About John-Charles Holmesone of us since 11:40 AM on 02.10.2015

John-Charles is a guy who loves to watch and talk about movies and culture. He'll watch just about anything and love to discuss it, even if he hates it.

Though in particular he does have favorite movies ranging from the artsy stuff like Brazil and El Topo to the really fun modern stuff like Hot Fuzz or The LEGO Movie. Nothing's too serious or too weird for him, and he, in fact, open embraces the weird and uncanny with open arms.

As a freelance artist and designer, he also really loves animation and cartoons as well, so if you meet him at a party and feel like having an hour-long conversation, just ask him for his thoughts on the latest animated feature.

Oh yeah, he also loves Back to the Future. A lot.
