First off, congratulations to Fogs Movie Reviews for reaching 500,000 Page views this week. He’ll be the next Google in no time, you’ll see. Speaking of goals, congratulations to Mike at MikesFilmTalk for hitting 300 followers. Also a big shout out to Tim from Tim’s Film Reviews who celebrated his birthday this week, so head on over there and say hi.
Alright, let’s get started.
We were introduced to some pretty interesting Movie Trailers this week. Flickering Cinema takes a look at The Way, Way Back starring Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell. 3 Guys 1 Movie looked at The Purge and This Is The End in their Tremendous Trailer Trash Tuesday segment. Rhinos Horror posted Matt Damon’s new sci-fi Elysium and birthday boy Tim analyzed the trailer for the 2013 remake of Carrie. Luke’s Film Blog also got into the action by using the Carrie trailer to pose a question to everyone, Have we had enough of Horror Remakes yet?
Speaking of Horror remakes, Mark Hobin from Fast Film Reviews wasn’t too keen on Fede Alvarez’s version of Evil Dead, but we did have some positive reviews from both Cinematic Flashback and An Odyssey Through Film.
So you really want to be scared huh? Well Eric over at the IPC reviewed Canada’s gift to the world – The Changeling, The Cinema Monster reviewed Suspiria, Meera Darji barely made it through The Possession and Last Road Reviews examined a few Horror posters from the year 1974 in their Horror by Year article.
What, you like posters? Well head on back to Ryan’s recently revamped website Rhinos Horror, and after you’re done gawking at the new layout, have a gander at his post The Art of Midnight Marauder. It included posters for Drag Me to Hell, the Exorcist, Alien and The Shining.
Well it seems Alien was a popular topic this week because Mr.Rumsey gave it a glowing review over on the Bishop Review. Austin is showcasing Sci-fi films and facts all week, you can check out Catalin from CinEnema’s review of Virus there as well. Stanley Kubrick was another hot subject this week as Nostra from My Filmviews explored both The Shining and Room 237. Keith gave his opinion on Room 237 as well on Keith and the Movies.

Fernando from Committed to Celluloid was a very busy guy this week. Not only was he a Hipster for a Day on my site reviewing Side Effects, but he was having some fun over at Rorschach Reviews with his Blogger Interview. I answered a few questions as well this week, you can read my interview here.
The Movie Jail ‘Relay Race’ is alive and well – Eric from the IPC released Joss Whedon and jailed Dane Cook, Brian from Hard Ticket to Home Video released Ruben Fleischer and jailed Kevin Smith, and I released Jennfier Lopez and jailed Vince Vaughn. Damn that felt good too. Speaking of Eric and Brian, check out both these guys in this weeks Isaacs Interviews. Lots of hilarious banter going on there.
Over at Head in a Vice, Tyson continued his IMDB Top 250 Films Reviewed with three superb articles. Kim from Tranquil Dreams talked about Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Mark Walker from Marked Movies reviewed Sin City and Chris from Terry Malloy’s Pigeon Coop discussed Rosemary’s Baby.

There were plenty of promising reviews this week, both Wordschat and The Cinema Monster reviewed Jurassic Park 3D, each giving it high praise! Java Girl’s Life reviewed 2012′s The ScapeGoat, Dan the Man’s Movie Review’s praised 1978′s Days of Heaven, Film Phage enjoyed Spring Breakers as well as Tom Cruise’s new flick Oblivion and Cinematic probed David Lynch’s Lost Highway.
While some films had positive feedback, others weren’t as lucky. Mr. Rumsey’s Film Related Musings wasn’t impressed with Julia Leigh’s Sleeping Beauty and Dan the Man’s Movie Review’s put a beat down on Robert Redford’s Lion’s for Lambs.
Feeling a little nostalgic? It Rains…You Get Wet, continued their running segment A Theatre…a Movie…and a Time showcasing 1974/Earthquake/Huntington Park Warner Theatre as well as 1974/The Towereing Inferno/Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre. Some really great content here, have a look.
