Welcome to the official Patreon page of Gorgon Reviews (gorgonreviews.com), the best Greek Mythology Titled Movie Review page on the Internet.

I created Gorgon Reviews in October of 2011 and have created over 1500 reviews in that time. Right now we have five reviews a week, all for free, all for current movies in theaters or new to DVD. My reviews are informative, humorous, occasionally ranty, and just fucking amazing.

Why am I looking to use Patreon? Well, I have been reviewing films for 4 and a half years at this point, all on my own dime. I have bought many movie tickets and spent many hours laboring on my writing, perfecting my craft, and watching almost everything I can get my hands on. 

But I was also a Geophysicist. And well, the Oil and Gas industry not only crashed hard, but it is going to be a long time until it recovers. Despite getting laid off almost six months ago, I have tried a few different career avenues and the search has not been going well. Now with unemployment about to run out and our savings dwindling, I am running out of options, with a wife and three kids to support. 

So I have turned to Patreon to offer my website, some swag, and some extra services. After all, this is really my dream job, so if I could make it work I will give it a shot. 

My website will still produce five wonderful reviews a week (or more if goals get reached), all for free, all with the same humor and insight. But here are a few extra things to get your lips wet and appetites started. 


Pledge Level Gifts: (All levels include what is listed PLUS what comes with previous levels)
Level 1: $1
My personal love and thanks, which can be used for credit at every Pizza Planet restaurant in America. 

Level 2: $5
Exclusive access to the fan page on my website. At the first tier, you will be able to suggest films for me to review with a bit more gusto than a normal reader. You will be able to vote in online polls for when I am unsure of what I want to watch and help determine the direction of my website. 

Level 3: $10
The first pledge level that includes a physical gift is the $10 level. We appreciate your support and will send you a weatherproof car decal/sticker as a thank you (and a note that is very wordy and unique to you as a thank you)!

This sticker is exclusive to all new supporters for 2016 (and yes, we'll send a new one to you in 2017 if you're still a patron then!) and is not available anywhere else. It was designed by my awesome wife  & produced by her company just for this occasion!

It is a little over 3" in diameter and perfect for your car, or your laptop, or your whatever. I'm not going to tell you how to live your life!



Level 4: $15
This is the first big level of the fan club! You will have access to my Movie Cheat Sheets. They will only be made for the 1-2 big releases every week (that I see) and they will be your GO TO GUIDE to get the quick and dirty facts about the film. A very quick plot summary, the biggest actors, 2-4 notable parts (can be good or bad), and important spoilers. Don't worry, the spoilers will be at the bottom.

This way you don't have to see the movie in question, but you can definitely still talk about it with your friends and coworkers as if you did! I mean, who wants to spend all that money on food and tickets every week, just to stay hip? With these Movie Cheat Sheets, you can now just spend $15 a month and spend your time at home watching whatever the crap you want!


Level 5: $20
At this point, I risk all of my privacy and will give you my personal cell phone number. You can technically talk to me about whatever, but the point of it is to ask me movie questions when you need an answer. If I am not at work (if I get another job), in a movie (which is also work), or asleep, I will respond to you as soon as I can. 
You might want to know if certain films are good for certain aged kids. If there is a scene at the end of the credits. If you should get X or Y at Red box. Or if a movie has a character die. Or if a movie has a character naked. No question is too ridiculous, and I can help you out on a pinch. 

Level 6: $30
The sixth pledge level comes with a sexy t-shirt.* Wear this wherever you go and you'll be probably the sexiest person there.^ We don't have a ton of these available though, so get this while it lasts. Unisex sizes range from Adult Small to 5XL. 


Also included in this level is the final level of fan club access. You will be able to help determine future Milestone Reviews for my website (1500-2000 word reviews with tons of pictures, jokes and more of older generally hated pieces of cinema). I only do these every 50 reviews, and they are always a treat. 

*You'll be sent an email with a survey form to collect size/shipping information after your pledge.
^Level of sexiness can vary. We are not responsible for fluctuating levels of sexiness and cannot fully guarantee our claim that you will probably be the sexiest person there.
 
Level 7: $40

Currently the highest level, giving you everything before this level and also an invite into a monthly AMA styled video chat with me and other movie lovers. We will talk about movies, answer questions, discuss that last month of film and the next month of film. And whatever the heck else you want to talk about. 

Now, what are you waiting for? You know you want in on all these sexy new goodies & content. Pick a pledge, don't worry, you can change it later on if you want!

You have my biggest thanks! The biggest thanks I can give you digitally.

At this level, you get into our into a secret club. One that I will tell here. You will get access to a special part of the website. You will get to vote in opinion polls on future movies I review. Your movie requests will be heard at a louder volume. You will become the start of something big. (Plus previous level rewards)

My wife is amazing and makes high quality stickers and dividers and things for notebooks, and she has created a wonderful sticker for your car, laptop, favorite shirt, whatever. You can put it wherever and it is exclusive to Patreon supporters. You will only get one for this level, but you will get a new design in 2017 and so on and so on. And of course, your voice for review suggestions will probably be louder. 

Also with your sticker will be a personalized thank you note from me, and if you haven't gotten a note from me before, you are seriously missing out. (Plus previous level rewards)

Remember that exclusive website access? You get the first real big benefit of that website access! I call it a Movie "Cheat Sheet." For the big releases (that I see), I will make quick guides for you to go to in order to find out about the newest releases. It will include a quick movie plot summary, include important spoilers (that will be tagged), and description of particular good or bad scenes. That way you can still talk about movies with all of the cool kids around the water cooler without having to go to the film. (Plus previous level rewards)

Movie Doctor on call! You will receive my own personal cell phone number and can access me at almost any time (outside of being asleep, work, or watching something in theaters) to ask quick movie questions. Check the main page for example questions, but literally all questions are fine. Especially if they are about movies.  (Plus previous level rewards)

Not only will you get a cool exclusive T-Shirt, seen on the main site, but you will also reach a new level of website access. You will be the cream of the crop, and you will get to provide direct input for future MILESTONE Reviews. Almost no limit will be placed on what films I will watch for a milestone, but you will be involved in finding out what I will really churn out. (Plus previous level rewards)
Pledge $40 or more per month

The final level! For being an awesome person, or an awesomer person if you are providing more for month, you will be able to participate in a monthly interactive video chat regarding new releases, old releases, or whatever you want to talk about AMA style. These will probably occur monthly, maybe on Twitch, and you and others and me can talk for an hour or two about whatever. And hey, you'd probably get to see my baby. (Plus previous level rewards)
Goals
$4 of $50 per month
A low goal to start off with, because reaching for the stars right off the bat is scary. 

What does $50 a month do for me? Well, it makes me feel less guilty about going to so many screenings! At this level, then I am at least able to pay for the gas that I waste driving to all the theaters. And pay for parking, because some theaters are rude like that. That is the major downfall of Houston and the "free" screening aspect. Sure there is a time component too, but the driving is the only real cost that can be quantified. 

So this makes me less guilty, and able to focus efforts on going to more screenings.
