More About This Page
Cinafilm collect movies reviews from thousands of professional critics and hundreds of thousands of amateur reviewers from all over the world and from all walks of life.
The diverse range of opinions gives you a good overview of what to expect from a film. People agree and disagree, but the average film score can say a lot about the overall quality of a film and the ability of the cast and director.
Film critics inform readers by sharing their views and recommend films based on their knowledge of film making and what makes a "good film" in their opinion.
Critics typically watch hundreds of films every year, casting their experienced eyes over the latest films at the cinema. And they aren't shy about sharing exactly how they felt when watching a film. Often they tell it straight and provide good analysis and basic facts, without giving too much of the plot away. No one likes spoilers!
We are all film critics at heart. Anyone with a keen eye, who loves movies, and is willing to share an opinion, can write a short review to let people know what they thought of a movie.
Professional film critics are paid to review films. They usually work for a newspaper, magazine, broadcaster or online publication. They tend to focus on the technical aspects of film maker and the quality of the dialogue, more so than members of the public. Critics often rave about movies which have original stories, complex characters and an artistic flare.
Individual users post reviews to share their personal opinion of movies. This type of reviewer has nothing to gain or lose, whether they praise a film or tear it apart. Users are more likely to give unqualified opinions or use colourful language, compared to film critics. Amateur reviewers tend to enjoy feel-good movies and big, action blockbusters with lots of CGI.
