When I got a job right across from my local theatre, I got an idea. What better to do with my Friday paycheck than see a new movie every week? I love movies, I love writing, it’s a match made in heaven.
So then I started thinking of ideas for a blog, and I realized- I am not alone.
Like, at all.
Jeremy Jahns, Chris Stuckmann, CinemaSins, Honest Trailers, Schmoesknow, IHateEverything, RedLetterMedia and YourMovieSucks are all waaaaaaay ahead of me, producing high quality, hilarious movie reviews and analysis. And that’s just youtube. There’s thousands of other movie bloggers out there. I needed something to make my articles unique. Something that stood out.
And that’s when I decided to make a cookie-based movie blog.
At the end of all these reviews, I’ll give it a cookie-inspired rating. I’m doing this because A) It’s funny 2) I don’t find letter/number grades that useful when deciding what to watch and what to skip and lastly, because no one else is doing it. And it’s hard to find something no one else is doing on the internet.
Enjoy the blog, and here’s a breakdown of the cookie rating scale!
Double-stuffed Oreo: The theoretical perfect movie
Oreo: A movie that goes above and beyond, a solid A.
Chocolate Chip: Perfectly good, if perhaps a little familiar. Somewhere between a B and A-
Macadamia Nut: A movie that surprised me with its quality.
White Chocolate Chip: Good, but not as good as it could have been. Somewhere between a C and B-
Oatmeal Raisin: A movie that surprised me with its quality in a bad way.
Plain Oatmeal: A mediocre, plain, forgettable experience. Somewhere between a D- and C-
Biscuit: A movie so offensively bad, I can’t in good conscience even consider it a movie.
