There is nothing quite as astounding as having your perception of yourself and the world and other people massacred by a piece of film. My weapons of choice are The Departed, Short Term 12, Heathers, and Neruda.

My favourite films are The Best Offer, Kick Ass, The Lego Movie and anything Woody Allen. Even though this isn’t a movie, I love E4’s Utopia. Jessica Hyde is bae. If I’m not watching movies or tv shows then you’ll probably find me eating cake and procrastinating because I'm... AWESOME.

My favourite films and TV right now are Sherlock, anything Tim Burton or Studio Ghibli, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl and Mr. Holmes. If I’m not watching any of the above I’ll be painting Warhammer, watching Youtube (Tyler Oakley, Dan and Phil) or baking cakes.

I will pretty much watch anything, as terrible as it might sound from the synopsis. My favorite films are the Harry Potter series, The Truman Show, and anything Tim Burton. I make a point of watching every animated kids movie that comes out for 'research purposes.'

I love film. I love all kinds of film. Whether it be great, bad, funny, sad, laughably bad or downright scary, I think all films have an audience for somebody. There's nothing as good as watching a perfect film for the first time and relishing every last bit.

My favourite motion pictures include Blade Runner, Beyond The Lighted Stage, In The Loop, and The Truman Show. My favourite directors are Edgar Wright, Joel & Ethan Coen, and David Fincher. When I’m not staring at a screen, I’m playing, listening to, or writing about music.

The films that I enjoy watching the most would be horror films, my most favourite horror film is Sinister! Most kids my age don't like horror films but they are my specialty.

I am an actor, model, director, writer, cinematographer, editor and producer from Sydney. I have always been interested in film ever since I started acting at age five and the way it shapes society through it's passive indoctrinations. When I am not watching films I absolutely love making films whether I am in front of the camera or behind the camera. In my productions I always seek to "revolt" against the traditions of filmmaking and deliver a hard-hitting politcal message that cuts to the bone with truth. My favourite films usually encompass this ideal. Some of my favourite films include "Fight Club", "American History X", "Birdman" and "American Beauty.

Film has been an integral part of my upbringing, and even though I think Dad let us watch a few films before we were ripe enough to process them, I'm still grateful for the culture. My favourite films include Subway, True Romance, What We Do In The Shadows, Raising Arizona and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou. If you know these films then you know my favourite directors.

My favourite films right now, on the spot would have to be Midnight Cowboy, Clueless, and Back to the Future. Movies help me forget about any problems I might have and take me to other worlds, I'm fascinated by every genre and enjoy watching movies whenever I have the chance!
