In 2012 Chinese censorship made WordPress inaccessible to those without a VPN, which led me to find a new home for FOEC on Tumblr. But, after a long period of inactivity, I’ve decided to return to posting FOEC reviews and articles to WordPress, where I intend to be writing and publishing again on a regular basis.
As this is essentially a re-start for FOEC, I’ll be reposting several reviews that I initially published to Tumblr and continuing to fill-up the blog with reviews of what I’ve been watching and some specific articles, including new entries in the 13 Treasures column that I started back in 2011. One significant change from my previous posts will be the creation of a grading system, something I rejected in the past but have since found to be an increasingly useful tool for organising my thoughts on the hundreds of films and TV shows clamouring for space inside my tangled synapses.
As before, FOEC is primarily dedicated to analysing and celebrating contemporary films of the 21st Century but I will be making the occasional forays into cinema’s past with scattered reviews and broader articles.
As always, please share and comment on what you read. Half the fun of blogging anything is in engaging with the responses of equally passionate people and if you’re reading this then you’re likely to be just as passionate a film nerd as I am.
