MOVIE BLOGGERS ASSEMBLE!!
Want to know the moment I realized how much A.M. kicks ass?
It was the moment when I asked myself, “Hey, why don’t I ever go to Slashfilm any more?”
I’m sure I’m not exactly breaking news here. Anomalous Materials is one of the most major film blogs going. Words like ginormous and megalarge come to mind.
But that certainly doesn’t mean that people should stop recommending it, does it? And if this feature is going to serve to shine the spotlight on the various member of our community? Cap deserves his day in the Sun, too.
Damn straight, he does.
“Since its humble beginning in November 2009, AM has been featured on the IMDb homepage, Slashfilm, and IndieWire among others. We have been nominated Best Overall Film Blog by Total Film and routinely make the Reddit homepage among other achievements. We fully expect to continue growing at a rapid pace and become one of the world’s top online film community.”
With a contributing staff of 65, A.M. is a constantly updating machine. Movie News, Movie Reviews, Editorials, Top Tens, Discussion Threads. You name it, Anomalous Materials has it all in spades.
You can check out the thoroughness of their news area here, or their film reviews, but I would particularly like to draw your attention to their Fantasy Movie League, which is kind of like a fantasy football league, except with movies. I begin kicking everyone’s ass in it tomorrow at Noon. Stop by and see!
But something that cannot be overlooked is the contribution of A.M.’s head honcho to the overall movie blogging community. Not only is he a top notch Movie Newsman, ferreting out the types of info you want to know about, and then reporting them to you with the right blend of fact and humor, not only does he tend to a huge stable of contributors and commenters on a blog the size of a small planet, Castor Troy also makes his way out to an enormous number of blogs, FMR included, and takes his time to actively participate in their commenting communities. Further, I can speak from personal experience when I say that Cap generously shares his knowledge and experience with others, and has created a number of great resources for bloggers just starting out.
For those about to Rock, Cap.
We Salute You.
