This blog is mostly about movie reviews, but sometimes it’ll branch out into TV reviews and occasionally blogs about things which might only be vaguely, tangentially connected to movies or TV, or basically anything else which piques my interest.
There’s a search button at the foot of the page if you want to see whether I’ve already reviewed a film you’re interested in, and if I haven’t – feel free to send me a message or leave a comment on the blog’s Facebook page asking me to pull my finger out and review it already.
I’m just a guy who loves the cinema and movies in general. Yeah, to be honest, I’ll mostly be covering genre stuff and a few cult TV shows but occasionally, I’ll watch a grown up movie and I’ll post a review of that too.
I don’t get to premieres or press screenings, I just go to the cinema as often as I can (and as often as my family will let me!) and I try to get to see films as soon after release as possible.
I started off giving films a score out of 10 on Facebook which became a couple of lines of comment and a score out of 10 and then a paragraph (or two) and a score and then I found I wanted to say more, so I’ve moved my reviews off Facebook and into the blogosphere (do people still say blogosphere?). Hopefully, my Facebook friends who read my reviews will follow them to the blog and who knows, I might pick up a few other readers as well.
I try to avoid spoilers – at least for new films. If I’m doing old films or TV, I’ll discuss plot details if needed and although I have a bit of understanding of the technical side of film-making, I generally come at a film by how it made me feel and how much I enjoyed it. I’m also often accompanied by my seven year old son The Mertmas (not his real name) so you get two perspectives for the price of one and if you’re wondering if a movie is suitable for your kids, this might just be the blog for you.
Thanks for stopping by and reading. Please leave a comment or question or suggestion of a movie or TV show I should review.
