FAQ

Is this blog a recent project?

The easy answer is yes.

Incidentally, I remember how I wrote every review except my first, but even my first review was from a memorable movie experience. I stumbled upon two family members in the theater, and I was with one of my friends! Kinda neat.

But anyway, it all feels like yesterday, is my point. You could also say I’ve been doing this blog for forever, because I’ve gone through over seven-hundred movies and countless ideas in the two and a half years of its existence.

What’s your favorite movie?

Pulp Fiction is a very special film for me, especially when, despite my mindset that rejects watching films I’ve already reviewed, I could watch it any day. I’ve watched it with friends and convinced friends to watch it just so I know I’m not the only one who thinks it’s such a wonderful movie. It’s funny and thrilling, which is personally what I’m a sucker for in movies. It’s also very, very quotable.

I know you didn’t ask, but I reject the belief that Citizen Kane is the greatest American movie ever made. It’s a classic, and I do love it, but my personal vote is The Birth of a Nation. If you can sit through three hours of a silent that is 99 years old, and still horrifying enough that you may never want to see it again, it’s worth being pulled into.

How many hits does your blog have?

For those curious, there’s a hit counter on the sidebar.

How did your blog come about?

I always credit it with my involvement in websites such as Flixster and Everyone’s a Critic, where there’s no restrictions as to who can rate and write about movies. The turning point, when a general pen-to-paper hobby transformed into a passion and a blog, was when I took a class at a writing camp specifically for writing reviews. Now that was exciting.

Who’s your favorite director?

Currently, I’d go with Woody Allen and Quentin Tarantino, though their movies are as much about writing as they are creativity, so they’d be favorite writer-directors. If we’re talking just directors, it’s the same two people I would choose when my love for film was started, and the two that gave birth to that love: Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg.

    Hey! So I just wanted to say that I didn’t know how serious you were into all this movie reviews and blogging. I read a couple of your reviews and they are great!

  • Quick Recommendations

    No film is recommendable to everyone, because if it strongly appeals to many audiences, it's going to be poorly received by at least one audience. These 25 classics, however, I would recommend to eight and a half, if not nine in every ten people.
