Hello, I’m Tiago Ricardo, I’m an Engineering student at IST in Lisbon and I’m a huge fan of movies and cinema. I am an enthusiast of Romance and Horror and I enjoy a lot the way movies make me feel. From Romances to Thrillers, for me, there’s nothing like a movie to make you feel good, scared, intrigued or in love in a “short” period of time. I’ve never noticed my opinion could be useful to people to help them picking the movies they should see. Thankfully for me and perhaps for you, after trying to write small reviews for IMDb I started enjoying it, perhaps because I always enjoyed writing, so I’ve decided to create something that was completely mine to publish my opinions.
Panda’s Choice was created on the 23rd of November and it has been online ever since. It’s a project designed for those who look for an opinion regarding a movie and for those who are just simply curious to know something about the movie’s plot. It’s another movie blog in the middle of the large community of worldwide movie blogs that tries to be different with a friendlier design and complete analysis of movies. In the first months of the project, the reviews and its content were completely written in Portuguese but I noticed that it was more interesting to be a Portuguese movie blogger that shares his opinions with the rest of the world so I’ve decided to change the language to English.
A large number of reviews are still available in Portuguese (with a Google English translation included) and I’m trying to update them but so far, it has been a really difficult mission to accomplish since I watch several movies per week. The project also features a series of special sections in which I publish my opinion regarding other things in the world of cinema but of them all, the one I enjoy to write the most is Must because it allows me to explore contents about movies everyone should really see. Writing reviews is a challenging work but I do it with pleasure and dedication, mostly because I’m a huge fan of cinema. When the project was created it was impossible for me to imagine the great things that were about to happen is less than a year. From covering Portuguese film festivals to participate in press conferences, this project allowed me to explore another side of the world of cinema I was unfamiliar with.
I’ve met really nice people that like me, enjoyed to write their thoughts on movies, series and articles about Television and because of that I’ve learn a lot over the last months. In the beginning of the month, I’ve started collaborating with the Portuguese website Quinto-Canal (feel free to visit my section by clicking here and my reviews are available here) in which I publish articles and news about cinema and also movie reviews (everything in Portuguese). This collaboration was my way to reach more Portuguese readers and I must say that for the support the team has given to me I must thank them for everything.
With more reviews and new sections, Panda’s Choice will remain online to help you pick the right movie according with your tastes and to help you discover interesting movies you’ve never heard of.
Thank you for following and for visiting Panda’s Choice!
