What is the main focus of your site?

I try to write about films from the last century or so that I think are great or worth remembering. The idea is to look beyond the new releases and write instead about what’s stood the test of time or is otherwise interesting. I try and make the articles reasonably in depth, cover the background to each film and place them in context.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?

I use the site to develop my own thoughts and writing and to test my opinions a bit.
In the long term I would like to bring in some more writers and alternative views.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?

Ideally a bit of both. I want the site to be informative and to be an information resource. But I also try and build a relationship with my readers. I try to respond to all comments and suggestions.

How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.)

Just over 2 years. I usually write a major post every week or two.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).

Star Wars
A Matter of Life and Death

Almost any James Bond film

How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one?

Lots of other blogs I follow are members.

Is there an article on your site you are particularly proud of that you would like the LAMB to promote?

A lot of people have read my articles on Star Wars and Return of the Jedi, but not so many have read the one on The Empire Strikes Back, weirdly. So that one.
