I must thank my alma
mater for providing me with free web space. At
least I got something out of those 4 years. To all
you highschoolers and their parents, I highly recommend
this institution -- if you've got $150,000 to
blow. Anyway, their student
web has been highly touted, so check it out.
Here are links to good movie websites:
IMDb database: if you haven't visited this
site, you're missing out on an invaluable resource.
Just about any kind of information you could want on a movie is
full of good articles on filmmaking.
Writers Guild of America
Rosenbaum: a true critic's critic.
Incredibly insightful -- if you can find a more
thoughtful film reviewer active today (Pauline Kael is
retired) please make it known to me.
Ebert: not as
perceptive of a writer as in his heyday (10-20 years
ago) but still fun to read. The site to his TV
show features streaming audio of his reviews and top
10 lists for him and his late pal Gene Siskel.
Comment: superb monthly with one major article on
line for each issue. Based in the city where I
- I've been impressed with the level of thought and
writing in their film reviews. Could it be that
online media is smarter than print media?
excellent source of analytical essays on art and pop
Home of the feisty David Poland, and the most practical
movie rating system I've seen: from $7.50 (full
price ticket) to $1 (wait for cable).
home of the American Society of Cinematography and
American Cinematographer magazine -- great
articles on shooting and lighting feature films, with
stills of productions.
- online movie discussion group.
Fung's Film Page -- Unbelievable. If I can get
my site to be this valuable in 4 years I'll be a happy
Ventura -- a closer level of competition... His site is older
and I envy his layout somewhat, but I'm gaining on him
fast in content (I watch twice as many movies per month)
D'Angelo -- a lot of movies, a lot of
attitude. I don't know if I would want to meet
this guy in person, but I'm sure I'm bound to
someday. Very NYC.
- other than Joel Siegel, film reviews don't get more
mainstream - or as mundane - as this.
L. Falconer Film Page -- Good job, Mark, whoever you
and Clyde: Inspired and very thoughtfully
constructed site on one of my all-time favorites.
Non-film related, but sites
that I frequent:
hands down the best (and most fun) for investment
Online: follow the A's as they dominate the AL West
