Blog Post Of The Week: And the Oscar winners should be…

Posted in BLOG POST OF THE WEEK with tags , , , , on February 18, 2011 by Ross McG

We’re going to cheat a little on today’s Blog Post Of The Week and give you a double helping, even if both posts come from the same blog. And what a blog it is. We Rosses thought we were the coolest movie-blogging duo in town until we happened across the CyniCritics, where the writings of Matt and Luke (presumably Mark and John spread their own movie gospel elsewhere) are a regular treat for us.

New year. New series on RvR. From our rummaging through the movie blogs on a given week, we’re going to flag up one great piece of writing you may have missed. To kick us off, here’s a terrific examination of the funny flaw behind a recent feature on IMDb, in which it lists the films a particular actor/director/whatever is associated with. It’s written by the always insightful Univarn at his blog A Life In Equinox, and we think it’s pretty brilliant. Click HERE or the picture above to read it. Continue reading
