Monthly links from the blogosphere: November
Everyone in the blogosphere is reviewing the new 007 film. Sati at Cinematic Corner thought Skyfall was better than Casino Royale. Tippi from On The Screen Reviews was a little disappointed by Skyfall, and prefers Casino Royale. Jaina at Time Well Spent and Ronan at Filmplicity gave Skyfall 5/5.
Nostra is not a big fan of Wes Anderson, but loved Moonrise Kingdom, I have similar feelings about Anderson's latest. Perks of Being a Wallflower is another film he loved, which I'll be posting a mini-review of myself this weekend.
Nostra also was kind enough to help me by making my new banner above. Thanks man! I'll soon be posting a guest post of Nostra's favorite hip hop songs.
Alex Withrow asked How Do You Define a Horror Film? (A great question that started an interesting thread. Worth reading if you are into horror). It could be my favorite article on his blog this year.

Thank you for the link! I may actually be the only one who prefers Skyfall to CR :)ReplyDelete
@Sati: You're welcome! I definitely prefer the one-liners and humour in Skyfall, but I think the action scenes, non-stop suspense, and love interest elements are superior in Casino RoyaleDelete
Great links here to Skyfall reviews, you should check out mine if you get the chance.ReplyDelete
@vinnieh: Thanks, I shall take a look when I get the chanceDelete

Thanks for the link! It's been interesting to see all the different takes on Skyfall; there's a great analysis of the movie as metafiction on Anomalous Materials.ReplyDelete

Thanks Chris! Been awhile since I visited, I like the change in banner.ReplyDelete
@Bonjour Tristesse: You're welcome! Nice that people like the new banner, it certainly is more inviting than that boring green rectangle ( :ReplyDelete
Thanks Chris for the linkage,recently I'm planning to write many kick-ass Hitchcock lists,and that one is just a warm-up indeed.ReplyDelete
@David: You're welcome! The reviews have been a bit lukewarm towards Hitchcock biopic(expect praise for the acting). I may skip it, and just watch some good old Hitch movies instead, so your lists should come in handy. I'll take a look soon.Delete
