The Movie Blogger.

Hey guys! How's it going, hope you all are enjoying yourselves (and the movies you're watching). I'm writing this post as something to kinda hold you over, I'm under a lot of tension at the moment because of my external exams and I barely have time to write up anything. But alas! summer is right around the corner and I do have some big plans for this blog.  Just know that I'm forever thankful for all your support my dear readers. So anyways, I've been a blogger for about ten months now and let me tell you, it's been great! I just want to dedicate this post to anyone who has just started as a movie blogger or someone who is aspiring to be one.

Here's some tips that I can give all you early/aspiring movie bloggers:

1. Start by watching really old movies, then work your way up: Like every subject you want to write about, you need to do some research on its historical background and witness how it revolutionized throughout the years. This will give you a better understanding of how films were made back in the day and  trust me, you will learn a lot from old movies. The oldest movie I own is Der Golem that was released in 1915!

2. Don't let anything cloud your judgement: In the end, movie reviewing is all about presenting your own opinion, so don't let anyone or anything change your opinion on any movie.

3.Build your vocabulary: This step is extremely crucial to any movie reviewer, to build your vocab, especially your descriptive language. As a non-native English speaker, it was really hard for me in the beginning, but I worked on my English and look at me now! Movie reviewing is conveying your emotions about a certain movie to your audience, so descriptive language is key.

4.Open up to different genres: When I first started, I hated Romantic comedies, historical movies, and a lot of other different genres. But then I realized that this wasn't going to make me an accomplished reviewer, so I forced myself to watch movies in the genres that I previously hated, and let me tell you, some of the movies I watched were absolutely fantastic.

5.Collect DVD's: You don't have to do this but it'll look really good because that will show you love and dedication for movies. ]

6.READ,READ,READ: Read until your mind can't take anymore. Read the biography of any actor/actress, read reviews of other critics, and any movie news you can get a hold of. This will not only make you more creative in your writing, but it'll also give you a better understanding of the movie industry nowadays.

So I hope that these tips help you , and remember, creativity has no limits.
