I'm not talking about B-movie or horror or sci-fi sites.  I'm referring to mainstream sites such as www.filmcritic.com

Filmcritic.com is pretty good.  They have several writers on staff who generally write some good reviews of all the newest and older movies.  They also focus on DVD reviews as well.



Another good one is www.filmthreat.com
Film Threat is a little harder edged when it comes to their writing.  The reviews are professional but expect to see some profanity occasionally sprinkled in.  Not a lot of profanity, but the F-bomb or one of the other curse words are usually used if the movie was particularly bad.

And of course, I have to mention Roger Ebert's site.
I enjoy reading his reviews and also the weekly "Answer Man" column where people write in with questions.
If you haven't seen it, check out his Little Movie Glossary.  It's hilarious.   Smile

How about you?
Which mainstream film review websites do you visit?

Usual I will only visit review sites that are linked from IMDB for movies I'm particularly interested in.  Often I'll hit Rotten Tomatoes and read the capsules, clicking on the full review if the reviewer seems to have an interesting take.  I'll always check out an Ebert review if he has one. 

For less mainstream sites, I'll also check out anything by Ken Begg (http://jabootu.net/).  And of course the webmasters here who post links to their reviews--I won't mention names for fear of leaving someone out.

I do it rarely, but when I do it's usually Rotten Tomatoes and BBC Movies to read Jonathan Ross' latest reviews.

I'll look at Rotten Tomatoes once in a while.  I get a kick out of the well deserved sarcasm heaped upon certain films.  Other than that it's all horror and B-movie reviews for me.

Mainstream?

I had to look it up, but it turns out it's very popular.  Who knew?  Wink

Rotten Tomatoes for new film reviews and IMDB for older obscure titles.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
