Monday Links (06/06)

Since last week's post I have watched one film. One. That was X-Men: First Class the other night. Granted, I have been working lots (every day this week) and engaging in a number of social gatherings.

So, my week has been pretty boring, on with the links to some awesome work from my fellow bloggers:

Univarn @ A Life in Equinox commiserates 'The Death of Slapstick'

Kevyn Knox gives 10 Reasons why 'Dazed and Confused' is the Coolest Movie Ever at Anomalous Material. Still at the same site, Castor reveals 10 Criminally Overlooked Movies and Paolo reviews The Beginners.

Bonjour Tristesse reviews Attenberg, a Greek film in the Official Competition at next week's SFF.

CS @ Big Thoughts from A Small Mind discusses why Hollywood is Losing the Battle to Piracy.

Thomas Caldwell @ Cinema Autopsy has written a great article about the Stanley Kubrick classic, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Nicholas Prigge @ Cinematic Romantico reveals through an incredible 37 reasons why Elizabethtown is Currently His Favourite Movie Ever. I have never seen it.

James @ Cinema Sights is currently working through the 30 Day Movie Challenge. He also made time to review Pier Paolo Pasolini's masterpiece, The Gospel According to St Matthew.

Stevee @ Cinematic Paradox reviews a PTA classic (which could mean any of his films). It's Boogie Nights.

Anders Wotzke of Cut Print Review continues to entertain me with his Video Reviews. This week it's X-Men: First Class.

Sam @ Duke and the Movies reviews Chinatown and Old Boy this week. He really liked one of them.

Alex @ Film Forager reviews Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall his Past Lives, a film I rather liked.

Jack @ Jack L. Film Reviews shares his thoughts on The Current State of Action Films

Tom Clift reveals the upcoming line-up at the AWESOME Astor Theatre in St Kilda.

Anna @ 5plit Reel gives us a 'close-up' of the work of David Fincher. Word.

Finally, The Film Locker, the Podcast collaboration between Mad Hatter of Dark of the Matinee and Simon Columb of Screen Insight aired its first episode last night. It was awesome. The pair are going to be focusing on a different director every episode. This week it was Marty Scorsese, and Goodfellas. 


  1. Andy! Muchos thanks for the link! Glad you liked the show - Hatter and I are recording today so there is more to come! Are you gonna try for the free DVD?


  2. Thanks for the inclusion Andy!

    I'm starting this up tomorrow - I'm sure you'll name will be in there :D

  3. Thanks for the link Andy, I really appreciate it!

  4. @ Simon, yeah definitely. I knew a couple of the answers but I haven't emailed them in yet :-/ Looking forward to next week's episode!

    @ Sam - It better be! Just kidding. Would appreciate it, buddy!

    @ Jack L - Of course, great work as always!

  5. Wow massive list this week. Thanks again Andy!

  6. You're welcome! The coming weeks might be a little slimmer, so I thought i'd make it a bit bigger than usual.

  7. Thanks for the link! And I gotta say, the blogroll is looking better...much more clean!

  8. Thanks for the linkage, my friend. I must stress that it may be in your best interests to not actually ever watch Elizabethtown. I'm reasonably certain it's not as good as I think it is.

  9. @ Stevee - Yeah, I think it looks better also. You're welcome!

    @ Nicholas - Haha. You make some great points, and Kirsten Dunst is cute. Maybe some day!

  10. Thanks for the linkage. I guess it's my fault for posting the review before Beginners went wider, but French women deserve all praise. Seeing you Basterds post, I'm sure you agree.
