Dallas spent 8 years managing an art house cinema in Aberdeen but now he is focusing his time on film journalism in an effort to become Scotland's answer to Mark Kermode. He is also a two-time winner of the Empire magazine Bastard Hard Movie Quiz so is a handy guy to have on your pub quiz team.

"The Legend Ends" says the marketing for The Dark Knight Rises, so to celebrate the conclusion of Christopher Nolan's superb trilogy, we at LITM are bringing you a whole Batcave's worth of features on the caped crusader and his fight against Gotham's underworld...
It's time... to face... the music... as Rock of Ages hits us with its best shot, making the leap from the theatre to the silver screen.
