Site Name: Full Moon Reviews
Categories: Reviews, Humor, General (Mainly Horror)
What is the main focus of your site?
To give people interested in a certain movie, or fans of a certain movie, entertaining reviews that make people laugh and maybe want (or not want) to see the film they read the review on. I have a “Things I’ve Learned…” section that is pretty much my sarcastic list of things that happened in the film mixed with pop culture. Plus I have a WTF? Worst Films Extravaganza series where the worst films get the bashing that they deserve in the most humorous of ways. A majority of the reviews on the site are for horror films because it’s my favorite genre and I’m pretty knowledgeable on the subject. But I do review other genres if I feel I have something worthwhile to say about it.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I’ve been a movie fan since I can remember. I’ve also been a writer for probably just as long. Being a film major and studying to become a future filmmaker, reviewing films has allowed me to see what works and what doesn’t. Plus, I just enjoy opening up about films I enjoy and about films I don’t. I’m an honest guy who isn’t gonna B.S. about my feelings for any movie. I think people appreciate that.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I wouldn’t be reviewing films if there were no interaction. I believe in the first amendment. I thrive on hearing what people have to say about a film. If they agree or disagree with my review, it’s all good. I love debating about movies. I even let people pick certain films they want me to review and I usually do for their amusement and mine. I think an interactive community is the way to go.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I started in October of 2006 on MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/dawolf_81) and pretty much created this website as a back-up for all my reviews in April of 2008. Now it’s pretty much my main website and I usually post MySpace blogs leading readers to my Blogspot and not the other way around. Most likely, there’s an update at least once a week. I usually do like 2 or 3 a week, sometimes more. Depends on my schedule.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Halloween (1978), A Clockwork Orange, The Goonies
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
How do you stay sane after watching so many horrible films for your WTF? Series?
Lots of sunflower seeds, Pixie Stix, and vodka. Not necessarily in that order.
