Film Critic

There are a couple of things in my life I am passionate about; music, Lego, Batman, Lego Batman. But the one thing that always stands miles above all others is film. My informal education started from a very young age with my parents, especially my mum, introducing me to classic films and taking me on countless trips to the local cinema to see the latest big releases. Since then I have never looked back and my passion for film keeps growing every day and it still amazes me the power cinema can have and the experiences it can give you.

 

Having the opportunity to write for UK Film Review has given me the amazing privilege of experiencing a wide range of works from all different genres, topics and directors that I would otherwise have probably never seen, as well as being able to learn from the other writers and improve my own writing in the process.

Listing my favourite films can be hard, but there are some that always come back to me. Jaws (my all time favourite), Inglourious Basterds, Baby Driver, The Dark Knight and Young Frankenstein, as well as being a fan of the works of great directors such as Damien Chazelle, Edgar Wright, Taika Waititi and Christopher Nolan.
