I’m pleased to announce the official relaunch of Movie Burger, where everything is made up and the points don’t matter!
Long-time readers will know that Movie Burger first launched in 2011, and grew to feature hundreds of pages of original content all about the silver screen.
After a quiet spell, Movie Burger now returns with a new website, clean slate (old posts have been archived and may be re-uploaded over time) and renewed focus on fun, escapist entertainment.
This is an exciting time, and I hope that you will join me on this journey through the wonderful world of movie magic.
What makes Movie Burger different?
As Anton Ego so eloquently puts it in Ratatouille, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than any criticism designating it so.
I believe that wholeheartedly, and my mission with Movie Burger is to try to find the positives in films new and old. It’s about second chances, redeeming qualities and saving graces – while still acknowledging faults where they appear.
It’s about a different perspective, balancing the good and the bad, that will hopefully help you to determine whether you might enjoy a particular movie, rather than convincing you that a movie is awful and the filmmakers behind it should never have been born.
In my experience, very rarely is a film utterly devoid of quality and so morally bankrupt as to warrant the critical lambasting that many seem to receive. That’s not to say it doesn’t happen however.
At the very least, I hope that I can share my love of movies and in so doing maybe readers will take away something that will help to enrich their movie experience one way or another.
