After tragedy struck in the Autumn of 2017 forcing writer Bryan Parry (Bryan Parry) to cease work on his movie reviews blog, he had to rebuild his life. He was determined that 2020 would be his year, the year to relaunch his career and achieve success. Little did he know a global pandemic would strike. Can Bryan juggle commitments as husband and father, and power through the worst pandemic in a hundred years, to achieve his goal of online writing success, or will he succumb to the pressures of life?
Movie Reviews Blog (2020) is the long-awaited reboot of Film Movie TV Blog (2017) and the abortive reboot Film Movie TV Blog (2018). A slow-mover, the film sees Bryan slowly consolidate, expand and extend the reach of his blog, introducing new features along the way (such as social media channels Twitter and Instagram) and the Hall of Fame and Shame, and increasing production to upwards of two articles a week. His readership has increased massively, perhaps also helped along with his trademark touches of humour.
Not everyone’s cup of tea, Movie Reviews Blog is none-the-less the tale of how, even given hard circumstances, anyone can make progress. However, the story feels somewhat incomplete, almost as if the final act was missing. Perhaps the rumoured sequel Movie Reviews Blog 2021 (2021) will see our hero Bryan become a break-out success.
