On this first post of the Movie Generation I want to explain what’s this all about.
Movie Generation is a place where I’m going to share my view, my opinion and my insights on movies I watch. I’m kind of a “movie-eater”, so this is a good way to share not only movies for us all to watch, but also our appreciation on them! And I say “our” because I’m counting with your collaboration: your comments and feedback! What did you think of the movie? What do you think was left unsaid? What’s your opinion on my review (or other reviews you might have seen?)
But I’m going to try to offer you more than that: facts, articles, curiosities… Everything I know and find, I’ll show it to you too. And once again, I’m counting on you to do the same for me! If you think there’s something you could share with me and this blog, please feel free to type it down!
I chose the name Movie Generation because I think I’m a part of that “generation”, the people who watch movies daily (or almost) and like to think about what they just saw, and are continuously searching for more. It’s not necessarily a generation, its more of a kind of people with an interest, but generation sounded kinda cool. :p Movies make us see things we usually don’t see, make as understand and think about the world around us and ourselves.
My favorite genres are Horror/Terror, Mind-Twist (or Mind Fuck, however you prefer), low-budget Horror/Terror, Dark Humor, Thriller and Sci-Fi. Oh! And Asian Horror! And Documentary! But I also like some dramas and comedies, depending on the film… Well, I guess I can see everything, not counting with BW movies, for some reason I can’t watch them until the end… I know it’s kinda bad since the beginnings of cinema are all BW… Maybe I just didn’t find BW films I can relate to yet… However, there’s one I saw entirely: Young Frankenstein! Ha! I might as well start with that one! I also used to watch Charlie Chaplin when I was a kid!
I also decided to start this blog to deepen my interest in movies. I have a degree in that area and took another course on “Directing”, so… since I don’t have the means to make my own movies yet, I could start by sharing my thoughts about the millions of movies and docs out there with whoever’s interested! Besides, I’m sharing stuff I learned along the way with you too, as I said before! Feel free to use that information, share some with me too, or even correct me if I’m wrong!
I’m gonna try to update the blog daily, so you don’t get bored and leave!
