So, you’ve found me then!
My name is Gavin and this is my site, a collection of reviews and thoughts about Film, TV, books and music.
No film education other than a lifetime of watching a wide variety of films and TV, listening to any kind of music and reading the odd book (and they are mainly odd books!).
In terms of my film tastes I would have to say that among my favourite directors are David Fincher (Se7en/Fight Club/Gone Girl), Denis Villeneuve (Polytechnique/Incendies/Sicario/Arrival), and Nicholas Winding Refn (Only God Forgives/Drive/Neon Demon) with also a special place for some eastern cinema (Battle Royale/Oldboy/Train to Busan/The Wailing). That being said, I have also had a solid grounding in the ways of Disney and Pixar and also in some classic anime (Akira/Ghost in the Shell/Paprika).
TV shows have come on quite a lot in the last couple of years and there are countless that I could list here, but to name a few there would be some HBO classics like The Wire, Deadwood and Band of Brothers alongside some BBC stuff like Peaky Blinders, Sherlock , Happy Valley, Line of Duty and Luther. The Netflix originals are becoming event TV and I am partial to a spot of Nordic Crime when in the mood (e.g. Trapped/Beck).
Would love to hear what you think about my site or my posts, good or bad. I’m always willing to hear a view point and chat about it.
