Today we celebrate Owen the Tonk our movie loving colleague whose posts were a popular part of our blog.
Late last week we heard that Owen had passed away, and we wanted to celebrate his gifts to us in a proper post. Owen was an habitue of #nipclub as well as a discerning reviewer of the latest films to hit the cinema screens. We are thankful for Owen’s company and his perceptive intelligence and we join Brian and his family for Thankful Thursday to celebrate a fine friend.
As a critic Owen was clear eyed and honest in his views. He was prepared to engage in discussion to back up his opinions at any time and always invited comment in every review. Some of our favourite posts from Owen were his annual Oscars® reviews (2016 and 2017). Not only was he a keen moviegoer, Owen had an amazingly successful Oscars prediction rate, often doing better than some online movie ‘critics’. He also backed up his opinions with why a movie was good and why it should win.
With his dad Randy, Owen provided us with much fun and humour, and when they loved a movie you knew it!
Thank you Owen for your hard work for Dash Kitten, we miss you.
