About Us

At On The Couch, we’re less concerned with technical experience, relevant educations and good grammar, and more concerned with an eye for a winning plot, an ear for a classic one-liner and a commitment to the cushion.  The Couch currently seats four:

Willy’s dream movie is an apocalypse action/thriller done in comic book/graphic novel style and starring Jessica Alba and Brendan Gleeson.  He’s yet to find it, but would like to see a combined sequel to 28 Days Later and Sin City.

He cried in Little Miss Sunshine and only pretends to like the Godfather movies. He celebrates Jackie Chan’s birthday every year.

Pecs has no food, has no job and his pets’ heads are falling off.

By day he runs a worm farm in a small town where the beer flows like wine and the women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano.

Dicker’s dream movie would have a soundtrack by Gustavo Santaolalla, a screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, a cameo by Bill Murray and a car-chase through Monaco.

And he’d watch it while eating a duck, roasted slowly in a scintillating blend of 11 Chinese herbs and spices. With extra duck.

The Cat spends almost all his time sitting cross-legged on the cold floor of a small, rented flat above Sydney’s second worst Indian restaurant.  It is here he watches pirated videos from a seemingly endless array of cardboard boxes.

On the few occasions that he does leave his flat, you can find The Cat riding the monorail in an infinite, ever-tightening loop – working hard on his script for a motion picture adaptation of the 90’s video game “Lemmings”.
