This is my first post. I am not really good at words and things, but I am going to do my best.
The point of this website is to talk about movies. All types (…okay, most types) of movies. I’m sure that you are aware of that by the title of this site. I know that you must be thinking, “Who is this girl? Why is she here? What does she know about movies and the entertainment industry in general?” Well, to answer those questions, I’m not really anybody. I love movies. I love the escapism they can bring, as well as the harsh reality that they can throw at you at a moments notice. I don’t live anywhere near Hollywood or anywhere where they make films on a regular basis. I am here because in recent months I have noticed a real interesting disconnect between what critics say and what actual people think. Sure, there are some movies where I agree with what the critics say, but most of the time I don’t understand why they say what they say. Now mind you, I have no training in the film industry, but the whole point of a film is to entertain the people who watch it. Right? That must be the whole point. So critics state a movie sucks because some things in the movie aren’t done “well.” Yet most of the people who see it won’t notice whatever the critics said that made it bad. You can see that something might be off in a movie, but you still leave the theater happy and satisfied. With that said, I try to wait to give my opinion on a movie until I’ve seen it, without really seeing what the critics say.
Now after my small little rant here is what I want to do with this blog. First I want to talk/ review films that I see in the theater. Not only that but movies I haven’t seen at all. That means old movies, new movies, tv movies, cable movies, everything. For some of that, I will need your help. If you have a movie you want me to talk about. I will watch it and let you know what I think.
I also want to talk about upcoming films being talked about or just announced. Trailers are big for me as well. I like trailers. I can tell you what I am excited to see and why.
Another thing I want to do is compare movies: genres, remakes, actors performances, etc. For this, I could also use your help, to think up different categories for me to go through. I will tell you now that I do have some in mind that I am excited to share with you.
I hope that you will come on this journey with me and have a good time.
