About... ABOUT... ABOUT... ABOUT...
Q: What Makes You Qualified For The Position Of (Being A Film Critic)?
A: When you have the passion and drive towards films and television like I do, you have a conscious desire to try to make films appeal to others. Now the issue with movies today is that they're just so d*mn expensive; so I created this site to make the decision easier. Basically the answer is I'm not...but also I am.
Q: How Long Are Your Reviews?
A: Approximately SEVEN segments* long each, separated into individual categories for the film to be evaluated by its elements, along with it's whole being. This makes for a more dynamic and easy approach to the film review system that will help anyone thinking about seeing a Newly released movie. ESTIMATED SENTENCES TEMPLATE: Opening Segment: 1-3 | Every Body Segment: 3-6 | Closing Segment: 1-3
Q: What Is Your Favorite Movie?
A: That's a difficult question for most to answer but I have to go at it as what is the movie that I have seen tons and tons of times, able to quote nearly every line and just have a desire to put it on whenever I'm bored. That movie is "Back to the Future", I even have a tattoo of the flux capacitor on my shoulder blade to verify my love for the film.
Q: When Do You Post New Movie Reviews?
A: Every new movie review should be posted within the next week of the film's initial release. Every review is cared for and written with heart, so some may come later in the week than others. Please Note that Some reviews may factor in whther or not it be from a streaming service or viewed in cinemas.
Q: Do You Review Documentaries?
A. Only on Occasion. We typically do not review documentaries, comedy specials (TBA), or theatrically released concert films. This is only because it is incredibly difficult to give a review on these, as they are mainly factual/taken from real life and have nearly no creative categories for it to be evaluated on.
Q: What Is Your Least Favorite Movie?
A. While I don't have a definite answer for that, some do happen to come to mind...those titles mainly being poorly put together childrens films and-atrocious comedies from generally some every talented actors out there.
Q: Do All Films Get Watched In The Cinema?
Q: Can I Comment Anywhere On The Site / Is There A Forum?

A: A mass majority of the movies that are seen for the site are in cinemas, although we see movies in our free time and work steady schedules of paid work...so sometimes this may not be the case...
Occasionally some are seen "Stream On!", which just means that certain movies released in the year have garnered more interest through a streaming service than with any indie or wide theatrical release.

BEHIND THE POPCORN
Wouldn't you rather have a half empty bucket of Popcorn over a completely spilled one? But wouldn't it be even better to have a bucket of popcorn that was completely full, even spilling out over the sides from too much?
crpWrites uses this method of rating to determine whether a movie is A Must See (Full Popcorn), A Maybe (Half Empty Popcorn) or A Mistake (Spilled Popcorn).
Each of the 7 paragraphs is about a different subject of conversation about the movie determined by the subject of the Review (CGI, Dialogue, Directing, Writing, Exc.). Each paragraph has a Popcorn Rating that will be added together with all the others to create the final verdict.
