Movies are one of the most popular forms of entertainment worldwide as they tell a story in the audio visual form. Today there are different ways of watching movies, in movie theatres or multiplexes, on television, DVDs, Bluray, movie downloads. Except for television and movie downloads, watching movies can be expensive. So most people check out movie reviews before deciding whether it is worthwhile spending time and money watching the movie. These movie reviews may be published online on different websites or offline in newspapers, magazines and other periodicals.
Most large media companies have specialized movie critics associated with them, who review the movies released every week. These critics are often invited to movie screenings by the movie producer before the formal release of the movie in theaters. Many critics have a distinct style of reviewing the movies. These reviews are featured in the newspaper on a fixed day of the week, usually saturday or sunday, so that readers can check out the movie review before deciding to purchase a ticket or buy a DVD for entertainment on weekends. Online movie review websites of non mainstream media companies are more flexible with respect to reviews and allow any one who has viewed the movie to submit movie reviews for publishing.
