What’s it all about?…
What is the skinny you ask? Well, if I could count the times that my wife said to me, “Seriously Paul, stop yapping to me about movies and trying to convince me you made up that line and put it in a blog”, it would add up to more times Arnie said “I’ll be back”. So finally, as things normally go with her suggestions, a few months later I finally listened and went on the hunt for a good domain. I said to myself, “Paul what should I call my new blog about movies” and that is how paulsmovieblog.com was born. I won’t tell you where I was or what I was doing but it’s the place where we all get our best ideas in life.
Honestly, for as long as I can remember I have always loved watching different types of movies. Whether it was a Disney movie, a comedy movie, a sci-fi movie, whatever, I could forget about everything else going on in my life at the time and just lose myself in the movie. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I have an awesome life but lets face it, watching Luke Skywalker race across space fighting the bad guys or Indiana Jones crawling through a long lost temple kind of trumps the lives of us normal people. Also I am not ashamed to admit that I could do with expanding my movie watching to outside the realm of American blockbusters.
Needless to say, but I am going to anyway, there have been a few movies released before paulsmovieblog.com was registered so what’s the best way to pick the best of the past while still writing, yapping and filling your heads with useful/ useless facts about present and future movies? The end decision was to make the blog more of a site with a top 100 movies of all time section, current section,
upcoming section yada, yada, yada.
How to decide on a top 100 movie list?
As you can imagine there are more than 1 “top 100 movies to watch before you die” so yet again I asked myself, where do I go to get my fix of movie news? Sites like empire, totalfilm, comingsoon and IMDB all came to mind.
<Tidy up this paragraph>
Each has their own “Top 100 of all time” lists, well actually they have 300 and 500 lists but I have a day job and a wife to please so I will start at 100 and work my way down. Some of the lists were a bit dated and I started going around in circles but my advanced copy of Empire has a list 100% comprised of movies voted for by empire readers. <Tidy up this paragraph>
Wasn’t an easy decision but end of the day, I use comingsoon.net for trailers, imdb to judge if I should watch a movie I never heard of, so it was a tossup between empire and total film. In the end Empire took the biscuit,
can’t really say why but it just did so lets leave it there.
So that’s it really…
I will be writing new articles all the time about old, new and upcoming movies and much, much more so hit the sweet counter, grab your popcorn, put your phone on silent and site back and enjoy the ride.
