I probably should have updated this earlier, but here goes.
Bill’s Movie Emporium is a site for reviews, maybe the odd rambling every once in a while, of movies from any year and any genre. It’s a pretty simple concept and I hope to over time populate it with scores of reviews.
I’m not too big on themes, but every once in a while I will devote time to reviews of movies that fall under a certain theme. Every October is Splatter Time Fun Fest, and that will never change on account of me being a huge horror fan. I will take part in a few different film marathons every now and then as well. I don’t care about spoilers, so know that when you read this site there will be spoilers everywhere!
The only writer (with the exception of my wife, Sarah, who will occasionally pop in for a review here and there) you will find at Bill’s Movie Emporium, is moi, Bill Thompson. I’m a twenty something, about to be thirty something, dude from Illinois that loves movies. That’s really all there is to know, I love movies and I love to write about them and thus this site was born.
Anyone looking to contact me for any reason (feedback, screeners, etc.) feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, feel free to seek me out through my Twitter account, or the blog’s Facebook page.
This is just a quick little note about my ratings because I realize I have yet to divulge what my system is. I use the four star system, so any rating you see is out of four stars. Not that my pitiful ratings matter, but now you know, and knowing is half the battle!
The worst of the worst
It may have featured some decent eye candy or something
I enjoyed maybe one scene
I enjoyed maybe two scenes
Mediocre be thy name
Decent movie, some good performances, but never came together
Good movie, a bit lacking in parts, but an enjoyable experience and a movie I’d watch again
Great movie, excellent acting, story, direction, only some minor flaws
Brilliant direction, acting, story, plot, everything about the movie clicks, I would recommend this movie to anyone
There ya go, now my rating system has been revealed and you know all my secrets.
