Welcome to Our Blog
January 6, 2010
Welcome, friends, family, and random strangers who stumble upon this blog while listlessly wandering through the wastes and jungles of the internet. If you don’t already know, this is a film blog, a ‘flog’ if you will. The purpose of this flog is to provide you, the reader, with insightful movie reviews as well as news and links and other movie related media. This is something that I’ve wanted to create for a long time and after proposing the idea to a few of my former college roommates as a joint effort, it began to take shape. The hardest part was coming up with a name really, at one point it was almost called “Nate Dumped Pop and Popcorn on Me at the Opening Night of Star Trek and I’m Still Not Over It”, but after much debate and a lot of crappy suggestions, we decided on “Shut Up and Watch the Movie.” It had a nice ring to it and just enough irony to warrant a smirk. Paired with a quote from Shepherd Book, of Firefly fame, it was perfect. So here it is, my film blog is a reality, you’re looking at it. I’d suggest checking out each of our author’s Top 25 Films of the Decade lists. If you’d like updates on when we post articles then check out our Facebook page and become a fan. Thanks for checking out our blog, I hope you have fun and enjoy our reviews!
