A Celebration of 400 Reviews

About seven months after our 300th review went up, we've reached the 400 mark. In some ways, I honestly didn't expect to do this much when starting this blog, but now that we've come this far, it feels amazing. We may not have very many people reading this for now, but at this point our dedication to task comes from the enjoyment of doing it, and as long as we like making these reviews, we will keep writing and posting them. Now that we've got a sort of stable schedule, I think the future is pretty assured, at least for now.

Personally, I think this is the point at which my style has truly come together. Whenever I look back at my older reviews, I perceive them as being authored by another hand, one which lacked experience. Even when I write something now I still think I have room for improvement, but at the same time I know that I'm really getting it and I know much better about how to review something, as well as lay out a post. It's interesting to see everyone, especially me and Tetris_King, improve with each new review, as well as how jarring it is to look at the older material. Right now is our best set of 100 so far, but I think each new 100 will continue to be better, even if we have some ups and downs along the way.

Below this paragraph, you will find a link to each review we've done up until this point (minus editorials, Comic-Con posts, the April Fools Day reviews and that one time Deadpool dropped by), in addition to a link to our previous celebration of 300 reviews. For the sake of easier reading, these links are broken up into chunks of 25 and each number will be color-coded like so: Movie, Video Game, Comic Book and DLC (Comic Book reviews are still marked as such to avoid confusion).
