CRUISIN’ ROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE


I never expected to meet so many cool people when I started this blog. I also never expected to read so many fantastic posts, there really is a ton of talent just within the blogs I get time to check out, which isn’t nearly enough as I’d like.

SO, here begins my ‘series’ with links to posts I have enjoyed recently… Or perhaps not so recently.

Cheers to all the fine people who stop by my little corner of the interwebz. Let us all enjoy our obsession with movies together! πŸ˜€


An older post, Veronika’s thoughts about the Danish Girl were informative and very thorough… she has a knack for making me think

Mark from Three Rows Back wrote an excellent piece about The Temptation of Christ that had me kicking myself for missing the movie when it was on special earlier that day

One of my best bud’s in our little community is Emma, who reviewed the FANTASTIC film, The Witch. Go see it now!

Ruth’s breakdown of Jessica Jones was extremely well-done, and itself a reason for me to check out this series, even though I’m not a fan of superheroes

Β Mark has written about Far From Heaven, introducing me to Todd Haynes for the first time

Tom is writing about roles played by Paul Giamatti, and the second post of that series focuses on his fantastic work in Love and Mercy

I was also going to list a post by Stu of Popcorn Nights but it seems his domain is now offline. Hopefully we will hear from him shortly!

  • EDIT – Stu’s site has shifted to a new domain name. Click here for his thoughts on the Coens’ latest, Hail, Caesar!

I hope you all have had a great weekend; here is Brutus to say goodbye

    • No worries! I figured… I’m learning so much about writing technique (not to mention film) from all these great blogs… it only makes sense to honour some of my favourite posts from the week. I just feel bad for leaving people out! But hopefully I’ll remember to make it a weekly or bi-weekly thing.

  3. Great post πŸ™‚ The best think about blogging is that (or at least most of the time arguably) when you post something you sometimes end up getting a lot of likes and that really encourages one to feel pride in their work πŸ™‚ Anyway, keep up the great work as always πŸ™‚

    • Yeah I’m a bit of a regular there… or was. Hopefully Stu is all good, he really is a fantastic writer.

      And no worries mate! I enjoyed the series about John C Reilly and I’m liking the new one. And you nailed how Giamatti played that role in Love and Mercy, I’m now looking forward to the next instalment, as I haven’t seen him in many films (that I remember anyway!)

  5. Thanks so much for the link love Jordan, and I’m hoping you’d at least give one episode of Jessica Jones a try πŸ™‚ I’m glad to have found your blog man and THANK YOU for all the comments as blog activity has dropped off quite a bit as my fellow bloggers have either stopped visiting my site or just stopped blogging completely :\

      I’ve been checking out your site almost daily for aaaaages, when I first found out about it, can’t remember how, but it was a while back. I like your perspective on film.

        I actually just stared at the screen a bit then, mouth slightly open, thinking “what was I supposed to be reminding Jordan about again…?” Haha! It was about Brutus wasn’t it πŸ™‚ not sure how I could forget that cutie pie!!!! Would he find it demeaning being called a cutie pie? Would he rather be a tough dog?! πŸ™‚

        that setting on your phone does sound good, I need one!!! πŸ™‚

  7. Thank you for including me on the list, Jordan! This thank you was long overdue, but I was completely absent from the site for the past 4-5 months. Anyhow, I am back now and I can’t wait to read what films you’ve been watching and reviewing during this time… πŸ™‚
