Thompson on Hollywood

As IndieWIRE builds up its critics pages (CriticWIRE), two veteran critics are joining the IW Blog Network: Reel Geezers Marcia Nasatir and Lorenzo Semple, Jr.

On Sunday, Reel Geezers started posting video reviews again via their new IndieWIRE blog and SnagFilms video player. Their review archives, which were a big hit on YouTube, are being added as well. Their two latest reviews are The Men Who Stare at Goats and Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire. If the Geezers represent the Academy (they are both voting members), Precious could be the one to beat.
