I’m Rod, and I watch movies. Seriously, that’s all I do, and I will watch anything, good or bad movies. I’m heavily into sci-fi, fantasy, martial arts (70’s Kung-Fu!) and Anime, but really I’ll watch everything. I have an extensive DVD and Bluray collection, most of my house is stacked full of them, I’m a bit of a sucker for collectors editions etc also. I used to buy a lot of Korean special box sets, but they started to get very expensive, so I had to quit getting them.
Anyway, I thought I’d start to write about the movies I love and ones I don’t love so much, it’s better than keeping them to myself, yeah!?
About the website.
There is a mass of movies out there, whatever your choice of genre there are countless movies to engross you for 90 mins or more, if fact some even push the 4-hour mark (I’ll get to that later!). The problem is what good movies are there to watch amongst all the dross? There is a lot, and you should really try to watch some bad movies, just make sure it isn’t the real stinkers, although occasionally they are surprisingly fun!
Good Movies and Bad Movies
There are good movies and there are bad movies, and you’ll know which are which when you’ve watched them as all movies are very subjective and each person takes away a different experience from the movie. But, you have to add the 2 types of bad movie as well, that is, Bad movies that are good and Bad movies that are so bad you’ll want to rip out your own eyes and never watch anything ever again (not recommended!). One of the major differences that separate these types of movies is the “Fun” factor, and I’ll try to look into that later.
How do I know what good movies you should watch?
I probably don’t, no, actually, I don’t, so I have this disclaimer…. You may not like the movies I rate and recommend, but that’s your prerogative, and being on the internet it’s your duty to comment on my failed reasoning. But, the fact I’m recommending it, doesn’t automatically class it a good movie, it could be a “so bad it’s good” but again, my personal taste and your personal taste may clash, so, take everything I say with a pinch of salt.
Reviewing, rating and recomending
Initially I’m going to be looking at what good movies there are to watch, I’ll link some ratings from some well know review sites that give a broader view than just me, this may clash with my thoughts, I don’t know yet, but it’s your duty to weigh these distinct factors up and choose for yourself. My recomendations though, are just that, a recomendation, it’s not your duty or anything, I’d love it if you felt my voice had that sort of weight behind it, but let’s be honest…..It doesn’t…does it!
So, just have a look at what I think are movies worth watching, whether good or bad, I’m just a normal person that isn’t dissecting a movie to the nth degree, but I’ll tell you if it’s worth watching.
