The short version:  Reviews submitted for inclusion into the Reader Reviews section should be posted to this board or emailed to Andrew.

In addition to posting links to reviews on other websites, this is the place to post your own reviews of bad movies.  Every so often (monthly), I will look through this board for a well-written review.  If I have access to the movie, I will create all the sounds/images/and video for the article.  This forum is the proving grounds, where your review will be seen by other readers and you can work out any proofreading or final touches.

Posting your review here gives me no rights or ownership, except to publish the review on the website.  However, the review is still yours.  If you later want the review removed, I will do so.

In order to assist anyone who wants to write a Badmovies.org style review, I have posted the code for a skeleton template below.  It is the basics for writing a post here that will follow the format that I use.

Code:

[color=yellow]NAME OF THE FILM
Rated: MPAA RATING
X slimes
Copyright Company and Date:
Submitted by YOUR NAME[/color]


[color=yellow]THE CHARACTERS[/color]

Justin - Just a fictional fellow.  He likes to play the piano while his boat floats down the Amazon.  Squeezed to death and eaten.


[color=yellow]LESSONS LEARNED[/color]

Fish can be used as boomerangs.
There is nothing wrong with talking to chickens.


[color=yellow]STUFF TO WATCH FOR[/color]
4 mins - Look out Mr. President!
43 mins - And just where do you think you are going?


[color=yellow]NOTABLE QUOTES[/color]

Some guy: "Yeah, I ate a chicken."
Other some guy: "The whole thing?"
Some guy: "Yeah."


[color=yellow]THE PLOT[/color]

DELETE AND WRITE YOUR PLOT HERE.

Dang, if only I could find how to post music/video clips/take screenshots I'd bring Return to Horror High onto the board!

What are you afraid of? It's only rock n' roll.

there should be a screen cap button on your dvd player (on your computer) it depends though but if it does, you just have to set a destination for the picture files( a folder on the desktop will do) and press the button when you want to capture a frame.

What if we can get the clips and screenshots ourselves? Do we send them to you to put them on the review, or is there a way to do it alone?

You can create the files if you wish.  The thing I ask is that people who do so look through how I create the files.  For images, I create 6-8 of them, with a max size of 800 by 600 pixels and the edges cropped.  For sound clips, create 4-6 and I use 11 KHz, 16 bit, Mono and keep the length to short clips.  The video file is 352 by 240 (or smaller for the vert) and about 30 seconds long (no more than 880 mbit/sec) and the edges cropped.  With all that, I also need a 150 by 113 (or smaller for the vert) preview for the image clip.

I have a fair video editing system available that I use and doing all of these are second nature.

There is not an automated way for someone to upload files to the Badmovies.org server, so they should be emailed to me or uploaded somewhere I can download them (remembering that making too large of an email will cause my server to bounce the email).

It's not mandatory.  I just made it in case someone wanted to write a Badmovies.org style review.  It just provides a skeleton framework.

So do we just delete your names and stuff and type it in and it will come out normal?

Not entirely.  You copy from the template and paste into a new post, changing what you need after doing so.  What you get is a forum posted review that follows the format of a Badmovies.org one.

Question for Andrew: I mean to do a full scale badmovies.org review.  The movie I'm thinking of reviewing is THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN.  Because it's kind of a "classic", though, I'm worried you might want to do it yourself someday.

In general, would it be a good idea to ask about the movie we hope to review to see if you already have plans for it?

Yes, certainly if you are worried I might be working on a review.  I've actually put off my own reviews at times when somebody submitted a reader review, and also put a reader review on hold when I was posting my own.

I do mean to eventually review "They Saved Hitler's Brain," but it's not even on my review horizon, so please feel free.  If anything, I think you're jumping in front of the bullet for me.  That movie is boring.  Hellishly boring.

I plan on doing a review of the most bizzare treatment of the Jekyll and Hyde story, Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde.  I even made a montage of the Tim Daly-Sean Young male to female transformation scenes that is on my Daily Motion page (it's been watched more than 1000 times!).  Can I post the link on here with my review?  I'm still writing the review itself, but I figured, as a new member, I should ask.

It's like people only do things because they get paid.  And that's just really sad.
