Everything about film screams out to me. Why? Because it is a visual type of art that feels different every time I view it.
The absolute beauty of film is that it is a combination of talent that creates a masterpiece as a whole. Ever doubt that group projects can create something magnificent? Well, film counters that argument in an almost mystifying way. That’s why I love watching movies so much (yes, even those that don’t turn out so well). It’s open to interpretation to the point where I could watch a film over and over again and still have a new experience because there is always something else to take from it.
I do understand that this isn’t the case for every film out there. There have been a ton of movies that I have watched and they didn’t excite me. There are movies that I have seen and probably never will again because they simply seem to have no point, bore me, or have completely repulsed me. This doesn’t mean I’m not going to ignore the fact that they are out there, it only means that film is just like any other form of art – open to judgement and (as I have stated above) interpretation.
My purpose of this blog is not to review films in an analytic way (talk about boring), but rather explain why certain films stood out to me in either a positive or negative light. I will consider different aspects of the film, of course, as well as state what “spoke to me” (so to say). Whether or not you decide to watch these films based on my judgments is completely up to you. I’m just putting out what you might expect, or (if you have already seen the film) give you another point of view.
