Thank God it’s Friday!
And Fridays bring another movie blog recommendation from yours truly. Up this week? French Toast Sunday!
This is a bit of “Instant Karma” for Lindsay and the folks over at FTS. At the beginning of the week, they were kind enough to recommend my blog in one of their posts, and I stopped in to check out the backlink. I was instantly impressed with the clean, colorful look of the site, and I wound up reading that they had recently changed their layout!
So. Quid pro quo opportunity? Great new look to plug? Impressive blog with accompanying podcast? A “Follow Fridays!” was a no brainer! Plus, they had a post on their front page recommending Troll 2! Hell ya!!
French Toast Sunday is headed up by Lindsay, but they have 6 contributors in total. They do a podcast which is 80+ episodes strong now. It’s a good show… I got to check out a couple of back episodes this week. From their description “Friends Will, Marc, Jess, Rob and Lindsay get together every week to bring you their opinions, top 3 lists and overall self-serving input on film.” (Compare that to the (title pending) podcast where our input on films serves the greater good of humanity. LOL)
Here’s FTS’ preview post of what’s coming out in the month of February.
Each week, they’re hitting fresh recent reviews, here’s a couple of their latest – “The Woman in Black“, “Man on a Ledge”, “Red Tails” (Guest Review) and “Contraband“. What’s cool about their reviews is that if more than one of their staff has seen them, they’ll split the review and each put their say in (you can see an example in Contraband). That way you get a second opinion.
They also utilize a cool ratings system. Check out this grid they do:
I’m just gonna say it. That is WAY too much work for me! I have a hard time deciding if something is a B or a B+!! But it’s definitely cool, and opens the door to plenty of debate and discussion.
So anyways, French Toast Sunday is a SUPER impressive blog. You can tell they’ve really got it going on. Do yourself a favor and check it out!!
