Best time to write a film review?
This thought came across my mind when reviewing Eclipse last week, and thinking about when the best time to write your movie review is. Baring in mind over the past few months I have not really reviewed many films, as have found myself extremely busy. Hopefully know I have managed to find a happy medium and manage to continue in a better manner with this blog.
For me when I write a review really does depend on the film. After seeing certain films I feel the need to quickly draft some thoughts down, in a start to the review. However, at times I write the review as quick as possible after watching the film. Some films with tougher subject matters and more thought into them often require a couple of days to let it all digest properly.
Whilst on my none posting period on the blog, I did go to the cinema and even start drafts for different film reviews. But for some of these films I feel as though the time may have passed until I can get a second viewing of the film, as too much time has passed since I watched them now.
My main point of this blog post is to get opinions of what my fellow bloggers find as the best approach.
So I propose these questions to you:
1. When do you write your film review?
2. How long do feel is too long after seeing a film to write a review?
3. Any particular film genre you struggle with the reviews?
