Happy Friday, everyone! Today’s follow friday movie blog recommendation is “Cinematic Corner“, the blogging home of our friend Lady Sati.
Cinematic Corner is approaching its first anniversary, and going strong. It’s got a ton of cool content and style to spare… click through to read what she has to offer!
Cinematic Corner is a very unique looking blog (in a GOOD way). It uses this kind of a… washed out color scheme, which gives it a very stylistic visual feel to it. It’s also very visually oriented… Sati uses a lot of .gifs and pics throughout her posts. It’s impressive, it really is. I don’t think that someone can stop by and not think “Cool” and “Oh, awesome!”. There’s a reason – a good reason – it was nominated for a Lammie for “Best Design” this year.
The content there is top-notch as well. Sati tends to choose cool, bad ass topics to write about and highlight, such as the latest “Scene of the Week”, which highlights the battle between Patricia Arquette and James Gandolfini in “True Romance”, or this Wednesday’s “Soundtrack Wednesday” post that featured the Centurian’s “Bullwinkle, part 2″ from “Pulp Fiction”. Her contribution to Flixchatter’s ”Small Roles, Big Performances Blog-A-Thon” was Laura Linney’s Annabeth Markum from “Mystic River”, a choice that literally made me say “Ohhhhh…” out loud. It’s a consistent focus on these really kind of… edgy/dark but awesome topics that contributes to the noteworthy tone she has going on there.
In additions to reviews (Check out “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Compliance” for recent examples), Sati also comes up with a variety of different types of posts. Check out her “Appreciation” series, where she spotlights a star, puts together a mini bio and some trivia, and then shares a bunch of cool pics of said performer. Have a look at her latest ones, Marion Cotillard, Michelle Williams, and Idris Elba! Saturdays are for television posts. In keeping with her cool as hell tastes, the last two I saw written up were “American Horror Story” and “Six Feet Under“. And as mentioned earlier, she does “Soundtrack Wednesdays”, where she focuses on the music of movies, and her “Scene of the Week” series, where she’ll take a certain scene, summarize it/point out why its noteworthy, and then highlight it with a series of screencaps and .gifs. Her last few there were from “Take Shelter”, “Se7en”, and “The Dark Knight”. Winners, all.
Cinematic Corner is a very, very cool place to visit. Everytime I go there my thought is, “This blog is %#$&ing awesome”. It’s got style to spare, and then some, and her taste in movies is pretty incredible. Sati draws a bunch of comments, so people are obviously responding well… You should check it out, too, and see what all the buzz is about!
