Movie Review Sweepstakes: Win a $50 Fandango gift card from!

April 9th, 2012

Sure, we all believe in movie magic, but sometimes scraping up the funds for a trip to the theater is just as difficult as agreeing with friends on which flick to see. Whether it’s a romantic comedy or a jaw dropping thriller, there’s nothing better than digging your hands into a bucket of popcorn, drinking a trough of soda and finishing it all before the actual film even starts. To celebrate the love of cinema, we want to hear your movie reviews: new or old. Seems simple, but can you do it in 140 characters or less? A movie review automatically gets you entered so everyone is on equal ground, but we’ll be featuring the submissions we “Like” the best to share the movie magic. Details on how to enter are outlined below.

Example: Titanic 3D — Exactly like Titanic in 2D. Ship sinks. Rose lets go, despite saying she never will. Celine Dion’s voice made my ears bleed.
