Three things about myself: (1) I love learning different languages and cultures. My native language is Russian; and I also speak Spanish, French and Italian to varying degrees of proficiency. I encourage people visiting my blog to leave replies in any of the above mentioned languages if these are indeed their native languages and they find it easier to converse in them; (2) It may not be immediately apparent from my blog, but I absolutely love the horror genre, a good psychological thriller or any film which is intense and thought-provoking ; (3) I love dogs (big-to-medium built breeds), but I never ever had one. One of my dreams is to have a dog. My favourite breeds are the golden retriever, border collie and the German shepherd.

- Who is your favourite super-hero (be in it a comics or film)?
- Do you have a favourite movie which you have watched more times than any other in your life? If yes, what is it?
- Horror films are generally underappreciated. Would you agree?
