This is a new series I’m starting on this blog called Re(tro)views (Pronounced Retro Views but kinda looks like reviews haha). What I do, or at least aim to do is rather than give films a typical review of what I liked and didn’t like and judge whether it was a good movie, I look more at what I perceived or learnt about the film, characters, message, and philosophy and why what they do is important and why decisions in these mediums matter for the audience or maybe society. Does the movie change culture in any type of way? does it represent a change in people’s perception on things? does a film cause an influx in comic sales or a severe drop?
There are many things film can do and because I would like to place it underneath the arts, it’s influencing does matter.
I’ve learnt to understand that movies can mean more to an audience and I want to explore those themes, not every super hero film is warranted to a Re(tro)view (Well not until I figure out whether it played a major role in Cinema or culture) but I will have a few, I do hope you enjoy this series as much as I do writing about them and I will be releasing these reviews Once a Month, That is the aim for now anyway. If you have any suggestions for films that I can review and even what those films meant for you, please do suggest, I’d like to know your thoughts and will probably even cause me to rewatch them again in a new light.
I’ll start this series at some point in September, hopefully mid.
Thank you for reading
