What’s inside

The word is movies1. The place
to find reviews of the latest film and
DVD releases as well as all the
news and gossip. Why
Because it’s all about movies
and naturally we want to become
Number 1 for interactivity.

So welcome to movies1,
Britain’s first Interactive Film Magazine, where we’d like you to tell us and your fellow readers what YOU think about the new films and cinema trends. Feel free to sound off on the price of popcorn and Pic ’n’ Mix in the local foyer, or anything else that concerns you.

Check out the various movies1 links and you’ll discover a world of screen info and film fun to which we’d love you to contribute.

So why not send us YOUR own personal Why I Love …’ or ‘Why I Hate …’ Enthuse about YOUR Favourite all-time Film Clip or reveal YOUR ‘Guilty Pleasure’.

Then tell all your friends and let them see your views in print. And if you actually make movies tell us how you’re getting on and how we can see the end results.

Regular updates include lists of all the upcoming film releases in the next four months,  as well as background features on current stars and filmmakers.

The success of movies1 is entirely dependent on YOUR reaction – good or ill – to our content. Interactivity is the key. This is your platform. So let us know what you think NOW!
