The Awesomest Group Since The Legion Of Doom

I don't have high expectations of this snowballing into something cool, but I'll try it anyways.

There are oodles of movie reviewers, professional and otherwise, in print, online, by the water cooler, everywhere.

Still, I really dig my Two Buck Schmuck movie reviews, and haven't really read anything quite like them. I'm attached to a particular second-run movie theater, and in my reviews I often try to give a sense of time and place outside just the movie-watching experience.

I inhabit the strange limbo between first-run moviehouses and DVDs. It's a place I really enjoy.

I sure as hell am not the only person who goes to see cheap movies. And I'm probably not the only who has an opinion about these cheap movies.

So, I am creating a group. It will be international in scope. In fact, I am calling it the International Federation of Second-Run Movie Critics (IFSRMC).

If you want to be a member, let me know. I'd be happy to have you on the team!

A logo for this group is forthcoming.

I love it! I'm such a movie dork... I would totally join your team, except that I am a terrible writer. :( ?

That question mark is a typo.

I'd love to join...I've just received an armload of VHS tapes and $1 DVD's I'd be happy to review. My angle could be "Too cheap for cable" reviews.

Our second run theater here in town closed for temporary upgrades last summer and has been closed ever since. I never thought anyone would be lucky to have a second run theater, but here we are...

How many of them include midgets?
