To quote the artist formerly known as Mary Poppins in the The Sound of Music, these are a few of my favourite things............
www.jamescarrollreviews.co.uk - A like minded soul who throws around 5 stars like every film is on the Empire magazine cover, perhaps not as productive as old due to his Jack Black, School of Rock dual life existence, but none-the-less a voice I will always listen to, digest, and dismiss.
www.close-upfilm.com - The site that proved to be my Ark, Temple of Doom (?1?), and Holy Grail, in that it provided the gateway into screenings, screeners, and published online work. Tim Westwood style big ups must go to Jean Lynch and the omnipresent Carol Allen for their willingness to let a bored geek channel his comma ridden sentences into some creative writing.
The Epoch Times - The chance to get something in print was mainly thanks to a combination of the man who owns the first site on this list and the entertainment editor, Sir John Smithies. The site carries some serious worldwide news coverage and a little drop down called "Movies & TV", and that's where you'll find my smudge.
Comingsoon.net - A site that demanded addiction whilst doing my really meaningful and ultimately useless Film Studies Degree at Winchester Uni. The domain that got me obsessed with checking box-office statistics on a Sunday night. The Weekend Warrior is a must, and the multiple reviews are written for the everyman.
Empire Magazine - Something of bible ever since the day I purchased the magazine with a free trailers VHS (back when they weren't readily available and spoiler ridden), before it began to become the written version of Jonathan Ross' film tenure, ie. They pander to whomever graces the cover regardless of the quality of film, and as such have lost their crown as my toilet side reading to......
Total Film Magazine - Perhaps the reviews aren't as indepth and carry an air of "the common touch", but thats how Mainstream likes it. The website has recently been refurbed and offers a simple forum on which to natter about movies and some sneaky free screenings should you get refused by the Studio PR (this happens often).
