If you are reading this, you are probably asking yourself a question: why does the internet need another film blog? The answer, my dear reader, is simple: it does not.
I need a film blog.
I currently live in a small town with very limited access to quality video rental stores and theatres. At age 25, I have entered into the teaching job market at a very poor time, and thus live with my parents till I manage to get up and about on my feet. To make some sort of cash, I work part time at store, allowing me to search for work and take interviews with greater ease.
What is most frustrating however is the lack of my fellow film fans and friends around to talk to. With nobody able to have a solid film conversation with, I have been struck with plenty to say and nobody to say it too. The end result has been my trying to hold conversations with family who simply do not care about film the way I do, nor understand why I love film the way I do. As much as I love watching films, I love thinking and discussing film more. It is half the fun.
This blog is thus a form of expressing solely for the sake of expressing my own thoughts and views, with the hopes of getting some feedback and a discussion going. It is not a blog based around reviewing the latest films in theatres (though I am sure I will do that often enough), but exploring whatever films, ideas and concepts interest me at a given moment. Classic films, new films, bad films, great films, whatever, I’m going to write about it.
So stick around, and hopefully you’ll find something of interest on here.
