2018 Review and Thank You Letter

2018 has been another excellent year for Movie Reviews 101, I bought in a new feature which is pushing me to watch an even wider range of movies, while other features have faded away. On a personal level I started writing on another website, Ready Steady Cut, my Youtube Channel is still plugging along, hoping to get more subscribers and videos up this year.

I would like to thank everybody who has read a single review, taken part in Opinion Battles, joined the ABC Film Challenge, commented and the publicists and filmmakers that haven given me a chance to watch their movies.

In 2019 things are going to continue to go strong, with a few changes.

First Opinion Battles will not be returning this year, this is because the voting has sunk to record lows and the subjects are becoming harder to select.

The ABC Film Challenge is continuing with the follow subjects

·         January – Favourites from 2018

·         February – Oscar Nominations

·         March – Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Films/characters, a month dedicated to one of my favourite actors)

·         April – Action Movies

·         May – Biopic

·         June – World Cinema

·         July – Crime

·         August – Franchise Ranking

·         September – Thriller

·         October – Horror

·         November – James Bond Franchise

·         December – Anticipating for 2020

If you want to join in with reviews or recommendation you are more than welcome to send them to moviereviews101@yahoo.co.uk

I am looking to continue to bring you all more reviews from the biggest and the smallest budget films from around the world.

Thank you all once again, it means so much to me to be able to continue the site with my hope that one day I could make a small living off this.

Movie Reviews 101 Year Review

2017 has ended and what better way to finish the year, to look back at the year and see how far we have come.

First I would like to thank everyone who has visited, liked or commented on any of my posts, we have reached a comfortable level of traffic visiting the site on a daily basis.

We had a new Champion in Opinion Battles congratulations S.G. Liput from Rhyme and Reason.

I would like to thank any of the publicists that have given me a chance to see movies I wouldn’t normal get a chance to see from all around the world.

Talking Stars has gotten bigger and better through the year and we even had our first interview on the show with director David Palamaro who directed Murder Made Easy.

Matt Tory gave me a chance to see his movie ‘We Make Movies’ and even designed a poster with one of my quotes on, which for me is a huge achievement and something I had been aiming for in recent years.

I have also returned to Youtube with reviews and will be looking to bring videos to everyone on a more regular basis.

Looking into the future I am taking on my biggest ambitious project yet, with the ABC Film Challenge, where I am using the first 27 days of each month to give a different answer on different themes for every single month of the year.

This has been a fantastic year for me, I will be looking to reach the next level in the next year and hopefully you can all join me on this journey.

2016 has been another great year for Movie Reviews 101, we achieved our goal of daily film reviews with a mix of Blockbuster, indies, classics and Independence Day Resurgence. I have loved being able to see all the different movies even if I didn’t enjoy all of them.

Opinion Battles has another great year with a brand new Champion in Table 9 Mutant from Cinema Parrot Disco. We will be returning with a new selection of questions, you are also all welcome to come and join in too.opinion battles

On the bigger front I started a podcast with Damien – Riley on Film, Kira – Film and TV 101 Becky – Film Music Central that is 30 episodes strong called Talking Stars Podcast which can be found on I-Tunes or Here

I hope this year will be even bigger and better with a brand new feature starting in February.mysteery

Open Letter 2015 Year Ending

Dear Readers,

I am ending the year with an open letter to everyone who has come across my site. I want to thank everyone who has read, liked and commented on any on my posts because this year I have managed to get over the 100,000 views. I have met some wonderful film fans that have opened up the world of a film conversation I just don’t get in my everyday life, which means a lot to me.thankkk

I would also like to thank everyone who took part in Opinion Battles and I am delighted that it is growing next year as it gives film fans from all over the world to voice their opinions on different films giving us all a chance to have an added conversation.opinion battles

Back at the end of July I wrote a thank you post as I reached my 1500 post, in that post I set a few goals, one of which was to appear on a Podcast. I managed to achieve this by appearing on The LambCast as well as on The Vern’s Film Pastures, I am also going to be returning to both on them early in 2016. I do still have the desire to try and start my own podcast with my main two ideas being a basic chat on what we have been watching or Opinion Battles the podcast where we can get into a real debate about films.

I would like to thank all the publicist that have sent me screeners that have continued to show that lower budget films really are giving us brilliant films that need to be watched by all the fans of the genre.thanks

I would like to thank Movie Rob for pushing me to try films outside my comfort zone with the weekly challenge.rob challenge

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has supported me through the years and I wish to continue making this site bigger and better.

2016 Goals

·         Turn Opinion Battles into a podcast

·         Continue to meet and chat with movie fans from all over the world.

·         Start making more video reviews

·         Continue to improve my writing style

·         Interview the stars/directors of the movies I am seeing

Thank You For Reading
