Monday Links (25/06/12)

Hey everyone. It has been a while since I posted a 'Monday Links', but because of the Sydney Film Festival I have just been very busy and just had no time. For a full recap of my SFF coverage, you can find it here. Since then I have caught up with a couple of new releases, Snow White and the Huntsman and Brave, and checked out Chinese Take Away, scheduled to screen at next month's Spanish Film Festival. Today, courtesy of the wonderful posts put together by several bloggers, I posted a list of 85 Film Facts About Me.

It has been an exciting week, with the 2012 LAMMY Award winners announced at the Large Association of Movie Blogs. Congratulations to all of the winners. Man, I Love Films took out Best Blog this morning.

On with the links:

Alex takes a look at the 10 Most Badass Movie Scenes of All Time and keeps us up to date on the editing process of his short film, Earrings.

Nick was really chuffed with Seeking A Friend for the End of the World.

James Blake Ewing, winner of Best Movie Reviewer at the 2012 LAMMYs, writes an article about a very intriguing film, The Man Who Planted Trees.

Stevee, who tied for runner-up for Best Blog, celebrates her 900th post by sharing her Ten Blogging Tips.

Though Sam and I didn't agree on Safety Not Guaranteed - and I am almost alone here - his review is well worth a read.

Brian writes a lovely review on behalf of Brave, Pixar's return to form.

Dan Fogarty encourages everyone to see Monty Python and the Holy Grail. He has a point.

Blake, the editor-in-chief of one of the web's best film sites, Graffiti With Punctuation, reviews the Australian drama, Dead Europe, which screened at the Sydney Film Festival.

Tom Clift has been reviewing films from the fest. too. Here are his thoughts on one of the highlights, Killer Joe.

Corey watched some fantastic (and some not so fantastic) films this week.

Like myself, James, who runs an excellent site called The Cameraman's Revenge, revealed 100 Film Facts about himself today.

Ryan and Stevee discuss Brave on Episode 61 of The Matineecast.

For New Zealand readers, Sam McCosh, who runs An Online Universe, has all you need to know about the Auckland programme of the New Zealand Film Festival. She has supplied her picks, and provided links to her reviews.

That's all folks. Have a great week.


  1. Thanks for the link, kind sir.

  2. :D I do have a point. "Holy Grail" is one of those no brainer recommendations, you know? Even if you wind up not connecting with it, its a very significant movie pop culture wise, so people should at least be versed in it!

    Thanks for the linkage Andy, always appreciated. And congrats!!

  3. Thanks for the links Andy, you're the man! And congrats on your LAMMY!!

  4. Great links this week. I want to watch 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' again now.

  5. Thanks a lot for the support everyone, and you're welcome. Monty Python is a no-brainer Fogs, you're absolutely right. I feel like watching it now too :-)
