When I first started writing stuff of my own for external publishing (via emails), the first stuff I got to write about was movie reviews and laserdisc reviews.
Laserdisc are now long gone, but my passion for reviewing is here to stay. Over the last year I've started my own personal blog (http://reuvenim.blogspot.com), which happened to include reviews from time to time; by now I think I can say that blog has been firmly established as a favorite part of my routine.
In here, however, the aim is to create a catalog of the films I've been watching in a more of a systematic way. I don't intend to limit the reviews to films alone; books and other stuff shall be reviewed, too. It's just that I watch much more than I read.
I am no master reviewer and I don't expect to be able to come up with enlightenment on every film that I review, but I will admit that I wouldn't mind at all if in the future I will be employed as one of Widescreen Review's professional reviewers or if in a few years time a new program airs: Siskel & Ebert & Reuveni (which films would get the three thumbs up?).
For now I will settle with just enjoying the process of reviewing and the insight one gains when one has to form up a written review; it is certainly different to just thinking about a film for a few seconds.
As a loyal Widescreen Review reader, I will include some information regarding picture and sound quality; that is where my roots as a reviewer lie. And for that extra bit of an edge, that thing that would make my reviews unique, I think I will start with an item called "best scene" in which I provide a short account of the most memorable scene in the film, or that scene for which you'd remember the film 10 years after.
I hope you'll enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
