The Film Yap
Movie critic, DVD reviewer, writer, commentator
Indianapolis, In
A film geek at heart, Joe Shearer ‘s love of cinema began in the drive-ins of Ft. Bragg, N.C., in the early 1980s, then Indianapolis theaters in the mid-to-late 80s, cutting his teeth on films like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellhole, and Chopping Mall, Brewster’s Millions, Red Sonja, and D.A.R.Y.L.

Joe began reviewing movies for INtake Magazine in April 2004 and wrote weekly reviews tirelessly as the magazine shifted to Indy.com the Magazine, until November 2008. In March 2009 Joe and Christopher Lloyd created The Film Yap, looking to create a permanent, high-quality movie review presence for Central Indiana. An avid freelance writer, Joe has also written for Indianapolis Monthly, the Indianapolis Star, Lifestyle for Men, MovieMaker Magazine, Trap & Field, Servo, and North, maintained a parenting blog at Indy Parent Source and a parenting column for the weekly Current in Noblesville. Joe is the voice behind The Film Yap on Twitter @TheFilmYap.
