Movie Website Reviews for Weekend of January 2, 2009

January 3rd, 2009

Just the two releases this week, with only site, Defiance's Official Site being remotely above average. Fortunately, that site is worthy of the Weekly Website Award.

Defiance - Official Site
A huge site that is loaded with background information about the events in the movie. As you watch the trailer, you can click on bookmarks to see historical clips and images and read about the real life events. In addition to those nine sections, there's an historical featurette, which his long enough that is would not be out of place on the DVD. In addition, there are the usual features (synopsis, production notes, cast & crew bios, images, and trailers) as well as more common special features like clips. In terms of style, there's some background music and the design helps, but this is a case of substance over style, which is something worth rewarding. Granted, there is almost no competition this week in the most literal sense, but at least this site is worthy of the resistive Weekly Website Award.

Good - Official Site
Most of the usual features are here; you have to download the production notes to read the crew bios. There is also nothing that makes it stand out.
