The creative juices must be flowing. It’s not been that long since I introduced a new feature to the blog, ‘What is…?‘, and now I’m slinging another one in. This could well be a case of information overload but I’m just hoping it’ll give the blog a decent amount of varied content.
What Dya Mean You Haven’t Seen…? is essentially me watching films that I probably should have already seen but I’m only just getting around to watching; films that when people learn I haven’t seen, they go ‘what dya mean you haven’t seen <insert film title>?’. Clever, eh?
When I do reviews of relatively recent films, I tend to write them with a critic’s hat on and try to keep them rather formal. For example, I never write anything in the first person, “I think this, that or whatever”, etc. However, when a classic film has been out for years and has been reviewed to death, it doesn’t make an awful lot of sense to try and do that. Therefore, in this feature I will give some of my personal thoughts on the film, whether it lived up to expectations, what I liked, didn’t like, and so on. It’s hardly a ground-breaking feature but it’ll hopefully mix things up a bit and allow me to get some more classic films onto the blog.
Here’s the first ‘What Dya Mean You Haven’t Seen…?’ – Alfred Hitchcock’s Strangers on a Train. Not the most obvious of choices, but all will become apparent why I started with that one.
