Someplace New

Eddie: You know, it’s funny… you come to someplace new, an’… and everything looks just the same. 
Willie: No kiddin’, Eddie.

Hello. Welcome. As you've no doubt noticed, this is my blog about the movies. Because we all know the world needs another one of those. I've been writing about films on and off for the last 3 years using Tumblr, but I like that Blogger seems to have much more of a community of people writing about film, and it would be nice to join in with that. My Tumblr blog will remain in place, where you'll find some of my old reviews, but this here blog is my new home.

I recently finished the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die book, and having slogged my way through all of that, am now moving on to use the blog to write about my own film recommendations and articles about a particular aspect of the movies. I will shortly be posting the first of these, after countless hours of research and viewing, my 101 Christmas Movies You Must See Before You Die. I'm aiming to publish that by 1st December, or maybe slightly before if I can get everything together in time.

If you'd like to read my concluding thoughts on the 1001 Movies book, and my "Cuemark Awards" discussing my favourite films from each genre, you'll find that right here.

Thanks for stopping by,
