The Cinema on the Rocks Newsreel

Coming Attractions!

It has been a very hectic year away from the page, but new and exciting things are on the horizon for Cinema on the Rocks!

In the coming days, we'll be adding to our format (not changing: adding to!) to allow us to bring you more content in a more timely fashion. This will be particularly noticable with regard to reviews of feature length movies.

And hey: Ziggy will be at Phoenix Comicon at the end of May! He'll be co-hosting a "So You Want To Do A Podcast?" panel with other show hosts from the Four Eyed Radio Network on Day One, and who knows who else he might run into or what else might happen during the rest of the Con?

Look Who's Talking...

Looking to go further behind the scenes? Be sure to check out our Interviews page! Whether you want to know more about a pair of indie filmmakers, a chop socky star, or an Academy Award winner, you'll find interviews from across the filmmaking spectrum. 

Our Philosophy & Rating System

At Cinema on the Rocks, we believe that whoever said that life is too short to drink cheap wine was an idiot.  After all, how can you truly appreciate the sublime flavor of great Chianti without having also sipped Mad Dog 20/20?  Or, on the other end of things, you may never discover that most Dom Perignon is actually overpriced, overhyped swill until you try the reasonably priced Brut.  This is (and was and shall always remain) the Doom Cheez Philosophy.

Each of our feature-length movie reviews has a five-sentence short version, and a much more in-depth long version.  Short film reviews just get the long version. Webseries reviews include an overview look at the series in general, followed by a rundown of highlights from episodes and/or seasons. In all cases, we offer cheese and alcohol pairings with our reviews in lieu of stars or numeric ratings.  (We assume, of course, that you are mature enough to handle these things.) 

Welcome to Cinema on the Rocks. I invite you to please sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

-Ziggy Berkeley, proprietor of Cinema on the Rocks
