Hello there 🙂
On this blog you will find frank and personal reviews about Films, new and old. I may ramble, I might even go off on the odd tangent – but I have to come to think that even my opinion is valid in the vast world of movie reviews so I hope you will stick around join the ever growing movie community chatter!
The name’s Claire, I am simply a girl in her twenties, blogging about my love of life and film. I grew up in the Midlands, UK and moved to Manchester to study at Uni. I am still here after graduating in summer 2011 (yet it feels like another life already), and living with my lovely bearded boyfriend.
I was contemplating one day if I had a real hobby, I’m not into sport, I don’t read a lot, I don’t collect anything or have an obsession with any bands (my Spice Girls days are over, as are theirs). Can love of film really be a hobby?? After a little research I decided yes, it takes up a lot of my time, I don’t get paid for it, and I LOVE it – therefore defining a hobby in my book!
So here I am, blogging for the first time about movies I am watching or may have watched, eagerly anticipating or majorly hating. Reading up on film reviews is all well and good, but for a rookie like myself, experts seem to have many opinions that just don’t reflect how I am going to enjoy a film. Usually I haven’t read the comic or seen the original from the 1800’s, nor am I familiar with the Directors previous independent films blah blah etc. Is my opinion void? I don’t think so, the average Joe audience deserves a voice and here is a little one to start us off, no doubt I will find more like minded film lovers on the way!
Happy reading and Happy blogging! XxxX
