about

Where it all began

Cinema. Film. The ‘Movies’. If you are anything like me, you will appreciate every aspect of this incredible art form. I hope my pieces educate or (at least) remind you of the drama, the horrors, the thrill of the adventure... and, most importantly, the excitement and nostalgia it all brings.

Enjoy,

Rich
