Reel History: Historian Alex von Tunzelmann watches classics of big screen history and seperates fact from fiction.

Movies and More from acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert. Roger's website is full of well-considered film reviews, commentaries on many things relating to the film industry (for example, clear explanations of his dislike of 3D), and much, much more. Any serious film student or filmmaker is familiar with his work - and you should be too!

Rotten Tomatoes movie reviews. What's helpful with this site is that it's divided into 3 ratings (expressed in percents). First is 'All Critics" (published reviewers), next is 'Top Critics' (expert published reviewers known for their in-depth knowledge of films), and lastly 'Audience' (useful when a film is hugely popular, but not necessarily a work of art). This site is very helpful when you want to read many reviews of the same film (just click on "Top Critics" and you can easily link to the reviews).
