About Brendan Surpless

Brendan is a home theater enthusiast of nearly 10 years now, having stepped into the interest when his brother purchased a (then state of the art) Sony WEGA HDTV in 2001. He’s always been at the forefront of technology having purchased his first Blu-ray and HD DVD players from Samsung and Toshiba immediately upon availability. Since then, his interest has increased ten fold as has his collection (roughly 600 titles). He graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2007 with a degree in Literature and Criticism and has written for a few different sites, each which have helped him hone his writing skills and interests. His favorite film of all time would be Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List simply for the raw power and emotion that film brings out in the viewer.
