A Brief Blog Profile: Filmsy

by Thomas Hynes


The movie blog Filmsy has the voice of a lot of film lovers. They love the art form, but are consistently frustrated with the output. In their own words, 'the movie industry spends millions of dollars on films, but sadly most aren’t even worth the price of cinema popcorn.'  To me that's an indictment of, yes,  the price of popcorn, but also and more importantly the state of film. Pictures of poor quality should be called out. Conversely, quality examples ought to be exalted.

That seems to be a central tenet to Filmsy. The site review and comment on both new movies as well as the classics. And they do so with "honest to goodness commentary." There's also a sense of humor to the blog. Take for example this post on seven movie nannies who should have never been hired. I personally haven't seen all of these films. But I'm glad I'm not the only one who is a little bugged out by Mary Poppins. There's also this post on the most fascinating sci-fi movie guns. I don't even like sci-fi or guns all that much, and I still find that post entertaining.

And I think I find this site entertaining because I can sense how much they love movies. I can sense their excitement in this post about movies that are sure to blow up in 2012. Even if the movies are sometimes poor, these folks are still going to line up for tickets. Popcorn probably, too.

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.
