As we head into a new year, Criticwire continues to grow and adapt to our mission of providing a smart resource for critics and movie lovers of every type. We’ll continue to update you as these changes take place…starting now: A number of you noted with frustration that you were unable to see which critics voted for each finalist in the poll. Now, by visiting the Best Film page (or any other category of finalists listed here) and floating your cursor over Overall Critic Score, you will see a list of which critics voted for that film along with how it was ranked on individual lists. Like this:
Soon, we hope to make it possible to view critics’ ballot on individual pages as well (for the time being, you can find ballots broken down by category at the bottom of individual critics pages). We also plan to bring to back our archive of previous poll results stretching back to 2006 after temporarily taking them down to accommodate our new design.
In the coming months, expect more regular surveys along the lines of our year-end poll as well as additional features that will allow you to sift through critical responses to discover critics and movies alike.
The most important goal for Criticwire is to address the needs of people who care about movies and criticism, so please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have suggestions, questions or concerns by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
