Blog News 11/30/10/Blogging Around

With the final month of the year coming.  I have some news relating to my Auteurs series.  The second part of my Auteurs series will come next month for Darren Aronofsky.  With expanded reviews for Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler coming along with a review of The Fountain.  I will release my Aronofsky essay after I see Black Swan.  Also in anticipation for Black Swan, I will also have an expanded review of The Red Shoes by Powell/Pressburger for its recent Criterion release.  I will also have expanded Criterion reviews for Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited, Steven Soderbergh's Che, Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, and Lars Von Trier's Antichrist.  For my third Auteurs series, I will do Todd Haynes in anticipation of the airing of Mildred Pierce this coming winter in 2011 on HBO.  As for Holiday movies, that is something that might be in the works depending on what films I choose. 

In the world of NIN.  I have recently purchased the recent reissue of Pretty Hate Machine though I don't have any immediate plans to review it.  I probably will get around to posting and re-editing many of my old NIN reviews this coming January and February since I have already finished rebuilding my music catalog.

For the world of fellow bloggers.  Here are some blogs I want to mention.

For the dueling Rambo marathon, that I've been following and been having run reading. The reviews for the most recent film have been a great read. One by Edgar of Between the Seats was definitely enjoyable as is the contribution from Bill of Bill's Movie Emporium who is also finishing up the Filmspotting Disney Animated Movie Marathon that is set to conclude. His reviews for Bolt and The Princess & the Frog are definitely worth reading.

Another blog that I recently discovered is The Final Girl Project whose review of The Last Starfighter got me swept into a world of nostalgia.

That's all I'm going to mention for now.  Until then, this is thevoid99 signing off for the month of November.

Thanks for the link love. Your blog is terrifying in its approach to reviewing -- each post is thoroughly researched and ridiculously well-written. Such a huge juxtaposition from my short, clumsy reviews.

Thanks for all the comments on The Final Girl Project as well. I appreciate the feedback and discussion immensely.

You're welcome. After all, we bloggers need to stick together and steer people away from trolls.
