"Movie" magazine reborn as a web journal

On Dave Kehr's website there is a piece of good news: 

Now available online is "the inaugural issue of a new publication, Movie: A Journal of Film Criticism, the successor to Movie, the print journal that was edited, designed and published by the late Ian A. Cameron from 1962 to 2000."

Both the original Movie magazine and the book series Movie Paperbacks include some of the best writing on the cinema. I'm looking forward to a continuation of that great tradition.
