The material on this web site is chiefly written by Erik Weems. The written reviews and commentary is meant to describe that the typical film is actually a bit better than what movie critics will allow (after all, the role of the movie critic tends to straitjacket the mind to steer toward denunciation and not praise); on the other hand, many highly-praised films that delight the film critics aren't quite as worthy as they are said to be (have you ever decided to watch a film that is coated in plaudits, only later to wonder why it was?) Our issue of enjoying film (and why are we watching them) seems to dwell somewhere in the middle of the movie critical divide.
