Frank Sidebottom The Home of the Retrospective


An explanation from the site owner himself

  • Do you count yourself as a film buff?
  • No… strike that… are you a certifiable film junkie?
  • Is most of your storage space taken up with DVDs and Blu-Ray discs?
  • Do you like to mix things up: old cult classics, arthouse, world cinema and the latest blockbusters?
  • Do you also occasionally dabble in other art forms that aren't brought to you via the magic of the screen - for example, live music or theatre?

This is me, Evan Popplestone… and it might be you, too. It is not meant to be a definitive or authoritative site, just one to be enjoyed out of a sheer passion for all things cinema.
