The final of my “For Your Consideration” posts for the 2012 Lammys. I want to thank all of you for bearing with me through this process, I realize that this isn’t necessarily the kind of content you’re out to read each day…
But I know that these posts have been well received within the Lamb, and hopefully I’ve picked up a vote or two along the way.
The final category I present for your consideration is “Best Reviewer”, a category which I’ve been nominated in along with five other bloggers. Sam Fragoso of Duke & the Movies, Ryan McNeil of The Matinee, Andy Buckle of The Film Emporium, Dan O’Neill of Dan the Man’s Movie Reviews, and James Blake Ewing of Cinema Sights.
I’ve included links to a sampling of each nominee’s work, so that you can get a feeling for their style!
Andy Buckle is a reviewer from Australia, and is part of the Film Critics Circle of Australia. He’s also a contributor to Anomalous Materials. He’s currently working through a number of reviews from the 15th annual Spanish Film Festival.
Andy posts daily, and has also received a nomination for most prolific. Check out a sampling of his most recent reviews below:
Ryan McNeil makes a bid for one of the few Lammys didn’t win last year ( dig!), Best Reviewer. Ryan’s Blog is the highly acclaimed Matinee (née Dark of the Matinee), nominated for seven Lammys this year, and winner of 5 in 2011.
With reviews being such a substantial portion of his content, and with so many awards to his blog’s credit, it stands to reason that Ryan is a well-respected and admired reviewer!
Dan the Man! Dan was the focus of my most recent “Follow Fridays” post, he’s one of the hardest working bloggers out there, without a doubt. He has you covered on the weekends with the reviews of all the latest releases, and then circles back to movies that have been out for a while to keep the content cranked up during the week!
Here’s three of his most recent theatrical release reviews:
James isn’t as focused on theatrical reviews, but covers a ton of smaller films and/or older films that people might not have heard of otherwise. His reviews are an eclectic mix of movies including theatrical releases, classics, and indy and foreign films.
I honed in on some of the bigger titles he’s put reviews out on recently, here’s a sampling below!
Sam is a young reviewer and blogger who has already made a number of contributions to many online publications, including Anomalous Material, Cut Print Review, Epinions, Movie-Vault.com, and Never Mind Popular Film. He’s a very active member of the Lamb and a frequent guest on the Lambcast… I’d also just like to take a second to thank him for putting together the official listing of nominees, which I’ve been utilizing HEAVILY as I go through this process. Thank you Sam!
Check out some of Sam’s most recent reviews below.
As with all the categories I’ve been nominated in, it’s an honor to be included in such company.
I work hard every week, trying to cover all the of the biggest new releases, sometimes hitting up to three movies a week. I frequently, but not always, mix humor into my reviews. So occasionally, you may wind up getting an “Auld Lang Cyanide” LOL. But more often than not I try to create a down to earth review that’s going to give you a feel for the movie you’re getting into!
Well, that does it for the 2012 Lammy For Your Consideration posts. Thank you all again for bearing with me, starting with tomorrow’s “Tossin’ It Out There” we’ll be back to your regularly scheduled content!
