Help wanted: Movie reviewer


As much as I might not want to admit it, I’m old. I don’t have a great finger on the pulse of what high school students like in movies these days. That’s a problem, because the whole point of this site is to give a big microphone to what high school students are saying about the things that are important to them.

As a result of this gaping hole in our staffing, I’m looking for a good writer who loves movies and has a few strong opinions about them. Not every piece you’ll write has to be a movie review, but two or three every month should be. Therefore, I’m soliciting applications from anyone who might want to be our movie reviewer. Only high school students should apply.

Email me a few sentences about yourself and, in 500–700 words, review one of this year’s Academy Award nominees for Best Picture:

  • Call Me by Your Name
  • Darkest Hour
  • Dunkirk
  • Get Out
  • Lady Bird
  • Phantom Thread
  • The Post
  • The Shape of Water
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Reviewers will be paid, and we’re an equal opportunity employer. Applications should be sent to (or any questions you may have about how we work, what we’ve done in the past, and so on). The deadline for applications is Monday, February 12.
