For most film bloggers, there’s probably a little niggling fear of doubt when that blog is launched – who will read this? will anyone care? am I talking to myself. I’m going to hazard a guess, though, that there blog nightmares did not plague Peter Bogdanovich at the outset of Blogdanovich. Yes, that Peter Bogdanovich, […]

The Criterion Contraption

Posted by Brandy Dean July 16, 2013 0 Comment 6711 views

We all remember Julie who cooked her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking and we’re all familiar with bloggers who are working their way through 1001 Movies to See Before You Die. But it was only yesterday that I discovered The Criterion Contraption and Matthew Dessem’s noble goal of watching every title […]

Posted by Brandy Dean July 15, 2013 1 Comment 11919 views

The Man on the Flying Trapeze is a nice little movie blog from David Inman, focusing on Hollywood classics from the years 1925-1935. We’re sold! And you get exactly what’s advertised at The Man on the Flying Trapeze – reviews, pictorial essays, and examination of Hollywood classics from a guy who clearly has a genuine […]

The Stop Button

Posted by Brandy Dean July 12, 2013 1 Comment 5507 views

The Stop Button isn’t exactly your average bear of a film blog. Rather than reviews, so to speak, The Stop Button is made of responses. As the operator says, “Reviews have a structure (or should) and people either are paid for them, get free swag to produce them or are writing them pro bono in hope […]

Classic Film Freak

Posted by Brandy Dean July 11, 2013 0 Comment 4191 views

Classic Film Freak, run by the charmingly nom-de-plumed Orson DeWelles, is a nice little site devoted to Hollywood in 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Being something of freaks ourselves, I gotta say that Pretty Clever Films is a bit jealous that this site name was taken. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for a steady stream of classic Hollywood content […]

Journeys in Classic Film

Posted by Brandy Dean July 10, 2013 0 Comment 3836 views

Journeys in Classic Film is a solid little classic movie blog from one young classic Hollywood obsessive. Kristen provides a steady stream of classic movie reviews (plus, she takes suggestions) and applies her very own “Ronnie Rating” based on how many Veronica Lakes a film earns. Plus, there’s movie and Hollywood related book reviews, regular tours […]

Okay, I know this movie site of the day seems like a no-brainer, and if you’re in the (vast?) majority who do and have been reading RogerEbert.Com for the past few years, it certainly is that. But, just in case there’s a few stragglers, left – you really should be checking out RogerEbert.Com. Roger Ebert, […]

They Shoot Pictures Don’t They?

Posted by Brandy Dean July 8, 2013 1 Comment 11953 views

It’s all auteurs all the time at the marvelous film resource They Shoot Pictures Don’t They? Based in Australia and run by cinephile extraordinaire Bill Georgaris, the TSPDT is currently in a transition phase as it’s migrated from an old look to a new look. The good news is that the old site still stands during the […]

The Dissolve

We’re so on top of what’s hot in the movie sites world here at Pretty Clever Films, we’re going to tell you about a film website that doesn’t even exist yet. Yeah… word to yo mama. Chicago based The Dissolve is set to launch sometime this summer. Currently, the (amazing) team over there are teasing […]

Movie Morlocks

Posted by Brandy Dean June 11, 2013 0 Comment 4505 views

Movie Morlocks is the official blog of TCM (i.e. The Greatest Cable Channel Known to Man) so you know it’s good, good stuff. The Morlocks provide thoughtul, detailed and oh so informative posts on topics ranging from a brief history of the Telefilm to the adventures of John Wayne to an overview of the films […]
