I’m introducing a new feature to the blog – the Quickie. This isn’t some big flashy thing, but simply scaled down reviews. I was finding that my reviews were taking a little while to write and some were coming in at around the 800-1000 word mark. The Quickie will be no longer than 300 words (hopefully) and will detail my overriding feelings of the film rather than going into the finer details.
This won’t happen for all films, but just for those that either I don’t feel merit a full review, I don’t have time to write a full review for, or for films I’ve left it a little to long to write a full review for and can’t actually remember everything about it. I will still, of course, continue with full reviews, but this will give a bit of a change of pace. This has been riffed a little from ClaratsiMovieBlog and his ‘Turbo Reviews’ but it was something that I was considering beforehand; I thought I’d give a little name check where it’s due anyway.
The first Quickie, Rampart, is up now to read.
