We here at Another Let Down feel as though it is important to stay on top of current film and television releases if we are to become better filmmakers ourselves. That said, we have opted to take turns attending (although often together) the latest cinematic releases. We try to be as unbiased as possible when we review a film which is part of the reason we take turns with it but it doesn’t always work out resulting in our reviews being frequently filled with cynicism. But we aren’t going to stop at filmmaking. Oh no. We’re going to be reviewing other sites, games, ideas, even hardware we might try out on our computers! We’re jacks of all trades and masters of none and here’s where we flaunt it!
