Before I begin, I’d like to applaud the excellency of the second ever Comedy Awards presented on the Comedy Central network. It was relatively short, consistently humorous, and had a plethora of entertaining hosts with enjoyable material. But the man I look to here is Don Rickles, who was given the Johnny Carson award. Rickles gave the most heartfelt, sincere, touching, loving, and beautiful speech I’ve heard on an awards show or really, any other platform. I look forward to tuning in next year.

Now onto our weekly articles

The Cannes film festival is rapidly approaching. Bonjour Tristesse provides a preview of the extravagant festival.

I forgot how splendid and lovely Ruth’s site was and still most definitely is. Check it all out here.

I’m always on the watch for inventive sites. Three guys and 1 movie, is a location with a diverse group of cinematic perspectives.

In case you’ve been wondering, like I have, Univarn from A Life in Equinox has taken a bit of a break from blogging. He expresses why he’s taken an absence and reevaluating the movies.

Fogs, not pronounced FOGS like “it’s foggy outside”, writes a lukewarm review for The Avengers by giving the film only an A++

I’m desperate to see the small little independent film Margaret, that was miraculously revived by critics across the Internet. Aaron Weiss gives a review.

The Southern Vision talks “unforgettable” cinematic experiences.

I was initially intrigued by the film Cafe De Flore when Ryan McNeil of The Matinee gave it a glowing review on his site. Now Andy Buckle is raving about it. Here’s his column.

Antagonists of The Avengers are chastising the film for showing action sequences in the city that never sleeps: New York City. What’s your take on. Jessica’s excellent article.

The last link will be going to myself, sorry everyone. Very quickly: for those who are interested in participating in my blogathon check out the post that went up yesterday here.

Lastly, a thank you to Kevin Mulcrone for the new With A Little Help From My Friends format and all you’ve done are continuing to do for the site.

Thank you for reading. Have a nice Monday everyone.
