For years now I've taken notes while watching
movies--jotting down plot elements, memorable quotations, and my thoughts
about various aspects of the film. Finally I decided to translate these notations
into a standard format and call them movie reviews. Although a few
not "reviews" in the traditional sense because they are mostly
geared toward people who have already seen the film--facilitating the
"let's compare notes" or "what did you think"
process--, most are written for those who haven't seen these films
yet. I've tried not to give away crucial plot elements and to make suggestions
about what kind of film fans might like a particular movie or at least
find it interesting. If a review is preceded by a "Spoiler
Warning" however, don't read it until you've seen the film.
There are only a few films reviewed right now because
this section is very much a work in progress. I'll get there
eventually though. All reviews in this section are written by
Elizabeth, and for better or for worse, they do represent the opinions
of Reel Classics.
