I have been given the incredible opportunity to write a weekly film review for Seroword, a new platform for young people to gain experience in arts journalism. So far, I have reviewed Whiplash, an impossibly engaging story of a young jazz drummer and his battle with his near-psychotic teacher, and will continue to keep this blog updated with links to my weekly pieces.
As with most positives, there comes a much-unwanted negative. Writing for Seroword means I won’t have as much time to spend writing for this blog. But, for those out there that read my reviews (I love every single one of you), I’ll try and post at least once a week – as they say, keeping the creative juices constantly flowing.
So far, I’ve
seen experienced Interstellar twice. I’ve been having Nolan cravings all week so I’ve prescribed another viewing this weekend.
But for now, I’ll leave you with some words of wisdom that I just can’t stop thinking about:
“We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments, these moments where we dared to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we’ve lost all that. Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. That we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us. ‘Cos our destiny lies above us.”
