My Movie Reviews

I review films for our local weekly mag. One of four reviewers, I don’t review all movies. Instead, the four of us duke it out on what movies we’ll see each weekend. Sometimes we volunteer for the good ones. It only becomes a problem when we all do NOT want to see a movie – usually something starring Martin Lawrence or Rob Schneider.

he Flag Live movie section has room for about 800 words for new films and another 400-500 for video reviews. This means if there’s only one film that opens in town that weekend it recevies the honor of having 800 words written about it, even if it stars David Spade. If we have three films we have 270 words for each; this makes for some shallow reviews.

Along with current movies, the groups of reviewers write video reviews every so often. This is where we have fun. The only rule is to write about something that has not already been reviewed by one of us. Dan, the guy in charge of the reviews, has built a lovely database for us to keep track of what’s been written about.

So, you can find links to some of my reviews on the right-hand side of my blog page. Look under the More category. I’ll update as I think about it and when I am allowed to (I can’t put them here before they are even published in Flag Live).

    You should check out a sweet movie podcast I listen to. It’s called Filmspotting (http://www.filmspotting.net). Really good conversational commentary on new and older movies. Probably the best movie podcast out there.
