There are definitely things to write about, the execution of which involves more sleep and preparation than I have at the moment.
So I'm taking a moment to pimp all the writing I've been doing at Celluloid Moon, which finally seems to be leaning in favor of the Blogspot site (as much as I like the look of the Wordpress site, the lack of any real code flexibility without having to pay is a bit of a drag). In about a month's time I've posted 15 movie reviews and a small handful of essays - something I was never able to accomplish in my yearly Hail Horror! movie reviews. Strange...
Anyway, I'm not quite where I want to be yet in terms of how the blog will run, but I can say I having a great time watching movies again. I have a couple references I've been using to choose what I see, and the stuff coming up after the Oscars will be very different than the "catch-up" films I've been focusing on for the past month.
So if you like movies, come on over and check out what's brewin'. Comment, suggest, agree or disagree, and in the next few weeks besides a slew of additional reviews and Oscar stuff I'll be introducing a few new features, including some video clips.
In the meantime, please sample my thoughts on Oscar Ennui, or how I intend to fill in the "blind spots" in my movie knowledge.
Or, if you prefer, check out some of the following movie reviews:
VICKY CHRISTINA BARCELONA / SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE / KUNG FU PANDA / THE MINDSCAPE OF ALAN MOORE / JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER / DOUBT / LET THE RIGHT ONE IN / SKINWALKERS / MAMMA MIA / THE READER / MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D / INGLORIOUS BASTARDS / SEMI-PRO / MAN ON WIRE / BREATHLESS
