Paid to review movies? Where I could get one?
July 7, 2011 5:21am CST
I recalled someone in Jessica Soho Reports a well known Documentarists. They feature a man which his work is to review movies. Her just watch and watch 7 days weeks. And give his opinion or comment after the movie he watched. Is there a site where I could do that too? I am really desperate to have a work like that.

Reviewstream will not accept movie reviews if you submitted more than 5. This is already considered a a writers block, meaning you need to review more than just a movie, but almost all products, appliances and such, for now being accepted is difficult since if a member already accepted an existing review, tendency is that your review will be paid in bulk, if not rejected!

As unpaid work, you can do it anywhere you like. As paid work, you'll have a lot more trouble. You'll need to build a reputation for good, solid reviews before any movie company will even consider things like free cinema tickets. There's a guy who blogs on Orble who did this: he wrote reviews and basically proved he was good at it. Then he started contacting the film companies (or rather their marketing affiliates) and getting tickets. Now he's on their list for free premiere tickets when stuff opens in Australia. This is the kind of work that, as you can imagine, is over-subscribed because everyone thinks it'd be cool. But when it comes down to it, watching movies all day every day would be just as tedious as any other job - especially if you can't relax while watching them. You're going to be writing a review, you need to keep a very particular mindset. No fun, just work.

This is interesting. I write reviews of the movies I watch so somehow, I'm being paid for it. But I'm curious as to what sites really do pay for a review. Thanks for posting this topic. I hope to learn something new today, and perhaps this is one of those things.

haha, i dun think there's such good offer online. U have to apply it in real life and work from there. I guess u need to have certain level of criteria in order work there. If not, everything is screen and choosen based on your favourites, it's not gonna be fair.. haha ^^ ALl the more this job wont be available online. Even if there is, u will be paid very little.. lol

I am not too sure how you would obtain such a position. Someone has suggested some online sites that may help. I wonder if contacting radio and TV stations along with newspapers and magazines would get you anywhere...I doubt it is an easy job to find because I’ve noticed many reviewers already have a public profile elsewhere. My sister and I were contemplating what our passions in life were and she said lying on the couch and watching TV was hers; your discussion has given me the idea that perhaps she could become a TV reviewer! Not a bad job if you can get it! Good luck with it...

To date, I am pretty sure that no site would pay you for reviewing movies. Ciao.com used to accept movie reviews among others but Ciao is already a thing of the past. I think what you saw at Jessica Soho's program is only for that man and selected few who have already proven themselves to be experts in that field and whose opinions matter that much to producers and directors concerned.

it was fun to watch the movie and then give a little comment and just get the money. I think a lot of sites out there like that. If I'm not wrong, youtube too, just maybe short movie. But only Youtube that i believe will not be going turned be a scam. If you have some information there is another...please tell me!

I guess there is, as one member had even put a link if you are interested.Maybe what the documentaries had reported is true but , you must be a good critic or reviewer in order to earn extra in this field. You will also be oblige to see(finished) the whole film in order for you to write a good review and this can be tiresome.Anyway I hope you find a good paying site.
