Recent Rewatches is designed as a collection of posts where I detail my reactions (less straight up reviews, because usually I’ve already written them) to films I’ve already seen. This has two purposes, one, to remind myself of the specifics of films I’ve already watched, and two, to track my (perhaps) differing opinions of films over time.
Recent Rewatches is a series that underwent a major change. It used to be just focused on individual films that interested me, then it went away for a while, and then I brought it back on a month by month basis. I think it works better now. Sometimes I don’t have a ton of new stuff to say about a film, but sometimes I can write paragraphs and paragraphs on it. But the point is, if I just wait until I find new stuff to talk about with a film, I probably won’t write about it all. But now it’s a monthly thing, and actually gets done.
And all of that WAS true, and is, but with a bit of change. I just added in everything I watched during the month, so I can informally review everything even if I don’t get a full review in.
