Howdy boys and girls.
Just wanted to quickly bring a couple of posts that I did that you might be interested in to your attention.
While our buddy T, “The Focused Filmographer” was on vacation, he asked for people to write guest pieces so he would have content for the week. I was more than happy to oblige, but I had a little fun with it… since he was going to New York, I decided to reflect on “Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan”. LOL. She’s a real beaut, Clark.
I also made a contribution to “The LAMB Devours the Oscars”, which is the Large Association of Movie Blogs’ ongoing series devoted to covering all of the Oscar nominees. I drew the short straw and got “Best Short Documentary” and didn’t have anything to offer. I didn’t feel it was right to write on something I hadn’t seen. Through the magic of twitter though, our buddy Dylan of Man I Love Films indicated he wouldn’t mind if I took his spot. And so I wound up writing about one of the best films of the year, best picture nominee “The Tree of Life”.
I’m glad that these posts wound up running relatively closely to each other… I think they provide a nice contrast to each other, and represent my varied interest in movies well. If you’re looking for a good read, if you’re a fan of either of these movies, or if you’d just like to show your support for me and/or the friends of FMR, I hope you’ll check them out!
