep my ego in check.
The stories and reviews here are gleaned from my 30-plus years writing on the subject of motion pictures for the Deseret News in Salt Lake City, with side trips here and there to other entertainment forms.
I'm still writing for the D-News (http://www.deseretnews.com/author/167/Chris-Hicks.html) and contributing the occasional article to the website for Familius (www.familius.com), publisher of my 2013 book, "Has Hollywood Lost Its Mind?"
This site is a mix of archival stuff (with permission from the Deseret News), along with an array of non-DesNews material, including new blogs as often as I can manage to squeeze them out.
Hope you enjoy my little site. If you do, tell your friends. If you don't, just say you couldn't find it.
P.S. If you have a question or comment, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hilarious vintage TV commercial placed on YouTube by D-News staffer Michael De Groote.
Back in the olden days, KSL advertised on the back cover of the Sundance Film Festival film guides with photos of Carol Mikita and I as arts reporters for Channel 5. And without fail, someone would see the photo, notice our wedding rings, and ask if we were married. The answer was yes, but not to each other.
