Reintroduction To The Film Friday Series Of Posts

English: Media Player Classic Application Icon.

Those of you with a keen eye looking at the categories here on Blazing Minds will have noticed the Film Friday category and those that have been reading the blog since it started over 4 years ago (wow time flies) will remember that I had a series posting about some classic films on a Friday.

The reason the series stopped was all down to time constraints, but lately I’ve got back in to doing more film reviews, all thanks to the Vue (Apollo) cinema in Rhyl, so the incentive to bring Classic Film Friday has taken hold, but the title has now changed and will be called simply “Film Friday”.

Reintroduction To The Film Friday Series Of Posts

What’s is Film Friday all about?

I have a rather nice collection of DVDs and there are many in the collection that are old movies or even ones that are a few years old and these are the ones that I use to select for the Film Friday posts.

How Old Are The Movies?

They can be anything from 1 year to 50+ you just never know!

Why Change The Name To Just Film Friday?

When I first started doing the posts it was just the aim for the classics, but as time has moved on and my DVD/Blu-Ray has grown, I thought it would be great just to go back to any film and bring you a review, if I’ve reviewed the cinema release then, I’ll still bring you a review of the DVD/Bu-Ray version as a comparison.

I did you to say that I would only do the classics with the below guidlines:

[amazon_link id=”B00009B0R9″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Citizen Kane : Special Edition [DVD] [1942][/amazon_link]It can be one or a collection of things, such as:

  1. Even after years it’s still a memorable movie.
  2. It has stood the test of time and still holds your viewing attention.
  3. It’s a cult movie.
  4. It’s a film that deserves to be brought back to the viewing public’s attention.
  5. It may have one of the key elements of movie making such as a great script, amazing actors or even a superb cinematic presence.

But as I mentioned earlier the collection has grown and there has been a lot of call for the reviews to come more frequently, as I have been complimented many times on my reviews. I’ve already posted some Film Friday posts in the last four years I’ve been blogging here on Blazing Minds, but there will be more coming soon, now hopefully I’m not going to run out of films too quickly ;)

      Yes the post has been re-posted to bring back the Friday features, that’s why some of the comments are from 2012!
