Slashfilm, otherwise known as /Film, is the kind of blog film geeks like me die for. Back in 2005 the blog was launched by film critic Peter Sciretta, and in the six years since its inception /Film has become one of the blogosphere’s largest film communities. Run by Sciretta and a team of four or five contributing writers, it’s heaven for both the casual moviegoer as well as the more serious film connoisseur.
/Film is the go-to for industry news, trailer premieres, film reviews, interviews, information on special deals and random finds from the web–something I tend to geek out over. Over the years, the blog has expanded to cover topics that extend beyond the film universe, including television and the occasional tidbit on celebrity gossip. The blog has also added its weekly podcast series /FilmCast, which has featured interviews with and commentary from big names like directors Kevin Smith (“Clerks”) and Rian Johnson (“Brick”).
As a frequent /Film visitor, I have found it to be a great forum for discussion with other film geeks like myself. It’s one of the few blogs where I find the comments section equally as intriguing as the actual content of the posts. I would especially recommend browsing the comments of anything having to do with comic books.
