Welcome to Critic Speak

Hello, and welcome to CriticSpeak.com.

Today’s Internet is so stuffed with film blogs that it was nearly impossible for us to come up with a name that hadn’t been taken — seemingly every clever domain involving the words film, movie, screen, and media was already in operation.

But for as many film blogs as there are, the vast majority seem to provide the exact same information, which is all too frequently dominated by regurgitated press releases from studio publicists. While the landscape is crowded, it is hardly diverse.

This is where we seek to stand out from the pack. While we will post our fair share of news stories, home video release round-ups, and box office predictions, we hope to add our unique perspective to every story — to offer original content that keeps you coming back.

We have landed a team of contributors with extensive experience in film blogging — particularly in reviews, which will be the mainstay of this site. We look forward to unveiling their work in the coming months.

If you are a fan of TV or the cultures of new media in general, we will have plenty of content that appeals to you as well. In addition to reviews and news, expect an array of opinion columns that will bring light to issues and works of import to our readers.

If you’re looking for a richer, more insightful spin on the traditional film blog, we hope that you will bookmark CriticSpeak.com and visit us daily from now on.
