All About Steve:
Having grown up in a flat above a video store in the 1980s, Steve Sunday claims to have seen every film ever made. He is of course, lying. Let’s just humour him for now.
“Often when I have finished watching a classic film, I want to know a bit more about it, so I go to the internet and look it up. More often than not, I am disappointed by what I find – so many websites out there are either too short (often little more than plot summaries) or too dry (lots of information and serious criticism, but no sense of humour). Eventually I decided to get together with some friends and create a site for myself, the sort of site that I would like to stumble across – interesting and fun.“
Trish has asked us to point out that although this picture is, admittedly, not terribly recent, it was period costume at the time. She is not 150.
“They don’t make movies the way they used to do they? Except for that time someone remade Psycho exactly the same way as it was made the first time, and everyone in the world agreed it was a terrible idea. What is my point? I have no idea.”

I do have a bit of a soft spot for silent movies. My kids tell me this makes me an old fuddy-duddy. Sometimes I wish my kids were silent too.
Chris the Critic:
Chris is the only one of us who has actually done a course in film studies. He likes to tell us what we are supposed to think about any particular movie, but we don’t take too much notice of him.
“How did I become a film critic? Well, it’s a funny story actually, it would make a good film in itself. Both my parents were film critics, but they were killed by an evil dark lord film critic when I was a baby. I was raised by an auntie and uncle, who had no interest in films, and we did not get along. Luckily, at the age of 11, I was won a scholarship to a magnificent school in northern England, where they taught you the fine art of film criticism.”
