Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination

sunshine-blogger-award

When I woke up today, I was informed that about a week ago, I was nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award by Monday Morning Movie Quarterback. So, thank you very much, buddy! He and I had some great discussions about the Raimi Spider-Man films recently, and it’s great to hear that he enjoyed those discussions as well.

Okay, so, for the first ten minutes, or so, after I was notified of the nomination’s existence I was left wondering what a Sunshine Blogger Award was. Basically – it seems – that it’s a way for bloggers to give you a ‘pat on the back’ for the creative and positive writing you’ve done.

The following is a quick review of Louis Leterrier’s Grimsby.

Grimsby is the newest gross-out comedy starring Sascha Baron Cohen. Louis Leterrier – known for his work in the Transporter-franchise and with The Incredible Hulk-solo film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – directed this action-comedy, but it won’t go on his highlight reel.

The following is a spoiler-free review of Adam Wingard’s Blair Witch.

This new Blair Witch was a pretty big surprise this year. For quite a while Adam Wingard’s 2016 horror film was titled The Woods. And – I have to admit that – I wasn’t really excited for The Woods. Not only was the Blair Witch reveal a great surprise, it also got me interested in the film immediately.

I’m not a huge fan of the original film, but I enjoy it for what it is, and I really liked the idea of making a new sequel to the horror cult ‘classic.’ I was especially excited when I heard about the plot of the film.
