All About Ryan’s Reviews

Ryan’s Reviews is a page for reviews of low- and no-budget films (budgets less than $1M), music, and craft beer.  If you are interested in submitting your work, please email subject: review my movie/music/beer.  I generally review everything (pretty much) in the order received, but if your movie is going to be distributed and you send it to me before the street date, let me know and I will move it up on the list to try and get it reviewed prior to release.

I’m a low budget filmmaker that has written and directed various short films, a cable-access TV show, two feature films (one that was actually completed, one that fell apart*), and has worked on other people’s low-budget films as a grip, assistant director, editor, composer, actor, and probably some other stuff too.  I also have been an avid beer geek for years and a homebrewer for many years as well, with intentions of opening a brewpub; here’s the site for my beer  If you’re interested, here’s my IMDB page: and here’s my own production company site (with info about my films):
