A "Re-toggle"

I know that I haven't posted a review in some time and I apologize for that. I've been doing some serious thinking about the future of this blog and that put a bit of a crimp in my regular production. No, I'm not closing Cinema Whatever down or anything, but there are going to be some pretty significant changes to it.

First of all, I've enjoyed myself immensely during my time reviewing movies. I've now reviewed 472 films which I'm very proud of. Although I like to pretend that my earliest reviews don't exist (really, don't go look at those), I have to say that I'm very happy with the progress I've made in terms of critiquing films and my writing skills. I've also made some great friends along the way which has been a great experience.

That's why it's hard for me to announce that I'm going to be "re-toggling" Cinema Whatever from its current form. CW has been nothing but movie reviews published close to daily which unsurprisingly does take quite a bit of time. With the way my current life situation is, I can no longer afford to spend that amount of time every day to doing movie reviews. I wish I could do nothing but watch movies and write reviews, but it's just not in the cards.

What I'd like to start doing are opinion pieces about... well whatever has to do with movies really. I've got some ideas swimming around my head as we speak, but that's the direction I see Cinema Whatever going in. I'm targeting a weekly timeline for these pieces and I might just throw in the odd movie review here and there if I really feel like it.

So with that beings said, thanks to everyone for all the support that I've gotten from the start of Cinema Whatever and I hope you'll all still be around for the ride. Cinema Whatever isn't going anywhere. It's just changing direction.
