Site Name: filmicability with Dean Treadway
Categories: Reviews and Editorials
What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
My main focus in doing the website is to direct people to all the good movies that are out there. So, since its inception in February, I’ve been steadily adding to the lineup. There are almost NO BAD REVIEWS on my site; I’d rather pretend like the bad movies don’t exist.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
My goals are to get a professional position as a film authority, either with another web or print organization, or on television (I have TV reviewing experience). My bigger goal, though, is to put down in words what I think makes a good movie good, and then to lead people to these movies.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I wish people would leave more comments so that it was slightly more interactive, but essentially I am the teacher and readers are the students, yes.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I have been writing about and reporting on movies for twenty years; I’ve been blogging since mid-February 2008. I update at least twice a week, sometimes with numerous articles in a day. (Though I’ve been recently working on a series of bigger articles for another blog that have slowed up my entries on my own site.)
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
My 275 favorite movies are listed at the right of the screen on my blog. But I can tell you the top three: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Fanny and Alexander, Touch of Evil.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
Heard about the LAMB through FINAL GIRL, my favorite slasher movie website (God, Stacy is so funny!).
