I know I’m late getting this out, but I just wanted to wish all the readers of this little old website a very Happy New Year. It’s hard for me to put into words just how much I appreciate all of you who visit, read, and/or comment on my reviews, commentaries, or features. It means a lot. It’s a great encouragement knowing people are finding some enjoyment here. It’s also a lot of fun talking movies with the many people I’ve e-met here over the years.
2022 was a pretty wild year for me in terms of reviewing movies professionally and exposure. I’m hoping 2023 sees even more growth. And while some exciting critic opportunities opened up for me outside of this website, Keith & the Movies remains an important and beloved outlet for me. So I have no plans of shutting it down any time soon. In fact, I can’t wait to see where it goes from here, in large part thanks to all of you.
I do have a few goals in mind for 2023.
- Last year I watched and reviewed over 220 new movies. That takes a lot time. I’m not planning on slowing down, but going forward some reviews may be a bit more concise and slightly less exhaustive.
- I’m hoping to squeeze in a few more Retro Reviews. I’ve had a ton of fun revisiting and reviewing older movies that for one reason or another haven’t been added to my movie review archive. I’d love to do more of them.
- I’m also hoping to add a couple more features. Some may be new. I may revive some older ones. I have some ideas, but it will all come down to time.
Anyway, those are just some of the things I’m thinking about doing in the year to come. I hope you’ll be here and enjoy them. And again, I appreciate all the contributions you all have made on this site in 2022. Simply visiting and reading means so much. So thank you and a very Happy New Year to you and yours. Here’s to a amazing 2023.
Keep up the fabulous work in 2023, Keith! All the best! Happy new year.
Thanks my friend. Enjoyed the years of fun movie convos.
Happy New Year to you as well. 2022 turned out to be pretty good for me as I saw 320 films overall which was a big improvement over the last couple of years.
Whew!!!! 320? Nice!
and I got to achieve that goal of watching 52 films by women as first-timers and I did it!
Same to you and yours, Keith. As Vic said, keep up the fabulous work.
Thanks so much. Here’s to many more years of good movie talk with you.
Happy New Year, my friend. Glad that your blog is doing so well. I look forward to seeing more of your review posts in 2023!
Appreciate you Jason. Thanks for the visits and wishing you the best in 2023. We have a lot of good movies coming our way this year.
Most definitely!!! Can’t wait!
Glad you plan on keeping the blog going. A lot of folks are moving to podcasts, and I like those, but they are time consuming. Well written posts are better for your brain and easier to go back to when necessary. I’m also glad you are having some professional success, good on you. Happy New Year, you keep writing, I’ll keep reading.
Thanks so much. Podcasts and video reviews are nice, but I really do prefer the written form. So I’m sticking with it. And 2023 should provide a lot to write about. Cheers my friend.
Happy New Year Keith!
Thanks! And to you as well.
Happy New Year Keith! Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much. All the best to you in 2023.
Happy New Year!!
Right back ‘atcha!
Keith you’re my first resource (sorry that’s meant as a compliment) I turn to when thinking about watching a movie or when I want to know what’s out there. It is not surprising at all that your opportunities and offers continue to grow. Happy to know you will continue the blog and will be reviewing older-than-current movies. With the internet, time is relative when it comes to cinema. Best Wishes to You also!
That’s quite humbling and really encouraging. Thanks for that. The main thing is that it’s still a lot of fun. I just enjoy doing it, whether I get paid for it or not. And I love the conversations and listening to other points of view.
Looking forward to Barbie this July?
Keith, I love the WB “The End” – very nice touch. It has been a genuine pleasure finding your site in 2022, and I look forward to your reviews in the New Year. All the best to you and yours in 2023, Bruce (aka WOTC)
Thanks so much Bruce. As for the WB tag, I first used it on the end of some features years ago. I don’t use it as much but I still kinda love it.
