So lets have a little break from the new movies and go watch some fireworks!!!
While I have a week with no new releases I had one small thing I wanted to say to those of you who take the time to read my posts. As I look throughout the internet, I find a great number of movie reviewers. This could be discouraging and make me want to give it up, but there are several reasons why I don’t, and I figured I would mention a little about it today. First, there are the professional critics. For years I have noticed that I seldom agree with the these guys. I think it’s because they are part of the “in” crowd in the movie business, so as a result sometimes they make up their mind before they even see the film. Secondly, they see so many films, that they get tired of the ordinary stuff that people who only see a few movies a year, love, but are blown away by some out of the ordinary, bizarre, artsy film that leaves us regular folk saying…..”I paid $13.50 for this?? What was that???”. This is because they are excited by something they’ve never seen before. I try to be the everyman movie lover who watches a lot of films on DVD, but try to keep a regular guy view on what’s decent and what’s not worth the time.
But there are a lot of ordinary guys out there doing reviews too, so what makes me different than the rest? Well, I always have my eye out for those out of the mainstream films that come along from time to time that are hidden gems. I seek out very unusual films, and often find something very unique that is really good, and I try to pass those things on to you. My “Christmas Project” that I have done for the last two years is about the only place I have seen that reviews and rates almost every Christmas film that comes on TV. In November and December of each year, I have rated literally hundreds of Holiday films on TV, and that is unique to this blog. I try to find outstanding biographies, documentaries, and films put together on a shoestring budget that are made by people who simply love to make movies, and some of them are darn good.
Of course I will always get the most hits on the big blockbusters like “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ or the latest Batman or Spiderman film, but that is not why I do this blog. It is to find those out of the way shining stars that you may have missed. I hope I accomplish that from time to time. One of these days I’m going to make a recap of all the hidden gems I have uncovered. In the meantime, keep reading and I’ll try to give you my honest opinion on the ordinary and extraordinary.
