Hold on a minute while we change reels... Wait a minute, you mean
it's over? Where's the climax? Where's the thematic resolution?
Where's the denouement? We're sorry, but the studios
hated the rushes and pulled the plug on our budget. You can,
however, continue reading about film-related topics by following
many of the links provided on this page.
Curious about a particular director's work? Not
sure what to rent at the video store? Enjoy reading several
contrasting opinions of the same film? This is the place for
you. Hundreds of reviews lie at your fingertips, sortable by
genre, date or director.
Don't be a silent couch potato, let's hear what you
think about all the movies, TV and other media in which you've
been so gluttonously indulging. (That last part is not an insult
- we do it too.) Whether you want to recommend a little-known
video, weigh in on the latest "event movie," or argue
the merits of auteur theory, our BBS forum welcomes you with open tripod arms.
We couch potatoes have been surfing (not an easy
task on a couch) the web to come up with this list of excellent
film-related Internet links.
We're very proud of our Film Vault, which not
only contains hundreds, going on thousands, of film reviews -
it also allows for cross-referencing by director, genre, publication
or date, and it provides links to related films at the bottom
of each review. Film lovers have been known to spend hours browsing
their way from succinct review to succinct review in the Film
Vault. Some never come out. Ooh, scary.
