Ever since non-family members started reading my blog, I have received emails from random people asking me to check out their independent movies and such. Although I eagerly snatch up any freebies that happen my way, I tend not to write about a lot of the stuff I see (goddamn, I'm an ungrateful prick). I decide not to write about most of this stuff based on the fact that I simply do not care for the movies in question. I figure that an honest review would be, well, dickish. In a nutshell, one of these reviews would go something like this, "Hey folks, you know that movie you never heard of? It sucks."
Every so often, however, someone sends something my way that tickles my fancy. The other day, for instance, I received an email Andre Perkowski regarding his youtube channel, terminal pictures (I didn't get any freebies here, so I'm not entirely sure why I'm writing about it). I haven't had a chance to look at many of his videos but I did watch "Silent Shadow of the Bat-Man", a splicing together of silent films to create a silent Batman movie. The resulting picture is what we in the critical world refer to as, neato.
[Side Note: If any of the people, who have sent me stuff that I have not written about, happens to read this post, I actually liked your work. I just haven't gotten around to writing about it yet. I wasn't talking about you in the first paragraph.]
