I have to give a lot of credit to other people out there, because many of them are my inspiration for writing about a mutual love: movies. I started blogging for the first time back in high school, right before I graduated. I didn’t really know what I was doing and I lacked a lot of direction. And although I haven’t discovered or learned all the ins and outs of writing, film, or writing about film, I can say that I have learned a lot in the past 6 years, especially thanks to reading other people’s blogs and getting inspired by their passion, comedy, and interests.
So without further ado, read on and feel free to check out some of these awesome movie sites.
Two Cranky Guys: As their tagline says it, these two guys “wade through the crap so you don’t have to.” These two guys have great back and forth dialogue reviewing the latest film each have seen. It’s entertaining and light-hearted. I always looks forward to reading these guys’ take. In recent news, it appears the duo may be breaking up over the latest movie they saw, Breaking Dawn Pt. 1. Check out the blog for more details!
Anomalous Material: This has become a site I check daily. There are tons of new updates, reviews, and discussions going on that make this site a great place for anyone casually to seriously interested in reading about or discussing movies. There are multiple people who write and run the site, so you get a varied perspective and multiple updates and reviews on current and past movies. I love reading new articles and commenting on them, and I’d recommend this site to just about anyone.
FlixChatter: I don’t remember if I found this blog through Freshly Pressed or just by perusing WordPress blogs, but I’m happy I did. The author, Ruth, posts daily on all types of film-like chatter, from upcoming movie news, to specific actors or films she’s reviewed, to interesting facts about certain movies. It was through her blog that I came into contact with Anomalous Material and the community of film bloggers there. So I am definitely indebted to her. She runs a great blog constantly updated with interesting material–be sure to check it out!
