Colin Covert has covered films for the Star Tribune for 20 years, interviewing Peter Jackson, Kate Winslet, Steven Spielberg, Cate Blanchett, Quentin Tarantino, Neil Gaiman and John Travolta, to name a few. Colin’s job as a film critic consists mostly of thinking up synonyms for “mediocre.” He still gets a thrill when the lights dim, and all too often a bigger thrill when they come on again.
