About CinemAlone

Me in Madrid

Hello you 🙂

Yes, you! Thank you for visiting this movie blog of mine. It has been a very long time since I last posted any reviews here and I am sorry for that. I just got a notification from my wordpress account that this blog has a booming stat and I was like, “What are you kidding me? This blog has been abandoned for ages…”

Okay, that was exaggerating.

So I decided to revise this “about” page, just in case you come back here and visit this blog, at least you will find something new to read about, hahahaha… If you are one of my old readers, then you must know the roots for this movie blog name. But if you’re new, then I guess I have to explain it again.

“CinemAlone” derived from the words “cinema” and “alone”. I was inspired by one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies, “Home Alone”, thus I named this blog in a similar tone. Why CinemAlone? Well, I used to go to the movies alone. Actually I still do until now, but I rarely go alone compared to three to five years ago. There is an indescribable satisfaction of watching movies alone at the cinema. I can just express my emotions without being afraid my movie-going friend complaining about how loud I am screaming at a horror scene. Or how hard I hit him or her in the hand when I feel tense watching a protagonist being chased by some psychopathic (who is surprisingly handsome) guy on screen. And I’m not kidding. That’s how I typically react when watching a horror movie. And when I’m watching a rom-com, I will often say “aawww” or “ooohh”, making others nearby uncomfortable and creating instant public humiliation to whoever accompanying me at the cinema. Hahahaha. That is why I’m much more comfortable watching movies alone.

In my old posts you may notice that I wrote reviews in Bahasa Indonesia, my native language. Now I decided to write reviews in English to provide a wider readability to non-Bahasa blog visitors. I take it as an exercise to my English writing skills and also it’s always nice to see more visitors from all around the world visiting and leaving comments in this blog. It will encourage me to keep writing 🙂

I guess this is it for now.. Thank you for visiting this blog and your comments are highly anticipated. If you’re a movie blogger, too, kindly leave your links here in the comment section. I’ll blogwalk to yours. Ciao! 🙂

    wah, gw juga sering nonton sendiri, soalnya jarang temen gw yang selera-nya sama, jadi klo nonton film-nya pasti cocok-nggak-cocok…


    “Daripada mereka makin pusing, ya mendingan gue nonton sendiri, kelar nonton ya ngoceh-ngoceh sendiri hahaha~”

    Bwahahaha, ini juga sama ni kaya gw, bingung mau ngungkapin ke siapa yak, kebanyakan beda hobinya n nggak ngerti apa yg w omongin, jadi ya dipendem sendiri deh tu ocehan selepas nonton… wkwkwk…

    Senasib nih kita dalam hal nonton film, makanya gue namain blog ini CinemAlone hahaha~ yah, gimana lagi kalo udah soal nonton film tuh udah jadi hobi, termasuk ngoceh2 abis nonton hehehe.. temen2 gue pada sukanya nonton rom-com aja sih, jadi ya ga bisa diajak nonton bareng sering2.. udah gitu mereka lebih milih beli baju dan nyalon daripada nonton, jadi ya susah banget diajakin hahaha~
