The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Al “TheVideoMan” Mealey started out simply reviewing movies in simple text iReports. Then, nearly two years ago, he lived up to his name by shooting video of a Christmas tree fire in his hometown of Moreno Valley, California.
Mealey has gone on to doing more movie reviews, this time sharing his brutally honest thoughts on video about each one he sees (he once memorably called the movie “The Bounty Hunter” a “stinker”; and a sure nominee for a “Razzie”), as well as interviewing fellow moviegoers.
Mealey often pours his heart out in his iReports, whether he’s talking about a late celebrity he’s idolized, a sports team he follows, or an issue in the news that matters to him.
On a few occasions, Mealey has followed some tragic stories which impacted his community, such as the abduction and killing of 17-year-old Norma Lopez near his neighborhood, and the slaying of a police officer in nearby Riverside. The intrepid iReporter was able to capture the emotions of those who were personally affected by these stories.
No matter the story, you know it will be told in an honest, heartfelt manner by Mealey, and we congratulate him on this achievement.
