Reviewer Profile: freddy

Real name: David Martin

freddy's Bio

I've seen movies. Lots of movies. Just not too many lately. But hey, now that I am writing for nofreelist, maybe I'll see some more! If you think I should, please send me the appropriate funds.

I like movies that you feel the need to talk about for hours afterwards. I am of the opinion that most of what comes out of Hollywood is rubbish. And I am really, really, sick of that voiceover guy on all the big previews.

I love going to the Astor Theatre in Melbourne, and if they ever do a double feature of Ghostbusters (1984) and Snatch (2000), I will be there and laughing so hard that I won't be able to breathe.
