The List: Movie Watch

The editor of ChristianityTodayMovies.com lists his favorite movie blogs and websites.

Entertainment Weekly

Informative, investigative, and intelligently written, EW is the standard bearer of entertainment magazines. If you want all of the inside scoop, go to Variety, but if you just want most of it, presented in a fun way without being gossipy or "fanboy," EW has the write stuff - especially now with the sharp-witted Diablo Cody, Oscar winner for Juno's script, as a back-page columnist.

MovieWeb, ComingSoon

Want to know what's coming down the pike - not just in the next few months, but even a couple years from now? I rely on these two sites to keep me informed on upcoming releases - when they're due, who's directing, who's starring, what's the latest news on each, images, trailers, and so on.

IMDb

The Internet Movie Database has just about everything you could possibly want to know about any movie ever made. Want to know if 1961's The Guns of Navarone won any Oscars? (It did: Best Special Effects.) Or who played Juror No. 11 in 1957's 12 Angry Men? (It was George Voskovec.) It's all here.

Looking Closer

Jeffrey Overstreet was the first critic on the CT Movies team when we launched in 2004 (he'd been writing Film Forum for CT for a while), and I've always appreciated his insights into the movies. I've learned more about how to watch a movie from Jeffrey than from anyone. His Looking Closer blog keeps me abreast of what's happening in film, music, and more, and his thoughtful commentary goes the extra mile.

FilmChat

If I only went to one website a day to find out what I had to know that would be relevant to CT readers, Peter T. Chattaway's FilmChat blog would be that one-stop shop. It's comprehensive, but especially zeroes in on films, themes, and news relevant to a Christian audience. Bookmark it.
