dsc_3279One Large Popcorn, Please! is a film blog published by Tom Parry, a twenty-something male whose appreciation for movies unexpectedly grew into a passion.

Tom’s blog features a number of articles related to the world of cinema, including reviews of new releases, thoughts on classic movies, opinion pieces on the industry and the occasional post about television.

With a special interest in blockbusters, you can expect to see Tom writing about the biggest films of the day, but also be prepared to witness some of the hidden gems of cinema, a reflection of Tom’s eclectic tastes.

Tom is currently working as a journalist with the Gippsland Times and Latrobe Valley Express in eastern Victoria, where he writes regular film column with colleague Stefan Bradley. He has previously made contributions to RPP FM and SYN Media; additionally, he has written articles for The AU Review and YO Bendigo, and occasionally contributes to Rating Frames.

Not to be outdone, Tom is one of the three co-creators of Right On Track, a podcast devoted to the children’s television series Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends. Since launching in 2019, the podcast has gained a cult following and featured interviews the likes of composer Mike O’Donnell, and art director Rob Gauld-Galliers.

One Large Popcorn, Please! is my go-to place for all things movies. 
“Before I hand over my hard-earned money, I trust Tom to give me an honest and insightful review of the latest blockbuster, or even a golden oldie.  His section on television has saved me from hours of boredom and directed me towards some hidden treasures. 
“Tom is an Island of Logic in an Ocean of Gibberish.”
– Geoffrey Johnstone, RPP FM
