Critic's Corner: Updates

Updated on November 29, 2014

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

Hello ladies and gentlemen. My name is Steven Escareno aka Stevennix2001, and I would first like to start off this hub by thanking all my followers for sticking with me for so many years. It really warms my heart that so many of you have supported me, and I can only hope to get better for all of you in the coming years. Thank you to all of you reading this hub.

Although there's a ton of different topics I wanted to discuss for this month's edition of "Critic's Corner", but I decided to do an update hub instead to make a few announcements. For starters, all reviews that I fell behind on last year (2013) are officially cancelled. As some of you readers know, I was going to try to review movies like "Machete Kills", "Kick Ass 2", "Saving Mr. Banks" and etc sometime this year because I never got a chance to last year. Sadly, with the Oscar season already in play, and this year coming to a close, I'm afraid sacrifices had to be made. Therefore, I have decided not to review any of the films that I couldn't do last year.

Don't get me wrong, I could always change my mind in the future about this. But for right now, it's not going to happen.

However, there is some good news though. As I mentioned before in my apology letter hub, you can still expect the top ten worst and best films of 2014 to be released sometime in early 2015. Plus, there will still be an Oscar prediction hub released as well.

Speaking of which, I have been toying around with the idea of possibly expanding my prediction hub award series to the razzies as well. However, I haven't decided whether or not I'll want to pursue taking on two prediction series next year, as it basically depends on where I'll be by that time.

A part of me wants to do it, but another part of me feels like it would only add unnecessary work to my already loaded schedule. However, if any of you have anything to add to this thought process (whether it be for or against doing a prediction for the razzies), then please leave your thoughts in the comment section.

To be honest, I think doing a "Razzie" prediction piece could be fun, but then would also mean I would be forced to WATCH every single film that was nominated in the Razzies.... ugh... Talk about a double edged sword there. Of course, I could always be like some people on this site, and just do a prediction movie hub, without seeing all the movies nominated. However, my obsessive compulsive personality won't allow that to happen. Therefore, even if I wanted to do that, then it would probably drive me nuts.

Anyway, I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, as I usually hate telling you guys stuff about cancelled projects like this. Therefore, I'm only going to promise you folks that I'm going to try to get better at this year after year, as I feel that is one promise that I know I can keep.

As for next year, there will be some significant changes as well. As I mentioned briefly during one of my last updates, I will be branching out next year to talk about other topics outside of movies. Some of these topics will range from sports to current events. Heck, I've actually contemplated the idea of writing a few short stories as well.

Although it's been ages since I've done anything creatively, I figured it would be a nice change of pace for me. However, I wouldn't worry. Movie reviews and film news will still remain the number one priority on this account, but all I'm doing is diversifying my topics a bit.

I can't promise they'll be any good considering it's been ages since I've written any stories, but I can promise you that like my reviews they will get better over time. That much I can guarantee you.

Anyway, I hope you all have a happy holiday if I don't see any of you for a while, and stay classy out there folks.

Since it's close to the holidays, I'd like to end this hub on a cheerful note. Please enjoy the following video
