My name is Lucy Buglass, and I created Lucy Goes To Hollywood back in February 2017 as a way to share my thoughts with other film fans. As a Film Graduate and life-long cinephile, films take up a large part of my free time.

I love the way we can tell a story visually and in so many different ways, and it’s something I’m hugely passionate about. That sense of escapism that comes with watching a film is something many of us can experience, and I believe film is meant to be shared. That’s why this blog exists.

On this blog I explore a variety of genres and types, with a special focus on independent short films. Short Film Saturdays was created to support filmmakers and showcase their work.

I’ve always enjoyed short films as it’s fascinating to see how stories can be told in under an hour, sometimes no more than a few minutes. I’m constantly blown away by how talented people are.

Outside of short films, I’m always doing my best to review the latest cinema releases. Being a proud member of Odeon Limitless certainly helps with this! I also review Netflix and Amazon Prime releases from time to time. 

When I’m not writing for this blog, I also contribute reviews to JumpCut Online, The Horrorcist, and Love Horror. It’s been a real pleasure working with fellow film fans and having the opportunity to write for such great websites.

In 2020, I became a Rotten Tomatoes approved film critic, which is an absolute honour. I’m now able to add my reviews to the Tomatometer, and I’m still starstruck to be among such big names in the industry.

I am open for collaborations and events, so if you would like to partner with me in any way, you can either reach me on Twitter @LGTHBlog or email me at If I am free and able to, I will most likely say yes.

I’m looking forward to seeing how can I grow the blog over the coming years, as I’ve already been overwhelmed by the growth so far. 

Thank you for reading and being part of my film journey!
