Generally, movies I have seen and intend to review are on this list, with links to live reviews. If the link is not live, I intend to review it but have not finalized it. If you have a question about a specific movie, feel free to email me with a question at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
My movie reviews include an approximate word count . Typical reviews in newspapers run about 300-400 words. My longer reviews (700+) typically appear as movie analysis published by the Independent Institute in Oakland, California. All my reviews can be found on Facebook (Movie Reviews by Sam Staley, or @themovieswithsam) as well as on my personal blog (blog.srstaley.com).

A movie may not be on this list for one of two reasons: I have not seen the movie, or the movie scored lower than an 8.5 on my rubric (roughly a B).
Given the subjective nature of movies as an expression of art, and the fact negative reviews tend to prejudice the commercial success of a film more than positive ones, I generally do not post negative reviews.
