Site Name: IanTheCool’s Movie Reviews
Categories: Reviews, Lists, (Other) Oscar predictions
What is the main focus of your site?
The main focus of my site is my reviews of current movies. I also have other features such as Blu-ray reviews, an AFI Top 100 recap, and film club reviews which can involve a variety of different types of films. However, I also include a series of Top Ten lists as well as some board game reviews.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I use my blog to express my opinions on film and to encourage discussion amongst myself and like-minded film buffs.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
I definitely prefer an interactive community. I encourage comments and always try to respond and create a discussion. I also make comments on many other blogs in the WordPress community.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
My site has been active for over two years, since October of 2009. I try to update my site about 3 times a week.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
How did you hear about the LAMB?
A few blogs I frequent are LAMB members. I first heard about it through The Best Picture Project blog by alysonkrier.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
I try to write reviews which focus more on my opinion of the film and what worked and what didn’t, as opposed to simply retelling the plot of the film (which I feel many reviews do too often). If I recap the plot at all, I do so in a quick sentence or two, which is why my reviews many seem shorter than most.
