Galactic Pillow – February 2014 Update
Well, February has arrived and I find myself basically back on track for Galactic Pillow blog updates. In January I posted 13 movie and video game trailers and managed to pen 3 reviews, one shy of my intended 4 per month. When I first started this blog many years ago I had hoped to do 8 reviews per month (2 per week) but due to time constraints that idea didn’t last too long. Nowadays, I’m happy to hit one per week.
Regardless, the video game and movie reviews remain the heart of this site and drive most of the traffic. I find that I get many hits for some older reviews, especially those focusing on foreign movies and TV shows like the Japanese dramas. I wish I could do more drama reviews but those take more time, plus the fact that it just takes longer as I need to watch the whole series.
Last month I promised to start posting some of my video game reviews on next-gen console titles and though I’m a bit late, I’m finally ready to go, so later today I’ll begin to upload my thoughts on Xbox One and Playstation 4 games. Much like watching entire TV seasons it takes me a long time to do console game reviews merely because I make it a point to only write about them once they are completed. I realize other movie and video game sites do initial impression posts but I tend to enjoy articles from authors who have actually finished watching movies or playing the entire game.
Giving impressions about part of a film or game certainly has merit but I’d hope the author makes it a point to include a disclaimer that it does not apply to the entire product.
Regardless, I hope to increase my output this month to meet and exceed my one review per week minimum. Looking at the release schedule I’m sure I’ll be penning a review for the upcoming Lego Movie opening this week as my son has been begging me daily to see this film. As for the rest of the month, I’m not exactly keen to see Robocop or Pompeii but I might end up going anyways. I do have a huge backlog of games and Blu-Ray sitting on my table right now so I might just end up trying to whittle it down to something manageable.
As always, if you have a movie/TV show/video game you’d like me to review just send me a request through the comment system.
