Three years of blogging on NZ Film Freak. Not a bad achievement!
I have completed my Bachelor of Communications degree, majoring in journalism, which has led me to amazing opportunities such as working for a community newspaper, and a legit film reviewing site called Flicks.
Since graduating, the question I have been asked like a broken record is:
“So… what next?”
And fair enough; what am I going to do with my life?
(Perhaps university doesn’t prepare you for answering this giant question because they want you to feel so overwhelmed with the real world that you end up turning around and enrolling in an expensive post-grad course.)
I do take inspiration from movies when having to make a big decision. For example, after watching Julie & Julia I decided to create this very blog!
In the case of post-uni life, I seriously considered doing what the main character did in Into the Wild. But that was before I watched the ending.
However, I shall find my path as a grown-up!
I’m going to continue Film Freaking, and I hope to work in the exciting world of radio! Perhaps reviewing films, or writing on websites or talking about music or…
I love the idea of working in radio, (not just because the guys on The Boat that Rocked looked like they had so much fun), but also because I’ve become a bit more familiar with it since doing voice overs.
Also, I’ve been listening to a lot of The Ricky Gervais Show, which features Karl Pilkington. Working around great, charismatic people seems like a grand thing to be a part of.
Enough of me, though!
2014 has brought us a lot of animated films, and a few more epics like last year! But ultimately, it’s a mixed bag.
I haven’t reviewed an awful lot this year, so I do apologise! But I have to say, I think last year’s assortment was better.
2014 reviewed movies:
Gold, Jerry, Gold!
Thelma & Louise
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Yada, Yada, Yada…
Deliver Us From Evil
A Show About Nothing!
Transformers: Age of Extinction
Love Thy Neighbour
The Louise Log
Wild Girl Waltz
Reza Abdoh – Theatre Visionary
Film Premiere at Cricket World Cup
The One Minute Fly Show (Web Series)
Invert: Origin of the Telepathic Hero
