HitFix Launches Six Second Reviews With Moviefone's Leatherman
Too busy to watch a long online video, or just have a really, really short attention span? The latest venture out of Los Angeles-based entertainment news site Hitfix is perfect for those with mere seconds to spend on figuring out if that latest movie is worth investing time into. Hitfix said it has partnered with Russ Leatherman, the co-founder of Moviefone, for a new feature called Six-Second Reviews. The new feature features--as advertised--six second reviews of current films in a very (very) short video. HitFix says it is distributing the reviews both through Hitfix.com, as well as its mobile properties and YouTube, Hulu, and elsewhere. Leatherman is best known as "Mr. Moviefone" and is the trademark voice behind the phrase "Hello and Welcome to Moviefone!".
