So, I haven’t blogged in years. And since I believe in the blogingsphere, one year is equivalent to a human week, that is actually quite an accurate statement. I hope that after my school’s April vacation I’ll be able to blog a lot more. The end of a HUGE term schoolwork-wise, I believe my school work load will lighten up and I’ll be able to get back to rambling on about film. In the meantime, I’ve done some searching and found some other great movie blogs that you should check out to supplement your need for daily movie news. Of course, none of them can compare to my own succulent thoughts about movies, but I guess they’ll have to do for the time being.
For the classic film lover: http://cinemaocd.blogspot.com/
Not exactly a, get to the point right away sort of blog, it’s more like reading a bunch of chapters of a movie novel, but for those interested in classic film it’s actually really interesting. If you’re looking for more than the quip about a film, this is a good read for a chunk of time.
For the overweening critic: http://www.moviemistakes.com/blog
This blog is actually really funny. It’s not really an opinion blog, and to be honest I find it too harsh to really take seriously, but it’s humorous if you’re interested in building a terrific argument against your most hated film.
For the movie goer: rottentomatoes.com
Okay, so this isn’t really a blog, but it’s a GREAT resource for all those who need to get out to watch a movie. It’s a collective of a ton of different reviews of the film by actual critics, and in audition, has a poll of those regular-Joes, folks just like you and me, and whether they liked the movie or not. It’s a great face-quip website, which some snippits of information, and an overall opinion statement (much like this blog right here).
For the ADHD Blog Reader: http://www.indiewire.com/blogs
This blog is a collection of other articles from all over the web. Great for those who get bored with reading one writing style for too long, and who want a bunch of second opinions.
For the blog reader who just wants a great blog: http://www.slashfilm.com/
This blog isn’t anything in particular, it’s just kind of a mash up of everything. Easy to read, really visual, nicely written, it’s really just a fantastic blog overall (don’t get too attached. I’m coming back soon too you know).
For those just want reviews: http://www.filmsy.com/
Just a straight film blog. Has a little bit of news thrown in there, but is mostly a blog full of movie reviews for those who want all of the other unnecessary crap cut out.
Well, those are just some suggestions. I’ve read all of these for at least three days, but if you want to look at some others (that I haven’t personally reviewed) THIS site is great. Just remember folks, I’m coming back in a few short weeks. We’re taking a break, but we are not breaking up.
