2 min read

Hey everyone, my name is Alex and I’m a content writer for Kernel. I write breaking news as well as original content on all things movies. 

I love working for kernel as it means I can talk about films to my hearts content without driving my friends and family crazy in the meantime!

Where are you from?

I’m from and live in the wonderful city of Manchester, England.

What’s your earliest movie memory?

When I was about 6 or 7 years old, a relative gave me Batman Returns on video. Little did I know it was a 15 certificate! So, I started watching it, but only got about 10 minutes in before my mum noticed. She turned it off immediately. I finally watched the rest of the movie about 10 years later. 

What are your top 5 movies?

  1. American Psycho
  2. I’m Not There
  3. The Wall
  4. Don’t Look Back
  5. Bowling for Columbine

What’s a movie trailer that you love?

I loved the Infinity War trailers when they came out, I’ve probably never been so excited for a movie, besides Endgame of course. They showed just the right amount to get people excited without major spoilers. They even went as far as to include parts in the trailers that weren’t in the film! That’s dedication! 

What’s a movie related collection you’re proud of?

I have a huge Blu-ray collection which i’m proud of. Within that my favourites are my steelbooks, which I have roughly 40 of and the films from the criterion collection that I own. I think the American Psycho steelbook is my favourite and The Before Trilogy criterion is amazing as well!
