State of the Blog – June 2017

As we inch towards the halfway point of the year, blockbuster season is now in full swing.  Here at Plot and Theme, things are going swimmingly, and I’ve got a lot of cool things going on, plus neat flicks and pieces on the blog to look forward to.  But, we’ll start by looking back on what went down during the month of May, both in the greater landscape of cinema, and here on my humble little blag.

Post #300 on Plot and Theme!

For my 300th post here on Plot and Theme, I decided to update all my readers by explaining the next phase of my blogging, which involves getting the word out that the blog is growing and rewarding readers who support my nonsensical writings.

State of the Blog: May 2017

April showers bring May flowers, Mayflowers bring pilgrims, and May itself brings the start of Summer Blockbuster Season, that baffling mixture of excitement and predictable, four-quadrant committeethink.  As we touch base at the beginning of this season, I’ll discuss the films that have me stoked for this month (both big and small), talk about a few pieces I have in the works, and generally lay out the plans of Plot and Theme.  Not too complicated, but it should at least be fun.

State of the Blog – April 2017

It’s April, the lion of March has transfigured into a lamb (at least I think that’s how it works), and now the fools have come and gone (I’m sure).  All the while, the endless cycle of movie releases continues unabated and I’m here on Plot and Theme to contribute to the confusion with my entirely correct opinions.  This month, the blog turns two full years old, I creep close to 300 total posts, and I’ve got some great pieces in the pipeline.  We’ll talk about all of that plus some cool new movies to keep your eyes out for in the month of April.

State of the Blog – March 2017

Here at Plot and Theme, March promises to be an especially exciting month, especially compared to the relative doldrums of the year so far.  There have been extremely strong stand-outs so far (see Get Out), but like most Januaries and Februaries, there is much more trash than anything else.  So, for this State of the Blog, I’ll be a little more forward-looking.  I’ll definitely remark on the best films I saw and reviewed in February, and briefly discuss the tedious and unremarkable Oscars night.  But I’ll spend most of my time in anticipation of the movies releasing this month and the pieces I will look to write.

State of the Blog – February 2017

February is going to be a great month for catching up on older movies and writing.  The theaters are not going to have too much to offer, and the Oscars are sure to be charged with politics (in case you’re not aware – they already are, and for good reason).  But, all is not lost.  There’s going to be some cool things going on here on the blog, and I am sure that at least one movie will end up being a pleasant surprise (my money is on Get Out).
