Hi there, readers!
I’d like to apologise for the lack of reviews and posts on this blog over the last couple of months. Since graduating university in the summer, there have been lots of new pressures on my time as I have tried to adjust to life as a freelance film journalist, balancing pesky financial commitments with my desire to write for The Popcorn Muncher.
Since the summer, I have managed to create for myself a ridiculous backlog of reviews. I’ve been telling myself, like George RR Martin with Game of Thrones, that I’ll get there eventually, but it’s time to stop kidding myself on that front.
As a result, I’ve made the decision to clear the slate of all of my reviews in order to start anew with 2016. I’ll have a review up of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the next week, but other than that, I’m going to focus entirely on new releases such as The Danish Girl and Joy.
This does mean that a number of great films, such as Todd Haynes’ Carol, Guillermo Del Toro’s sumptuously shot Crimson Peak and drug war thriller Sicario will go unreviewed, but you can catch up with my views on the best and worst of those in my Review of 2015 posts.
I would like to apologise once again for the lack of content over the last few months. Rest assured, though, that 2016 is going to be a much better year!
