Hello, Blog Complainer here. This post should be rather brief as it’s more a announcement rather than a full update post. The big news here is I have being writing these reviews for just over five years now.
So just over five years ago today I began writing movie reviews. My first ever review was on Black Panther and apparently I wrote it on February 26th 2018. I hesitant to believe that as I think my original review of that movie is lost and I only added it onto the word document like a couple days later. Regardless, it was a pretty big deal for me as I had never released any written work online before. I recall being a bit nervous, but after awhile I grew into the swing of things thanks to nice comments I got from family members and the small online audience that grew out of that. I only started writing these reviews to improve my writing as my aspiration is to be a writer. Although the main reason was I enjoy what I do and it’s fun. Since then these reviews have developed into more of a hobby where I occasionally write reviews of what I interested in and to break up the intense writing of my novels. What has changed the most in five years is my love for film has grown into more appreciation of the craft rather than cynically hating most of it, like I did back then.
This is why I wanted to make this post to announce I’ll be adding the reviews I wrote on the site MoviesQuotesandMore onto The Blog Complainer. The site were constantly deleting reviews in order to add new ones, which annoyed the hell out of me as I had put a lot of effort into those reviews. Tired of their antics I created this site The Blog Complainer on May 6th 2018. Luckily these pre-BC reviews aren’t completely lost as they were all saved on Word documents before they were even posted. A few years prior I had shared the Twilight Reviews I wrote for that site, which is how I remembered these things weren’t completely lost. So now I’ll be releasing the rest fully restored on this site as they were originally written, which includes all the grammar mistakes I had made (I was very amateurish back then). I’m mainly doing this for myself to see how I’ve evolved over the years and also I think for everyone reading this post should know where I came from. You all have a right to know that five years I was very cynical teenager, who made a bunch of hot takes and turned them into reviews, which is all a precursor for what became The Blog Complainer.
That’s pretty much it for this post. Below this paragraph is the full list of the reviews. Starting from Black Panther and all the way the Guernsey Literature Club review I did where I finally realised they had removed all my Television reviews and Space Jam review. All of these reviews will be available to read at your pleasure and mine included if I have the courage to revisit them. That’s about it, I have being The Blog Complainer, signing out.
