But I will endeavor to direct this blog toward whats great about movies, rather than whats wrong with them. One reason, former procrastinators, that I put off writing a thank you is that my heart is so full. This is especially true when someone has long been deeply significant in my life or was used briefly in a significant way. . I dont know what to say or how to say. . Theres so much I could say that it seems too much for a letter. . Or I figure what was important to me would be viewed as insignificant by someone else. . I think, i really should express my gratitude for his or her influence, but and twist so i put it off. . does this sound like you?
And I just got burned out on hate in general. I used to claim that even though almost all of my reviews are scathing, Id much rather write a positive report one, because that means that I got to see an excellent movie. Perhaps that was true, but I certainly didnt act like it was true. But I did enjoy blogging, and since i quit ive missed having that creative outlet for critical analysis. I can write essays on Facebook that will be seen by some of my friends, but thats not the same. so im starting this new blog, with a more positive focus. Which is not to say that everything I write will be roses and sunshine. I cant highlight the positive without contrasting that against where things fall short.
Many years ago, i had a somewhat popular livejournal where i frequently blogged about movies from a cranky and snarky perspective. Sometimes I would give a detailed analysis of exactly where a movie went wrong and how it could have been done better. But more often, i would give an off-the-cuff mockery and dismissal of a film. From the writer of some comically terrible movie and the director of some other comically terrible movie, comes a yet another blatant rip off of some movie that keeps getting ripped off. Or The Emperor has no clothes and some critically acclaimed but pretentious director cant direct his way out of a paper bag. Things like that. While these posts were popular with my readers, i eventually realized I needed to quit doing this. I felt that relentlessly focusing on the negative was hurting me, both in terms of my writing and as a person. I had to protect my anonymity for fear of alienating someone that might be hiring me in the future.

Note that complaints like the layout is stupid, its hard to find old posts, and you should choose a different layout are less helpful than suggestions like switch to the xxxx layout or you should add an navigation bar, which is an option that you. Even if you dont know enough about WordPress to tell me *how* to make an improvement, suggesting specific improvements to make would be more helpful than vague complaints. Are there any other suggestions or opportunities for improvement that you would like to bring up? Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond to this. Feedback myself, site business March 28, 2014 cinemabadger leave a comment Im a struggling screenwriter with an mfa from usc. In the years since ive graduated, ive had some gigs writing dialogue and trivia for video games, and have had a few near-misses in terms of selling my scripts. But I personal certainly cant wimpy be said to have made.
I have to work a day job and do my writing on the side. But I still regularly write, and I believe that through practice my writing is continually improving. I have a love for the craft of storytelling and how it can be done most effectively. This love leaves me feeling personally hurt and offended when a story fails to live up to its potential. my attitude toward movies can be summed up by Anton Ego in the film Ratatouille. When he is told youre thin for someone who likes food, he responds with, i dont like food, i love. If I dont love it, i dont swallow.
What do you think about the length of posts in the movies we still Care About series? 19 words and 10 embedded videos. 1986 n-z was 825 words and 6 videos. Which length do you prefer? In general, do you wish posts were longer, shorter, or about the same? (Thats actually two separate questions, now that I think about.
do you want me to write more or less about each year, and do you want each year broken up into more or less individual posts?). How do you visit the blog? Checking the site periodically, an rss feed, through my facebook automatic links, or some other means? Do you have a preference for what time posts should appear? I usually write the mwsca posts ahead of time and schedule them for the next morning, so i can easily start scheduling them for a specific time if my readers prefer. Do you have any suggestions for improving the layout and formatting? Im not very happy with these, but Im not sure how to improve them.

Past Me : What the hell? Present Me : Because new Star Wars is terrible. But that beaming movies into your home thing sounds bad.
