Great Resources for Movie Lovers

Are you a movie lover like I am? Well, there are some top resources that you can’t afford to be missing out on.


The Hollywood Reporter

The world has changed a lot since the Golden Age of Hollywood in the 1940s and 1950s. But, like it or not, Hollywood remains the global centre for film production. Things have diversified a lot, and there is now more space for independent films. But Hollywood still holds lots of power, and they make a lot of films. And if you want to stay informed about the latest developments at the Hollywood studios, you need to make use of the Hollywood Reporter website. As far as Hollywood coverage is concerned, it’s the best website out there.


Netflix

Every movie lover should really have a subscription to Netflix. There are so many different movies to explore on there. And the choice is so varied. It’s not all about mainstream Hollywood films. They also offer the best independent films. There are also lots of foreign language films from all over the world. But, if you ask me, the best thing that Netflix offers is the documentaries. They put a huge focus on documentary films, and that’s very important. They tend to be neglected by a lot of film lovers, but there are some really interesting ones on Netflix.

Observations on Film Art

This is the perfect website for anyone who wants to get a more serious and analytic look at films. The website discusses films, old and new, in a very in-depth kind of way. As the name of the blog suggests, it treats film as a valid art form. It’s run by the respected critics and academics, Kristen Thompson and David Bordwell. They’ve both published many books on film, and they certainly know what they’re talking about. So, if you want to read about film from a new perspective, head over there now.

Viral Websites

Viral websites sometimes get a bad name. But there’s a reason why they're so popular: they offer the kind of content that’s fun to read and enjoy in small bites! That’s often what people want from movie coverage. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t read longer articles. But I recently read a very interesting article on the Nigerian film industry on a viral site, follow the link to view original source. This goes to show that there is often lots of really interesting posts and articles on viral websites.

The Top Magazines

There are lots of really interesting film magazines that still exist in the world of print media. It’s important not to forget about these, even though it seems like our whole lives exist online nowadays. There are great magazines like Film Comment, Little White Lies and Cineaste. They all take a slightly different approach, so explore them all and see which you like most. And these magazines usually don’t make their best content available online, or they get posted online a month or so later. So, consider a print subscription!
