Who am I?
Well, if you clicked on this page I’m sure you are expecting to find something out about the author of this blog. Well My name is Craig and I’m 37 years old. I have been into movies and video games for a long time and feel I know a healthy amount about both. That’s not saying I’m an expert, but I do seem to know a lot of answers to movie quizzes and celeb gossip!
My favourite genres in movies tend to be horror and thrillers. I had a rather obsessive interest in Hong Kong Action Movies during the nineties, and what I don’t know about Jackie Chan and John Woo really isn’t worth mentioning. Lol. I also put my hand to fiction writing and have written several book length stories. But as I’m a bit of an egomaniac when it comes to my writing, I rarely show anyone my stuff for fear of them picking it to pieces with me left feeling I’m not really any good at it.
My favourite movies include: Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Annie Hall, Terminator 2, Leon: The Professional and Monsters Inc. I also have a love of Japanese Animation, especially from Hayao Myazaki (Spirited Away, Ponyo).
My favourite actors: Jake Gyllanhaal, Edward Norton, Robert Downey Jr, Ellen Page, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone and Marion Cotillard.
My favourite bands, singers: these days I don’t seem to look beyond Kelly Clarkson and Garbage
My favourite (current generation) games: Half-Life 2, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare series, Portal 2, Tomb Raider series, Bioshock, Enslaved, Mass Effect 2 and Vanquish.
My aim when starting this blog, waaaay back in April 2007 was to review every movie I watch, so I can firstly have an archive of my movie opinions, then secondly, share them with the world. I hope someone out there gets something out of reading my reviews, and perhaps discovers a movie they wasn’t previously aware of, or chooses to watch something based on what I had written about it. That would give me great satisfaction, and I would feel that beyond doing these reviews as a hobby, they had made a difference to someone’s viewing habits. That being said, if you find you disagree with my opinions here, feel free to have your say. I do not profess to being an authority on movies and what I like someone else may not, and so on…
Movies like music can be a very personal thing.
Until next time,
