So then, I’m Richard. I’m from Manchester, England. What else do you want to know?
Well, why am I writing about films? Sometime in 2011, I started to get a little irritated by people talking about movies and me not being able to join in the conversations. You see, I was (and still am) someway behind a lot of my friends in terms of ‘classic’ films seen. Other people seemed to get a little annoyed at me for having not seen so many ‘must-see’ movies.”You’ve never seen The Godfather? You’ve not seen Back To The Future? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?”. You get the idea.
So, at about 12:02 on January 1st, 2012, whilst scrabbling round for a New Years Resolution that I could keep, I decided on a fairly simple “Watch more films”. That wouldn’t prove difficult – I reckon I must have watched more films in 2012 than I did in the whole of the previous ten years. And do you know what? I enjoyed it. They’re quite good, films, aren’t they? (Incidentally, I have now seen The Godfather and Back To The Future).
Now being more of a cinema goer/film watcher than I previously was, I actually have opinions on the films I see. Inspired by some other film blogs, I’ve decided to try my hand at writing about them. Hopefully you’ll like the reviews.
I’ll happily try pretty much any kind of film, though you’re unlikely to find many horror reviews on these pages.
Finally, I’m not trying to pass myself as some kind of expert. I am most certainly not one.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy the blog!
