It’s time for another edition of Blogs I Enjoy, a feature in which I spotlight a couple of great movie blogs I follow.
Cinematic Corner is hands down the best-looking movie blog I subscribe to. It’s run by Sati, and she keeps her blog filled with gorgeous graphics, coherent design, and animated GIFs that support her writing rather than distract from it. She goes far beyond just throwing a bunch of screenshots into her posts; rather, every image fully looks as though it belongs alongside everything else. A rare quality. Fortunately, Cinematic Corner is not all flash no substance, as the writing is certainly solid. Sati singles out performances and scenes she loves, writes reviews, and has a slew of other recurring features running. A blog well worth taking a look at. And another.
If there’s a movie blog out there with a more intriguing name than Lime Reviews and Strawberry Confessions, it’s certainly not on my radar. This is the home of Mette, self-described “part Dane part German”, who’s a firm devotee of Hindi cinema. As such, you’re likely to hear about films you might not have heard about otherwise if you follow her writing. That’s not all she talks about though; there’s just as much discussion about Hollywood movies, classics, and films from lots of different places in time and space. She has an ongoing project where she’s making her way through the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die list, and recently started a blogathon on Oscar snubs with the awesome name The SONSOFBITCHES Snubathon. Mette writes with her own unique voice, and it’s a pleasure to read what she has to say.
