I love great movies and I am constantly discovering more all the time. That’s truly part of the joy of watching new movies, finding a new hidden treasure that I get to unearth and tell others about. But there’s also nothing quite like returning to a favorite classic after a long time away.I’m not sure which makes me more excited.
It’s for these precise reasons that I review and write about films. 4 Star Films has gone through several iterations. First, it was a place to write down stray thoughts about classic movies, but I like to think that it’s a bit more substantial now as a place where I can hopefully get other people thinking about movies on a deeper level.
True, I want to preserve a love of film as art, understand their historical context, and acknowledge their value as pure entertainment. But most importantly, there’s the human component to movies that is so important. I’m constantly drawn back to them, like so many others, because they bring us together and are an imperfect reflection of our imperfect lives. Stories full of redemption and failure, joy and sadness, good and evil. But don’t get me wrong. They’re also just a lot of fun, and I want to share in that with other people. What better way to do that than watching the best movies and talking about them? Please join me!
