Welcome To The People’s Movies! An UK based Film review Website.

The slogan for this site is “Your Movies, My Movies, The People’s Movies”, and that’s the reason I started this site. I’m like you; a movie fan, and recently rediscovered my true love for movies. I wanted a platform where I could talk about movies, write about them, show the trailers and give honest opinions without prejudice. Have you ever loved a movie that mainstream media has hated or hated a film they loved? Well, The People’s Movies can be the place for you to share your opinion.

I wanted a way to talk, argue and debate about films no matter what my opinion, no questions asked, no mainstream snobbery interfering. What originally started as a pastime at college has now blown up into a fully-fledged website and blog, and it’s still growing! All the way back in 2008 I couldn’t see this site lasting long, but thanks to you guys, it’s still here and getting bigger and better!

If you love a Hollywood Blockbuster, checking out trailers, reading reviews, or anything to do with movies, The People’s Movies is the place to be. Love movies and want to get involved? Just email me and say hello!

The People’s Movies was Nominated for Best Overall Blog at the Total Film Movie Blog Awards 2011. We have now featured in Vuelio’s Top UK Film Blogs for 20182019 list , 2020 list, and 2021 list 2022 list

Join The Team…

Are you passionate about film? Are you sick of reading reviews you don’t agree with? Are you looking for a platform to showcase your own views? Then The People’s Movies is the site for you! We’re currently looking for writers and reviewers to join our team. You’ll be able to attend preview screenings, premieres in London, film festivals and other film-related events, and most of all write reviews and articles in the knowledge your views are your own and will be respected.

So where do I sign up?

Fill in the short contact form and tell us a little about yourself and the reason you want to join us. If you’ve done any reviews or articles, send us links to some examples of your previous work. If you’re just interested in helping writing some film-related articles and features and attending interviews, please do get in touch as well, we’d love to hear from you too! Fill out the form on the Write For Us page to tell us a little bit about you and what area you’re interested in contributing to.

Freelance Writers

Whilst we have a great bunch of fantastic writers, sometimes we need a little help with the reviews, interviews, and possibly other film/TV-related events. This is our call out to any freelance writers who are looking for films to review, cinema releases – including previews in Glasgow* and London – and home releases such as DVD, Blu-Ray, and online.

All we ask is that you’re up for reviewing anything even if you know that film might not be great, but still delivering a constructive, entertaining review. Unfortunately, we can’t offer you any remuneration, but instead a kind of payment for previewing films before they’re out and maybe even festival passes. If you’re interested in this please email paul@thepeoplesmovies.com with the title ‘Freelance’.

*Please mention if you’re a ‘Scottish Press Days’ Member for Glasgow.

PR/Film Companies/Film Festivals

Are you a PR Company working on behalf of a film distributor or film-related company? Are you that film distributor looking for your film/films promoted or the news spread about your upcoming film festivals? At The People’s Movies, we have a team of passionate film fans based in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, and even Australia to review and write about your film, news story, or festival to give it some promotion in the UK.

We have also started Podcasting. Once a month, editor Paul Devine was one critics on long running Outside Centre Podcast that focus on World cinema. We are also in the process of restarting The Peoples Movies Podcast, which covers everything from Mainstream/indie new releases to cult classics re-releases
