Welcome to Returning Videotapes!

On Returning Videotapes you’ll find movie reviews and essays, tv shows worth watching, and the best art and books for film lovers. We’ll keep up with awards and festivals, marvel over movie frames, dream of costumes, and listen to countless hours of movie scores. This is the place where I share beautiful works and strong opinions, in hopes of inspiring you and starting awesome discussions!

Books, art and culture play their part on Returning Videotapes, too. Articles are mostly movie related, but expect the occasional book review, museum trip, illustration, and festival/movie exhibit coverage. In the footer you’ll always find the latest episode of the Across The Universe Podcast, where Getter, Nik and I discuss movies every other week. In this tight film community we also do blogathons and other web events, taking every opportunity to show just how much we love movies – so stick around and join us!

For more content, find me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, where I’m active on a daily basis. I’m also on Pinterest collecting pretty art and movie things, and on Goodreads and Letterboxd tracking all my reads and watches! To keep up with new posts you can follow this blog on Bloglovin, WordPress, or sign up via e-mail.

I’ve run my previous blog, Film Flare, for six years before changing it to Returning Videotapes, in a (hopefully) not too obscure reference to one of my favorite movies, American Psycho. It’s a fresh start for a passion project, with all the experience that comes from the past. That’s why you’ll find all my previous posts in the archives, going as far back as 2011!

January 2019: all previous posts are being formatted and indexed,
so not only some links may not work properly, but also things may look a bit… weird. For a while.

I review NC-17 movies and tv shows, as well as adult books,
so beware of violent and sexual content.
