The domain change went smoothly and Google seems to have recrawled all my pages successfully, now hopefully it doesn't take too long to build my page rank back up again.
I was hoping to be able to say that I reached 300 followers, but can't quite yet, it has been stuck on 299 for about a week now.
My Spotlight on Hungarian Films has run its course. There are still a few films that I want to add, but so far I haven't been able to find them, so it may be awhile before I'm able to do that.
For October, I will be focusing on films related to and part of the New French Extremity. Though not a true film movement, these films are categorized as such by having unflinching scenes of extreme sex and or violence. So you can either take that as a warning, or as an invitation for what I'll be watching and reviewing this Halloween season.
I'll also be trying to track down some of the Foreign Language Film entries for the 2012 Oscars and hopefully find some time to attend a few screenings at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
Random Links of the Month
Tyler of Southern Vision posted a brilliant list of his 100 Essential Foreign Films, it reminded me of quite a few films I still need to watch.
My favorite blog discovery of the month thanks to Never Too Early Movie Predictions is dzong2's Foreign Films. A blog predicting and covering the Best Foreign Film Oscar entries. He doesn't post very often but has been providing incredibly well researched summaries of the likely candidates for every country since 2007.
MsMariah's Space Blog-yssey posted some interesting photos from her trip to Dragon Con 2011
Cherokee of Feminizing Film doesn't post very often, but every post is an awesome one. This month she lists her 100 Favourite Films, an impressive and eclectic list full of surprises.
Ryan of The Matinee had some amazing and in my opinion unrivaled TIFF 2011 coverage. With a couple dozen movie reviews and daily notes. I wish I had the time to do the same for VIFF. Maybe next year.
I am very jealous of Cheri from I Love Italian Movies who was lucky enough to get to attend this year's Venice Film Festival, check out the photos from her wonderful trip.
Steven aka thevoid99 began his fascinating, and for me, nostalgia inducing series of posts on the year 1991 in music, over at his under appreciated music blog The Void-Go-Round
The Angry Lurker, my long time reader, biggest supporter, and most frequent commenter (even if the stats in the sidebar say otherwise) gives Rise of the Planet of the Apes a 4 star review.
