Reader Recommendations: “Rob Roy”

Hey, what’s going on everyone?

Today, I’m finally launching a new series that I’ve been procrastinating on for a long time, “Reader Recommendations”.

In the little over a year that I’ve been blogging, I’m constantly coming across movies I haven’t seen. Or movies I saw a long time ago and lost in the memory banks. In my various exchanges with everyone, there are recommendations being made frequently… I should check this out, I should check that out. And oftentimes, LOL, I respond with an “I will, I will”.

Well, one way to move that forward is to actually post about them when I watch. Turn the viewing into some “content”. And this series is designed to do just that. I’ll be asking a couple of questions of whomever recommends the movie, give them a chance to link back to anything they may have written on it, and then I’ll share my thoughts on the movie in a review!

First up is our buddy Le0pard13 of “It Rains… You Get Wet”. Le0p did a great piece on this movie awhile back, a very thorough, insightful analysis. I realized that if the movie could inspire that kind of a post from someone, maybe I shouldnt underestimate it. Perhaps I should circle back and check it out.

Under the Radar?: “Trick ‘r Treat”

“Trick ‘r Treat” is 2007 anthology style Horror movie, written and directed by Michael Dougherty.

Despite an extensive tour on the film festival circuit, it was never given a theatrical release. Exhibit W in the case that Hollywood doesn’t know what the hell they’re doing. Fortunately, the movie has been released on DVD and Blu Ray, so the general public wasn’t deprived of their opportunity to see this great movie.

It’s pretty much a perfect movie for the holiday.
