Projection Booth

My name is JJ McDermott and I am a film enthusiast! (I am also an archaeologist but that’s a whole other blog that I do not have time to write)

I live in Fremantle, Australia but by birth I am Irish and I have a deeply rooted connection with my home in Lughawnagh, north Co. Leitrim.

In the Lobby, I provide a short introduction to the blog.

In the Auditorium, I will post short essays on the theme of cinema. From time to time, I will post film reviews – these may be new releases, re-releases or films from the past.

The frequency of these posts will be scattered and random. They are general musings on film and other associated media – nothing more, nothing less (although there is a chance they will be quite less).

I now regularly receive quality posts from Alan Matthews, a fellow film lover from Scotland, Robin Stevens, an anthropologist and archaeologist from Perth, Australia and Annabelle Davis, also an archaeologist based in Brisbane, Australia. In fairness, this trio make the blog more widely appealing and entertaining with their passionate and encyclopedic knowledge of cinema from around the world, past and present.

If any of these blog posts interest you or you would like to add something further, leave a note on the contact page and we’ll go from there.

Please note: I am all for further guest posts so get in touch.

In the Movies Listings section, you can now alphabetically search for all films reviewed or discussed on this blog – links are provided to take you to your destination. Enjoy!
