Carley Tauchert

Carley began her journey into the world of cinema at the age of five by going to see My Little Pony: The Movie. Since then she has been obsessed with all things film and holds a huge girl crush on John Hughes, Kevin Smith and Joss Whedon. Favourite things include 80s teen movies, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, cinematic action heroes, 30 Rock, 90s teen movies, Castle and anything starring Bradley Cooper. A glutton for punishment, she will review things others wouldn’t and is excellent at naming random movies on TV by just watching a ten second clip.
