"World cinema appeals to the comic-book geek in me. Like a Marvel 'what if' issue, entering a theatre showing a foreign-language film is like going through a portal to an alternative reality where, rather than cutting its teeth on westerns, Hollywood's development was based in samurai movies, kung-fu films or big musical numbers (actually, scratch that last one). Watching these films feels like checking up with a long-lost cousin and seeing where the road less travelled by has taken them, and what they've got to show from it."

"I'm a recent Film and English graduate of the UEA looking to forward my journalism on from student newspapers, and maintaining a much overlooked blog. I like quality TV (HBO providing a convenient benchmark for that tricky concept of 'quality') and am a keen gamer, despite my humble Wii and DS being left behind by this generation's consoles. I'm also into comics, graphic novels and explaining the distinction between the two."
