About The Movie Binge
The Binge is back! Once again the Movie Binge team will watch every major movie released between Memorial Day and Labor Day. That's 89 films. We realize that's a lot, but if it weren't a little crazy, then what would be the point, right?
In regards to rules, we don't really have any. Whether we pay for the film and sit in the theater like your average joe or buy a bootleg copy off the street and watch it with the cast of Cirque de Soleil, all that matters is that we see the movie.
Each week we'll keep you up to date with reviews of every movie, previews and entertaining facts along the way. So even if you're bored with our reviews, at least you'll have our weekly previews and complete list of summer films.
All contact of any sort should go through . If you work for a movie studio or PR firm, we're happy to go to screenings so our readers can read the reviews before the films are released. Just hit us up on the e-mail.

Matthew Perpetua (aka Matthew Fluxington) - Editor

Mr. Perpetua regularly updates the music blogs Fluxblog and Pop Songs 07 in addition to writing weekly columns for the Associated Press and MTV's Urge download service. He lives in Astoria, Queens.
Kyria Abrahams - Writer
Kyria Abrahams is currently putting the finishing touches on her book I'm Perfect, You're Doomed, a comedic memoir involving Jehovah's Witnesses, slam poetry, OCD and the fiery destruction of the wicked at Armageddon. It will be published by Touchstone-Fireside in 2008. For two years, Kyria was a regular columnist for Jest Magazine where she wrote rambling, otherwise unpublishable essays about eskimos. She used to perform standup throughout New York at popular shows like Eating It and Invite them Up, as well as literary readings like How to Kick People but now she is lazy. The latest unpublishable first-person eskimo-esque essays can be found cluttering this blog: sateenduraluxe.livejournal.com
