I’m on The Works this evening talking about movie blogs. Here are the websites we discuss:
- Ain’t It Cool News: To movie blogs what The Drudge Report is to political blogs.
- GreenCine Daily: A great, general purpose film blog.
- Metacritic: A site that compiles movie rating from all over the Internet. (Actually, my spiel about Metacritic on the show was something of a rambling digression and John may well cut it, so it may not be mentioned on the show at all.) Also check out Rotten Tomatoes.
- The Movie Blog: The guy who got got his site shut down by paramount for enthusiastically hyping up their upcoming Transformers movie. The post about the controversy is here.
- Thank You For Smoking blog, King Kong production diary, and Garden State blog: Three blogs set up by the directors of films to keep fans abreast of the picture’s progress. Zach Braff, director of Garden State, now maintains zachbraff.com.
- Poster Wire: One of my favorite movie blogs is not about movies, but about movie posters. And any friend of Fipi Lele is a friend of mine. Here’s the post where I learned that the MPAA had approval over movie posters.
Other good movie blogs include The IFC Blog, Movie City Indie, and The Filmmaker Magazine blog. Milo Vermeulen listed his favorite movie blogs here, and I’d encourage readers to do likewise in the comments.
