Welcome to my website!
Have you ever wondered why some critics review films? They don't even seem to like movies that much from what they write. I LOVE movies, and think about them long after the last credits roll across the screen. My reviews are meant to inform, entertain and never have a spoiler.
Enjoy my reviews and please comment and come back frequently! Thanks for visiting!

A to Z Reflections Post

Today is the day bloggers post their reflections on the Blogging Challenge experience. I’m glad I participated this year, and met so many talented people through their blogs.

I particularly enjoyed others’ movie blogs, blogs about literature, poetry, or just people writing about their travels. I liked meeting people from other countries, and learning about their culture. One person I happened upon was writing short essays on current events, political topics, and I enjoyed reading the posts and the comments that followed.

What didn’t work for me was when I would attempt to post a comment on someone’s blog, work to word it just right, and then it wouldn’t post. The Blogging A to Z staff emphasized at the start that people were to remove any impediments to commenting, and not everyone took this advice. It made it frustrating for me, and in some cases, I just didn’t return to their blog. If I make a comment, I want it to show up right away. You can always delete a comment if it’s inappropriate or spam.

What worked great was the discipline of churning out 26 blog posts in such a short time. Writing the movie reviews for my blog was a great experience, and I learned so much from researching and watching the films. I enjoyed the comments I received, and always made a reply to my readers.

I did not miss having the “Linky List.” It worked great for me to look at blogs from the main page after I had left a link to my blog in the comments section, and to also look at the Facebook page and find the blogs from there.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to put this event together and who participated. There are some greatly talented people out there sharing their knowledge. Some blogs I am continuing to follow, so I hope to see you posting all year. I will continue to review films and post about once or twice a week.

Happy creating!


  1. Hi Sue - that's great ... I don't know enough about movies - but must come back and read through all of yours - interesting theme. It's good you'll keep to your theme - then I'll catch you as you go.

    I agree about the comment moderation being on - it's a pain! Sometimes I gave up too .. but I know there can be challenges at times - so I took stock and went back ... or then gave up.

    Cheers and see you soon ... Hilary

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog, Hilary. And congratulations on completing the challenge!

  2. I get what you're saying about the comments, but at the same time, I understand why people don't turn off moderation because it looks so bad when a new person comes to your blog and your comments section is filled with spam. Congrats on finishing the challenge :)

    1. Thanks for visiting my blog! It was interesting that I never received any spam the whole month of April. One person left a comment with only a link to their blog in it, but that was the only person who didn't leave a legitimate comment. Looking forward to more writing this year!

  3. If it wasn't for the A to Z Challenge, I would have never known about your blog. It's great to know that there are other movie buffs who like to post about the films they've seen. I eagerly look forward to seeing what you will be reviewing next.

    1. Thanks for being a loyal reader, Adam. I am looking forward to reading more of your reviews this coming year! Congratulations on completing the challenge!
