Thank God it’s Friday, people!
Today’s “Follow Fridays” is our buddy Eric, over at “The Warning Sign”.
TWS is a great spot for movie discussion. There’s a healthy commenting community (as many of you know!) and a great opportunity to comment on a wide range of classic films, primarily due to Eric’s decision to select a large number of important/influential flicks, watch ’em, and chronicle the journey.
His “Movie Project”.
“Due to the overwhelming success of my initial Movies Project, I decided to do a second round for 2012. This time around I put a greater emphasis on directors I am not familiar with, but I also tried to compile a mix of different genres and eras. This will be an ongoing project with the finish date being sometime this year.”
I can vouch for the fact that the first “Movie Project” was a tremendous success, I enjoyed reading them, went back and read a lot of the archived ones, and they all drew out a lot of participation from visitors. I was happy to see he decided to continue it again!
So far in 2012’s version, he’s looked back at “Vanishing Point”, “Blow Out”, “M”, and “Modern Times”. As you can see, he covers a diverse selection of classic movies to spotlight. It’s very enjoyable to follow along.
He also reviews current movies, and has a “Poll of the Week” for people to vote on/debate. You’ll also find reviews of video games, books… and beer. Yep, beers.
Eric has done a great job creating a fun site to visit and has seen a nice commenting community develop. He does a great job of promoting discussion via the comments, and is always very responsive! Some of his “Movie Project” movies needed a little more love than he gave them, but I straightened him out ;)
So if you’re looking for a great new blog this weekend… and you want to be sure your leisure time is well covered (movies, video game AND beers :D) head on over to “The Warning Sign” and check it out! Tell him Fogs sent ya! :D
