Movie Views to Use and Amuse

We are Cinekong

Norma Desmond* was right. The pictures have gotten small. Sure, there are still Hollywood blockbusters every summer and Oscar-bait serious films brought out in the fall, only now, instead of lining up to see them at the theater, you can watch them on your laptop, your kindle, or even your phone.

*Sunset Boulevard 1950 classic directed by Billy Wilder starring Gloria Swanson and William Holden. Watch it.

About Cinekong

We inform, help and support the movie community

Cinekong is the U.S. based movie blog website, launched in 2018, to use and amuse.

Norma Desmond* was right. The pictures have gotten small. Sure, there are still Hollywood blockbusters every summer and Oscar-bait serious films brought out in the fall, only now, instead of lining up to see them at the theater, you can watch them on your laptop, your kindle, or even your phone. 

Cinekong isn’t here to debate whether that’s good or bad; it’s just a fact of cinematic life these days. But with more options on how to watch a film, fans are now faced with an absolute deluge of movies to choose from, often through computer-generated lists that have no real rhyme or reason. Movies that are 20 years old get presented as “New Releases.” You’ll find films that never made it into theaters promoted as “Blockbusters.” Graphic Horror movies are under the Comedy banner, and slapstick Comedies are under Action.

Separating the really good from the really bad

With all these different kinds of movies being shoved at you, how do you separate the really good from the really bad, the actual classics from the total crap? It’s not as easy as it seems, because what one cinephile proclaims to be a great film may cause other viewers to throw their chosen viewing device against the wall in frustration.

Cinekong.com is the answer. Using our 35+ years as a professional reviewer, in tandem with more than 50 years of just loving movies, we offer a site that helps guide you through the rush of the streaming services to find movies worth watching. They won’t always be new releases; some of them you will have never heard of before. And they won’t always be traditionally “good;’ some will be so bad you just have to see them. All will come with a Cinekong story to explain why they’re here. We will also post movie news that we find interesting, from new release announcements to tributes and tales that just don’t fit in the review section.
