Desert Island Classics – Movie Review World

Desert-Island-Classics2

Whilst I eagerly await your blogathon entries (please feel free to join in, click HERE for details), I wanted to shine some light on my long running Desert Island Films series, and more importantly the people who joined in and made it so much fun to do. I am therefore randomly visiting the archives and re-posting a few of the lists with some added kind words. I present to you; Desert Island Classics…… You may have read all of the lists so far, but I hope you won’t mind seeing a few of them again, and who knows, you may even find some new blogs to read.

At number 86 on my list was Allan from Movie Review World. He runs one of the best looking and most complete sites out there, offering everything from reviews and news to festival coverage and interviews. Allan is a fantastic writer and has been hugely influential in a new upcoming venture of mine so I’m forever grateful to his expertise. So please, read on for his film choices, and more importantly go now and check out his magnificent site. You won’t regret it.

Blogathon Participants Required! Apply Within…

recommended movie poster

Since I’ve been away for a while, I decided to start a little blogathon to try and reacquaint myself with everyone, and hopefully meet some new people along the way.

There are so many films out there, and so many bloggers we all follow, and from time to time someone reviews something which we haven’t seen and they make it sound great. Then we tell them how great it sounds, and that we will put it on our ‘to watch list‘. Yet we never get round to watching it. The good intentions are there, and maybe we even went and bought said film, but still haven’t watched it. I want to try and get people watching something new, and more importantly something recommended by a fellow blogger. Therefore I present to you the ‘Recommended By‘ blogathon!

What I’ve Been Watching…..

did you miss me

Wow, 7 months have passed since I last posted here. As many of you will know, my beautiful daughter Ava was born on Halloween and I’ve had no time for anything really except marvelling and obsessing over her. Now she’s in a sleeping routine, she is letting me watch a few movies here and there. I worked so hard to start this blog and build up a community, and I feel very lucky to have done so. Whilst I hoped the blogging world would just stand still and mourn my absence, I am guessing it continued and thrived and I’m hopeful there is still some kind of audience I can tap into. But we shall see, so I’m here to test the waters and try to entice some people to keep checking this little place out. The caveat is that WordPress and the UK had some ISP issues, and whilst that appears to be fixed, I have lost all the sites and people I followed/was followed by, so please shout out below, drop a like or let me know if you’ve seen anything I’ve reviewed so I can find you and your site again!

My old style of reviewing will have to be revamped, and in a time-saving effort my posts will now be in a new format. I’ll be talking briefly about some movies I’ve seen and posting them all in one big post. A lot to read in one go I admit, but since I probably won’t be posting more than once a week, this way I’ll get more reviews out there, and then have more time to check out all your sites and get back in the game.

Thanks to everyone who emailed/tweeted/facebooked me whilst I was on hiatus, your messages and support was much appreciated. You know who you all are, and I’m hoping this time I’m back for good. Until baby #2. Anyway, enough rambling, and here are my thoughts on a few films I’ve seen in the past few months.
