1001 Movies Weblog

There is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to movie weblogs. You can find the top fifty visited weblogs here, and you can find 600 more you might have missed here. Still not satisfied? Try this list of 600 more!

The popular movie weblogs don’t really work for me. Weblogs like this one, focus almost exclusively on the latest releases, gossip about current actors and directors, etc. What I’m looking for are great movies, from any era, that would make a fine addition to my next movie marathon.

The best weblog I’ve found so far in this category is 1001 movies you must see before you die. It is regularly updated, has lots of good ideas, and is easily searchable. By searching for his four-star reviews, I found Bringing Up Baby. It stars Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant, and its considered one of the best American comedies ever made. I’ve never seen it (or heard about it) and it apparently was the first modern use of the word “gay” in a movie. (there has to be a first time for everything, right?). Sounds a like a great idea for my next movie marathon! Score!
