Daniel Abbott

DANHaving ventured into the Bog of Eternal Stench and come out smelling like shite, Dan is quick to recognise the fetid smear of celluloid garbage. Born and raised in Brecon, Wales, he learned the gruesome consequences of sheep tipping at an early age. He has written numerous (increasingly despairing) articles for Aberystwyth Student Media and has nightmares about Uwe Boll. He enjoys consuming terrible media, labouring under the tragically misjudged pretension that it will make his enjoyment of good media all the sweeter. He hopes to one day be able to pinpoint the downfall of Western civilization when the four-hour cut of Transformers 6: Optimus of Arabia breaks $5 billion at the worldwide box office. He has yet to shake hands with his auteur hero, Tommy Wiseau.
