Logan’s Run: Why There is Mileage left in the Wolverine story

wolverine

After three instalments of the X-Men franchise and a largely disappointing solo outing, is there much left for audiences to get worked up over as the titanium claws come out once again on July 25th for The Wolverine? In short the answer is a resounding yes, as the series looks to take a murkier, in depth approach that aims to encapsulate the iconic anti-hero in a way that previous attempts have failed to do.  Continue reading

Tossin’ It Out There: Plug Your Blog

plugOk, everyone, here we go! Once again, Fogs flirts with folly, as I decide to live on the wild side and open this thread up to people link dumping and plugging their own sites!

In light of my second straight nomination for Best Community Builder, and stolen from following 3Guys1Movie’s last “Hump Day Have Your Say” topic, where they courted links and requested blog recommendations, I felt it might be a good idea to do some community building and let bloggers have a chance to tout their own sites. Hopefully, it will give us all a chance to find some more blogs and get to know each other a little better.

Could this blow up in my face? Yesssss, yes, it could. LOL :D I can easily think of three or four ways this could wind up in disaster.

Here’s the catch! If you drop a link to your blog (and you can be as verbose as you like in trying to entice visitors) YOU HAVE TO BE ON YOUR HONOR YOU WILL VISIT ANOTHER BLOG POSTED HERE! (Preferably one you’ve never visited before.) I think it’s only fair, and if we put that in place, it will up the chance of people actually visiting others, and seeing some actual referals out of this!

Now, for those of you who don’t blog, this will be a fine opportunity for you to find other blogs and see what they’re all about. Feel free to comment on any comments that you like, but please, let’s be supportive, ok? ;)

So! Let’s hear it. Tell us about your blog. Drop a link to your favorite article, or your homepage. Tell us why you started blogging, or why you keep blogging, or what you hate about blogging, it’s up to you. Dont say anything, and just dump a link! That’s fine too. For everyone that reads and visits, let’s show that FMR Community spirit by taking a minute and clicking through and visiting some new folks!

Ok, that’s it! Let’s have at it! Plug your blog!

Small Roles, Big Performances Blog-A-Thon: Hal Holbrook, “All the President’s Men”

Our buddy Ruth Maramis over at Flixchatter has a blog-a-thon going on right now, focusing on smaller roles with big impact.

“The idea of this blog-a-thon is to… Shine a spotlight on the ‘unsung heroes’ if you will, the overlooked performers who add so much richness & entertainment value to the film no matter how brief their appearance is, but yet they don’t get the credit they so deserve.”

Took me awhile to latch on to one to write-up, especially seeing as my first choice was taken (Damn you, Cap! :D ), but I found a good one, I believe, with Hal Holbrook in “All the President’s Men”. It’s a small, but pivotal role in one of the greatest movies ever. The true story of how two Washington Post reporters exposed corruption in the Nixon White House and toppled an American President. The role of “Deep Throat”, though small, gives the film at least 50% of its intensity…
