Everybody’s Chattin: Blog Series Edition

Welcome to the last day of January, folks!

Can’t believe one month in 2012 already gone by… but before we get into my birthday month of February, I thought I’d give a shout out to some of the notable blog series and new blogs I’ve been frequenting lately. Let’s get started shall we?

Trilogy Thursday
I LOVE this idea. Max @ Impassioned Cinema & Claire @ Cinematic Delights team up to discuss their favorite trilogy and they definitely started out with the best… Pixar’s TOY STORY!
Behind the Camera
Max also came up with a new series on his blog, highlighting a filmmaker of choice and he starts the series with one of my faves: Christopher Nolan, courtesy of Matt from Matt & the Motion Pictures
Duo Posts Series
Michael @ It Rains… You Get Wet has been posting a series of parallel reviews with another blogger, examining a noted book and its later film adaptation. The latest edition is on this noir classic The Maltese Falcon.
TDYLF Infographic
One of the most brilliant stuff you’ll find at John’s The Droid You’re Looking For blog is his meticulously-crafted infographics! As the Oscar’s soon approaching, check out his handy Breaking Down the Oscar chart featuring facts and figures about Hollywood’s most beloved statue!
Today’s Minnie Driver’s 42nd Birthday! I really think she’s such an underrated actress, hence my inclusion on this list. One of my favorite roles of hers is Bernadette ‘Benny’ Hogan in Circle of Friends, which happens to be one of my fave movies set in Ireland


Tuesday’s Overlooked Movies
These insightful posts are courtesy of Iba @ I Luv Cinema. Every week she reviews a movie she thinks more people should check out and it’s almost always something I hadn’t seen before. This week’s edition is Little Voice starring an all Brits cast including Michael Caine and Brenda Blethyn.
Looking Back
My matey Scott @ Front Room Cinema has been doing well on one of his new year’s resolution to feature more classic cinemas. This time he’s got help from Sam @ Duke & The Movies in reviewing Jean Paul Belmondo’s trend-setting French New Wave film Breathless.
The Story Behind Film Studio Logos
The King of all great blog series Nostra @ My Film Views has recently launched a great one that gives us an insight into the brand history of Hollywood’s famous studios. The latest one he’s featuring is 20th Century Fox.
Robert Bresson Marathon
Tyler @ Southern Vision is at it again with his directors marathon… offering great insights into off-the-beaten path works mainstream moviegoers likely overlook. This time he starts with the review of Les anges du péché (1943).
Last but not least, I’d like to give a shout out to these new blogs I’ve been enjoying the past few months. Definitely check ’em out if you haven’t already!

Paula’s Cinema Club
Aziza’s Picks
Duke & The Movies
Never Too Early Movie Predictions
Matt & The Motion Pictures
Splendid & Lovely
The Movie Lounge
All Eyes on Screen


Be sure to stay tuned for another classic flix guest review and the follow up to this favorite actors voice list later this week!

  1. Wow, I’m still shocked that you called me The King of all great blog series, but I will wear the title with pride! Great to see so many great links, also to some blogs I hadn’t heard of before.

  2. I agree with T, I like the layout of this post very much 😀

    Thank you for the shout out, it was Max’s great idea so a big thanks to him. We’ve got the next few lined up so I hope you enjoy them as our Toy Story post!

  3. I’ve said it before, and I’ll continue saying it. You are one of the best and most generous of bloggers, Ruth. Many thanks for the link love, and grouping me in with other great bloggers. More fantastic stuff to read.

  4. Ruth, I’m honored by the shout out! I really appreciate the comments that you have left, and our interactions about film through twitter. It has been great to come across your blog as well. It’s great to know someone who is just as passionate about films. Keep up the great work in 2012 and beyond!

  5. @ Iba, Max, Diana – My pleasure!

    @ Nostra – Well you are, you’ve got at least 3 great series going on, that’s impressive!

    @ You’re so welcome John and I take it you’re a fan of Minnie too? If so then I like you even more 🙂

    @ Kristin – No it’s me who appreciate your support, your comments are always so thoughtful, keep ’em coming 🙂

  6. @ Terrence – Thank you! I just thought I’d try something different, thanks for noticing 🙂

    @ Claire – I look forward to your next Trilogy post!

    @ Michael & Paula – Awww you guys are so awesome. I learn so much from both of you, it’s amazing how you both are as well-versed on classic cinema as you are on contemporary films!

    @ Raul – You’re welcome, man! Glad I stumbled to your blog, keep up the great work, your reviews are always so well-written!

  7. Thanks for the Link Love Ruth!

    I always admire the fact that you create a space for other voices, which I think is one o the reasons that your comment section gets so many replies. Keep up the great work!

  8. How did you make those type of post Ruth???
    I want to know….that is awesome.

    Love the image…sometimes dreams do come true because mine is about to come true on May 🙂

  9. Thanks so much for featuring our little looking back series my friend. I have another great coming this friday from our friend Kevin. He does like to guest huh?

    Here is to a most excellent February my buddy

  10. …funny you should mention Minnie Driver. I recently saw her in Barney’s Version where I thought she played the role quite well. But on the whole I think she’s devoid of any talent whatsoever. Every time I see her crop up in a film my heart drops.

    Thanks for highlighting some new blogs worth checking out. I’ll have to get browsing! 🙂

  11. @ MVP – You’re most welcome, thanks for your support here as well!

    @ Stevee – Swanky? Why thank you, I’ll do future Everybody’s Chattin’ this way from now on 🙂

    @ Castor – Thanks and same to you, my friend!

    @ My pleasure, Matt. I’ve been enjoying your blog as well!

    @ Novia – If you want I can give you the code, Nov. I made ’em in Dreamweaver and then copy and paste the code to this post under the HTML tab.

  12. @ Scott – Yeah, I’m so thrilled to have Kevin aka Jack guest posting all over my fave blogs. Look for his review later today in fact, for sure I’ll be checking out your blog as I’m making the rounds.

    @ Dan – Oh no, well we have to disagree on Minnie then Dan. I think she’s so talented and I’ve seen enough of her films in various genres. Even her American accent is very convincing and she always comes across as fun yet sympathetic on screen.
