My Twitter Reviews: Part 3 (from 9-1-13 to 4-10-14)

I have been tweeting short 140 character Movie Reviews since I got on Twitter. I have alternated between taking great pride in boiling down a complex opinion about something to a short, but thoughtful tweet and feeling lamely self-important about it.

This third set of reviews (the first set can be found here and the second set can be found here) span the period from September 1, 2013 to April 10, 2014. There are 52 of them and they are all in chronological order (rather, the order in which I tweeted them).

And now, may I present to you… A Bunch Of Twitter Movie Reviews – Part 3: Continue reading

A Second Series of Vaguely Movie Related Tweets (5-13-12 to 8-28-13)

I generally spend an inordinate amount of time inside of my head crafting reviews and opinion pieces that I then forget before writing them down. With the advent of Twitter and FB, I started sharing out random thoughts and ideas with the intention of writing something more indepth at a later date. That has rarely happened.

This second series of vaguely movie related tweets (the first being here) span the period from March 13, 2012 to today – August 28, 2013. They are listed in the order in which they were originally tweeted. I may be missing some, because picking through a spreadsheet of tweets is a pain in the ass.

And now, may I present to you… A Second Series of Vaguely Movie Related Tweets:

My Twitter Reviews: Part 2 (from 4-14-12 to 8-28-13)

I have been tweeting short 140 character Movie Reviews since I got on Twitter. I have alternated between taking great pride in boiling down a complex opinion about something to a short, but thoughtful tweet and feeling lamely self-important about it.

This second set of reviews (the first set can be found here) span the period from April 14, 2012 to September 28, 2013. There are 94 of them and they are all in chronological order (rather, the order in which I tweeted them).

Salt Lake City Weekly Interview With Me About Channel 801

In the interest of self promotion here is a link to an interview with me about the monthly local short film showcase that I co-produce here in Salt Lake City at Brewvies, an awesome brew pub/theater, called Channel 801. To be fair, I am super gabby and talk about a whole lot more than just Channel 801.

“It’s been a while since we’ve chatted about a monthly film festival, but to be fair, many of them have been here — or there — as far as planning and official events. That’s why it was a treat to find a brand-new festival in the format at Brewvies under the title Channel 801. Following in the footsteps of its California-based original, the film series has fans in the audience vote on the films submitted to stick around to the next week with a brand-new episode, or be shot down and forced to submit something entirely new.

Today, I chat with one of the founders, Ben Fuller, about his career in film, starting up Channel 801 and the first few shows, thoughts on the film community and a few other topics. (All pictures courtesy of Fuller and Channel 801.)”

My Personal Invite to The Gangrene Film Festival: Apollo 13 on Sept 14 2012

Hello my dear friends with connections to Utah.

It is time once again for me to do a quick personal plug for our annual Comedy Short Film Festival (www.gangreneproductions.com & www.facebook.com/gangrenefilmfestival). It is less than a week away (at the Ed Kenley Amphitheater in Layton, Utah on Friday, September 14th) and I would like to encourage you to attend for a multitude of reasons (several of which I have bullet-pointed the last couple of years on Blogmaster2000.com and on Facebook and will now copy and paste and update where necessary):

Cabin In The Woods – Movie Review

(Originally posted on Republibot.com on 4-19-12 – and then immediately posted here, too, for some reason…) 

I have an approach to reviewing films that I rarely share called Perfect Film/Perfect Movie. Basically it posits that a Perfect Film is one that I can’t fault any of the choices made in the execution of the film – story, cast, plot, direction, etc. A Perfect Movie is one that I can tune into at any time and something cool or interesting is going on, regardless of the craft involved. Obviously Perfect Films are a much smaller group than Perfect Movies, but still overall, they are elite clubs with few members.

#ComposerCondoms – July 2011 (Failed Meme Creation Attempt)

Every once in a while I try to tackle the big wide social world all on my own and create a meme. I have failed to have any kind of impact whatsoever. Every single time. Here is my personal favorite attempt that gained zero notice on Twitter, and only made a little blip on Facebook when I reposted it to a Fan Page I administrate there for a local weekly comedy show that I produce.

If you are inspired by this one, then I invite you to pile on in the comments. I mean, only if you want. I mean, I don’t care. I am good if you don’t want to. It’s no biggie… Honest…

I have arranged these back into the order in which they were originally tweeted:

#FarmvilleInHell – July 2010 (Failed Meme Creation Attempt)

Every once in a while I try to tackle the big wide social world all on my own and create a meme. I have failed to have any kind of impact whatsoever. Every single time. This is one of my early attempts, though not the earliest – the Twitter API only lets you recover the most recent 3200 tweets, so everything before those are effectively lost for now.

These tweets are in the order they were originally tweeted on July 11, 2010:
