I watch quite a lot of movies, in theatres and on TV/DVD. Movies are often the subject of smalltalk in the office on Mondays, so one has to prepare. Recently I tried writing reviews and opinions – just for fun – for my friends and colleagues, and since I got very good feedback I decided to start this blog. I am not a professional movie critic. My reviews or opinions may not have all the facts or names straight. They are my own opinions. You are welcome to post comments.

Send me your movie and I will review it!

    Maxim – Hopefully you get this – I was wondering if you’d like to review our film ahead of its upcoming world premiere. The movie is a raw, low-budget suspense thriller called Shooting April. It’s premiering on August 30th in downtown Los Angeles.

    If you’re interested, I could get you a copy by the weekend (in the hopes, obviously, that the review would be published before the premiere, preferably sometime early next week).

    You can check out the trailer on our Facebook page to see if it’s something that interests you.

    Tod Lancaster
    Producer, Shooting April
