Hello, fellow moviegoers!
So fun fact. I started KruzeReviews three years ago today. It feels weird typing that. These past three years have gone by so fast. It’s almost surreal to think about. Starting this blog put me on a path that has led to a lot of great things in my life (and hopefully much more).
I haven’t posted on here in a while, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been active in reviewing films. As I’m sure many of you know, I am now reviewing films for the Daily Nebraskan. I love that job, and I’m really grateful to my editors Ellis Clopton, Joe John, and Sam Crisler (yes, I’m leaving the Oxford comma) for really pushing me to become a better writer with every article that I write.
I thought it would be kind of fun to talk about how exactly all of this got started.
Basically, it was on a whim. I was sitting in a friend’s basement, and I decided to try something. I was going to start a Twitter account on which I would talk about and review movies, TV, comics, and whatever I wanted to. I thought it would be interesting to try and get everything into 140 characters, however, I quickly discovered that was an inefficient way to review things. I couldn’t say everything I wanted to say.
I came to that realization after I saw the David Ayer film Fury. There was a lot to that film, and there was no possible way that I was going to be able to fit all of my thoughts into a tweet. So, during the drive home, I decided that I was going to start a blog.
I got home, jumped online, and started writing. Now here I am three years later.
I’ve since had film reviews published by the Fremont Tribune. I helped start my high school’s newspaper. I’m a freshman Journalism major and Film Studies minor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I actively write for the Daily Nebraskan. The Columbus Telegram picked up one of my articles last week. And this weekend I will be judging films for the White Light City Film Festival.
That all has happened following a heat-of-the-moment decision to start a Twitter account.
I’m so thankful for all the support I’ve gotten from everybody. It really means a lot. I’m doing what I love, and I hope to continue doing this for a long time.
Thanks for stopping by!
