Movie Review Segment
~ 2 Minute Read
As this blog is fairly new for me I am still making essential decisions on where I want it to go and what topics I would like to share. As a start up this is something I enjoy doing and would love to experience further. On the search for my passion I have been finding ways to combine my love for all my hobbies. It started by combining art and the computer which implanted my desire to become a Graphic Designer. Next was YouTube and design so I resurrected my old YouTube channel and began implementing design tutorials on there. Next, I began with my blog which is still a little bit sporadic. I have the understanding that since this is my portfolio website to show my design skills that my posts should be about design but I also have an urge to throw myself into it more. That’s where my more personal posts have come from and I like the sincerity I can bring along with that. I’ve always enjoyed writing my thoughts down as it helps me to gather them more clearly and have logical outcomes and morals form out of it. Another fascination I have always had is with movies.
I remember being in elementary school having to fill out our journals. Mine would always be topped with a picture of Blockbuster or Rogers Video with writing below of the latest movie we rented. One of my favourite past-times is going to the Drive-In theater (another combination of two things I love: the outdoors & movies). It’s something I have always taken an interest in; not sure if for the acting and chemistry between characters, being interested in the production or just overall interest in all the stories that come out of it. Now that we have films at our fingertips with services such as Netflix it has become so much easier to catch up on movies. I like that I can now talk to my friends about a certain film and know that they can get home and watch it immediately.
I thought since I am such a lover of film and frankly appreciate every genre of movie out there, I could begin a movie review portion of my blog. That way, my time wasted watching movies would never truly be wasted. Also, I wouldn’t have to keep the fascination of underrated stories to myself. Sometimes, I fall in love with a movie that I try to talk to other people about only to find out they have never seen or heard of it. This is a disgrace. It’s truthfully frustrating to me that there’s no way to see all of the movies in the world. The same way there is no way to listen to all the songs in the world. It makes me sad that there could be so many masterpieces out there which will never reach my eyes or ears simply because of being unaware. But we can try our best to soak as much in as possible.
This is just an introduction into what will be to come. I will write about some recent movies I have seen and look forward to getting comments back and starting a discussion. I am always intrigued when I hear people debating about movies because everyone has a different perception. It all depends on your state of mind, your feelings towards the actors/actresses, the soundtrack. All of these aspects have personal connections to each one of us in different ways which can change the way you feel about the entirety of the movie.
If you have any requests of movies you would like me to review, leave a comment. I am trying to come up with a schedule for my posts but it might take me a while to get used to. Keep your eyes open for my first review on Monday. I will try to keep it consistent as a “Movie Review Monday” situation. Or I will at least try. I’ll see you Monday for my first review!
