About Us


At The Critic’s Remote, we inflict cruel and unusual experiments on remote controls so you don’t have to think what button to press during your movies and TV shows.

That’s what we tell the kids, anyway, but besides Little Bobby, whose mom dropped him on his head when he was six month-old, no one really believes us.

We’re really about the celebration of the movie and TV moments in our lives: both the great ones that we can’t wait to talk about with buddies over a beer, and the ones that make us groan around a mouthful of popcorn. We do away with the usual trappings of movie reviews, and we focus instead on the emotions we experience as we sit in front of the screen.

But if you want to pretend we hook our remote controls to a Clockwork Orange setup, hey, that’s cool by us, too.
