Question #11 – Why did you start blogging?
Answer #11 – Besides the obvious of having passion for films / movies, I would say is to inform people (online) about a movie. In an age when movie ticket prices are high with various ways to see it in theaters (i.e. 2D, 3D, IMAX, IMAX 3D, etc.) or home release (DVD / Blu Ray) or even online streaming, the big question is that particular movie any good or even worth seeing on any one of those media platforms. Is it worth the hype? Is it a “sleeper hit”? Does it meet the standards of the its specific genre? Is only good as a rental? Or is it worth skipping all together? I could elaborate more on this subject, but (in a nutshell) that’s why I do it.
