5 posts I loved writing that you may have missed:
1. 10 movie pets you'd love to adopt
2. Black Swan - Possession theory, step by step.
3. Sisterhood in film
4. A Guide for Alan Rickman's movie partners.
5. The Tale of Michael Fassbender and his many on-screen deaths.


So here we are, exactly one year later. I started Cinematic Corner and at first I simply wanted a decent place to post my reviews at, since last.fm is primarily a music website. So I posted a bunch of stuff and then started coming up with new features, new ideas for lists etc. and I started to explore the blogosphere.

I do realize that if someone clicks "review" label they will see a mess of epic proportions - there are so many styles there, from comic book to illustration. But I love changing stuff around here and I probably spend 70% of time working on the blog on adding effects and editing the images. But "working" is a wrong term - I really love it.

There were so many different headers over the year on the blog, here are some of them:

I'd like to thank everyone who visited the blog - whether you ended up here by searching "jean dujardin sex scene" or "idris elba naked" (which is interesting because not once did I post such picture, in fact if such picture exist, please, send me an e-mail) or you clicked the link on imdb, tumblr, twitter, facebook or any other site that led you here. Whether you are here for the articles, reviews or just pretty pictures - it's all appreciated.

I especially want to thank follow bloggers who visit the site regularly and run some of my favorite blogs out there - Alex Withrow, m. brown, Diana, Nikhat, Sofia, ruth, Ruth Elizabeth, Fogs, Dan, Sam, Alex Thomas, Stevee Taylor, Andina, Josh, Lesya, Vern, Andy Buckle, Nick, Scott, Amy, Steven, Eric, Chip, Mettel Ray, Chris, Stephanie, Jaina, Mark, Pete, Wilde.Dash, lightscamerareaction, asrap.virtuoso, Dave, iluvcinema, Mette, Cherokee, Courtney and Tippi, M. Hufstader, Max and probably many more people I'm forgetting now because of my crappy memory.

For all of your continuous support - thank you, so very, very much!

  3. Happy anniversary!! Before this week, I didn't realise that your blog was younger than mine. That's probably because you write like a pro!

    The most amusing keyword people search for my blog is probably "Feet". Its always [insert actress name]+feet. Didn't know there was so many people with feet fetish. Then again it could just be Quentin Tarantino.

    Anyway, here's to many more years to go!

    1. Thank you so much! I was writing for a long time before I set up this blog, that's why I had so many reviews to publish at the beginning :)

      Haha, that's probably him! I'm often horified when I look at the keywords that people search for.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And wow, that's an impressive post count for one year, I am reaching 400 myself and I'm almost three years old (talking about my blog like it's me, hah)!
    Many awesome things for next year and many years to come!

    1. Thank you! I just added a lot of previously written stuff so that people had something to read and the review database was bigger :) Nowadays I post maybe 4-5 times a week.

    1. Thanks! I'm changing the style of reviews a little yet again, planning to start with Looper review tomorrow :)

  18. Well, first...congrats on kicking ass for a full year. Your blog is inspiring not only its design, but some of your content is truly fucking epic. Your attention to detail is incredible. My posts take me hours and I'm just writing boobs and boner over and over. I can only imagine how long you work on some of these. It's very impressive.

    And second...screw you! In just a year you have eleventy-billion more posts and views than me! Oh, right. It's cause your blog rules. What. Ever.

    Seriously, congrats. (and thanks for the shout out!!)

    1. Thank you! It's one of the few things I do I actually enjoy so it's not that hard. The frustrating thing is when I keep writing and writing and I feel I'm never going to stop, like with my Looper review which i'll hopefully finish for tomorrow.

      Haha, oh come on! None of my reviews are as funny as yours! People should be reading your blog every day - it just amazes me you have so few comments, that's why I vow to comment under every post of yours! :)

  21. Happy birthday, Cinematic Corner! Hope the blog runs long way and more success in the future. This blog is one of my favorites, the beautiful images is one of the best thing in it. I can't imagine how long you must retouch them. I know it took a lot of dedication to made them per post. So, great job!

    Thanks for the shout out, I feel privileged to have you come regularly to my blog. I love the second from top header. I remember my first year of blogging I kept changing my header too ahah. Nice to see you work so much to it.

    Going to check out your favorite posts!

    1. Thanks! I love editing photos, finding meaningful screenshots and making them slightly more pretty is one of my hobbies, I love it, probably waaaay too much than I should :)

      I love your blog, you have so many great ideas and your fashion posts are seriously inspiring!

  22. Congratulations, Sati! You really have achieved a lot in this past year, you're such a pro. Plus, October must be a month where blogging is in the air - you have your birthday, I have my birthday, and Lime Reviews and Strawberry Confessions has her birthday. Haha. Anyway, I love how you always change your headers! I used to change mine lots, too (I will be doing that again soon). Yours are super cool! So yeah, keep up the good work :)

    1. Thank you! Really? I didn't even know that, do you plan something special? You should - is it 3rd or 4th birthday? It's impressive how long you've been blogging, especially since you are so young! I'm practically old and rusty comparing to you :)

      Thank you! I usually change my headers from something with many movies in it to one specific one when I watch a movie I fall in love and I'm seeing Killer Joe soon, so there may be a change happening soon :)

    2. It'll be my third. You ain't even old and rusty! Haha.

  25. I hope this never becomes repetitive, but Cinematic Corner is one of my favorite websites. Not just blogs, but sites period. I love everything about it - its look, style, flow, tone - everything.

    I firmly believe that movie blogging has been elevated in the year since you started this site. Keep rockin' and rollin', Sati!!

  27. Happy Blogoversary! I'll second what Withrow has said -- you're one of my favorites. I just love your content and artistic ability. I hope you keep writing forever, even after you become a famous, expensive lawyer with a creative streak.

    To many more!

  30. I know I'm a thousand years late for this, but still --- Happy Blogversary!

    It's quite spectacular what you achieved in so little time - such a interesting, rad looking site with quality (and fun!) content. It really shows you love this and how much time you put into Cinematic Corner. And I think that what draws so many people, and keeps them around, engaged. Your blog is one of those sites that I visit (by actually writing the url!) every day, because it's so damn good. Even when I don't agree with you, I always enjoy and am always interested in reading your opinion. And I really mean this, Sati, amazing work.

    1. Don't worry about that! Thank you!

      I needed a hobby with this tiresome studies I have, I'm so glad I started this blog, it's so much fun even if it takes time, it never exhausts me.

      Thank you, that is so sweet! LOVE your site too, I enjoy every single post there!

  31. Congrats! I know what you mean about the search terms. Remember my Movies Where Charlize Theron Does Not Get Naked category? Well, the combination of the words "Charlize Theron" and "Naked" has given me a bunch of unexpected hits, and I expect a ton of disappointed searchers.
