Why so many reviews? and how so quick?

A serious question? A question I want to answer? Yay!

Okay, first off, I write the reviews for myself, because my memory is absolutely terrible. I want to be able to go back, weeks or months later, and know what I thought about a film that I watched. The reviews help this in two ways.

A) Typing something out actually helps ingrain it into my memory. It's like taking notes in class, except I'm interested in the subject this time around.
B) If actually typing the review out doesn't make it memorable enough, then I can always just go back and read the review so that I can remember what I thought on the film.

At least, this is the reason I initially started writing them. After people told me that they were actually decent reads, I started altering my writing style a smidgen. They didn't become just what's good and what's bad, but turned into more informational, as well as still giving that type of information, IMO of course. My experience while watching a movie also played more into it, as did the emotions it evoked in me.

As for how I do it so quickly...well, I don't do anything else with my life, really. Homework is minimal, as I usually finish it at school, either during my class or on my spare. Other hobbies would be video games, which I'm becoming less interested in, and sports, which, well, I don't play any winter sports, and I would rather watch a movie than watch a sport on TV. (Unless that sport is baseball).

So watching movies and reviewing them is pretty much all I spend my free time doing--when I'm not online at least. I figure, if nothing else, they help improve my writing, and give me a larger understand of film as a whole. (I'm hoping to get into film as a career, somewhere, possibly as a critic, possibly actually working on them). I've currently applied for both a "film studies" and a "film production" course, and am awaiting results from that. Writing these at such a constant rate allowed me to realize that I do really like movies, far more than I thought I did, and helped me pick a potential career path. Before these, I had no clue as to what I wanted to do; at least now I have some idea.

Oh yeah, and they don't usually take that long to write. If I spend over an hour on one, that's too long. Writing them usually sits at about 40 minutes, with the longest taking ~2 hours, and the shortest being 23 minutes. The longest one only took that long because the internet kept distracting me though.

I hope that has sufficed. Smile

It's part of my personality.

It's also something that is slowly leaving me. I'm sure it doesn't seem that way, but I am slowly coming away from the "incredibly serious" demeanour I've had for so long. Whether or not that's good is still up for some debate.

You aren't wrong. Although I don't do that much here, except post my reviews and go in a few topics.

And this thread of course. I post in it.

The current one. And don't worry, Hub may talk a great deal, but when it's time to deliver he goes limp and hides.

She changed the name herself.

IIRC, it was "Valerie" before.

"First Ever WWE Raw Deal World Champion Mike Canu"

Legally changed his name to that after winning a TCG tournament. Met him once since I was playing that TCG. He is a complete and utter douchebag, as one would expect. And I find great hilarity in the fact that his legal name reflects him winning a world league TCG tournament for a TCG that is no longer in circulation.

I'm a little pissed though that he got meet The Rock.

I did not.

I have no need for a larger avatar in terms of dimensions, and I do not know how to change the filesize limit.

And I was asleep for the last 7+ hours.
