At 10 years old, Perry Chen is the youngest award-winning entertainment/film critic, radio talk show host, and TV personality, reviewing movies with his unique, kids-friendly starfish rating system on a multi-media platform on TV, radio, print, and web.  He is a TEDx speaker, and won the prestigious San Diego Press Club 2010 Excellence in Journalism Awards.  He writes about movies for San Diego Union Tribune, the largest San Diego newspaper with over 300,000 readers, and is an entertainment & film critic for the San Diego Entertainer magazine.

Perry became a national sensation after his debut on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, and was a popular hit on NPR with host Liane Hansen.  He has been extensively featured on regional, national and international media.

Perry was the first child film critic invited to present at the prestigious Annie Awards for animation, the youngest blogger on Animation World Network (AWN), the youngest member of Asian American Journalist Association (AAJA), and San Diego Press Club, and the youngest honoree of Cox Communications’ annual Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.

Perry has become an authoritative spokesperson for his generation about movies with his insight and humor from a child’s perspective, and focus on combining entertainment and education for children.

Perry is also an award-winning artist, filmmaker and animator, partnering with Oscar-nominee Bill Plympton to create a new animation short about the Holocaust, “Beyond the Forest,” told through the eyes of a child survivor.

Perry’s Previews webseries is slated to launch in the summer of 2010.

Perry reviews films on a starfish rating system, 5 being the best.  His reviews are available on his website:
