Ronan McCarthy, Digital Marketing Controller at NOW TV, gives us an insight into his love of cinema...

What was the first movie you recall seeing at the cinema?

This first movie I remember being excited to see in the cinema was Goldeneye. Bond releases have always been, and still are, a big occasion.

Do you have a favourite movie quote?

‘You ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?’ – The Joker, Batman (1989).

For the same reason the character gives - ‘I just like the sound of it.’

What is your favourite cinema?

For the last few Marvel instalments, I’ve made an effort to go to the Odeon at the Point Village. iSense is a must, particularly those bigger action films.

What is your favourite movie?

Casino Royale

What film are you looking forward to seeing?

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood & John Wick 3. I was regrettably late to the John Wick franchise, so really looking forward to seeing this one in the cinema.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

I’d like to say Zac Efron, but being realistic, Jack Reynor might be a better fit.

Which movie personalities, real or characters, would you like to invite to dinner?

Bill Murray, Taika Waititi, Daniel Craig, Jack Nicholson and of course Deadpool.

A game of poker would be a must with that group.

What is your favourite cinema ad?

I’ll have to go with NOW TV’s ‘Every Journey Must End’ Game of Thrones cinema advert. Less because of my bias to NOW TV, and more due to my obsession with Game of Thrones.
