For me, Screened was the premiere film website - entertaining podcasts and video features, good reviews and news stories that interested me. I have to admit that the podcasts and videos were mostly so entertaining because of the personalities involved. Now, after Alex and Rorrie have left, I'm finding myself checking the site regularly, but not clicking on anything and leaving in seconds. Not only that there are no videos or podcasts, but the other content seems bland as well. How about you guys, do you still visit Screened? Do you think that the site will regain its strength or die off?

Nope, stayed around a few days after Rorie left but haven't been since.

I visit "do you visit screened.com" threads more than I visit screened.com anymore.

Ha. Pretty much hit the nail on the head there.

Do I still visit Screened? No.

Have I ever visited Screened? No.

#6 Posted by Landon (4134 posts) -

I forgot it existed.

#7 Posted by crusader8463 (14744 posts) -

No desire to.

#8 Posted by Cloudenvy (5874 posts) -

Not at all.

No more puppies =(

#14 Posted by Mikemcn (7450 posts) -

It's no longer on the GB footer, so no.

#15 Posted by Metric_Outlaw (1198 posts) -

I have checked a hand full times. Not for news or anything, I just visit to see how depressing that website has become.

#16 Posted by RE_Player1 (7946 posts) -

Nope.

#17 Posted by JasonR86 (10007 posts) -

Nope. But I barely visited it before so nothing has really changed. I just barely visit it much less.

#18 Posted by NancyDrewFan123 (38 posts) -

Noooo..... that site is a huge freakin' bummer nowadays.

#19 Posted by Cubic (174 posts) -

I get the feeling Berman Braun are still deciding what they're going to do with that site. I haven't visited it since Rory left, and really there's no reason to since the editorial content is pretty bland. I bet in a month or so they'll rebrand the site like they did with Tested and get some new talent on board. Without any of that whiskey media spark I doubt I'll visit it even then, but there's at least a chance that Screened might become interesting again.

#20 Posted by NoobSauceG7 (1327 posts) -

I went over to see how it was without Alex and Rorie...Not the same in the slightest

#21 Posted by MetalGearSunny (7465 posts) -

Nope.

#22 Posted by Hector (3514 posts) -

Nope not even Tested.

#23 Posted by RPGee (775 posts) -

It's like a country where suddenly, the producing citizens had all left and been replaced by mindless automatons, and the other citizens who used to like the country are leaving too. There's a few who still make good things, but they don't seem like they'll last.

So nah, man.

1-2 times a week, there is nothing there. Is Alex still doing the year of cage?

#25 Posted by ThePickle (4267 posts) -

Nope. Was a big poster and wiki guy over there but there's nothing of value there anymore.

#26 Posted by TOA_Doom (74 posts) -

I tried for a little while, but there is just no entertaining content there anymore.

#28 Posted by Redbullet685 (6198 posts) -

No

Alex left Screened a while ago.

Rory always seemed like dead weight.

What? Rorie did incredible things for Screened considering it was basically only him making content at one point.

#30 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -

I check for new movie trailers.

#31 Posted by Dogma (1006 posts) -

I actually went there just a moment ago because I was curious about the box office numbers for The Avengers movie. Tested have for quite some time been my primary site to check up on stuff like that. But content wise I'm not that impressed.

#32 Edited by MarkWahlberg (4713 posts) -

I mean, it was in essence a cross between IMDB.com and avclub.com, so now I just use those again. Although I tend to ignore avclub's reviews... much like I did with screened. So yeah.

#33 Posted by BaneFireLord (3085 posts) -

Fuck no. I hate making myself cry.

#34 Posted by Kazona (3256 posts) -

I never visited it much to begin with. I just went to check it out, and it looks the same as screened has always looked, minus the video content. To be honest, if I didn't already know that Rorie and Alex left, I would never have noticed a difference.

#35 Posted by Nicked (259 posts) -
#36 Posted by ArmedBear (241 posts) -

I visit rarely. I check to see if it's still up. I just get the feeling it will soon go away completely.

#37 Posted by BulletproofMonk (2734 posts) -

Only the forums.

#38 Posted by Milkman (17906 posts) -

Nope, had the third most wiki points over there but now that site is pretty much dead to me.

#40 Posted by Monkeyman04 (1493 posts) -

Yes, just to see what the members are doing.

#41 Posted by RockinKemosabe (644 posts) -

Yup, I'm mostly there on the threads though.

@ThePickle: We need you for the Community thread! Come back for that at least, just until the end of the season!

........Really?

I really loved the idea of Screened when it was announced. I was heavy into film at the time and it was a great way to merge my love of writing and cinema, but I just couldn't stand the way Rorie and Alex wrote their articles/reviews/features. Humor is a staple of Whiskey Media's (or whatever it's all called now) style, so I would expect some snark and sarcasm when dealing with the more ridiculous shit that goes on. In fact, I really admire it when a writer is honest in writing news-style articles, because too often they feel rhythmic and stale. It just seemed to me that whenever the subject of the article wasn't one of the handful of pre-approved movies, actors, and franchises the staff liked it was subject to endless simplifying and mockery. People make fun of the shit I like, I make fun of the shit other people like. That's expected. I'm not butt-hurt by any means. But there's a point where it becomes tiring and the writer starts to come off as an asshole. I've never met either of them in real life, they're probably cool dudes, but ultimately I never found I agreed with them on anything.

That, and the staff ass-kissery was downright disturbing over there. It's pretty awful on GB, but daaaaaaaaaaaaamn people were on Alex and Rorie's dicks like spermicidal lube...

Eh... maybe for the finale. I made the awful realization with my episode discussion threads that I don't have much to say about specific episodes most of the time.

#44 Posted by cutyoface (568 posts) -

Nope

#45 Posted by rjayb89 (7806 posts) -

They had tons of pictures of ladies until that one guy stopped doing that stuff, so I don't go there anymore.

I know he left but I was wondering if he took his year of cage to a blog or something? You don't just give up on nic cage

#47 Posted by Breadfan (6803 posts) -

Nope. I don't visit Tested anymore either, aside from the podcast.

#48 Posted by WalkerTR77 (1526 posts) -

I used to love Screened but without Alex and Rorie it's dead to me.

BUT THEY WON'T LET IT DIE! It lives on, like a beloved relative reanimated like some disgusting puppet. It looks like the thing you once loved, but it's eyes are dead and it's soul is gone.

#49 Posted by AlexanderSheen (5148 posts) -

We don't talk about Screened here anymore.

#50 Posted by washablemarkers (101 posts) -

Not really. I used to visit it at least once a day before it was sold.
