Welcome to Movie Reviews 101

Movie Reviews 101 was created back in 2010 with the simple goal of sharing my feelings on movies I watched. After spending many years of watching most movies and not having a chance to chat to people about them. What started a small side project turned into a much bigger project. Over the years, Movie Reviews 101 has grown to levels I never imagined. With chances to cover upcoming releases thanks to the amazing PR people out there who have reached out over the years.

Movie Reviews 101 – Mission Statement

Movie Reviews 101 has dedicated years on film reviews, list articles and promotional posts. I want to continue this process for the future continue bringing as many different movies to the attention of the world.

This being said, I would like to open up the site for more writers to come along and bring their own opinions on movies. Be it general reviews, or reviews for the monthly ABC Film Challenges.

I am looking to grow the writing team on the site, if you would like to join the team. Please contact moviereviews101@yahoo.co.uk I am open to give anyone a chance to put their own opinion on the site, even if you have never done it before.

My Own Personal Growth

I have been writing on this site for over 10 years. Now I would like to start writing on other entertainment sites, be it one off article or on a regular basis. This doesn’t mean I am leaving Movie Reviews 101 behind. I just want to make more connections and continue to improve my own influence in the world of talking about movies.

If you would like to chat about working together you can contact me at moviereviews101@yahoo.co.uk

You can follow me on Twitter here – @newguyreview101

Smashbomb is a new social media site I have joined, you can follow me here

I have set up a Fiverr account to where you can follow or contact me here.

Movie Reviews 101 has been an amazing journey, one that is going to continue for years to come.

Thank you for stopping by and hopefully we can chat about movies.

  2. Hey there Darren! I’m very new to “the blogging game” and I know that you’ve been diligently reading my posts. It really means the world to me, so first of all – thanks a million. Second of all, I have the chance to show my gratitude with the Dragon’s loyalty award (guidelines here: http://moviesreview101.com/). If I understand correctly, you have two blogs (?) so I nominated both of them. Thanks for being such a great supporter, and I’m really looking forward to getting to know you/your blogs more!
    P.S. let me know when you post the award!

    • Thanks, I do only have/use on site now i use the username Newguy so the site used t be called Newguy’s movie reviews (hence the twitter) but i signed up to be a LAMB (you should look into them if you haven’t already) i still used the twitter handle and didn’t want to change it but change site name to Movie Reviews 101.

      If you want to meet a few more writers the ones i speak to most anyway have a look at opinion Battles all these people are very interactive and if you like the look of the idea you are welcome to join in.

  4. Janice Wald – Santa Clarita, CA – By night, I am a happy blogger, wife, mother of three daughters, and a dog owner. By day, I am a teacher. Ancient and medieval world history are my passions, and I have taught both at the middle school level. It's my dream to one day teach education at the college level so I can empower other teachers. Toward that pursuit I recently completed my Masters Degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction. My Email is Broadwaymusicalfan which speaks volumes about my other passion, musical theater. I have acted in community plays three times and would relish the chance to do more acting, even on a professional level. I might even have the chance to act in my own movie since I am currently collaborating on a screenplay! After Tweeting for years and collecting thousands of followers, I look forward to a more in-depth analytical exchange of ideas about a wide variety of blogging-related topics.

        Glad to see another horror fan, it’s probably my favourite genre too.

  6. Just thought I’d drop by and take some time to actually say thanks for liking a lot of the stuff on my blog. It means a lot! Trust me, I’ve seen yours and I have to say, it really is well-handled with a lot of detail and content. I can see why you’re very popular ʘ‿ʘ
