Recently, I have noticed that my reviews become a little stale and uninteresting. So, that has lead me to possibly change some things about reviews to make them more visually interesting and more in depth.
My first change is that I am adding a criteria named "Characterization." In Characterization, I will be analyzing the characters and how well they are developed, realized, and the general likability of the characters in the film or series. Since characters are arguably the most important aspect of any work of fiction, it is obviously an important aspect of my reviews. In the past, "Plot" was grouped with character develop and how well the characters were handled, but that is not the case anymore. To prevent my reviews from becoming even longer, I will being dropping the "Would I Watch This Again" part of the review since it is mostly unnecessary.
Another new thing is that my reviews will incorporate more pictures and gifs (moving pictures) into the reviews to provide a more visually pleasing look, or at least that is the intent. You may have noticed that in my review reviews for Spice and Wolf and Neon Genesis Evangelion that I did have the gifs and pictures, as well as the "Characterization" part in those posts. Please let me know if the pictures are distracting. Also, I have placed some of the pictures inside blocks of text to break up the usual visual style. Please comment and let me know if that makes the text more difficult to read. Some of my older reviews might not have the updated look.
Also, my rating system is being changed slightly because 7.0/10 seems to be the mark of an average movie, whereas that should be more around a 5 or 6. Therefore, if a movie receives a 6.0/10, know that it is still a decent and watchable movie, not a bad one.
One last thing to mention is that I will be coming out with some reviews for newer movies starting with my Ender's Game review tomorrow and my reviews for The Great Gatsby and Red 2 in the following weeks. For the anime fans out there, I will continue posting at least one anime related post a week since I am finally getting enough readers to warrant a continuation of those reviews with next week being a dual review of two different series.
Please comment and let me know what you think of my new changes to my review system and blog! Do you like it, or would you prefer I go back to my old review system?
