My name is Caillou Pettis and I was born on June 28, 2000, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Ever since the young age of nine years old, I began to take major interest in the film industry as well as the YouTube community. In 2012, I started up my own YouTube channel (which I still make videos on today) called TwistedFalcon. For the first two years on my channel, I uploaded videos relating to video games, and random funny videos. Two years afterwards, my web series FalconCast began, which I hosted with my friends.
However, in late 2015, I discovered a YouTube film critic named Chris Stuckmann who uploaded film reviews on his YouTube channel. I thought it was absolutely fascinating how he was able to showcase his viewpoints and criticisms of films on the internet for people to enjoy. After watching his videos for a couple of weeks, I decided to try out film criticism myself. On January 2, 2016, I uploaded my first ever review of a motion picture to my YouTube channel for the 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Much to my surprise and joy, Stuckmann himself actually commented on my review and supported the video and told me to continue making reviews of films.
About a month after starting my video reviews on my TwistedFalcon YouTube channel, I decided to branch out and post written reviews on a website for films in addition to the video reviews I was publishing on the internet. That website is the website you are on right now, Caillou Pettis Movie Reviews. The first review that was published by me on this website was for 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Ever since beginning to create video and written reviews, it has been my biggest passion to showcase my thoughts on films to readers and viewers.
In addition to writing on this website, I have also written for Screen Rant, as well as Daily Film Fix.
