Will you look at that! It's a Saturday and we have a blog posted! I know it was quite surprising to me too! Back in January, I had debated on starting a new blog that would have been focused on what kind of movies and shows I was watching. I even dabbled around a little bit with the concept, but quite honestly, didn't have the time or energy to really put into something brand new. So I pretty much pushed the thought to the side.
Well, recently while I was searching for something to watch on Netflix, I realized that I was spending far too much time reading reviews and far too little time actually watching stuff. This started the debate of blogging about movies and shows up all over again. Then the little thought popped in my mind that said, "Hey, you! The big guy! Why not just use the blog that you already have?" (That should be read in a Jersey accent by the way.) It seemed like a pretty good idea and so here we are today!
So what is "Saturday At The Matinee" going to be? (I am sure you are all just dying to know right?) I honestly have no clue. Yeah, that is a sure fire way to keep you all coming back right? My initial thought, which I am sure can and probably will change over time, is that I will simply tell you all what I thought about whatever movie or show that I have watched recently. I really don't plan to focus on any one specific genre or style, so expect it to be random! One thing you can be sure of is that the majority of the movies that I cover will come from streaming services that we all know and love.
I think the big thing to remember is that I am no movie critic and have no intention of becoming one. Rather, I am a regular guy who will tell you if I enjoyed something or not, and then perhaps expand on my reasoning of why. Sometimes you may agree with me and sometimes you may not. That is great! Make sure and let me know why in the comments sections! If I cover a movie and it reminds you of another movie, then make sure and share about it in the comments section. That way we can all go check that movie out too.
The last thing I suppose I should share is how I plan to rate movies? I want to keep it really straight forward so there are two things that I will use to decide if I like a movie or not:
Yeah, that is a pretty rough rating system right? Who knows, maybe I will throw out a few lightning bolts or something like that as a scale? Well, with all of that said, I believe I am going to end it here. Hope to see you all back next Saturday for the first review!
