Blogging Community Highlights: 1/14 to 1/20

It’s time for another end-of-the-week wrap-up with this collection of Blogging Community Highlights! We have a pretty good selection of reviews and lists this week, and even an ongoing movie awards event to vote on.

  • Be sure to vote in The Focused Filmographer’s second annual Red Web Awards! The polls close on Sunday night, and there are a lot of close calls.
  • Mike & Tom from Front Room Cinema compiled personal top five lists of their favorite Studio Ghibli films.
  • Nostra at My Filmviews added a new entry to his terrific “The Many Faces of…” feature by taking a look at Robert De Niro’s legendary career.
  • Ruth from FlixChatter asked a very good question: “Whatever happened to the planned Martin Luther King Jr biopics?
  • Sam from Duke & The Movies shared his thoughts on Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, a movie I am really looking forward to seeing.
  • Kevyn at Anomalous Material listed the 10 Most Heinous Oscar Snubs — a list that is already provoking a great discussion.
  • Max from Impassionedcinema selected 50/50 as an Editor’s Choice pick, which also happens to be one of my favorite movies from 2011.
  • Matt & the Art of Motion Pictures wrote about one of last year’s most overlooked movies, Win Win.
  • Dan from Dan the Man’s Movie Reviews has been writing about many recent theatrical releases, including Mark Wahlberg’s Contraband.

How about you guys? Did any of these articles catch your eye? Do you have anything else to recommend?

      Anytime Ruth. I imagine that we are probably at the same temps over here, plus we got a major snowstorm to boot! Oh well, I took advantage of the poor weather and stayed in for a movie night. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for link, Eric. I’m glad to see you enjoyed 50/50 as much as I did. In that hotel, I could’ve chose that or Real Steel. Now having seen both, I made the right decision with 50/50 that night.
