Maybe 'Back with a Polite Smile..' would be a more accurate title.
I started this blog a year ago. Five months later I stopped. It was my intention to just unload my thoughts about films that I'd seen, nothing more, nothing less. The blog it's self wasn't that important to me, I was writing about the films that I saw to make me think more deeply about them and so hopefully get more out of the viewing experience.
In fact the viewing experience was not enhanced, quite the opposite. I could walk out of the cinema thinking about how exciting a film was and by the time I was turning the key in the ignition I'd have picked it apart and be focusing solely on holes in the plot or a wooden supporting cast. Case point: http://6outof10.blogspot.com/2011/04/limitless-limited.html I loved Limitless as I was leaving the theater but within minutes I'd considered it's inadequacies so much that when people asked me what I thought I slated it, heavily. I stand by my review on this website, but I apologise to those few people who decided not to see it because of my few minute rant outside HMV back in May.
The point that I am trying to make is that reviewing films made me like them less, so I stopped. But I'm going to try again, I'll approach it differently and I'll go with my gut feeling. I won't necessarily review any film that I see either, if I have something to say then I'll say it, if not, I won't (no filler, woop!).
