Today has been really special, I have had the privilege of over 100 visitors that have come to read my review of “Marvellous”. It is great to know that I have made so many more people aware of its existence.

Which brings me onto this — Requests! Anyone and everyone is free to send me film requests to my E-mail: where I will be happy to oblige any and all requests, within reason. If there is a reason for me not to pursue the request, I will notify you personally.

All you have to do is pick a film, or multiple films you wish for me to review and have the subject line be “Request” (without the speech marks) otherwise I might not read them. I’d appreciate as many requests as possible as they will give me some direction as to what films I pick.

Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support, and I hope to thank you for making requests too.
