About Me

My name is William Hume and I want to become a Film and Video Games Journalist.

Established in March 2012, I was encouraged by my brother to write a review for The Hunger Games and I have written steadily ever since. As time goes on I fill in with other content analysis features like What Do You Think?, Best Scenes, The Six, and a few deeper Case Studies. I have broadened my reviews to also include special events and television. As I pursued my Communications degree, I occasionally completed projects that intersected with my hobby and topics on this website. Most of these special analysis written from school are included under the Case Studies section.

Goal:

My intention is to turn FilmGamer into a sort of media enterprise. This site has connection to a Facebook Page and partially integrates with a YouTube channel. In 2016, I purchased the domain officially and started accepting contributions from others who review movies with altering taste on a less analytical scale. I followed it up with purchasing the native “.ca domain” as well. I’m open to partnering with other writers and workplace opportunities. At the very least, this site will serve as a historical record and point of view of the media in the early twenty-first century.

My Style of Review:

My critique often alternates. I always try and add fresh commentary that hasn’t been repeated by every other critic ad nauseum. Incorporating my Communications skills and passion for writing I usually try to stack my reviews in favour of objective viewpoints with partiality to Intersectional Feminist views. This is consistent with my university education. Although complete objectivity is a fallacy I try not to let political views bog down my enjoyment of a movie. I will not give a movie like Death Wish a bad review for its politics or timing or begin a review declaring why ‘Person A’ should be cancelled. People come to read my point of view so when it comes down to it if I can explain how a movie or piece of media affected me it is worth writing down.
