EveryBrodyMovie.com is officially five years old today! I was reminded when the domain renewal email arrived. The first post was made on November 16, 2015, but I purchased the domain and started building on the 6th.
I should probably be further along by now, but I suppose it’s more enjoyable to go at my own pace. I really do love this place. It’s such a nice outlet.
As always, thank you for being here! I truly appreciate it.
As it turns out, I haven’t quite been doing these blog posts in the correct order. I had been going by year, basically, and not taking into account the exact release dates.
In some cases, I had gone according to U.S. release, when the movies came out much sooner elsewhere.
However, I’ve corrected the order now on the Films page. So, I’d recommend navigating via that list, vs. the archive. That is, if you’re someone who even cares if a movie that came out in March was reviewed before one that came out in January. Do whatever works for you. 🙂
Well, everything should look a lot more consistent now. I’ve put the information in the same order on each post (such as cast, director, etc), moved the “scores” to the bottom, and embedded trailers wherever possible.
A Question For You, the Visitors
What are your thoughts on the site layout? Should I renovate that, as well?
I’m still reformatting posts. It’s done up to Summer of Sam, so far. It’s a bit more of an undertaking than I’d anticipated, so please bear with me.
As a result of the upgrade I did recently (to remove banner ads), I was granted an additional domain. So, I chose brodymovies.com, as a sort of shortcut. It will redirect to everybrodymovie.com, anyway, but it’s just easier/faster to type. 😉
My social media and everything is already branded with Every Brody Movie, so that’s why I’m keeping that the primary.
I just purchased an upgrade for the site, to eliminate banner ads being all over the place. Hopefully, this will make your reading experience better, with fewer distractions. Just thought I’d let you know.
To say I’ve had a tough few months would be a vast understatement. I had a very painful injury (broken sewing needle lodged between layers of tissue in my foot), which led to an infection (because no one acted quickly enough to remove it), then surgery, and a long recovery. I’m still healing from nerve damage, which I’m told can take up to a year.
As you might imagine, being in nearly constant pain all these months, and having my mobility challenged (and taken away for several weeks) has caused my depression to rear its ugly head. It’s been winning the battle most days.
So, not much of anything has been getting done. Including writing here. Just this week, I’ve started making specific plans for getting my life on track. I would say “back on track,” but I’m trying to be honest, here. Ha ha.
Coming back here and updating regularly is definitely on my list of things I need to do to improve my situation. This is my outlet (along with my work at MovieBabble), and I love it. And I miss it!
However, there are some items on said list that take a higher priority, and need to be under my belt before I can make a successful return.
The plan is to come back in mid-late February.
Thank you all for your patience all this time. I can’t believe I haven’t written anything here since May!
“What happens to this blog when you finish the filmography?”
Well, first of all, I hope Adrien Brody will remain active in the film industry in whatever capacity he chooses. At the present, he has taken a step back from acting, to focus on producing. If this blog becomes focused on things he’s had a non-acting hand in creating, then that’s okay.
There are also some films in the can whose releases have been delayed, such as Emperor and Air Strike (aka: The Bombing, or Unbreakable Spirit). If those ever come out, I’d be happy to discuss them.
