Be a Movie Critic for Ovation TV

posted by Nell Minow

Want to be a movie critic? Here’s your chance! Ovation TV is showing some certified classics this summer and inviting viewers to submit their reviews. They will show landmark films from big-time directors like David Lynch, Francis Ford Coppola and his daughter Sofia, Peter Bogdanovich, Woody Allen, and many more. These are movies that critics adore. Are they right? Ovation wants to know what you think about these films — Pioneering? Overrated? Better than “Citizen Kane?” Worse than “Howard the Duck?” The films include “Wall Street,” “Harold and Maude,” “The Conversation,” “The Producers,” “The Virgin Suicides,” and “Sweet and Lowdown.” Love them or hate them, send in a 1-minute video of your critique, get your friends to vote for you, and you just might see it broadcast on the air.
To get your opinions seen and heard on national TV, simply log in to the Ovation community, and upload your critique video anytime from June 22-July 12. Ovation will select the best videos with the most votes to air on TV between July 25-31. So sign up and get critiquing today!

Pride
The ingredients for this film were so irresistible that it is a unexpected bonus to find that it is so much better than it needed to be. It's based on a true story of extraordinary kindness, generosity, and friendship and it stars a bunch of adorable English actors (Imelda Staunton, Bill Nighy) w
