The Movie Binge

General Thoughts

Yeah, We Gave Up

I decided fading away would be easier than explaining that we couldn't bear to see another horrid film, but I realize it's only fair to give you a proper heads up.

We've decided to close up shop. Seeing every single movie was just too much to do on a regular basis. Does that mean we're done forever? Possibly, but don't rule out next summer. It all depends on how many fellas we can round up to do reviews. Essentially, if you want to guarantee we'll be back nex year, you should join the crew.

The Movie Binge II

Yep, we're coming back for another summer. The fall just didn't feel right. While we're gearing up behind the scenes, I thought I'd check in with the folks who are still checking our feed or popping by (hello!). Before we get going, I wanted to tickle your brain.

What did you like/dislike about last summer's Binge? Are reviews enough? Was the site easy to use? Should I shave my chest hair into a caricature of Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker? These are all questions that, when answered, could change the world site.

You can leave a comment or drop an email. Either way, thanks. Oh, and don't forget to get out this weekend and see the biggest blockbuster to come out this year, Jamie Kennedy's Kickin' It Old School. I heard it cost $500 million to make.

Let the Binge Begin!

Our first film (The Boss of it All) came out yesterday, which means the fun has officially begun. Unless you're reading this via our feed, you've noticed that all of this summer's films are up on the site. We'll updating data throughout the coming months, but we have a crapload of links there to make your movie-going a little more manageable.

More importantly, if you haven't visited the site yet, you're missing out on our most entertaining feature (no, not the reviews silly) — the rotating subheadlines for "The Movie Binge 2"!!! We've got about 10 rotating now, with another 20 or so I'll be adding tonight. If you have your own you'd like to add, leave them in the comments.

Finally, you'll notice we dropped the psuedonyms and added a whole bunch of new writers (sadly, we lost a couple). Be sure to check out the about page for more details, but our new writers are Kyria Abrahams, Dan Beirne, Erik Bryan, Lia Bulaong, Bryan Charles and Meghan Deans. Todd Serencha is kind of new too, as he came in during our ill-fated Fall 2006 stint. Together, we write six or seven million blogs, give or take.

And now I shall shut up and let the reviews roll in. You can expect the first one to arrive on Monday.
