I like film. I like watching good films and thinking about what makes a good and bad film. But I am not an expert or even a professional. I have never studied film or filmmaking. I haven’t made any award winning pieces which gives me credibility. Instead I’m just a fan writing about some of the films I like and some of the films I dont.
I’ll aim to keep the reviews short and readable. You wont have to have a degree in film to understand them or a dictionary to understand the terms used.
I’ll review the films in two ways. Firstly by some categories I believe make up a good film.
1. Plot/Story Development – Is there a good plot and does the story go somewhere and develop?
2. Cinematography – How does the film look? Is it particularly impressive and interesting?
3. Performances – How do the actors perform? Are they quality or B grade (Steven Seagull, any wrestler now acting)
