I am a Yorkshire-born and raised film lover and gamer with a borderline problematic caffeine addiction. My love for film was established at a very young age through quirky, if somewhat inappropriate, comedies, such as DodgeBall, The Birdcage, The Truman Show, and Scary Movie.

As I've gotten older, my love for cinema has drastically evolved beyond 90's and 00's comedy, and I've become a massive fan of animation, action, thrillers, and horror. As a writer, I am all about the story. I want to be moved through dialogue, character arcs, score and cinematography. I am constantly pushing myself to watch films that "aren't in my wheelhouse," which I think is the best way to approach life (and film).

While I'm not a fan of lists or ranking films, I think you can tell a lot about a person's top 5 movies. My top 5 movies of all time, I hear you ask? Well, that list changes all the time, but I am going to contradict myself and say that my current top 5 films are:

Room (2015)
Scream (1996)
The House Bunny (2008)
I Smile Back (2015)
The BirdCage (1996)
