I got to feel like a movie star for a day when Andy Swinnerton of “Rorschach Reviews” interviewed me about my blog. Click on the link above to read the full discussion!

I “sat down” with mark (at separate computers) to ask him about his experience with blogging as well and more.
Rorschach Reviews: Between your tagline “For People who like their reviews short and sweet” and your blog’s name itself, you’ve firmly established your blog’s goal of giving your opinion in as few words as possible. Do you often find it difficult to condense your views to that format? What are some examples of movies for which you wish you could have written much more?
Mark Hobin: My reviews may be short, but they used to be REALLY short. When I originally started my blog, I was inspired by the one paragraph reviews found in Leonard Maltin’s annual Movie Guide. I appreciated his short succinct style. But when it came time to write a review for The Tree of Life, I felt a simple paragraph wouldn’t do justice to the film. I didn’t want to limit myself and so I wrote a longer review. I still try to keep it brief. I don’t enjoy writing or reading long reviews. However if I feel the movie warrants a longer review, I’ll write one.
