A Brief Blog Profile: Film School Rejects

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

Film School Rejects is a movie blog full of 'reviews, interviews and industry news coverage.' Actually, it's more than that. The site also shows trailers and shorts. They also write features about movies and the business of making them. They even blog about TV.  Founded in 2006 by Neil Miller, the site now boasts over 2 million unique monthly readers in over 70 countries and a large team of editors and writers keeping those visitors up to speed on all things film.

And I can understand why so many people come to this site. Film School Rejects is a lot of fun. For instance, they have a weekly feature on suggested movie-themed drinking games. There's even one for Charlie Brown's Christmas! Don't worry. They've also outlined games for Cars 2, The Muppets, West Side Story and the entire Jurassic Park trilogy.

Now obviously it's not all drinking games. For instance, there's this great piece on why the Oscars still matter.  But to me, the silly features described above show a sense of humor, not to mention voice. It also reminds me that any blog that deals with a specific subject like movies should ideally be borne out of someone's love for it. Any blog that took itself too serious would quickly lose my attention. A little bit of lightheartedness, on the other hand, is something I can accept.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
