RE: Cinema-Raznos#7(EN)

in #movie4 years ago

I've been reading through your movie reviews and they are pretty damn good. Famous movie critics talk a lot about technical shit about movies that most people don't care about. People want to know: What is the movie about, was it good or bad, and why?

You are doing a good job at that (although this post seems a little more rushed than some of your other ones). It is also really cool that you are doing these in English and Russian. Your English is very good, by the way. I just wanted to give you some friendly advice to help you reach more readers. Most English readers don't know what "Cinema Raznos" means. I Googled it and I'm still not sure what it means. Also, having the same title for all the posts with a #1,2,3,4.... makes people less likely to read it. If a reader clicks on your page and sees #7, they are less likely to read it because they will think they need to start at #1 and most people aren't going to bother.

Your title should be something like:
Movie Review: "The Post" starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

Also, your first sentence needs to grab people's attention and make them want to keep reading, or at least tell them what they are about to read. This is important because when people are browsing posts they can see the first 100 spaces you typed, even if they don't click on your post, so those are the most important words of your whole blog.

"Good day, dear readers! Today in the queue we have the picture of..."
This sounds nice and polite, but it does not catch people's attention.

Instead, do something like:
Stephen Spielberg's "The Post" is the true story of journalists who declared war on the White House and exposed the truth about the Vietnam War.

Now you start off with a famous director's name, people know it is a true story, it is about Vietnam, and journalists declaring war on the White House is going to get people's attention.

One more thing. Since you are Russian, and this movie is about American politics, I would LOVE to hear what you think about the movie from a Russian perspective. I would love to hear your thoughts about ANY American movie and have you talk about the differences between how the movie would have happened if it was in Russia instead of the United States or maybe the things you see in American movies that seem strange to you as a Russian. I think many people would be interested in that.

Keep up the good work Andrew.
