Reviews Page

I just got back from my heat in Wellington and I'm trying to get to the reviews page so I can review the other teams, but it doesn't seem to be working. After a while I can get to the page, but it is just the old V48 Hours reviews database and it doesn't have any slots for 2013. Are reviews not happening this year, or is the page just not up yet?

Annoyed Grunt:

2014 (Wellington) - A Little Bit of Pluck - The Against the Odds Movie
2013 (Wellington) - Parasite - The Robot/Cyborg/Android Movie
2012 (Wellington) - Sunday in the Park with Mary - Musical/Dance

Twins and Bullies:

2011 (Christchurch) - Tip of the Iceberg - Body-Switch Movie
2010 (Christchurch) - Sidney Manson Saved my Life - Biopic - Disqualified (Wrong DVD Format)
2009 (Christchurch) - Men of the Millenia - Politically Incorrect - Regional Winner of Best Bad Film Award

Nice work Nick.
I think it is a nice addition.
I'd limit the size of the comment to something fairly small.

One addition to the reviews page I would like it a more direct way to review multiple films from the same heat.
I found that once I had reviewed one it was a pain in the butt to get back to the relevant heat page.
Could there be a linked button called "Back to this heat" pop up after you've reviewed the film? Obviously this would be less relevant for reviewers who are using the screening room

Done! That new feature plus having any films you've already reviewed crossed out should make it easier for people doing mass reviewing to see who they have/haven't reviewed in a heat or city, as well as cutting down on multi-posting.

Awesome stuff, Nick - additions are great.

The PDF system sounds an interesting work on.

This year I kept my own review template pretty simple - just had some A4 sheets for each film with Plot, Plus, Minus and Interesting sections on them.

SCREENING NOW: End - Real Time; CHCH25s
REVISIT: The Stile - Star-crossed Lovers; ULTRA48; CHCH25s

Everything Sticks since 2008
