Every year, I like to hold a month of reader requested film reviews. I always have a blast expanding my horizons and taking on movies that I might have never covered on my own.
I generally hold these events in March or April but decided to move up to January 2018 this time around. Six months will give me plenty of time to track down obscure or foreign fare, if necessary, and get a head start on research.
Here’s what you do:
First, leave a comment listing the film or films you would like me to cover. Famous or forgotten, Hollywood or foreign, silent era or modern, as long as it’s a silent film, I will give it serious consideration. Feel free to second someone else’s requests too.
Second… there is no second! That’s it! Thank you so much for your contribution! The comments are open for 90 days and at the end of them, I will make my selections (usually 4-5 films) from the contributions.
Even if I do not select one of your requests, I read these comments carefully and pay attention to trends. It sounds like marketing speak but your feedback is very important and I take this seriously. Generally speaking I try to create a selection that balances multiple decades, genres and levels of fame.
Here is my alphabetical index of movie reviews, if you want to see if your film or films of choice have already been reviewed. And here are links to my past Reader Request months, if you want to see the sort of things I have chosen in the past:
Thanks again, I look forward to reading your requests!
