I popped my cinema going cherry with The Muppets Go To Hollywood back when I was 3 years old. From there on in it was a diet of Superman and Star Wars, hence Star Wars and Superman are in my all time greats. I’ve collected alot of stuff over the years including a self propper upper ILM calculator and an pretty awesome For The Birds poster, amongst hundreds of other bits of movie related gear, not to mention DVD’s and Blu-Rays.

My first movie was Basil The Great Mouse Detective, which began my great love affair with Disney cartoons. My tastes soon evolved to include science fiction and horror, Evil Dead 2 being my all time favorite horror just for its perfect mixture of horror and comedy and down right craziness. I love all aspects of film making, from the camera work, to the music, but above all else, the dialogue. A good script is the most important thing to me, and I annoy my friends on a daily basis endlessly quoting lines at them, sometimes from movies they have never heard of. I have an ever growing collection of DVD's to which I while away my hours watching, my pride and joy being Chasing Amy which I once, I am proud to say, watched four times in one day.

My first movies growing up were the original Star Wars Trilogy, still some of my all time favourites, they’re justtimeless. One of my most memorable movies I’ve ever seen in a cinema was “Walk The Line” just for the reactionfrom the audience. I’ve never seen such reverence before or since, it was incredible, no mobile phones going off,no chatter just anticipation for the opening scene.
Love going to the cinema, I’m usually one of the last to leave I always have to read the credits and find out who worked behind the scenes. I have a substantial DVD collectionI tend to watch them over and over, most prized in the collection are a set of Sherlock Holmes movies from the1940’s starring Basil Rathbone & Nigel Bruce. Just great to watch, black & white, no effects just untouched and ofthe time amazing!
The site was originally founded (June 2009) as somewhere to host Vic's reviews for his old night time radio talk show. And from there the site started growing into news, views, podcasts and of course, the reviews.The Movie Bit aims to provide as much movie related information to the web as possible. Be it news, views, reviews, observations, interviews and basically all things Movies, from Ireland and everywhere else. We're an ever evolving site, priding itself on being digestible to readers.
In November 2010, the site was nominated, shortlisted and made the final of the Irish Web Awards. Unfortunately it didn't win, but it was a pretty decent achievement for a one man show at the time. 2011 saw the website being nominated for The Irish Web Awards. In 2012 the site was nominated and a finalist in the Irish Web Awards as well as gaining another nomination and finalist place in the Irish Blog Awards.
