Yes I am a complete film addict through and through. There is nothing I would rather want to do than sit down and indulge in a good piece of film-making. Whether a poignant drama or a ultra-violent gorefest, any film rich in originality and memorable dialogue gets my vote. I like drama, foreign cinema, tense crime thrillers, confusing psychological thrillers, classics and I have to admit the occassional romance.
My film watching can come across to others as quite unhealthy, I often get told to turn off Trainspotting or any other film in my 650+ collection and revise for my biology exam! I am a firm believer that there is more education in films than in any national curriculum in any school anywhere in the world.
Add me as a friend if you also have a passion for films and share a similar MCT score, otherwise stick with Facebook.
I also love Music such as Led Zeppelin, The Clash, The Beatles, Sex Pistols, Guns N' Roses, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Blondie, Joy Division, The Cure, The Kinks, T-Rex, The Smiths and The Rolling Stones.

Quite simply beautiful. One of very few honest and poignant true love stories in cinema. It is very slow paced but highly worthwhile for its moments of romance, humour, tragedy and beauty. Murnau created a timeless silent film that stands up as perhaps one of the greatest films ever made.
Atmospheric, engaging, utterly creepy, a stone cold horror classic. The Thing in my opinion is John Carpenter's finest hour. His direction is superb, every shot is meticulously crafted, Carpenter masterfully creates growing suspense and paranoia. Thematically it may be an alien horror but at its core, and what makes the film so fascinating is the human element, the characters decreasing trust in one another. Kurt Russell leads the cast with a very strong, low-key performance (his most iconic role in my humble opinion, though Snake Plissken is a close second) as RJ Macready the level-headed helicopter pilot who is the epitome of masculinity. There is not a weak link in the whole cast. A timeless and refreshing chiller, in my top five of all time.
