You may have noticed that recently I've been republishing reviews that have appeared on another site. I'm leaving all of the DVD information with my DVDMon.com reviews and excising it in the transition to here. (I'm providing links to the originals for those who might like that information.) I'm also revising them as I see fit, which may amount to no changes, minor grammar corrections and wording changes, deleted remarks, additional commentary, or some combination of these. The most substantial changes will come in reviews for those films I see again, such as the new content in my UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG review.
I'm not severing ties with DVDMon.com--in fact, I'll probably have something for it in the next couple weeks--but with Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema becoming my online home, it makes sense to compile as much in one place as possible. Republishing reviews here will also help keep the blog regularly updated and bring new attention to my older work, the quality of which has pleasantly surprised me, for the most part.
While I'm talking about the site, I might as well point out that one of my regular Google searches about myself--c'mon you know you do it to...I mean about yourself, not me--turned up one of my review quotes on Insights, a web magazine for the New South Wales Synod of the Uniting Church in Australia. They're giving away passes for BECAUSE OF WINN-DIXIE and selected one of my quotes for use on the contest entry page. Pretty wild.
