The idea: To promote the Olympia Film Society through my patronage, writing and publicity.
The ignorance philosophy: I will attempt to remain as ignorant about the movies as possible prior to my attendance so as to minimize my commercial preconceptions in the reviewing process. To accomplish this goal I: do not watch television, close my eyes and stick a finger in my one good ear during previews and refuse to read about movies online or in print.
The content: I will provide my first response to both the movie title and promotional poster following the assumption that each were deliberately created as a part of the whole art intent. As a general rule of thumb, I will attempt to prepare future viewers for the movie while giving away as little as I can about the actual plot. A semi-traditional American Haiku quoting one line from the movie will accompany each review and should only make sense after you see it, at which point I hope it is seen as sensibly emblematic of the film itself. I will attempt to provide hyperlinks for my references.
The rating system: I will rate each movie on a 0 to 5 Oly Stubbie scale with an infinite decimal system (and anything else I decide to throw in).
Reader input: Please feel free to tell me whether or not you think these suck, are great, or lay somewhere in between. I assure you that your input will not change my approach.
