Dylan at Blog Cabins is one of the most innovative bloggers around. His site features lots of great series, TGITDNMAR, Stained Glass Cinema, Fletch's Favored Five, Familiar Face - Unknown Name, and Imagining Sequels that will Never Happen (a personal favorite of mine) just to name five. He's won a handful of LAMMYs too. And who can forget CageFest, the Fest completely dedicated to BEST ACTOR (?) Nicolas Cage. If none of this intrigues you, go read Perez Hilton's shit because quality blogs are not for you.

Erich at Acidemic appreciates the classics. As you dive into his archives, you realize that Erich knows more about classic film than a lot of bloggers (and maybe some of your professors). His best post was a very interesting read. Click the link to watch Erich pull something from yesteryear and something out of today's headlines together.

Joseph at Cinema Fist barely made the cut. Haha, just kidding. He's one of the reason's I extended the deadline for the blog-a-thon. I've been reading the Fist since it's opening and although I always seemed to miss his deadlines, I loved his idea of a weekly Film-a-Thon. Sadly, we're all waiting for the resurrection of that one. Joseph is also always willing to participate in other people's events and experiments. His best post is actually part of Lazy Eye Theatre's 12 Movie Meme.

Joseph at Cinexcellence hosted one of my favorite blog-a-thons, the Sight Unseen blog-a-thon which prompted us writers to go buy a DVD (you're welcome economy) that we had never seen before and type up our results, opinions, and experiences. I chose Fatal Attraction. I didn't love Fatal Attraction but I am glad I finally watched it. Joseph's movie reviews are also some of my favorite to read. This morning, I read his Umberto D. review and it captures what makes Umberto important in film history.

J.D. at Valley Dreamin' turned his post in on time. I know because I read it a few days ago! My bad. Another thing J.D. is is fifteen years old. Another thing about J.D., he's a lot smarter than I was at his age. When I was 15, my world revolved around 10 Things I Hate About You. He's watching Annie Hall and I was wondering if Julia Styles was ever going to put aside her tough exterior and finally except her love for the sexy Austrailian also known as The Joker. J.D.'s years ahead of his peers when it comes to love of movies, both old and new, commercial and art house, good and bad. Bookmark his site and begin to worry about this Baby Genius taking your job from you someday.

Keith at The Kinetoscope Parlor is a funny motherfucker. Not one post goes by without making me crack up. Have I ever heard of the movies he's writing about? About 25% of the time. Not bad for as much time as I've spent not in Asia. You should also read his posts on Salo, or 120 Days of Sodom. Gross. And if you haven't answered Keith's 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days challenge: fuck you.

Whitney at Dear Jesus is funnier than you. It's okay, she's funnier than me too. When she's not watching any horror movie she can get her hands on, she's educating me on films made pre-Technicolor. In fact, we're watching Monsieur Verdoux right now. The moment she heard about The Kinetoscope Parlor's 31 Horror Movies in 31 Days challenge was the moment she decided life was worth living. As for her best post, it's really good. How do I know? Because I helped her write part of it. She was nice enough to give me credit too. Ask her sometime for her Top 10 list, she'll drop an education bomb on your face!
