Rick's Café Texan will be primarily a film review site. There are certain goals this site would like to accomplish:
- Watch every Best Picture Academy Award winner and as many nominees that are available to give our own impressions.
- Retrospectives on film series such as Harry Potter, Star Trek, and James Bond.
Now, Rick's Café Texan will also review every Doctor Who story available. Yes, I am aware that Doctor Who is a TELEVISION program, but I do this out of my own pleasure.
I also will on occasion write on film-related issues, such as tributes to those who've passed on or are celebrating a birthday or private thoughts on current events in film. From time to time, I will also address general issues on the culture.
However, the primary goal of Rick's Café Texan will be to give views on films both current and past. I believe there should be a wide perspective when it comes to film. I don't see movies as something "grand" or "elevated". Not every film should be a Bergman or Fellini film. However, the current obsession with the Twilight series...excuse me, SAGA, to me signals The End of Western Civilization.
