I have always loved cinema – so much so that I studied Film Studies at university. But I also love writing about all sorts of films. Good or bad, long or short, futuristic or of its time. Hopefully I can share my love for cinema with you. When I’m not here, you can find me writing for my film blog, Cinematic Sense. I think Minority Report is the greatest film of all time, but I would be happy to be proven wrong.
