This blog is about finding something good for you to watch ten seconds from now.
Conventional online interfaces only do so much: they sell the very latest product and provide computerised recommendations based on algorithms. Film Authority is not about that. These are personal recommendations, watched, enjoyed and shared. The films featured are (almost all) online now, and our service is to connect you with the best possible movie for you to see right now.
Our short reviews provide a link to a separate service where you can watch the movie. When I started the blog, I tried to link to as many different streaming services as possible, but the way in which films drop in and out of availability made this very hard to maintain. So the default is Amazon, who seem to have the largest and most reliable catalogue at the moment. If the film can’t be located there, I’ll put a link for where it can (i-tunes, BFI, Vudu). And there’s always a few free ones via Tou Tube if you’re keen to avoid spending any cash right now.
I’ll throw in some new releases sometimes, but they will be marked as being in a different category, and are not always recommendations. A few opinion pieces too.
We’re up to 750 plus reviews, closing in on 1000, and had over 10,000 hits. Thanks for your support!
