Resources for finding Film Revews

Many of the library databases allow searches for reviews in addition to scholarly articles.  Often you can limit your search by using the document type "review". Combine this with a search using the movie title, and this should retrieve film reviews. It is helpful to know the film's release date since most reviews are published after the release.
