I love stories, and movies are a beautiful and engrossing way to tell stories. Since I watch a lot of movies, I’ll be dedicating my Wednesday’s column to reviews.
I’ll be judging movies on Story, Characters, Dialogue, Visuals, and Fun. Each will be worth 1 star (.5 is allowed).
This should give my reviews a standard that will allow me to compare them.
I have watched movies my whole life.
I have a degree in Communications specializing in media creation and analysis. I worked as a videographer and as a video lab technician. I have 4 published novels and have been writing in this blog for over a decade. I help host Nights at the Round Table for Silver Stag.
I also used to work at a video store. For my younger audience, that’s where you could rent VHS tapes to bring home and watch movies.
Movies, like all stories, are meant to make us feel and experience something. They are entertainment and emotion. A good movie can make you feel something, a great movie can make everyone in the room feel the same thing.
If you think the acronym SJW is an insult and that political correctness is a bad thing… move along, these reviews aren’t for you.
I consider representation, punching up, and social messages to be essential in a good film.
Well that’s about all. See you Wednesday for the first film review.
