Up to 2013 I was doing movie reviews – my opinion on the movie just before it opens (South African reviewers may not release reviews more than one week before the movie opens). I was chatting to one of the movie industry people who suggested that I might not be getting as many hits as I could get because I wasn’t offering South African blog viewers enough content before the whole movie experience. Essentially my style of writing movie reviews is simple – a small table of basic information and then two or three sentences saying whether I thought the movie was worth watching or not. It lends itself to earlier publication with more information. Hence the change. But note: the review will simply be added to each post. To see what I actually think of this movie once I have seen it, please comment below and mark that you wish to be e-mailed when there are further comments. I will “reply” telling followers that my opinions have been added. Then you will have my precious thoughts – free of charge. 🙂
