2 quick notes to birders re: The Big Year

Posted on October 14th, 2011 in Movie

I saw The Big Year last night at a midnight screening in Orlando. I’ll try to get my review up soon but my in-laws are visiting from Europe this week so it might be tough. Meanwhile I wanted to mention a couple of things very quickly regarding The Big Year.

First, bird bloggers and non-bloggers alike can add reviews (or an abridged review) to the popular film review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes. This site seems to be a go-to for a lot of potential audience members, so each positive review helps elevate The Big Year on the tomato scale.

Second, don’t spend too much time nitpicking details in the movie. But if you can’t help yourself (and you’re not alone there!), you can contribute to the page for The Big Year on IMDb (the Internet Movie Database). This is another huge website devoted to movies and details like trivia, quotes and goofs are archived. Each movie has a big yellow “edit page” button, so if you’ve got nits to pick with The Big Year, this is the place to do it. As of this posting, the goofs page for The Big Year is EMPTY. That cannot stand for long, I’m sure!!
