In My Own Words:
I'm 6 feet 3 inches tall, wear glasses and I enjoy life. I live in Dover, Kent and my passions include films. I think that my favourite movies of all time are 'Citizen Kane' because it used filming techniques some directors take for granted today, 'It's A Wonderful Life' because of it's style, brilliant storyline and because it's a gem, "Singin' In The Rain" because it's superb and "The Wizard o… Read more

From the first time I heard "All Around the World", the smash hit song from this astonishing first album 'Affection', I fell under the spell of Lisa Stansfield's voice. It was so full of soul and it was very unique that I just had to get this album. I've always felt that this album has always been her best one. I have all the other albums she's done but I keep coming back to this one. Her other albums have exceptional qualities of their own right but this album I feel is the one that is a classic.

There are no track favourites on this album for me cause I find it extremely difficult to pick out a single track that I really love. If I had my arm twisted I would probably go for… Read more

I saw this British gem of a film at my local multiplex cinema and I was completely taken in by it. It was one of the best British films I'd seen in a very long time. It had pretty much everything, drama, suspense, and terrific acting by Tom Hardy I thought.

He's on his way to a hospital in London and be there for the birth of his baby he had with another woman. He wants to "do the right thing" and be there at the birth of his baby. With plenty of calls on his Bluetooth hands free kit, with names of his family, work colleagues and the other… Read more

I watched this astonishing film on DVD and I was completely blown away by how brilliant and majestic it was. I missed it at the cinema when it first came out in 2012 and it was one of those films I wanted to see. And I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. The incredible central performance of Quvenzhane Wallis was hypnotising and full of character for one so young.

It tells of a young 6 year old girl named Hushpuppy who lives with her father Wink in a forgotten ramshackle town called The Bathtub on a small southern Louisiana island. Then when an environmental disaster nearly destroys her town and her defiant father becomes ill, Hushpuppy is forced to strike out and survive on… Read more
