There's some mind-reading going on here (or maybe this has been in
the air for a while). I was just planning to create my own site
incorporating my own extensive reviews/critiques and contributions
from anyone interested. However, a KinemaKlub production seems much
more sensible to me, especially given the need to centralize the text
already written. I'm excited about the future result.
