The Lamplight Review (formerly known as The Nerd Repository) was originally launched in 2011, with a single review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Since that time, we’ve published more than 500 movie reviews, covered festivals like Sundance and SXSW, and interviewed numerous film and television personalities. Quotes from our reviews have appeared in marketing campaigns for indie films like The Kings of Summer, Pet and even major releases like Moana.

Two of our writers, Brent Hankins and Kyle Wilson, currently serve as members of the Phoenix Critics Circle, and our passionate team continues to focus on delivering intelligent and thoughtful analysis of the latest releases through review, editorials and more.
