The thrill of going to the movies never leaves some people. The overflowing tub of popcorn, big names done up in lights, choosing a seat smack dab in the middle of the theater, guessing the trivia games during the previews; all of these are part of the allure to going to the movies. Then, the lights dim and the show begins. And for those few hours, you let yourself be entertained by the show that is going on on the big screen.
To some, such as Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel, going to the movies was their career. While all of us can’t be so lucky to get paid to tell our thoughts on the movies we’ve seen, we can still enjoy the experience just as much. That’s why I’ve started Wiita At the Movies. As an homage to these two late movie critics, I’ll be reviewing movies, along with other forms of media. Books, TV shows — you name it, and I will review it. And as I enjoy reviewing and critiquing films (among other things), I felt it was only suitable to start a blog to portray those feelings people get when they allow themselves to be entertained.
While I can’t guarantee there will be a post every week, I can guarantee you will be entertained by my reviews. Since reviews are strictly based on opinions, I welcome yours to be heard. Don’t agree with what I have to say? Want to put your two cents in? Leave a comment or send me a message so your thoughts can be published as well.
Enjoy what you see and I hope to see you at the movies!
