This week, CinemaJaw is the first on the scene as we delve into our Top 5 First Responders in film. These are the heroes that selflessly give to respond to emergencies. Paramedics, Ambulance Drivers, Fire Fighters, etc. We thank them all.

Joining us is a man who is always first in line at the movies…

John Hammerle is an avid film critic, producer, watcher, and fan. His reviews, best-of lists, and other film thoughts can be found at or on Letterboxd and Twitter: @hammervision. A self-appointed disciple of the Steven Spielberg approach to filmmaking, John’s tastes run the gamut, but regularly gravitate to smart, auteur-driven studio blockbusters. John has been writing movie reviews since his college newspaper days at Butler University in 2000. He sees roughly 250 new movies every year, and rewatches countless others. His ChicagoNow blog has been going strong since March 2010. He also happens to be a friend of the show and fellow Chicago Independent Critic!

So cancel the alarm, CinemaJaw is here to be the first podcast to your earbuds.
