Need a Movie Recommendation?

Many people ask me for film recommendations. I also frequently hear people bemoan the fact that there are no films in theaters. So, I decided to create a weekly email service, Robo Recs, as an extension of my site, Roboapocalypse, to advise anyone who signs up on what to see theatrically and on home media. Some upcoming films that I will recommend are ROOM, SPOTLIGHT, and SUFFRAGETTE. If you would like to join the list, please email
