If you want to write movie reviews for a local newspaper how would you obtain such a job?
My advice would be to write a few reviews yourself, call and make an appointment with the person in charge of that department hopefully you impressed them with your reviews...Good Luck
I would recommend posting some reviews on a site like Movie-Blogger.com or Rotten Tomatoes or another site that allows you to post movie reviews and blogs so you can develop your skills, get your work out there and get feedback from fellow reviewers, this way you will gain experience and have a nice resume of work to show any potential employers. This will also show to them that this is something you love not just something you need to pay the bills.
Well that would depend on what Amazing Spiderman one was looking for. If it was the movie version starring Andrew Garfield the website Rotten Tomatoes is devoted to movie reviews. Newspapers also review most mainstream websites so either one's local newspaper or major newspapers such as the New York Times would have old reviews on their websites. If one would like a review of the video game the gaming website IGN has a through review.
You may watch movies for free through YouTube, however the quality could be poor and the amount of parts in which it is broken down could be massive. Look in the local newspaper for free movie nights at the local movie theater or for outdoor movie showings at parks. Another option would be to be on the lookout for movie stores that are closing and are getting rid of movies because you could find some…
By mince I mean make the insults more colourful, in a polite way. By mince you mean "make them more entertaining"? Watch a couple of movie reviews on Youtube, at channels such as Fury of the Film Fan, Manny The Movie Guy, Spill.com (you can also visit that sight for uncensored audio reviews), Mr. Black's Movie Reviews, GroundedForLife27 and many many others. Just don't watch Vaughn Fry's reviews.
