I finally got around to actually putting to good use our "Second Look" feature. And now that the first is up, it will be a good reminder for me to do a new one every week or whatever.

Anyways, it's basically a front page highlight of a random review. The critic will be random, and his review will be chosen by myself. I'll be keeping an eye out for reviews that do something special i.e. talk about a movie that was underreviewed by the staff, is particularly well written, or I dunno...just feels right.

Our first front page highlight is from Kernan's early submissions. It's his review of Four Brothers. Only 2 of our staff reviewed the film, and I think he hits the nail on the head with that one considering it was only his third or fourth review.

So Go Kernan or something!

As soon as I figure out how to change what the "second look" blurb says I'll spice that up each week. I'll ask Thom about that.

How do you (or, how will you) go about choosing a random review?

Just a random number generator. Although it can't be any old review. Like I said, it has to be something a little special.

Why not set up a php script to do all the work for you?

This week's second look feature is Mark Lanzana's review of Suzhou River.

Also, I found out how to customize the text for the front page with these. Yay.

I'm pretty sure 90% of us loved The 40 Year old Virgin, and to promote this great comedy for rental, Al's well-rounded and pretty comprehensive review is now showcased on the front page.
