Jeremiah 30:2 “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you'”
Good Morning, Evening, and Afternoon! My name is Ashlen Burns, your blogger, and classic film guru! I am 23-years-young and looking to grow with all of you in Classic Film.
The reason I started this page is because I was inspired by my mother to begin a blog on Classic Film. I have a great passion for film of every genre: from Action/Adventure, to Horror films, Sci-fi Fantasty, and even Indie! I’ve grown up in a home of film lovers. My Father loves Action/Adventure and Comedy, my brother loves Anime, Sci-fi Fantasy and Horror, my sister enjoys indies and dramas, my younger sister enjoys bio-pics, while my mother enjoys Classics.
My entire family has inspired me with film. It’s one of our ‘get-away’ activities. And though I really enjoy all kinds, Classics are dearest to me. They have such class and originality. They will live on through the ages, and I only wish to expand more on my knowledge of them.
Now, I cannot say that I have seen every single classic film that there is to know. I have so many that I want to get to, but that is why I am blogging. I want to write on the films I haven’t seen, just as if it is it’s premiere release! Of course, I will also write on the films that I love, but I am far more interested in sharing on the films that are unknown to me.
Either way, this is just a bit of information on why I love film, and where the origins of my admiration came from.
Well I’m at it. Here is a list of all my favorite Classic and Non-Classic Films:
