New Year, New Name! One Movie, Our Views is now officially The Joy of Movies

January 1, 2022

As of today, January 1st, 2022, One Movie, Our Views (onemovieourviews.com) is officially being rebranded as The Joy of Movies (thejoyofmovies.ca), a name better suited to the current format of the site. This change has been a long time coming, and is just the latest in a line of changes that the site has gone through since it was first launched by siblings John Corrado and Erin Corrado in June 2008 under the original banner of One Movie, Five Views.

The initial idea behind the website was that five people would all see the same movie and each write a review, then forming a consensus. But things happen, people get busy, schedules don’t always line up, and five views stopped being feasible for us on a regular basis. The site’s name was changed to “One Movie, Our Views” in 2013 to better reflect the fact that it wasn’t always going to be five views.

But, as readers or those curious about the site’s name may have noticed, it’s a feature that we haven’t really been able to utilize at all lately. For the last several years, John Corrado (co-founder of the site) has become the primary (and currently sole) writer, and has tirelessly kept it going as a passion project. This will continue unchanged, and the site’s new name simply better reflects that.

So, welcome to The Joy of Movies, a website that was always designed to celebrate just that; the joy that comes from watching and discussing cinema in all its forms. And, if you have been with us since the beginning, we would like to say a sincere thank you, and hope that you will continue to stick around!

For now we’ll leave you with Keanu Reeves, who said it best…
