This blog was inspired by Max Beerbohm (August 24, 1872 – May 20, 1956) an English essayist, parodist, critic and caricaturist.
He was once asked how he wrote his book reviews. He answered, "I look at the book, write the review and, if I like the review, I'll read the book." I sort of apply Max's approach to movies. Kind of like judging a book by its cover... only judging a movie by its trailer.

Oscar Best Picture Trailer Reviews and the return of the Beerbohm Award
Leading up to the Oscars, Beerbohmtastic will review Oscar Best Picture nominee trailers. It had been my intention after the second time consuming year of the Beerbohm Awards to simply review Oscar best picture nominee's trailers and present the Beerbohm Award to best trailer. Obviously, it didn't happen I'll try again. This year there will be only one Beerbohm Award, selected by readers and presented here and on Twitter following the Oscars.
Here's the impressive hardware:
Reviews will be in alphabetical order beginning shortly: "The Big Short" "Bridge of Spies" "Brooklyn" "Mad Max: Fury Road" "The Martian" "The Revenant" "Room" "Spotlight" Don't trust my silly reviews, watch the trailers then tell me at email@example.com Stay tuned....
