About Us

“In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We enjoy a position over those who offer their work and selves up for judgement. We thrive on negative criticism which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.” – Anton Ego, Ratatouille (2007)

About The Website:

One Movie, Our Views (formerly One Movie, Five Views) is a Canadian entertainment website that launched in the summer of 2008 with five reviews of the movie Get Smart. Started by a group of freelance writers from Toronto, the site was co-founded by siblings John Corrado and Erin Corrado and was built around the idea that a team of critics would each watch the same movie, write a review and then form a consensus averaging out the number grades, to offer a selection of different opinions or views on the same movie. The site has since evolved to offer more singular reviews of films written by our head writer John Corrado, while still offering the “Our Views” feature from time to time.

The bulk of our main content includes reviews of current theatrical releases, including everything from the biggest of blockbusters to the tiniest of independent films, as well as weekly home entertainment reviews of different new releases on DVD and Blu-ray. Some of our other features have included opinion pieces on different aspects of the entertainment industry, as well as reviews of various film related books and movie soundtracks. We have also done interviews with some notable names in the industry.

As a general policy, we try to keep our reviews free of overly offensive language, and any spoilers will be marked in advance. We always welcome the thoughts and opinions of our readers down in the comments section, and will try to find an answer to any of your questions. However, our comments are moderated and we will not upload any rude or offensive remarks, so please keep things civilized.
