Initially, WordPress really got me thinking: what should I write at 1:30 in the night about  me “… so readers know where am I  coming from”? Good Lord… I just wanted to write my point of view about A movie! No time for that now! Later, may be 🙂

Then, I’ve read the “Who the hell are you” post from Lorelle on WordPress.  So, there is a pretty strong statement about putting some information in this page.  Why should anyone read you if they do not know something about you?

So, what are movies for me? Why do I do that?

Well, I’ve being watching movies since I was like 5 years old and believe me, seems like ages ago! Still remember the movie theater we saw that movie with my parents. It must have been “Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales“, but how can I be sure? :).  It was my 1st revelation about what a movie is!

I saw my 1st movie alone in a movie theater in 1975. It was “Little Big Man“, directed by Arthur Pen, with Dustin Hoffman. Seeing that movie, all alone, in a dark room, immersed in the story, was like a 2nd revelation to me.

Since that day, many more followed. The rate was at least three movies per week, sometimes many more.

So, what are movies for me?

  • the power of the image to pass a message
  • the things I find in there that relate to me
  • a way to escape reality for a couple of hours and come back to face it with a different strength
  • education regarding all aspects of human life
  • the spark that ignites a discussion and communication with others to exchange thoughts and ideas
  • entertainment!
  • being happy again, since I am told a fairy tale one more time!

So, still, during a film festival, I get a pass and see 2~3 movies a day.

What is my purpose? Well, we ask friends and relatives what they think about movies (and other things) they saw, in order for us to understand if it is worthwhile to see it ourselves. Many times however, opinion differs. Blogging provides the possibility to do that in a better way. So, if you come here to find an opinion for a movie, then I’ll be happy to share it with you 🙂

  1. Θα ήταν ιδιαίτερα ευπρόσδεκτη η (πάντοτε χρήσιμη) κριτική & σχολιασμός σου και σε παλαιότερες ταινίες που θεωρείς ενδιαφέρουσες.

    • Ναι, η σκέψη αυτή είναι στο μυαλό μου αρκετό καιρό τώρα. Μάλλον όχι άμεσα αλλά εν καιρώ θα γίνει 🙂 Ευχαριστώ!

  2. It is the only blog I ever read, let alone participate in. I know who you are, but even if I didn’t, I would still enjoy reading your reviews, which show insight and sensitivity. Even if I don’t always agree with you, I’am always interested in your point of view. So, keep it up!

    • Thank you 🙂 I feel doubly honored having such comments coming from you!

  3. What a wonderful service you provide. A synopsis about each story you have viewed and your take on it. I love to learn of others “take” on something. I watch a Netflix download per day from somewhere around the globe to connect with their stories, their experiences, their environment, the beauty of the particular culture and language. All sharing stories of experiences, living, learning more about oneself as one watches and listens to each story. I truly love your synopses!!!!!

    • Thank you so much La Vern. Films are a distilled and compressed view of one’s reality. They give us the chance to see other aspects, different opinions, paths, believes… That is why we like them so much!

  4. ok δεν περιμενα να εχεις δει και την πριγκιπισα Μονονοκε
    τι ταινια….. 🙂

    • Ο Miyazaki είναι εκπληκτικός: είναι από τους σκηνοθέτες animation που δίνουν απάντηση στο “γιατί κινούμενα σχέδια”. Υπάρχουν εικόνες που δεν μπορείς να μεταφέρεις με άλλο τρόπο.

  5. Very nice About page!
