[BLOG]: FMUK is 2!

2 years ago marked (after a hiccuppy start) FMUK's move to a stable host and its official beginning. Since then we've been through a lot, and seen a lot of free previews (I imagine the cumulative number is horrifyingly large), and had a lot of fun. So a big shout out to all our members, past and present, for making this (in my opinion) one of the best little corners of the net. Here's lookin' at you, kids.

Happy 2nd Birthday FMUK!!

Huge thanks to AYBG, our fearless leader, for creating this fantastic site and to him and Beate for the brilliant work they do (even while on holiday abroad no less!!!) keeping this place running smoothly (no easy feat especially with those irritating spammers around)!! We really appreciate the time and effort you guys put into this place!!! Thank you so much.

And to the rest of you FMUKKERS who make this place the awesomely addictive place it is, who are very welcoming, friendly, helpful and kinda crazy (you know who you are people!! ;) ;) ) and for bringing loads of fabulous (and some not so fabulous....remember Antichrist? :X ) free movies to us movie freaks - FMUK certainly would be nothing without you!!! So Congratulations one and all and here's to the next 2 years!!!

GO TEAM FMUK!!!!

Happy birthday FMUK!

I hadn’t realised this site had only been going for such a short period of time. I assumed it was longer because of the professional way that its run.
You’ve made me feel welcome and it’s been a great pleasure to be part of the FMUK family.

Thank you to every one that’s made it possible.

Happy birthday FMUK and congratulations on all the hard work and commitment everyone puts in.

I've been lucky and privileged enough to have seen about 150 free film which might not be the highest but WOW what a hobby.

We should all raise a glass with our evening meal tonight to everyone who makes this site so amazing...cheers
