Movie Review

Item Name & Description: Movie Review

I watch a lot of movies! Some of them are lovely installments in the ongoing pop-culture conversation of film, thoughtfully crafted and quietly touching. Many of them are just dreadful, and sometimes that’s more fun.

I write them up regularly on the Questionable Taste Theatre feature on my blog, and there are a surprising number of movies I see that I can’t even bring myself to talk about there. (Remember that Snow White-for-kids movie where the jester was a deep-undercover prince for Snow White’s entire life so he could groom her from infancy to be his bride? I sure do!)

However, I will definitely talk about it, or many another bad movie, if you win this auction and tell me to.

Starting Bid: $20

Notes: I’ll watch a movie that’s several levels of bad, no problems. But there are some genres, particularly torture-porn horror, which are hard for me to review because I’m an enormous coward, and if you picked Hostel I would be reviewing it based only on the copy on the back of the DVD because scary is not my bag. There might also be some lurking dealbreakers (Sean Penn nooooo!). We’ll work it out.

Bidding is now open and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.

Review of something of your choice

Item Name & Description: A review of a book/comic/tv series/movie/etc. of your choice

Starting Bid: $5

Notes: I’ll write a review of something of your choice, to be posted on my blog.

The subject of the review should be something readable (book, manga, comic, short story, etc.) or watchable (movie, anime, tv show, drama, etc.), and it should be limited to about 4 hours of time. So that’s about 500-800 pages of book, or a few comic volumes. It should also be available in a way that’s accessible to me, otherwise it’ll be kind of difficult for me to review it ;).

I’ll post the review within a month of finishing whatever I’m reviewing.

Bidding opens on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.
