Oh yes, there will be SPOILERS
Recently I've been doing some changes to my blog, as you can tell. I've gone from using a reaper rating system to a reaper skull rating system. And I've summed up my reviews for an easier read.
However, since I'm a huge fan of cinema, one of my favorite things to do is analyze films. Break movies down and dissect them, see all the hidden messages or underlying moral. I love to see and understand the big picture beneath the the movies and I simply can't do that without spoilers. I need to discuss and describe all aspects of the films and without spoilers it's simply impossible. And because I don't do spoilers, my reviews and my writing have suffered due to how vague I have to be, without spoilers there's nothing to analyze.
So from now on I will be posting spoilers for all of my reviews and full descriptions. I know I'll lose a lot of fans, but hopefully I'll gain some new ones. I know there are some people reading who would love to have a discussion on a films unseen layers and subliminal messages. Now I'll be able to review films the way I truly want, with elaborate and in-depth details. However, I will be doing less reviews due to this since my new reviews will take quite a bit of effort and be somewhat longer. Out with the quantity and in with the quality is what I say.
So I ask you to please share your thoughts. Am I going the right way? Is this direction one you'd like to see?
