Editorial: COVID-19 and My Future Blog Posts


This week has seen a complete closure of cinemas, gyms, pubs, coffee shops and many other public places. It hardly needs reminding that COVID-19 has changed the fabric of our lives and way we do things. With the closure of major cinemas chains, reviewing new releases is going to be a dicey proposition. However, I’m taking this as a golden opportunity to finally commit to blog posts that I’ve put on the back burner.

To that end, I will finally get to themed months. This will comprise of an introductory post that briefly outlines what films I will be reviewing. I will let you know what platforms you could watch each film on. At the moment, I’m aiming to watch and review four films with a post a week. I might do a ending post reflecting on the director or genre of movies that I’ve reviewed, but I’m undecided at this point on that post.

I have also been working on some posts that focus on Film Music. These have the toughest to write as it’s not something I have much experience in writing about. But I promise to post them soon.

Along the way, there will be the usual sprinkling of top fives and reviews of new releases (if they’re released digitally). And stay tuned, there’s an upcoming review that I’m excited about. I do hope you can join me for my upcoming themed months. We’re all going through a rocky patch but we can unite over our love of movies. In the meantime, I hope you all stay safe and keep well.

How has your blog been affected by COVID-19? What kind of posts are you doing now? Let me know in the comments below.

About Sartaj Govind Singh

Notes from a distant observer: “Sartaj is a very eccentric fellow with a penchant for hats. He likes watching films and writes about them in great analytical detail. He has an MA degree in Philosophy and has been known to wear Mickey Mouse ears on his birthday.”
