Need Some Movie Advice? Let Us Help!


Typical Smug Film reader at a movie store.

If cinema has taught us anything, it’s not to trust robots. So why get movie recommendations from robots? Robots don’t know anything about movies. If they did, they’d make ’em themselves or whatever. So fuck all that algorithmic nonsense on Netflix and Amazon and IMDb and countless other sites. Nothing beats good ol’ fashioned advice from a knowledgable film buff who enjoys stuff from all genres. But gone are the days when you could walk into a video store and get that sort of service. Which is why we have started a free movie advice column.

Simply drop an email to, and we’ll get to your request soon!

Important Announcement (9/30/13): We recently came to the knowledge that our form for advice had been malfunctioning for many months. Google had interpreting the submissions as spam, and trashing them after 30 days. If you submitted a request and didn’t receive a reply from us and we didn’t answer it on the site, please send it again. We’re very sorry for the hassle.
