The mission statement of this site is to badger you all with our thoughts on various aspects of pop-culture. Hopefully those of you reading this ‘about us’ section want to know these thoughts, but if not I would invite you to partake, as they’re pretty cool. Anyway this site is run by three amazing Canadian individuals (no biases here) who love every aspect of pop-culture, even the bad ones. This site will act as a safe space for all of you to relieve the stress that infects your daily lives, or possibly worsen it if our opinions anger you. If that is the case, just remember that you can close the tab. It’s up on the right hand side of your screen, but I would recommend you not click it and put up with us anyway. We hope you enjoy your time with us.

Artur Galvao is the Managing Editor of Talkies Network and studies philosophy at the University of Toronto. He enjoys all aspects of nerd culture and feels entitled to share his worthless opinions with the others, thus a website is born.

Creative and tenacious writer with a passion for public affairs, and arts and culture journalism. I will be contributing to the Talkies Network on the basis of arts and culture, and its impact on entertainment and media vices.

You can often find her listening to broadway cast-recordings or rewatching the Outlander series on a loop.
Content Editor & Staff Writer
Nick is a staff writer and content editor for Talkies Network. He studies Political Science, Classical Civilizations, and Cinema Studies at the University of Toronto. In other words... a future barista in training. His love for pop culture (especially movies, comics, and music... Wes Anderson if you are reading this: you are amazing) and an ever so slight hint of a want-to-be-hipster persona makes him an ideal candidate to indoctrinate everyone (like the Reapers in Mass Effect) into reading and loving his articles.
Film & Television Reporter
Film & Television Reporter and Contributing Writer for Talkies Network. I'm currently studying English at Florida International University. I do a killer Bane impression and I might be in love with Tom Hardy.
I'm a Gaming Reporter and Contributing Writer for Talkies Network. When not playing video games, I like to sleep or read scientific journals (because I'm a proud nerd). I also watch a lot of Manchester United so hit me up!
Film Student, Salesmen, Nerd, Sports fan, Star Wars Freak (also nerdy)

Many phrases describe Usman- wannabe writer, armchair developer, Brad Pitt lookalike - but none describe him more accurately than "enthusiast of words", or more colloquially "guy futilely fighting the death of the written format". He may not be a wordsmith just yet, but nonetheless loves to write and write about his favorite forms of writing.
Three friends talking about movies, video games, comic-books and anime. We do videos and articles. Be warned, you chose this. Site created by Nick Poulimenakos, Artur Galvao and Mathew 'JJ' Simoes.
