Welcome to “Leave it to Livia”

Welcome to “Leave it to Livia”. This post will give you an overview of what to expect and my intent for the blog.

I have thought about blogging for awhile since I am an aspiring writer. The time is right. I’ve been writing for the past three years and I’ve written for two low key publications. There is always a purpose behind everything. This blog is for me to gain a wider audience. The Blogosphere is the way to share my opinion.

With the internet and whole shebang, might as well take advantage of it. I will write on this blog once a week. I will try to write more than once a week during the summer.

I will give you useful and reliable film reviews of current theatrical releases and the latest movie news – most of the time. I will give occasional DVD reviews meaning I review the film on DVD. I will give you occasional book and music reviews. I will also write my opinions on the entertainment industry. I will write about what’s going on in my life on occasion so this blog won’t feel clichéd.

I use this grading system as follows in my reviews

A, A- = great film. See it in theater.
B+, B, B- = good film. See it in theater.
C+, C, C- = average film. You make the decision to see it or not in theater. 85% of the time I hand out these grades to films in reviews.

D+, D, D- = terrible film. Don’t see it in theater.
F = a nightmare. Don't see it in theater.

The grade will be in bold at the end of each review.


  1. I like it! You know I'm all for more about movies.

  2. Looking forward to your reviews.
