Much like most things in my life, my taste in movies can best be described as …. well … eclectic. Part of being disabled and chronically ill means I have time. Of course not time that I can spend doing productive things. Hah! Nope, that takes too much energy and concentration. But I often have time to casually put on movies and T.V. and to form some opinions. Another part of being chronically ill is that my memory isn’t what it used to be. When asked “What movies do you like?” I’m often left going “Oh! Movies! I like movies.. you know.. the ones with the action and the sci fi and stuff.. those!”
This movie review blog will be one part journal and one part seeing things from my perspective. In reality I think my husband is tired of me telling him movie reviews for things he hasn’t seen and will never watch. Perhaps his eager “You should write movie reviews!” is just a way to stop me from talking his ear off. Although he does claim I’m good at writing and can “describe things in a way that gets you to understand the feeling of a movie.”
It’s important to note that people like what they like. I’ll be telling you what I don’t or do like, in addition to areas of improvement. I’ll be honest when there are things that have a special place in my heart despite any plot holes. *Cough* National Treasure *Cough* I love seeing stories told in a new way and feeling very “real” or visually stunning. Hello The Fall. But I also love a fun time! Throw some B Movies my direction! We’ll sit and riff them Mystery Science Theater 3000 style. I also like to view movies within their own genre. Can Deep Blue Sea be compared to Jaws? I’d give them both 10 hearts!
Grab your popcorn and let’s get watching!
