Hi! My name is Marco Amato and welcome to my brand new blog! Marco Watches It, Marco Means It. On here I'll be commenting, reviewing and discussing film and television that I find personally interesting or engaging. I'll post film reviews, editorials and even fan theories regarding my favorite films and television programs! I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback on my words so please do not hesitate to leave a comment! I'll give fair warning that while I am a writer, I also suffer from ADHD, so some blog posts may diffuse into rants, or diatribes before coming back to the main point. However, I feel this is commonplace for most film enthusiasts, in fact it's probably commonplace for most enthusiasts of anything, whether it be film, sports, BDSM, Pokémon, whatever! Most people who love something can't shut the fuck up about it. That's one of the main reasons I want to start this blog, to spare my family and friends from my restless mouth!
I am an aspiring screenwriter and firmly believe that in order to write for film, you must have an avid passion for watching, analyzing and understanding film's themselves. Of course, film isn't just about criticism, sometimes a good flick should accomplish nothing more than catching your attention and holding onto it for the whole runtime, however long it may be (*cough Mr. Spielberg *cough). Underneath all the symbolism, film noir and special effects, a film should entertain, because that is one of its fundamental values and purposes in this world.
I'll try my best to post as often as I can, God knows I watch enough film and television to discuss it on a semi-daily basis. I am so excited/nervous/anxious/aroused/terrified/aroused again to begin this journey into cyberspace. So with a bucket of popcorn and a cold beverage by my side, let's talk about the big screen, the small screen, and the middle man in it all, the audience member. Here, we, go!
