I'm not trying to neglect you all...


...but I have written a post for another blog. In fact, I've written a post for Flickchart: The Blog, after being invited to guest post there after the other day's Random Horror Throwdown.

So, if you want to read my thoughts on the difficulties of being a cinephile AND a genre fan, or if you just want to see how many titles I could name drop in seven paragraphs, click on this writing right here and go check it out.

In the meantime, I'll be back tonight with the 20th(!) Midnight Movie of the Week. If that's not exciting enough, here's what You Tube calls the "best fight scene of all time".




Have a good one, folks!

Lol I posted that same video on my blog about a month back. I love it so much! Glad to see I'm not the only dork who's dug that ka-rayzay fight.

Keep an eye out for ya, Stingray.

I thought your post was great! =D

Genre fiction makes up the bulk of my reading as well, and I am well aware of the perception that it is easier to write because it comes with a formula. As genre lovers know, however, the formula is a huge challenge in itself.

It takes real skill to use pretty much the same elements everyone else uses and still come up with something completely new. That's why there are so many genre duds. But you're right that when a great genre book or movie manages to transcend its formula, it doesn't go on to get the recognition it deserves.

PS--Not that I've felt "neglected" or anything, but I think you might like to know that the voting round of my Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie Smackdown, which you did seem to be enjoying, has finally begun! ;)

So what you are telling me is that you left us for a younger, sexier blog and then came back to us bragging about it?

What next? Is this post kind of like telling us that you are you are going to call us the morning after and then never call again?

From Midnight with love will always be known to me as the blog that got away...
