Looking forward in hopeful expectation
Despite my pessimistic view of my future, I have decided to look at what I can do in the coming year, something a little different. I have thrown around a few ideas but one has come up as a really interesting one. I have a large collection of DVDs, thanks to my particular brand of depression that manifests with the compulsion to collect things, but I have never really done anything with my love of the films and TV shows I love. The idea I had was that, perhaps, I should write reviews of and commentaries on the films I have in my collection; this would obviously not be appropriate on this blog so I’ve decided that I should start up a new blog solely for the purpose of talking film and TV.
The new blog would cover my extensive collection of horror and sci-fi films and TV shows but not in the stuffy old way that looks at camerawork, etc., but simply looking at the subject with a view to what’s good or interesting about them and whether they are actually worth watching and why. I won’t be rating them on a five chainsaw rating system or anything as trite as I believe that the one or two people who read my blogs are intelligent enough to want to read a review rather than be spoon-fed an easy option. I will, however, change to the needs of the readers and, if you want a rating, that’s what you’ll have.
I have said that the collection covers horror and sci-fi but there are some oddities thrown in there as well as the obligatory action movies. I also have some animated shows and films from anime to children’s shows.
I don’t know if anyone would actually be interested in my views on the films I like to watch and I certainly won’t be able to guarantee you’ll be able to buy the versions I’ve got as some of them aren’t available everywhere and some are deleted titles but there’s always eBay.
I’d be interested in hearing your views on this idea so please feel free to comment on this blog or on any of the blogs I write. It would be nice to hear from you – even if it’s only a complaint about the content!
