Your friendly neighbourhood critic
My name is Alex Tipler, but I write and work under the pseudonym Alex Thomas. I am 23 and from Leicester, England. I have been writing film reviews for 6 or 7 years, my first being a review I did for the TV show Lost (2004).
I have been writing reviews ever since to keep the creative juices flowing, until last year when – after reading some of my work – my father recommended I stop ‘wasting’ my time writing only for self fulfilment, and actually publish some of my reviews. I duly did and haven’t ever looked back since!
I spend almost all my life outside of work, watching, listening to music from, and reading/writing about films. It’s what I want to do in life and it’s what I plan to do. I often re-watch films to cement my opinion (and memorise quotes for later use), if only to try and experience the joy and awe of watching a stellar movie for the first time. In my experience, there is nothing quite like it.
