CURNBLOG appears in ‘The Guardian’


Darth Vader: Conflicted bad guy

Hi all,

I thought I’d drop CURNBLOG readers a quick note on some exciting news. Earlier this week, I wrote a piece for The Guardian as part of their Clip Joint article series, which also featured a short blurb promoting the work we’re doing here at CURNBLOG. The piece was on Conflicted Bad Guys in Cinema, and generated a considerable amount of conversation amongst readers (260+ comments at last count).

As a result, I’m very excited to say that we’ve seen a significant spike in traffic on the site. Ultimately, CURNBLOG is about giving film writers an opportunity to express their views to as large and engaged an audience as possible – and we’ll continue to work towards opening up new audiences as much as possible.

But this also means we’re also on the lookout for enthusiastic and talented writers!

We’re looking for eager cinephiles, movie buffs and any other aficionados of the moving image who wish to express their passion via the written form. If you’re interested in writing for CURNBLOG (whether it be once or on an ongoing basis), and have an idea, synopsis or even a complete piece of writing that you’d like to submit, simply email us directly at and we’ll be in touch at the earliest possible convenience.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

James Curnow is an obsessive cinephile and the owner and head editor of CURNBLOG. His work as a film journalist has been published in a range of print and digital publications, including The Guardian, Broadsheet and Screening the Past. James is currently working through a PhD in Film Studies, focused primarily on issues of historical representation in Contemporary Hollywood cinema.
