What’s in a name?

Attentive readers may already have noticed that I recently changed the title lines of my movie reviews from a simple “Movie Review” to “Minute Movie Review”. The change might seem minuscule, but I’d still like to explain it.

For some time, calling this things movie reviews has bothered me. Sure, in a way that’s exactly what they are, but in truth they tell very little about the film they supposedly review. When I first started writing them, my idea was nothing less than to revolutionize how movies are criticized.

Obviously, this completely failed.

Instead, they have become a way for me to keep track of which movies I’ve recently watched – what they were about and whether I liked them. Additionally, they were a chance for you, my dear readers, to see quickly, whether you might want to see a movie. They are more of a recommendation than reviews, I guess. But calling them “Movie Recommendation” would have been silly – first because I always slow down typing when spelling recommendation and also because I wouldn’t recommend a fair number of these films. Thus the title of “Minute Movie Review” was born.

They are not called “Minute Movie Review” because you should be able to read them in a minute (which, admittedly, shouldn’t be a problem for even a slow reader), but because I always set out to write them in a minute. Which actually never works out, but that is completely besides the point.

So, in the next few days, I will go back through the archives and rename all the old entries, because that’s just the kind of person I am. And also in the next few days, I will inform you of the other reason to rename these short reviews. Great things are afoot at Fabricated Truth, but for more on that you’ll have to wait a couple of days. Because that’s also the kind of person I am.
