Two weeks ago, I posted my review of the film Sucker Punch and instead of just saying why I thought the film was good or not, I attempted to look deeper into the meaning of a film many are just passing off as an exploitive fantasy. This review post has received over 1, 600 page views to date; which is five times as many as my next highest review post! I think this demonstrates several things: One: that there are many people who have not seen the film, but have read the many negative reviews and are looking for someone who has something positive to say about it. Two: that the people who have seen it and were angry or at least perplexed by it are looking for someone who has at least attempted to find some deeper meaning to the film, or at least make some sense of it. Three: that there are well over 1000 people who are interested in Sucker Punch, but not in what I have to say about it.
I came to the conclusion on this last point, because I have only received one comment on my review of Sucker Punch! One of the things I like about blogging, and reviewing films in particular, is the feedback I get in the posted comments area of my blog. I really enjoy reading what people think of my review; whether it is to agree with my points, or to disagree with my points. This exchange of ideas and opinions really excites me and makes me want to make my next posted review even better!
I’ve only been blogging now for about sixteen months, but I already follow about two-dozen blogs. Whenever I think I can add something of value to the posting of someone else’s blog, I post a comment there. One of the most rewarding parts of this is getting a response from the blogger on my comments. I find it very interesting when someone responds to my comments, because it helps me to better understand what the blogger was trying to say in their post on their blog. Because of this, I always answer the comments posted on my blog’s posts, because I’m assuming that the person commenting feels the same way I do.
So please take this as an open invitation to post comments on my reviews and let me know what you think!
If you are interested in finding out if there was any real depth or meaning to Sucker Punch, keep and eye on this blog, as I will soon be posting some interesting comments on the film by the director Zack Snyder himself!
