A passion for cinemaPosted Thursday, January 24, 2013, at 10:52 AM
I've been a movie goer all my life. I've always enjoyed escaping life for a few hours to go see the latest blockbuster to hit theaters and see the latest action hit, drama, or comedy.
It wasn't until I took a class in college that I began to view films as a media comparable to literature and the like with thematic messages, symbolism, and basic cinematography.
The class, called Film and Literature, often consisted of reading a book and comparing the film of the same name. There were other times where we would compare books of a certain genre to films.
Ever since then, I've often found myself critically analyzing films I will watch and researching and debating various thematic points I'll see.
This blog will consist of movie reviews as well as some critical points I stumble across in said films.
I hope everyone that reads will have feedback, as well as discussion on new films that hit the theaters.
