Our Liebster Award Nomination!!

Okay, so I’m not huge for blogathons and things like this, but after Grog over at Grog’s Movie Blogs nominated me here, I guess this means I’m destined to actually go ahead and respond to the current thing-doing-the-rounds-of-the-web, the Liebster Awards. Although I’ve yet to hear how one actually wins a Liebster, once you’re nominated (I think I’ve also been nominated by Ruth at Flixchatter, as well as Dell over at Dell On Movies, previously, so hats off to you guys too!), you have a bunch o’ rules to follow…

Blogathon – White Swan/Black Swan

As part of my daily read across the blogosphere, I came across Sati’s latest Blogathon effort, White Swan/Black Swan, in which a character with opposing personality traits is examined. Based on the duality of the film Black Swan, by Darren Aaronofsky, Sati’s Blogathon highlights many great characters who are different in one part of their lives than they are in another. It’s a great idea for a Blogathon, so I figured, hell, why not participate. Therefore, here is my entry.

Blog-a-thon Film Classic Movie Review 

Movie Review – La Dolce Vita

It takes a while to get going, but eventually Fellini’s film gets to you. The juxtaposition of a new, modern sensuality (in post-war Italy) against the landscape of historical Rome, eventually sizzles, with Anita Ekberg’s vibrant sexuality almost Marilyn Monroe-esque in luminosity. La Dolce Vita isn’t the classic I’d expected, but as one of the most important works of Fellini’s career, it’s certainly enthusiastic, charming, and intelligent – if not always enlightening.

Movie Review – Smoke (1995) (Mini Review)

Nice intentioned, yet ultimately decidedly dull ensemble flick that sparkles whenever Stockard Channing or Forest Whitaker arrive on scene; Smoke spends more time away from the landmark cigarette store that headlines the film than they do in it. While the characters are generally interesting, and the movie is well filmed in and around New York City, there’s a lethargy and clunkiness to the script and the performances that prevent it from being a great film.
