Letterboxd

I stumbled upon Letterboxd a couple of years ago at a time when I was becoming disillusioned with online foruming. For years, I’d been a member of several film forums but was no longer really posting as certain attitudes had put me off it.

So to find a place where I could have fun again was a godsend.

I started off rather timidly only logging a few films seen at the cinema. From then, I’ve expanded to movies seen in any format and any ones that I have a distinct memory of seeing.

My current tally is of 570 movies (including shorts) seen this year and 4,513 movies in total.

Prologue

I love films.

I really do.

My job can be soul destroying so escapism forms a big part of my life and watching movies constitutes a big chunk of that.

I’ve watched films since before I can remember; in fact, one of my earliest memories involves seeing Star Wars at the cinema.

I’ll watch pretty much anything once and there are very few films that I’ll refuse to watch.

This will hopefully be a pretension free area. In no way, shape or form am I trying to be the next Roger Ebert.

I won’t be using this as a movie diary, I have a Letterboxd account for that.

Don’t expect too many reviews…

And now on with the show.
