Well well well, I guess I need to give you the details on this little work in progress.
First, welcome to my blog/site Another Plot Device. This site is a little fun hobby/project that I have kicked around for a while but never really went through the motion of creating. Another Plot Device is more or less a movie blog, but I know what you are going to say, “but there are hundreds of other movie blog sites out there. What could you possibly add to the myriad of sites out there?” Well to tell you the truth, nothing really. This isn’t a site where I am breaking with the latest trailer for a rom-com or the next casting update for Batman. This is place where I just want to post or discuss whatever I please.
Second, a little about myself. I am a cinephile. If you aren’t sure what that is, click here. With me being a cinephile, there are a lot of inherit truths. I love to talk about, watch and surround myself with movies. On my facebook account I started to post a Movie of the Day, everyday, since September 2010. It was just born out of boredom one day and I started receiving feedback from my friends about some of the movies I posted. Some wanted to know more about the movies and others wanted to chime in with a quick witty comment here and there (which I love). So after several months, I wanted to actually have a site to post additional material that goes with the Movie of the Day. I wanted to add some insight, why I like this particular movie and anything else I wanted. Posting on Faccebook is nice, but limiting in terms of the amount of text and responses one can add to an existing post. So out of that chaos and my need to use up some of my free time, here we have Another Plot Device.
So to wrap this up. This site is an extension of what I started doing on my facebook account. This is more of a pet project for me. The aim is not to be a premier movie blog, cause there are many other film sites that are far better at blogging than I am and also do that for a living. I do this because I want to and I find it fun. This is still in the beginning phases of development. I will post my Movie of the Day, maybe even a trailer of the week, or even other film related stuff that I find interesting and think some people should know about. Hell I might just post pictures of my dog Dexter re-enacting scenes from movies for my amusement…
If you like what you read and see, please post. If you are here to be a dick and post rude stuff, that is your right as an American.
Leave some feedback and enjoy.
