Three Years of Fat Jesus Reviews

It's been three years now since I formally made a blog dedicated to where I want to be eventually in life. This place! I want to review things. Over the last three years I've posted 151 articles, which is roughly one post a week. I never thought I'd be able to keep a pace like that. I want to be a guy that people can come to and get opinions on films. Perhaps even video games and pro wrestling too, as I've dabbled in both on here as well. Hopefully you can respect the opinions that I have too! Because those three things are who I am and I have a passion for all of them.

I want to address why posts have been so sporadic this past year and it's mostly because of going back to school. I took five classes over the past year where I had to write weekly papers and it really burnt me out from doing reviews. I want to change that this year as I'm in a place with my education where I'm not taking more writing classes, until I can transfer, and I can focus more on writing about things that I enjoy this year.

I still plan on doing my reviews of the Best Picture contenders at this years Academy Awards, my Academy Awards preview and thoughts on it afterward. But beyond that I want to get into writing a little bit more about wrestling and continuing on with the newer films I watch throughout the year. So some new and more of the same. I want to do more trilogy reviews as well. I really liked going through films in series and seeing how they got better or worse as the stories progressed.

I don't want this to be a long-winded post, but I do want to take everyone who has ever read, retweeted, favorited or shared any of my articles over the past three years. I appreciate every view, comment (even though I don't get a ton) and criticism of my writing. I know I have typos here and there, but I like to think I've progressed a long way in the past three years. So thank you in every regard, because when I see 30 or more views on a post I get really excited that someone out there is reading my thoughts and hopefully forming a deeper opinion on the thing they're reading about.

I plan on doing a post in the next week (assuming things break my way bills-wise) of all the films I've been watching over fall and winter (so far) of this past year. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Brooklyn, Room, The Revenant, The Hateful Eight, The Good Dinosaur, Straight Outta Compton, Spectre, Spotlight, The Big Short, The Walk as well as a few other films like Sisters and Sleeping with Other People will be talked about in one form or another in the next couple of months, so stay tuned for all of that!

So for all the people that have been reading from the beginning and the people who may be reading this post as their first one, thank you for all the support, and I can't wait to share more of my thoughts with you going forward!
