Oh, hi … didn’t see you there.

It’s been a long time coming, this whole website thing. I’ve owned ChristyLemire.com for about five years but have let it sit there, languishing until today, because a) I had a day job and b) I had no idea what to do with it. Now that I am a citizen of the world, I’ve been building this thing little by little over the past couple months – hence, you will see some insanely old reviews here. But you still care what I think about ‘The Internship,” right?

The plan is to offer you guys a daily mix of stuff: new reviews, What the Flick?! clips, links to various television appearances and random thoughts in general. One of the reasons I decided to branch out on my own was to have the freedom to write about whatever I want in as many words as I want, so I look forward to reviewing a wide variety of movies. And I take requests, so if there’s something you want to see, please say so.

ChristyLemire.com is very much a work in progress, so feel free to look around, see what you think and pipe up with any ideas/suggestions/criticism. If I’m gonna dish it out, I better be able to take it.

Tremendous thanks go to Steve Zehngut, founder of Zeek Interactive and an important friend for nearly 30 years, for taking my babblings and turning them into the beautiful website you see now. I am a total freaking Luddite and could not have done any of this without him.

I’m so proud to be able to share this with you, and thrilled that you took the time to stop by. Hope you enjoy.

    Great! I’ve loved your reviews since your guesting days on At the Movies. Can’t wait to see this site develop.

    Hooray! You are one of the few reviewers I enjoy and respect–even when I don’t agree with a given review. It will be great not to hunt for your reviews and articles now. I’ll be a regular visitor. Thanks Christy and good luck!

    Needs a little work — it’s whiter than a Kubrick set in here — but the important thing is that there’s finally one place to see all your stuff.

    Actually, I like the minimalism of it — and I like Kubrick — so I’m gonna go ahead and take that as a compliment.

    It’s about danged time! First I lost sight of you when Roger Ebert Presents went away, then the AP thing happened (understandable, but still), then I had to find you on Twitter and What The Flick. This is better.

    Roger was always my lodestone when it came to movies. Over time I came to know, in some situations, if he didn’t like a movie and he explained why, that I would like it and why. Not that we disagreed often, but his sensibilities were consistent enough and his reviews were eloquent enough to let me know when I was going to disagree.

    You’re becoming my lodestone now. Welcome to this wonderful new venture, and I wish you much success!

    Looks great Christy!
    Congrats on the website.. look forward to reading it every day (well, almost every day. ok, maybe every few days. ok ok, I promise once a week. Religiously. Ok, I’m kind of an atheist, so maybe not religiously, but frequently. Yeah, that’s it! FREQUENTLY!).

    Huzzah Christy, nice! Stoked that you have your own little online sandbox!

    Hey Christy. Congratulations on the new web site. I’ve already got it bookmarked. I know that keeping up with new movies is a full-time job, but I would really enjoy reading your reviews of classic movies as well. It could be your own version of Roger Ebert’s Great Movies. Take care and good luck.

    I tend to watch movies that appeal to me without reading anything about them. Over the years, I have found that we have a very similar taste in movies. The way you express your opinions about movies is often eerily similar to my own feelings about them. I am thoroughly enjoying the the “one stop shop” of you. I think you are the best in the biz!!
