Teddy's Takes is a biweekly (well, usually biweekly) newsletter of all things film-related. Each review is e-mailed directly to your e-mailbox as exclusive, paid-only content. For subscribers in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C., area, you get the added bonus of access to free preview screenings of major motion pictures well before the films are released to the general public.  In just the past year, I have hosted previews to such movies as Captain Marvel, Us, Breakthrough,and the upcoming Long Shot with Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron. I routinely co-sponsor previews at the Cinemark Egyptian 24 at Arundel Mills Mall, AMC Columbia, and occasionally, AMC White Marsh 16, and the Landmark Harbor East downtown.

Who am I? A devoted film lover and a trained journalist who has reported on the entertainment industry since 1997. I like to think of myself more as a movie fan than a movie critic. I try and write from the average audience member's perspective, and I hope that shows through.  If you are interested in seeing a sample issue, please send me an email at durginfilm@gmail.com

For those looking to subscribe, the cost is $20 for a one-year's subscription for people who live in the Baltimore-Washington area who want access to my preview screenings and $12 a year for non-Baltimore/D.C. area subscribers or those who live in the region but do not attend the previews.  Two ways to pay:

1) Send $20 (Baltimore-D.C. subscribers) $12 (non-local subscribers) via www.PayPal.com directly to durginfilm@gmail.com


2) Mail a $20 or $12 check or money order payable to:
