Joe Neumaier was named the movie critic for The New York Daily News today. The 40-year old Sunday Features Editor has been at The Daily News since 2003. He moved to New York City in 1992, beginning his New York journalism career as a summer intern at the now defunct print magazine, Premiere. ”Everyone enjoys talking about movies. We all have an opinion, and we all want to hear what others like,” Neumaier said in a press release. ”People should know not just what a reviewer thinks is good or bad, but also what may make a movie worth the trip to the theater or DVD store … I look forward to having an ongoing conversation with New Yorkers about this art form that we love.”
Neumaier’s favorite movies from his last five years at The New York Daily News include ‘Sideways,’ ‘The Squid and the Whale,’ ‘Good Night and Good Luck,’ and ‘The Pursuit of Happyness.’ Neumaier has written for The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, the London Observer, the Washington Post and USA Today Weekend, among other publications.
