I’m a 25 year old full- time teacher of English at an East End Secondary School and part-time wannabe film reviewer.

Film has always been a massive passion for me. I studied it at university (of Kent, thanks for asking!) then let it lie dormant after graduating.

A spell of depression (loneliness of living in London whilst not knowing anyone combined with horrors of first year of teaching) and having set up a Cineworld Unlimited membership which I barely used led me to setting myself a challenge – to watch at least one film at the cinema each week then review it.

I successfully completed the challenge but found I wanted to keep on going to the cinema and keep on writing.

So, if you’re interested in reading the film-related ramblings of a fangirl then please read on. Follow me as I take in the good, bad and ugly that contemporary cinema offers. And do not hesitate to comment or get in touch!

Since starting the blog two years ago I’ve been immensely lucky to now also be writing for Vulture Hound, Den of Geek and JumpCut.

    I adore your reviews of Goosebumps and Spotlight, your passion for film can clearly be seen through your reviews with a touch of personal experience. Keep up the good work, I look forward to your next set of reviews.

    Hello Charlotte! I couldn’t find any other method to contact you so I’m leaving this comment here in hopes that it will reach you!

    I am writing because I’m a loyal reader of your online movie blog and I’m currently recruiting new members for a brand new association, the Online Association of Female Film Critics. I recently started this Association as a way to connect female film journalists from across the globe. There aren’t many women working as online film writers and I thought this would be a great way for us to not only network with each other, but to promote ourselves to the film criticism community.

    I’m putting together a list of “Charter Members” and I’d love to ask you to be part of this journey! There’s never any membership fee, and you’ll be able to use a logo on your site and list yourself as a member of our organization. We will also be voting on and selecting our own end of year awards for the best achievements in film, and your name, link to your site, and photo will be listed on the OAFFC website.

    If you’re interested in becoming a member, I need the following from you as soon as possible:

    1. Photo

    2. Brief informal bio

    3. Name and URL of your online publication

    4. List of other Professional memberships (if applicable)

    5. The name of your all-time favorite movie (just for fun)
    That’s it! I’d absolutely love to have you as a member but if you aren’t interested, that’s fine too. Please let me know, and I hope to hear from you soon!
