James at Rants of a Diva loves a lot of things. Classic film, pop music (including ABBA), celebrity gossip, and everything in between. If you like club bangers and Criterion Collections, go read the Rants of a Diva. James had some trouble narrowing down all his posts down to a single "best" so I'll let J.D.'s vote make the final decision. Plus, I'll be honest, I thought it was a funny post and any time Alley Cats Strike gets a reference, consider me on board.

mB at A Blog Next Door just sent me a link you're gonna like. It's the "20 Things I Learnt from Pixar Productions" list. Number 10 is my favorite. I'm a recent reader of ABND and mB's love for "Pushing Daisies" and Tina Fey and distaste for "Gary Unmarried" and Sarah Palin has made me a fan for life.

Glenn at Stale Popcorn puts me to shame. A couple months ago, I started a "Films I Don't Ever Want to See Series." I watched three of the five films and then completely forgot about the list. Why does Glenn put me to shame? He started a seried called "The 100 Greatest Movie Posters" and finished. One-hundred posts. Are you kidding me? Glenn also started a series that has everyone talking lately. It's Black + White Friday and it pretty much blows my mind.

Brian from Dear Jesus hates Christmas (and Sufjan Stevens). This guy is hilarious. I'm not just saying that because he shares a blog with my fiancée. And even though I've yet to make it to one of his movie nights I hear they're damn good. Brian's blog started out talking about religion and slowly morphed into a movie blog. Go read his thoughts on the best Christmas movie.

Derek from Son of Double Feature is a friend of mine! We met during our MA program (in Cinema Studies, of course) and both started blogs around the same time. When he's not helping us struggling screenwriters with our movies-to-be, he's hyping us on all things Batman. I actually told Derek to send me the link for this specific post. It's great. Think you've read everything there is to read that's anti-Juno, go read this post.

Adam from DVD Panache is an important part of the movie blogging world. A supporter of He Shot Cyrus from the beginning, Adam featured my blog on his Friday Screentest, among tons of other great writers. Even the post link he sent me featured a bunch of different blogs, including Cinema Styles, Sergio Leone and the Infield Fly Rule, Lazy Eye Theatre, and more. Support Adam and DVD Panache; he's supported you, even if you don't know it yet.
