Yesterday when I was looking through my blog history to collect my favorite movies and re-write their reviews (ReReview series starts in October), I obviously read my first post and got all nostalgic. I wasn’t as skilled in words nor grammar -heck as I consider myself to be now but I was still impressed of how nice the first post was. So I thought I’d share this with you guys, since I’m not very keen on letting you go through my 2010 archive because it is a mess. But the first post, I thought it was a relatively cute mess.
The text hasn’t been altered so I’m sorry that it sounds a bit rough around the edges. I was only 21 and a bit less familiar with my English – yet, I think the description of what kind of movies there are sounded adorable. Fangirling myself, how silly of me!
Hi, my name is Mettel Ray and I’m an addict.
This all started in a very early age and frankly, I do not even remember how old I was. At first it was just cartoons and Disney movies, but then came comedies and dramas and before I knew I was watching high speed car chases with my mouth open hoping that the main character would make it! I don’t watch horror movies and I still have a hard time with them (I have seen some), but not all addicts watch everything that there is to watch – I would become a moviewatchingzombie who stares at the screen for days not knowing nothing about the outside world.
Even though my range of taste of movies and TV-shows vary from comedy to thriller, I have established a quite critical thinking towards them. Maybe it’s because of my age or the fact that I’m studying to be a critic (and now see things from a new perspective) – but one thing is 100% true – I love the movie world for its versatility!
There are bad movies, there are good ones, there are the ones who make you cry and the ones that put a smile to your face, there are horrible movies that shouldn’t be movies and horror movies that make you want to pee your pants, there are ridiculous movies and movies that are made to be ridiculous for a reason, there are stupid love movies and there are just stupid movies, there are movies that are inspired by real life and there are movies that inspire life, there are Oscar winning movies and Golden Globe winning movies, then there are movies that don’t win anything – and you probably get my point by now.
So, there are a LOT of movies and I tend to watch as many movies (& TV-shows) that there are (some I watch more than once or even 5 times), and I’m gonna write about them. My opinion is not going to be same as yours or your mothers or Roger Eberts’ or the Academy Awards, but I’m gonna to my best to give an honest criticism.
Feel free to comment my posts and suggest me your favorite movies. My list of movies (& TV-shows) that I have already seen is coming up soon (there are a lot and I probably don’t even remember most of them) and I try to write as many reviews as I can about the ones I have already seen.
My name is Mettel Ray and I’m proud to say, I’m a movie addict !0
You first entry has better writing than mine in the present day :P. I’m a fan of these “why I love movies” confessions. Its always interesting to read what’s behind the mind of people with similar passions. Whenever people tell me “wow, you really love movies, don’t you?”, I tell them “Love is an understatement. Its passion”. And yes, I too am a movie addict.
That is a difficult question to answer always.. cause you sometimes can’t explain something that is a part of you or something. But yes, addict works well I think.
