Name: Michael McGeown
How I got into movies: Going to the cinema was a big part of growing up for me. Having been going from such an early age, I developed a real passion for film and that passion has stayed with me.
What I love about movies: I love the stories and the effect they can have on the viewer. If the story is told right, it can change the viewer. They can inspire you, they can give you ideas and they can take you places.
Favourite films: This changes over time. Growing up, it was everything 90s. Jurassic Park, Shawshank Redemption, Speed, Waterworld, the list goes on. More recently, I have greatly enjoyed watching Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri, you were never really here, The Florida Project, Ladybird, Phantom Thread, Brad’s Status, Wind River. Again, too much to list.
Favourite Actors: So many. Sam Rockwell, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Daniel Day-Lewis, Frances McDormand, Peter Stormare, Gary Oldman, Cuba Gooding Jr., Robin Williams, to name a few.
Why I started writing: I love it and hate it at the exact same time.
Favourite Genres: Drama, Sci-Fi, Action, Thriller…All genres, really.
