CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.


REVIEWS PUBLISHED WHEN?
We depend on the kindness of studios for advance screenings of new movies in order to review them on their opening day. When we’re invited to an advance screening by a studio, we have the review early on Friday morning, which is usually the day a movie is released — the review is first published on our ad-free premium site and subsequently on our ad supported site. When there is no advance screening for a movie a reviewer rushes to the earliest public screening and we publish the review as soon as it is possible.
