So I made some improvements to my film/documentary/anime review blog known as Iridium Eye…

Hello, everyone.

As some of my followers may or may not know, I have more blogs besides this one. Sure, it is my main one where I focus on my spoken word/music project, but I have additional interests you know.

That other blog is Iridium Eye. My new slogan if you will, is “Reviewing the best movies and series you’ve never heard of.”

This is a little review blog where I post things every Saturday. If you’re looking for aย  place that’s all about the latest mainstream movies, this isn’t for you. I focus on media that’s lesser known to the mainstream zeitgeist.

I now made a menu of all my archived reviews from past to present. Everything is even in alphanumerical order from numbers to A to Z as redundant as it sounds. At the time of this post, I have written 135 articles critiquing things like indie movies, documentaries, anime, and short films.

Not everyone has checked it out since it’s inception in March 2017, but I would really encourage my followers and even some new faces to check it out. Iridium Eye has been cathartic for me and it helped me become more assertive even in real life.

“What stuff have you reviewed before?” You may ask.

Good question, and I’ll make some statements that might match your tastes in film and/or animation.

Do you like some quality foreign films?
I’ve talked about movies such as Before Your Eyes, Ringu, Mother of Mine, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (the original) to name a few.

Do you like some well-made documentaries?
I’ve reviewed docs like Danielson: A Family Movie, I Am Not Your Negro, Bananas!*, This Is Not a Film, and many more.

Do you like anime?
I’ve critiqued movies and series such as Cyborg 009: Call of Justice, The Ghost in the Shell: Arise prequels, Haibane Renmei, and Kino’s Journey to name a few.

Do you want to see Western animated films outside of the iron grip of companies like Disney, Dreamworks, or Illumination?
I’ve certainly highlighted lesser-known animated films such as The Secret of Kells, Ernest & Celestine, Fantastic Planet, and Song of the Sea for example.

Are you into old-school stuff?
I’ve discussed things such as Yojimbo, Kimba the White Lion, and Key the Metal Idol.

Feel free to check out Iridium Eye if you want to discover movies and series you might enjoy. If you know some of that stuff, then that’s awesome. Follow that blog as well, if you please.

  1. This is interesting: I am pretty much at the limit of the number of blogs I can follow (not that I don’t want to follow more blogs, but I am noticing it is getting harder to keep up with reading posts especially on weekdays where I have to work ๐Ÿ˜‚). But ….that said, I am still going to follow this one as it sounds pretty cool ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Okay. Sorry about that. I do appreciate you following nonetheless. You also have some great content on your blog. I hear you about trying to read posts on the weekdays because I get very busy with my work, too. At least there are 3 new reviews on Iridium Eye every Saturday, so that could work for many people. I appreciate the kind words.

      • Oh, really no need to apologise at all ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s like I said, I’m pretty much right at my limit now for the blogs that I want to follow. I’m not one of those people that are also so etimes around here on WordPress that just follow for the sake of following. I really wantte read the posts from the blogs I follow….and your blog looks seriously cool ๐Ÿ˜€
        Thank you for the kind words ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Okay. That’s good to know. I do tend to apologize a lot and I need to get rid of that habit.

        I understand where you’re coming from. I don’t just follow for following people, but I do check out people’s content whenever they do. I think it’s cool that my content seemed interesting enough on any of my blogs. You’re welcome.

  2. Good work on putting together an index. Cataloging over 100 reviews must have taken a bit of time. I too like having a page at hand that shows what has previously been covered. Sometimes new followers used it to find opinions of shows they plan to watch.

    • Thank you so much! It took a really long time to get everything accounted for and in order. I do feel stupid for not making an alphabetized list with everything Iโ€™ve reviewed before and next month will be my 1 year anniversary for Iridium Eye. I hope ya easier to navigate and to find out which movies, docs, and anime Iโ€™ve covered. I agree with you about newcomers using that as a tool to find something they want to see or even being open minded enough to check out something new.
