Eric D. Snider is creating Movie Reviews
180

I love being a film critic! It combines my three passions: movies, writing, and telling people what they did wrong.

But the movie-reviewing biz has changed dramatically since I started, back in the last century. Most newspapers (to the extent that they exist at all) don't have full-time critics anymore. There's no shortage of websites that run movie reviews, but there is a shortage of websites that will pay people to write them, and a surplus of people vying for those slots.  

So I've arrived at this new strategy: writing movie reviews for free at EricDSnider.com and asking readers to become patrons. 

It's simple: pledge $1 a month. You can pledge more (thanks!), but a dollar is plenty. Patreon charges your PayPal account or credit card on the 1st of each month. If it's a buck, you probably won't even notice. 

WHAT DOES YOUR PLEDGE GET YOU?

- Reviews of new movies, usually on opening weekend. It's impossible to review (or even watch) every movie that comes out, but I try to hit all the wide releases and a smattering of interesting smaller films. Everything new that I see gets at least a couple hundred words. Reviews are written using only the finest, freshest words in the English language. All punctuation marks are locally sourced.

- The EDS-ASAP service. Within an hour of seeing a new movie, I'll email participating patrons with a brief instant reaction to it. Because sometimes you can't wait for the full review; sometimes you need to know now.  

- Access to the vast Eric D. Snider archives, containing more than 3,700 movie reviews. Did you know there even were that many movies? There are!

- The peaceful assurance that comes from knowing that I am out there watching movies, often so you don't have to. 

Thank you for your support! I hope you find my reviews as useful, entertaining, and worthy of $1 a month as I intend them to be. 

Sincerely,
Eric D. Snider

P.S. Some of my reviews are republished ("syndicated," if you will) elsewhere, including at Crooked Marquee, where I'm the editor. Those outlets pay a few dollars per review, but not enough (not even close) to constitute a double dip or to replace Patreon. Reviews are paid for by you, the patrons, and are always available in their entirety at EricDSnider.com.
