A recent arrival in Glasgow and a student of Literature and Film, Luke wants to exercise his literary muscles on something other than dry academic essays. A devoted patron of the silver screen and its smaller sibling, he’s into anything involving moving pictures, but he’d rather they were cut with some verve. An adherent of no particular genre, he puts SciFi and existential ruminations such as Moon and Synecdoche: New York at the top of his list of favourite films, as well as The Life Aquatic and Memories Of Murder - he's ever a champion of the plucky underdog. He is also a fully paid up Fannibal and X-Phile, because TV never really got any better than Mulder and Scully. Despite being a big fan of comics, he’s not convinced about this Marvel Cinematic Universe business, so for more caustic thoughts on that, and also happier thoughts about boardgames, you can find him at @fulloffeathers and so-easily-forgotten.blogspot.co.uk
