Everybody’s Chattin’: 5+ Blog Links to Start Off Your Weekend

Happy Friday everybody!! Boy am I looking forward to a long weekend. It’s Labor Day weekend here in the States (for those overseas readers) and I’m taking Tuesday off also to get some chores done around the house. I’m hoping to see The Expendables (finally!) with my buddies on Saturday evening, and do some biking in the morning. In the last few days I’ve been cramming to get my movie pitch done for Castor’s Hollywood Fantasy Draft, which will be revealed this coming Sunday. Hope y’all find time to read it and give me some feedback, ok? Well, let’s get to those fun links, shall we?

  • A few producer participants have submitted their pitch for the Draft event, so saunter over to Anomalous Material movie blog and check them out. Fascinating stuff.
  • Sam @ Banana Oil Movies is listing her top five list of the celebrities for whom you are allowed to “bend the rules.” Surely we all have those. Her smashing picks are more than a pretty face, and I definitely agree with four out of five on her list, especially number 3! ๐Ÿ˜€
  • Andy over at Fandango Groovers has been busy at the movies last month. Check out which movie grab the top spot of his August Movie of the Month blog series.
  • It’s back to school time!!! In keeping with his always-timely top-lists, Peter Eramo Jr. of Magic Lantern Film Blog list his Top Five Movies About Teachers. (Since Hatter’s Everybody’s Talkin’ โ€“ where I stole this post series’ name from โ€” also featured that link, you might already read that post. So why don’t you offer your ownย Top Five Spielberg movies on his Gimme 5 post.
  • My buddy Dezmond never runs out of fascinating polls for his readers. Go and vote for your favorite British Gentleman on his site and while you’re at it, check out who won Hollywood Spy’s Best British Actress Poll.
  • Bonus link: My friend Julian just joined the blogosphere with his brand, spankin’ new movie blog! Let’s welcome him and check out his first review of a London-set thriller called Franklyn that I’ve never even heard of, starring Ryan Philippe, Sam Riley and Bernard Hill.


Before you check the links out, would you share what movie (or dvd) you plan to see this weekend? Cheers!

    1. You have never seen License to Kill?? Oh you’ve got to tell me what you think. No need to tell you how much I love Dalton’s Bond flicks ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Btw, did you see my previous post on him joining Chuck? Not sure if you like that show or not, but I’m so excited for that!

      1. Yeah, I saw that. I don’t really do television, but I’m excited for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Hadn’t seen most Bond films until we started this viewing project. After this one, there will only be one left I have yet to see (I missed one of the Brosnan ones). And then I can blog about the whole thing. Yay!

        1. Hey, me neither, but I make an exception for Dalton!

          Which one of Brosnan you haven’t seen? The only one I like him in is Goldeneye, but the last two were just trash. Looking forward to your Bond post!

  1. Oh, I must admit myself that I really have the most fascinating polls and pics in this blogosphere of ours :):)
    Wait till you see the ones I have in store till the end of the year ๐Ÿ™‚
    And I’m currently having a war between James McAvoy, Rufus Sewell, Gerry Butler and Damian Lewis fans ๐Ÿ™‚
    Thanks for the linky-dinky, sister ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. He..he.. I’m probably the only GB fan who isn’t pestering you, huh Dez? I just don’t have that kind of energy for obsessive behavior ๐Ÿ˜‰ Btw, I asked one of my good friends who adore Rufus to vote, too.

      Can’t wait to see more awesome polls from you Dez.

      1. Actually, I discovered recently that GET LOW played TIFF 2009. Mighta made for a good selection, but I sat TIFF out last fall.

        No, my GET LOW goodness will just happen at a regular cinema. I have to wonder if going to see a movie this close to a whole glut of movies is really such a smart idea….

        1. Ah I see. It’s funny how long some gems took so long to finally get released after their premiere in film festivals. The one I saw at TIFF a long while ago, Romance & Cigarettes, never even see the light of day in theaters I don’t think.

          I don’t know how you could see so many movies in one day, I think 2 is max for me, maybe 3 if I have more than 3-4 hrs break. That’s why I don’t think I can survive as a sole movie critic… with blogging at least you can have other topics than just reviews ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thank you for the link love, Ruth!!! greatly appreciated — and I love when you do this because I get to see what other bloggers/critics are up to, if I don’t already have them on my radar. Great compilation. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!!!
