What is the main focus of your site?
New release films, as I try to go to the cinema at least once a week.
I also work in a video store, so I pick up weird, straight-to-DVD films and force my flatmates to watch them! I really enjoy making lists aswell, so I write one of those a week.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I love writing and I love film. I always wanted to be a journalist but didn’t end up pursuing that in the real world.I’ve decided that blogging can be my creative outlet and although I want more people to read my opinions, what’s important to me is that I have a core group of people who I can interact with. Hopefully by joining the LAMB, I can find more like-minded people.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
I prefer an interactive community. I am always asking for people’s opinions and I really value comments on my posts as film is such a divisive medium.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site?
Nearly a year now. I post, at the very least, once a week. However, I have two features – Friday Fives (list) and Lazy Sunday (an old film, revisited). These features encourage me to blog twice a week. If I didn’t have a retail job in the day, I’d post a lot more!
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Superbad, The Breakfast Club, Saving Private Ryan
Name a movie you hate!!
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one?
I’ve noticed that a few people had the symbol on their blog – i.e. Nick over at Cinekatz.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
It would be an honour to join the community. I’ve been doing the whole blogging thing solo now for a year and it’s quite a lonely world. Only recently have I decided to interact with other bloggers and reach out a bit more.
