About Me
Hi Everyone,

I'm Matty and I'm the founder here on Crosby.uk. I chair the board of directors, who are a great team and together we run this site along with our fabulous volunteers! I live in Crosby (by the beach) and have done for as far as I remember.

I like cycling, going to the gym and going out with friends.

Hopefully you like our site consider getting actively involved, perhaps even as a volunteer!
Movies
Back to the Future(1985) Directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Silence of the Lambs(1991) A psychopath nicknamed Buffalo Bill is murdering women across the Midwest. Believing it takes one to know one, the FBI sends Agent Clarice Starling to interview a demented prisoner who may provide clues to the killer's actions. That prisoner is psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant, diabolical cannibal who agrees to help Starling only if she'll feed his morbid curiosity with details of her own complicated life. "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti”"

E.T.(1982) Directed by Steven Spielberg
There seems to be an E.T. backlash and I don't know why. The decency of this movie is overwhelming. It should reassure every person that there is a true goodness out there.

Saboter(1942) Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
And yet another Hitchcock. And another early thriller with set pieces you can't forget. The Statue of Liberty sequence is one of the all-time greats.

Apocalypse Now(1979) Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
"I love the smell of napalm in the morning." The first half makes you feel that war isn't so bad and the second half makes sure you'll never feel that way again.

The Godfather(1972) Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
A perfectly told story. Coppola takes his time to tell a good story. Seemingly a lost art. A movie of amazing conviction.

The Godfather, Part II(1974) Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
Not as good as the first, but then again, not many are. Still a wonderful sequel with wonderful insights into Michael Corleone. Bob De Niro's not a bad addition either.

Vertigo(1958) Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Mesmerizing film with almost no dialogue. The performances of Stewart and Novak had to be perfect and they were. Hitchcock shines a light on his own obsessions.

The Third Man(1949) Directed by Carol Reed
Flawless performances by Joseph Cotten, Valli, and Orson Welles. This movie not only has the best entrance in history, but also my favourite exit in the wonderfully sombre finish.

Gates of Heaven(1978) Directed by Errol Morris
Roger Ebert mentions this fascinating documentary about pet cemeteries to be among the ten best movies ever made and after two years of searching for the out of print video, I have to agree. The film that comes closest to exploring the mysteries of life and death

Boogie Nights(1997) Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Does anybody realize yet how great this movie is? The group of people most affected by the move from the free love seventies to the conservative Reagan eighties, the pornography industry struggles to make the adjustment.

A Clockwork Orange(1971) Directed by Stanley Kubrick
Kubrick's masterpiece of sex and violence is both disturbing and entertaining. The cyclical story telling is masterful.

This Is Spinal Tap(1982) Directed by Rob Reiner
What a comedy should be. Respects the intelligence of the viewer to get the jokes. This movie must be seen many times to get all the jokes.

Dead Man Walking(1995) Directed by Tim Robbins
A movie that truly has a heart. Penn and Sarandon give their best performances in this death row drama.

The Shawshank Redemption(1994) Directed by Frank Darabont
What a great story. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman are magnificent in a story about hope and love and the things that get in the way. Listening to Freeman's narration is worth the price of admission.

Forrest Gump(1994) Directed by Robert Zemeckis
I didn't care for Forrest the first time I saw the movie. It grows on me every time I watch it now. I don't know what I was missing now.

To Kill A Mockingbird(1962) Directed by Robert Mulligan
There's something very magical about this simple story. The children seem to play in a way that makes all other movies seem fake.

Schindler's List(1993) Directed by Steven Spielberg
A movie I underrated for a long time because I saw it on video. I finally saw it on the big screen and I don't know how I missed this amazing story the first time.

TaxiDriver(1976) Directed by Martin Scorsese
Fascinating depiction of urban breakdown. De Niro has never been better.

Eyes Wide Shut(1999) Directed by Stanley Kubrick
Kubrick's last movie is also one of his best. Rich set pieces, swift moviemaking, a gut wrenching score, and a story so involving that your eyes will be wide open.

The Fugitive(1993) Directed by Andrew Davis
Another great thriller. For my money, Harrison Ford's best performance, although I know I'll get many dissenting opinions.

Sunset Boulevard(1950) Directed by Billy Wilder
Eerie story of man moving to Hollywood and ending up dead in the swimming pool instead of the secretarial pool.

American Beauty(1999) Directed by Sam Mendes
Biting satire of American families gone wrong is wonderfully acted, but this is director of photography Conrad Hall's movie. A beautiful movie.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery(1997) Directed by Jay Roach
Yeah, baby! A movie that's funny over and over again. Most impressive in how many jokes they have going on in the screen at one time.

Jaws(1975) Directed by Steven Spielberg
What gets lost in the "theme park" around this movie is that it's an amazing thriller. Spielberg's nod to Hitchcock.

Strangers on a Train(1950) Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
You kill my guy, I'll kill yours. Make sure you both agree to the deal. Hitchcock's thriller is wildly entertaining and has been copied many times.
