Hello Everyone. My name is James Humphreys. I am the author and creator of this humble blog. It may look amateurish now, but this is my first foray into internet literature, so I hope to get better as time goes along. In any case, this will the first post that I’ll ever write on this site, so I better make it count. (Sits alone at the computer)…………(time passes)………. Is it time for work already? Shoot. That was a waste of time.
Okay, seriously, I do have a plan for what I’m going to write here at CineRamble.com. In case it’s not obvious already from the title and picture I put up, this will be a blog about movies. I’m very opinionated when it comes to films and filmmaking, and I enjoy sharing my thoughts with anyone; friends, family, and sometimes just the person I’m sitting next to in the movie theater. Yeah I’m that guy. I always try to stay informed and keep up with all the current trends in the media, as hard as that sometimes can be, and I always try to keep an open-mind and look for new and exciting things that are developing in Hollywood. Until now, I’ve had a lot of things to say, but no place to say it, hence my decision to start a blog.
My mission on this site is to present my views on a variety of subjects within the movie realm, through an entertaining and often informative personal perspective. My posts will mostly be opinion pieces, where I will share my own two cents on what’s currently happening. But, I also plan on writing movie reviews for this site, both for current releases and movies already out on video. I will also write reports about my experiences in the film world itself. I live in Los Angeles, just over the hill from Hollywood itself, so there are plenty of potential things for me to report on, such as special screenings, premieres, or exhibitions at the local museums. I also plan on doing top ten lists and retrospectives for this site; whatever I think would be worth writing about, I will bring it here.
In any case, I’m not looking for agreement on everything I say on this blog; in fact, if you disagree with me on something, I welcome it. I’m always looking to inspire discussions about movies everywhere I go and I hope that this website is able to do the same. If I can inspire a passionate rebuke that is able to change my perspective on things, it will be incredibly worthwhile. My hope is that I can bring people’s attention to movies and ideas that have sometimes fallen through the cracks, and help shed new light on them. I welcome feedback, because frankly, I’ll need it if I am ever going to get the hang of this.
So, having said all this, I’m going to formally welcome everyone to CineRamble.com and I look forward to actually getting this thing off the ground. Expect my first official post in the next week, or so. Hopefully it expands from here into something special. So, it’s time to take that first step down this rabbit hole and see where it goes. “LOOK, MEIN VIEWERS, I CAN WALK.”
