What do you get when you mix two brothers, one an award-winning television director, the other an award-winning writer? You get the Movie Brothers, Brian and Matt Volke, two rabid film fans who wanted a forum to share their movie reviews and, sometimes, opposing tastes. Brian sees through the lens, Matt through the page.
Films will be reviewed on a scale of 1-10. A film worthy of a 10 takes takes something like Stanley Kubrick’s “Paths of Glory” or Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed.” A film with a 1 is like “Mannequin 2: On the Move” or “Batman and Robin.”
We will also post Top 5 lists like, “Top 5 scariest movies” or “Top 5 movies we can’t wait to see this summer,” and have humor and commentary pieces, like “Enough with the TV Remakes” and “The Smurfs teaser trailer: What the smurf?!“
The Movie Brothers also have some regular contributors, like Victor De Leon. Victor brings with him a wealth of experience. He studied film at Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and has written several screenplays. Each of Victor’s reviews will be of a classic film, and we’re excited to have his insight and experience added to our content. Kyle Baker is a regular contributor for reviews and commentary for both the podcast and website. He’s an avid movie lover and studied television and digital film design and production at the State University of New York at Fredonia.
The Movie Brothers are also proud to partner with LAMB — the Large Association of Movie Blogs. Check it out here.
