To simply put it, this is the start of a film review blog. After much thought, when the idea was suggested to me, I’ve decided that it’s actually the most genius thing for me to do, rather than take straight to Twitter to excitedly rave about the next film that came out which I saw that absolutely changed my life.
I’ve always been a huge film fan. I can’t even pinpoint when films exactly started meaning so much to me, because it’s kind of been this present thing in my life since I can even remember. I mean the earliest film I probably remember seeing was the second Harry Potter movie, or Shrek, maybe, but I’m still watching them. Not just film, but television and theatre as well, and well basically anything that is performing arts. But film in particular, is just this experience for me every time, and without it, I don’t know what I’d be or what I’d talk about.
Anyway, this blog isn’t just about my undeniable appreciation for the Shrek film series (even though, I mean come on, they’re pretty great movies). I’m here to talk about my thoughts on film, and let me tell you, it’s quite a jump in the deep end of the pool to just say “I’m gonna start a film review blog” because personally I’m not a writer or film student or really anything film or literature related, I’m actually a graphic design student, but who says this can’t be a great hobby, eh? And also, where the hell do you start, which film?
One of the reasons I realised a film review blog is actually a genius idea, is because I guess I’ve always wanted to express how I feel about a film, rather than having professional film critics tell me how to. This blog is a haven, a ‘safe space’, so to speak, where I’ll post about the latest film I’ve seen, my thoughts, and perhaps any other film related stuff as well.
So without further ado, I open this space, to all who wish to listen to my ramblings.
