Dr Ezy MC-ing the event (pic from

Dr Richard John Swainson gained his Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Waikato in 1996 with his thesis on 'The Vietnam combat film as a contemporary genre'. He then went on to manage the Cambridge Road branch of Video Ezy for the next decade. Many cite this as the reason behind his nickname "Dr Ezy", but of course other theories abound. Richard's film reviews have graced the pages of Nexus, the radio waves of Tainui, Contact FM and Community Radio, as well as the television screens of Big TV and Regional Prime. Until 2006, Richard played host to the Cambridge Road Guy Fawkes Party. He was the MC for Circle Jerk 2006, 2007 and 2008.

In 2007 Dr Ezy headed the Film Society and opened the specialist art-house DVD rental store Auteur House, above Mark One Comics and Games. He currently co-hosts the Film Show on Community Radio with Andrew Johnstone.
