PLEASE NOTE:This page is for people interested in becoming
regular reviewers for our network of sites. If you just wish to comment on a movie, feel free to add a
rating/comment on that movie's page, or discuss it in our forums.
Thanks for your interest in joining our friendly team of fiery reviewers.
While we dig the fact that you want to be a film critic and we'd love to let everyone have free reign to just beat the hell out of every awful film they want, the fact is that we have to retain a certain standard of quality in order to maintain our own legitimacy in the industry. Translated: A beatdown may be fun, but a beatdown with style is a thing of beauty.
So if you would like to become a reviewer for us, and perhaps find yourself being sent out to film festivals and on press junkets and to media screenings, we need you to prove yourself first. In order to best gauge your critiquing ability, we'd like you to write two reviews -- one positive and one negative.
1. Write your reviews. No, don't write them in the boxes below, write them in Word or Notepad or some sort of word processing program, then spell-check them, grammar-check them, read them over a few times and be sure that they represent your best work. If we find spelling errors, spoilers, or we're totally bored by the reviews, we'll probably reject the submission.
2. When you're done writing (and rewriting) your reviews, cut 'n paste them into the boxes below, fill in your details and send off your application.
3. We'll review the application and your submitted reviews, and if you impress us as an able addition to our fine stable, you'll get your account details emailed to you within a week or so (give or take a few days). If you didn't impress us, on the other hand, we'll probably not bother letting you know. Rejection tends to somewhat annoy people.
Once you are an official "reviewer" you will have access to our "members only" section, which allows you to review at will, have access to our reviewer's message board and keep a personal profile on the site. The reviews you submit will be seen on both Hollywood Bitchslap and the Australia-specific eFilmCritic website, as well as other location specific sites that are still in the planning stages.
Let your personality shine through and, all things considered, maybe you'll be a movie critic in a week or so.
