In a move that no doubt signifies the first step towards my total creative bankruptcy, if George Lucas’ handling of Star Wars is any sort of example I’ve decided that I’ll be going through the backlog of reviews in my oft-neglected film blog and posting them here as well. Some of you might be surprised to learn that I had written a fairly decent amount of film scribblings before I moved on to fame and fortune here, and if you are surprised then this is probably the first time you’ve ever read one of my articles, because I think I’ve mentioned that thing in every single article that I’ve written on this site. In fact it’s been over a year now, ever since the day that my good friend Alec said I should start a blog and I wrestled with self-doubt and indecision for weeks before finally biting the bullet and starting one up. Much like how I confront any and all decisions in my life, which is probably why I never got around to that one year anniversary thing.
