7x7 Link Award
Thank you Sati at cinematic corner for giving me the 7x7 award !
Evidently I’m a little late to the party, most of the blogging community I mingle in have already posted their contributions ( :
1.) Tell everyone something that no one else knows about you.
2.) Link to one of the posts that I personally think best fits the following categories: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful Piece, Most Popular Piece, Most Controversial Piece, Most Surprisingly Successful Piece, Most Underrated Piece, and Most Pride-Worthy Piece.
3.) Pass the award on to seven other bloggers.
1.) Tell everyone something that no one else knows about you: A few years back I had a major scare. I was driving home, feeling spent, rubbed my eye which made me momentarily blind for a couple of seconds, and the car swerved into the opposite lane. Luckily nobody was coming towards me from the other direction, so I cheated death! I could have been killed, and so could the oncoming traffic. I guess the lesson to be learned is avoid driving when you’re tired.
2.) Link to one of the posts that I personally think best fits the following categories:
Most Beautiful Piece: Beautiful writing or beautiful images? Screenshots from my review of underrated indie film A Love Song For Bobby Long (2004)
In terms of writing, I still find myself going back to what I wrote about The Double Life Of Veronique
Most Helpful Piece: helpful? Perhaps what I wrote about Malick's Tree of Life, and made a collection of lots of different opinions.
Most Popular Piece: According to my stats on blogger, 2001: A Space Odyssey got the most all-time hits. 2001 is a film that is difficult to decipher, and I give possible interpretations. Lots of memorable screenshots help to increase traffic. Could also have something to do with the rare Kubrick quotes, ahem..
Most Controversial Piece: The Social Network is among my top 10 films of 2010 (10th position), yet I shamelessly bashed it anyway, ha ha (was a poor year for film in my humble opinion)
Most Surprisingly Successful Piece: Three Colours: Blue A lot of fans of the first part of Kieslowski's Three Colors trilogy apparently. It's a pretty sad and melancholic film, darker than White and Red I thought, so the love for Blue in the blogosphere surprised me a little. I have a suspicion that readers liked the beautiful and mysterious screenshots I selected.
Most Underrated Piece: Notes on a scandal. I have read the book and regard the film as among the most overlooked of the 00s. I researched for the review quite a bit, so hopefully is an interesting piece!
Most Pride-Worthy Piece: I keep changing my mind. I'm going to go with The Shining An informative look at Kubrick's masterpiece, with screenshots I'm very happy about as well. A horror film that cannot be "solved", but I include various interpretations anyway.
3.) Pass the award on to seven other bloggers: (Attempting to give the 7x7 prize to those cinephiles who to my knowledge haven’t won the award yet)
Dusty (if ever anyone deserved funniest blogger at lammy awards, he does. For the record, 3guys1movie would be a close 2nd)
I enjoy reading your blogs, and I'm glad to have met you all, I look forward to reading your 7x7 Link Award posts! Happy blogging everyone !
