Thursday's Things to Click On (2/18/10)

It's been nearly two and a half years since the last time I did one of these posts, but it's high time I brought it back. Though I still do a fair bit of movie blog reading, I've found that being the so-called shepherd of the LAMB has taken some of the fun of discovering new sites and great posts away from me - it's much harder to discover things when they're always brought to you first, and I have less and less time to read (and write) posts these days. Those aren't complaints, but mere facts mixed with a smidge of nostalgia, I suppose.

This re-introductionary post (sure, 'cause that's a word) is somewhat ironic in that I'm not exactly going outside the box. All are from friends and LAMB members (though that's likely to be increasingly harder to avoid, not that I mind), and they're also even readers of this site, but a) it's a good place to start and b) I enjoyed all of these posts greatly:

* First, how often is it that you have the chance to have a truly great time at the theater (quality of the film you're seeing notwithstanding). Here, Plus Trailers' Tom Clift regales us with the "greatest cinema experience of his life."

* Rachel of Rachel's Reel Reviews says "I Love You" a lot on Valentine's Day.

* Travis over at The Movie Encyclopedia is also a Survivor fan. Here, he steps outside his movie-reviews-only realm to interview the first Survivor: H vs. V castoff.

* Finally, a total cheat, as this one is directly from the LAMB. I probably shouldn't specifically call anybody out, as I don't want to offend anyone else, but Jason's writeup on District 9 illustrated why he's one of the funnier movie writers I get a chance to read, even if most of the time he's writing about movies I don't care about. Maybe you could start up an "A Movies" website, Jason? C'mon, we know you've got the time.


And for those that care, have no fear: the Survivor live blog is still coming in a few hours.

I was wondering when and if you were going to bring this one back. Then again you do have to deal with a lot so it's totally cool. I'm actually really glad you picked Tom and Rachel's. Tom's post is hilarious to read and it makes me want to go to the screening up here in the Northwest even more. As for Rachel's its really funny and that last line is actually funny to me.

Oh and thanks for the shout out with the survivor thing. I'm pulling every string i got to make it a continuous thing and I'm glad its getting noticed.


And Jason's article is hilarious but that's like saying water is wet. Jason's always really funny.

Aw shucks, I'm blushing and shit. Thanks, Fletch (and Travis).

I don't do an "A" Movies blog cause everyone else does and plus it's much more entertaining reading about a guy going crazy watching horrible movies than reading about a guy enjoying good movies. In other words, I write better when it's about crap. I'll leave the good movie reviewin' to you guys.
