Duke & the Movies is the blogging home of Mr. Sam Fragoso.
It’s safe to say that Sam is an accomplished and well-respected blogger. Duke & the Movies took home this year’s Lammy for “Best Running Feature” for his series “Battle of the Directors”. He was also the runner-up for “The Braniac Award”. Additionally, his blog also received nominations for “Best Reviewer” and “Best Blogathon”. Hell, even his “For Your Consideration” poster did well this year, making it (I believe) to the semi-finals in the FYC Poster tournament.

What’s going on everybody? Today we have the long-awaited return of “Follow Fridays!” The blogging schedule has conspired against me turning my attention to these posts for a couple of months now, but if you thought I was going to be content to pass the torch to Bubbawheat, think again!
Today’s “Follow Fridays!” features Mark Walker’s “Marked Movies”. Mark is a blogger from Glasgow, Scotland, and he’s had his blog open since the beginning of this year. Since then he’s reviewed in the neighborhood of 250 movies. Pretty impressive, if you ask me. Click through to read more about it!
