I've found over the past few months that finding something to write about each film has come to seem like something of an obligation - and it's not especially linked to whether or not I like the film, or think it's a good film. It's just that certain films seem to spark the urge to set down a few thoughts (a few titles even prompt me to be coherent), and others, for a variety of reasons, don't. While I've certainly seen my share of uninspiring flicks recently, particularly during several long plane flights, there are "good" films which occasionally leave me with difficulty articulating intelligent thoughts, too, and I've been building a longer and longer backlog of half-written posts, rather than simply moving on.
In addition, I've found myself with less time on my hands as I've started working towards a Ph.D., and I'd prefer to watch more films rather than stare at the screen trying to think of something intelligent to say (especially when the film doesn't seem worth the effort; there's a certain sameness, I've noticed, to many of the paragraphs on mediocre releases, and of late writing on those titles has felt like drawing blood from a stone - not a worthwhile endeavour).
I'll still post on each film I see, but henceforth it may be just a picture and a brief comment - or perhaps only the picture - to keep with the overall theme. Hopefully, then, when I see a film that inspires the urge to write at greater length, I'll have a bit more in the tank.
