Hi and welcome to my first ever blog post! Don’t know who’s actually gonna read this, but I’m sure it’ll be a valuable primary source for archeologists some couple hundred years for now.
My name’s David and I’m a student currently studying at the University of California Berkeley where I plan on majoring in History and/or Poli Sci (and/or practically any major, I have no idea what I want to do). I’ve loved movies my entire life, like so many other people I’m sure, and besides just reviewing I’ve been actively involved in both high school and college writing and creating movies. The ability to tell a story for any number of purposes allows artists to connect with people in profound ways, and I’m constantly in awe of the multitude of ways movies are able to succeed (or not succeed at this). Thus, by writing reviews I am able to feel that much closer to the works of film I watch and if my writing is good enough I am able to connect and share my viewpoints with my readers in much the same way a filmmaker can. And just maybe, I hope I’m an interesting and competent enough writer to succeed in this goal and so at least one or two people will read these reviews.
If not, a shout into the void never hurt anybody!
I’ll try to post at least 3 times a month. Mostly movie reviews, although I might go on a tangent here or there depending on what I’m feeling up to. Any feedback, arguments, new ideas, or just plain conversations is greatly appreciated!
