Guess who’s back?!

28 Sep

Just when you thought it was safe to turn on your computer… The Reel Thing is back and better than ever! With a slightly new name and a slightly new look, I’ve decided it’s time to get back on the proverbial horse and deliver my own unique brand of film rambling to the public once more.

The Reel Thing Rises, inspired by the similar rising of Dark Knight this summer, will feature all your old favourites; the latest reviews, random film news babble, public apologies to stars who I’ve threatened death upon or generally bad-mouthed in the past, and, of course, my own special brand of wit (and rage).

However, as the name reveals, this blog is rising to the next level and thus will also parade before you some brand spanking new features! Mostly because The Reel Thing Stays The Same just didn’t have the same ring to it…

You’ll be able to look forward to:

-A run down of my Top 20 film scenes of all time (I fully imagine that this feature will see me getting hella excited and hyper. Pardon my enthusiasm.)

-Prepare to be Irish-ified, as I explore the film industry in Ireland. As well as recommending and reviewing little known Irish classics, I’ll be adding a new feature called ‘Ireland on Location’, looking at the long history of filming in Ireland.

-And in early November you’ll be able to follow my coverage of the Corona Cork Film Festival.

So look forward to my first proper filmy post over the weekend. I’ve not really decided what to treat you with yet, but be assured that it will be awesome!

Ahhh, it’s good to be back…
