It’s no secret that we love movies. For the last 8 years, we have shared our year-end Top 10 best and worst lists with our friends and family. And every year, we get the same question from them: “why don’t you guys have a movie review blog?” We do now!
On this site, you’ll find our mini reviews of every single movie we see during the calendar year, starting in January 2016. Most of the early reviews we will post are from the 2016 Sundance Film Festival (which we attend every year). We have devised a simple star rating system: one-half star is the worst rating, and five stars is the best.
These are not full-length reviews; we both have day jobs and simply don’t have time to write full articles for every movie. We see movies on our own time and on our own dime.
If you follow us as a regular reader, you’ll find a few surprises sprinkled in here and there. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Google+ and Pinterest. The best way to keep up to date with our reviews (besides checking out this site every day) is to sign up for our monthly review e-newsletter.
We’ve also archived all of our Top 10 lists back to 2009 so you can take a look at the movies that we loved and hated over the years.
Oh, and about the name: we are huge movie fans and movies really are like our religion. Screen Zealots seemed like the perfect fit since we truly are “Fanatical About Film” (our official tag line).
Thanks so much for reading, and welcome!
