What is the main focus of your site?
There’s nothing more annoying than paying good money for a crappy movie, especially when you’re not rolling in dough. Reviews from a Refrigerator Box is one poor movie lover helping normal, everyday people pick movies they’ll be happy with… and making them laugh, too.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I blog partly for my own personal satisfaction (let’s show everyone how smart I am!), partly as a public service (this movie is so bad, let me save you from it) and partly to help my career (hello, people with money, I just want to let you know I exist. Please give me a job.)
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
I’m the only one who posts articles on my blog, but I love getting comments and I’m always open to questions and suggestions and requests and arguments.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
Reviews from a Refrigerator Box has been around since May 25th, 2010. I post four times a week: a full review (with lots of pictures!) of a just-released theatrical film on Sunday, a series of short reviews of newly released DVDs on Tuesday, trailers and trailer reviews for the movies being released that weekend on Thursday, and something random (an editorial, a list, etc.) on Friday. I also post a new poll every week in the sidebar and I add short reviews to the Review Library whenever I’ve got a few minutes.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Return of the Jedi
The Emperor’s New Groove
Catch and Release
How did you hear about the LAMB?
When I first started up I started searching for directories my site might fit into to increase my traffic. I found the LAMB by searching something like “movie review directory” on Google
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
ME: What’s the most important criteria for you when you’re judging a movie?
MYSELF: Well, Me, I’m a trained screenwriter, so the most important thing is that the movie be well written. The story has to work. Natural dialogue, believable characters, coherent plots, and a hook that adds something new and different to add to the annals of moviedom.
I: And it’s got to be fun, too, don’t forget that. You’re making it sound like all we like are stuffy festival dramas.
MYSELF: Oh, yeah. Thanks, I. We love to have fun at the movies, which is why we’ll watch anything from brand new Hollywood movies to old independent films shot in some guy’s garage.
