Most viewed reviews of 2016

Writing these blogs is a weird and wonderful endeavour. Some of my most treasured works will get such a small amount of traffic it can be extremely disheartening. Other times, I get a silly amount of traffic for a review and I will never understand where the differences are made.

Here are the top ten most accessed review pages for this last year.

A Bigger Splash

So what does this tell me? Clearly films that are mainstream do less well, whilst the ones listed above are all certainly out of the mainstream and I guess more likely to appear sooner on popular search engines.

Interestingly, three of the films are for the Asian continent, with the majority of views arriving from the country the film was made in. I guess I can say that I was big in Japan this year.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support!
