Across the Blogosphere ...

I haven't created a post like this for a while. But, when there is some good stuff out there, you blow the horn and let people know. Taking a leaf from Andy Buckle's 'Links' Page, I'll first link to posts you may have missed that I have written before telling you others I recommend. A huge bunch has been written as analysis-posts for Man, I Love Film with reviews of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Guard, but exclusively on Screen Insight I have covered the American Pie trilogy: American Pie, American Pie 2 and American Pie: The Wedding.

Elsewhere, Ryan - of The Matinee - has covered extensively on the Toronto Film Festival. Last year I used his TIFF coverage to help me choose my own choice films from the London Film Festival - indeed, this influence will continue this year...

Kai has also been a busy-bee with his own coverage of the TVIFF festival in California. I believe that during his time covering this festival he managed to nab an interview with actor Mike Wiles (Fight Club and Magnolia to name a few)!

The Kid in the Front Row always delivers with some great content and, only recently, he collected together a bunch of articles he has written on The West Wing. I know he loves it, but alas, I do not. Which reminds me, Jess from Insight into Entertainment also placed up her Top 5 West Wing episodes. I don't like The West Wing - let's just clarify that again.

I have been absolutely loving the LAMBcast of recent months - specifically due to the Rants and Raves of the Week. In fact, if I tune out with the 'main feature', I will skip ahead to the rants and raves. The passion, the frustration ... brilliant!

And finally, Ben Cooper at Anomalous Materials wrote a brilliant write-up about his love for John Williams Schindler's List score. It is incredible and I only wish that more people wrote about soundtracks ... that reminds me... I really should do another Incredible Soundtrack post ...

Large Association of Movie Blogs


  1. Thanks for posting this! You introduced me to some great articles and a couple new blogs.

    Love your site!

  2. Thank you for the mention, Simon. I'm glad to have been an influence! Some great articles listed here. I really want to read your review of Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy, but its not released here for ages. Excited for it, though!

  3. @Sammy - thanks for the kind words. I am now following your site too! Any links which you found particularly interesting?

    @Andy - Indeed Sir, you are an influence! The TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY review does not give away spoilers. I try and separate the stuff I do on the CLASSIC COLUMB and REVIEWS as analysis and spoiler-free reviews respectively.


  4. I feel honoured to be a part of the return of A-T-B, and of course get a healthy dose of civic pride seeing my city's skyline as the image of choice.

    If it weren't for the fact that it happens at such a prime time for you mate, i'd suggest you come across the pond and join the mayhem one year. perhaps down the road if you find yourself on sabbatical or such.
