All reviews must begin with credit information, in the format given below.
Released: Date if advance review. “Out now” if already released. “Generally available” if not a new release.
In credit panels, the section (e.g. Director) should be bolded, and the information (e.g. Stanley Kubrick) should be in standard text.
Please open with a short synopsis of the film you are reviewing. Synopses should be around 100 words long. Synopses should be written in italics. Titles of films, TV shows, books etc. within the synopsis should still be in bold, but in this case, titles of individual episodes should be in standard type. For example:
This is a short synopsis of the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This sentence is about an episode called Beer Bad.
All reviews should be accompanied by a suitable picture. This should be submitted as a separate file, not included in the review document. For new release films it should be the official film poster. For older films it should be a screen grab. Pictures should be no larger than 250 by 400 pixels.
Do not give away major plot twists in any review. If nothing else, think of the poor copy editor who reads every article submitted to the site!
Reviews should be your opinion, not a recap of the plot.
GeekPlanet does not give star ratings. We prefer that the review itself convey the quality of the media being reviewed.
