Here at Filmwerk we have managed to assemble a diverse team of writers whose interests are quite varied. As a result we are able to bring you informed opinions on not just the mainstream cinema and disc releases but also a wide variety of global classics and genre specific releases.

Think Social Business
Did you find us through Facebook, Twitter or maybe a Google search? We’ve had a couple of social media experts on the case and they’ve been taking care of our social media strategy for us. Since they started working with us, our online presence has grown hugely. We’d like to publicly thank them here…and if you ever need anyone to take over the reins of your social media for you, these guys are the ones we’d recommend you get in touch with. Chris and Susie at Think Social Business, we thank you!
The Rating System
Like many we have a 5 star system. But we also have writers who object to the star rating and don’t use them at all. So if you come across a review with no stars don’t assume it is a terrible film, it has merely been rated in the words only.
But those writers that do use the system use it as explained below. We may cheat on the podcast an include half star marks but not on the site! The 5 stars are awarded thusly:
An exceptional film. Unmissable!
This is very good and well above average. Recommended!
Competent, but don’t expect miracles from it. We tend to frown upon 3 star films generally as they should have been better, and probably could have been as well.
Poor. A film that lets the side down. Only go if you are truly desperate or a completest.
Rubbish. Avoid at all costs it is just terrible.
