Our filmmaker fans have long had a single request for an improvement here at MFM: film reviews! While we are very well known for our film critiques, which are aimed at helping filmmakers learn from their mistakes and improve their craft as filmmakers, the technical details which make these critiques so helpful aren't as great for folks who want to get publicity on the film viewer side of things. As such, we will now be launching our Straight Shooter Film Reviews. A "straight shooter" is someone who doesn't shovel manure, but tells you the unvarnished truth. These reviews will be all the things our filmmakers have said they want for publicity: short, non-technical, and designed for film watchers!
