About Me

A Bit About Myself

Hey! My name is Ben Russell. I'm 20 years old from sunny Queensland, Australia. I started reviewing movies at the beginning of 2012 because, well, they are the greatest thing in the world to me! I don't have a particular taste in film. Be it gangsters, romance, ghouls and fools, I love anything and everything to do with the world of cinema. I will be studying film and screen media production soon. This website is just a place to ramble and talk to fellow movie enthusiasts. Thanks for visiting!

  1. TITANIC is my #1 movie of all time, too :) Feels so good to see someone loving it as much as I do.

    1. Hell yeah! Titanic fans for life! ;) No other movie brings me joy more than Titanic. It will forever be my number one :D

    2. The same here. Can't even remember how many times I've seen this film. Every time it gets more and more enjoyable for me.

  2. Would you like to review one of the Greatest films of all time? Here's the title: Vertigo (1958) by Alfred Hitchcock. I've seen it, and it's really a great film.
