    Hi everyone!

    I'm a newbie on this part of TSR...which is strange actually because as you're about to see I really enjoy watching films.

    In fact, I blog about them (and books :heart:), and I'm interested in hearing what other aficionados think of what I think.

    The main feature of this blog is that I try to connect literature and film together. Therefore, I'm interested in the literariness of films and the cinematic quality of books

    Here are some links to my blogposts on films (I'm not into any particular genre, I like variety...):

    * Frank Capra's 'Meet John Doe' (1941)

    * Denzel Washington's 'The Great Debaters' (2007)

    * Roger Corman's 'The Terror' (1963)

    * Lee Tamahori's 'The Devil's Double' (2011)

    * Shane Meadows' 'This is England' (2006)

    Feel free to browse through the site. I'd really, really appreciate any feedback (good or bad, so long as it's honest).

    Thank youuu!

    Wow! I love your writing. Your very critical and not afraid to state your opinions. I love that so much. You should keep this up. I have a feeling that if you do, you will go far. If I may ask, what are you currently studying and where at?

    I only read the Meet John Doe post but clap clap for you. You're writing style is excellent, it's intelligent without being pretentious and I love the way you brought in such issues as the Leveson inquiry.

    Excellent stuff!

    Thanks for your very kind comment! ^_^ Yes, I do intend to keep writing but sometimes I get disheartened because feel like I don't have a readership (even if I know that takes a long time and a lot of hard work to gain heh...). Informative feedback like this really helps motivation though, so thanks again! )

    I study English at the University of Malta btw

    Thanks for the lovely comment, I really appreciate it!!
    Glad you liked the links I try to make with current stuff too!...I think it's part of the reading/film watching process. We're told that Shakespeare (and artists in general) create works that are constantly topical, but it's often up to us to reflect on how they can be so.
