NOTE TO LONG-SUFFERING READERS: Changed ISP again, hopefully for the last time. Every single file is here, and always has been - so, when you find 'leonardo.spidernet.net/Artus/2386' or 'my.primehome.com/theodorospa' in the url, simply replace them with 'theoscentury.com' (while keeping the file name) and everything will be fine. Sorry for the manual labo(u)r but I think it'll be okay, there's probably an app you can use or something, I've been here since 1996 how is that even possible...

Hasta la Vista, Baby
- Started writing film reviews for the Cyprus Mail in 1997, a couple of months after launching this website (I actually showed them the reviews on the site to get the job). Mostly walked away in 2020, spurred by the pandemic and a growing feeling of irrelevance, though I'm still at the paper and may be doing the occasional write-up. A partial archive - under my pseudonym 'Preston Wilder' - is here.
Visits? That Would Indicate Visitors!
- Mike D'Angelo,
22nd-greatest critic of all time, has re-designed his website, making me the
only 20th-century holdout on the Internet.
- Now based in Houston, eloquent diehard Michael Sicinski
takes a bold first step on the road back to Berkeley (his spiritual home). And
there was much rejoicing.
- Matt Lotti
does the best Links ever. If only he liked the occasional movie, he'd be just about perfect.
- Jeremy Heilman (a.k.a. the Movie
Martyr) watches all the films you and I don't have the time or inclination
to see. And he watches all the other films too, just to make sure.
- Jason Overbeck
is the only person on this list with an Oscar-winning film on his
- Vadim Rizov has been mugged, laid off,
punched in the face, and tormented by a dog named Chloe. And through it all, he
just can't stop writing.
- Dan Sallitt's
favourite films lists (red? blue? purple?) have shaped a generation.
- Steve Erickson has been Chronicling his Passion(s) - which now include making electronic music - since the 90s.
- "Rightwing film geek" Victor
Morton is too hard on himself ; some might say he makes a religion out of
it. He also updates about as often as the Pope sings in Swahili.
- I don't know why it's taken so long to include
Prigge on these Links, but I've been meaning to do it for ages.
- Bilge Ebiri and I have some Eastern
Mediterranean genes in common - except he got the one that allows him to be
knowledgeable about every film ever made, and I didn't.
- Life's little pleasures include watching old movies then checking to see
what Fernando Croce
has to say about them.
- I don't know who GravyMovie
is, but he's seen over 10,000 films so that's gotta be a good thing (right?).
- IMDb users think The Shawshank Redemption is
the greatest film of all time. Yet they also include Matthew
Wilder and Darragh
- The Daily and
Movie City News
make me feel well-informed.
- Rouge and Senses
of Cinema make me feel intellectual.
just makes me feel good about myself. I can't explain it.
