New look, new focus, same Film Buff

Welcome back to the site! Wait, “Welcome BACK?” you might be thinking? Well, if you’ve been reading my reviews for a while, then yes, chances are you’ve been here before. It just looks a lot different, and I’m not done with the changes yet.

Hey there Film Buff fans! Welcome back to this site!

Maybe you’re thinking “welcome back? I’ve never seen this before.” Well, chances are that’s correct — for the brief time between December 2014 and April 2015 when I was adding film reviews to this site, it really didn’t get much traffic. I’m hoping to change that in the days and months to come.

For those not in the know, this USED to be “Clueless Movie Reviews.” That name came from the original banner under which I wrote my reviews for CBS Radio from 2012 – 2014.

Going forward, I’ll be working under the brand I created more recently, “Film Buff.” As the to “unplugged” in the site’s name, well, check out my “About the Author” page for the low-down on that.

For now, reviews posted here will most likely cover smaller film releases. My next review should be Focus Features’ “BlacKkKlansman,” starring John David Washington and Adam Driver, directed by Spike Lee, coming in August.

Reviews won’t be as frequent at first due to scheduling constraints. Hopefully, in between I’ll be bringing you production news and announcements from all the major studios as I get them.

Construction on this site is by no means complete, either. Soon I hope to have a new logo, new header graphics, and other bells and whistles to make this site look more attractive to new followers.

Where things go from there is still up in the air. As some of you know, I’ve been toying in recent months with a return to podcasting. I’m still thinking about that.

What I’m committed to is continuing the work I started with CBS all those years ago. More than ever, I feel I’ve built my professional identity around being a film reviewer. It’s something I need to be doing.

I hope you all agree, and I hope you’ll continue to support me as this new chapter begins.
