Seasoned Film Critics Collaborate to Launch New Movie Review Site Cinephiled
SEATTLE, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After a stealth launch in October, the brand-new film and pop-culture site Cinephiled.com formally announces its mixture of commentary, community, creativity and conversation for people who love film and pop culture. Cinephiled features a staff of writers who have previously contributed to publications as diverse and distinguished as The Village Voice, RogerEbert.com, Film Comment, Salon, L.A. Weekly, The New York Times, The Guardian UK, Premiere, MSN Movies and many more.
Cinephiled is the brainchild of Noah Walden, a former editor at MSN Movies, and Michael Taus, a founder of several tech companies including Rent.com -- and is a collaborative effort with some of the industry's leading critical opinion makers, critics and interviewers. Walden and more than a dozen writers with extensive experience at top-ranked film portal MSN Movies have reformed with a mission to deliver unique voices and unrestrained opinions to movie lovers everywhere.
"Movies are changing -- how we watch them, and how they're made -- but the real constant of movies may be how much we love talking about them after the end credits, whether at home or in the always-impressive majesty of the shared darkness of any movie theater."
-- James Rocchi, Broadcast Film Critics Association
Cinephiled's staff includes such noted reviewers as James Rocchi, Glenn Kenny, Kathleen Murphy, Sean Axmaker, Jim Emerson, Kim Morgan and Richard T. Jameson. Genre film experts Don Kaye, Jeff Vice, David Walker and Kurt Geltz provide in-depth writing about science fiction, horror and fantasy. Engaging interviewers including Bryan Reesman and Danny Miller chat with filmmakers and actors at the top of their craft -- and with those just getting started. And pop-culture authorities such as Martha Brokenbrough, Gwen Elliot, Myriam Gabriel-Pollock, Frank Paiva and Geoff Kirsch weigh in with commentary, analysis and humor.
"I know there are a lot of people out there whose reflexive reaction to this announcement will be, 'Another movie website, just what the world needs.' Actually, I think a website like Cinephiled IS something the world needs: a variety of fluent writers who are passionate about movies and communicate that passion in an intelligent, accessible, non-dogmatic way."
-- Glenn Kenny, former editor of Premiere and lead critic for MSN Movies
