Welcome to the ninth edition of the Movie Lover’s Carnival, where we feature links from around the web to movie-related articles and blogposts by you, our reader. If you’ve recently blogged about something cinema releated, you can submit your entries at the BlogCarnival Page for inclusion in our next edition.
Jessica Kramer-Teheran presents I Can Slay the Jabberwocky! Disney’s New Alice Serves as a Strong Role Model for Girls posted at DisZine.
We here at VLoveMovies were quite impressed with the new Alice, and especially Mia Wasikowska’s performance. It nice to see we weren’t the only ones!
Eric Maywar presents District 9: Racism and the Stories Told by Drama and by Science Fiction posted at Slight Turbulence.
There’s an old saying (well, not that old, I suppose) that Science Fiction isn’t really about the future, but a way of examining the social and technological elements of the period it is made in. Last year’s District 9 was certainly about more than just a bunch of crustaceans stranded on Earth…
Mike says, “The 1970s were a goldmine for sci fi movie fans. For decades, many a haunting storyline was undermined by less-than-stellar special effects. In the ’70s, however, those decades of creativity were finally met by technology that brought ideas to life in a way that had never been seen before, ushering in the next generation of sci fi. Here, then, are 14 sci fi movies that defined the decade.”
SR presents Do You Think 2010 will be a Great Year for Hollywood Movies? posted at The Movie Blog.
SR adds, “Its been approximately three months of the year 2010, but not many Hollywood movies have gained that much popularity till now. As you throw your focus on the movies released within these three months, they are not so successful as expected.”
Jason says, “Interview: Actor Robert Englund- the Original Freddy Krueger. With Robert Englund busy promoting his memoir and horror fans anxiously awaiting the new Nightmare installment, an interview with the original Freddy Krueger seemed appropriate.”
I must confess that I have absolutely zero knowledge or experience with South East Asian cinema, and about the only actor I know from there is Crouching Tiger star and Bond Girl Michelle Yeoh. I should investigate further…
If you’re looking to kickstart your online cinema education, you can do far worse than consult this list of links.
That wraps up this edition of the Movie Lover’s Carnival. Our next edition goes out on the 7th of May, and entries close on the 5th.
I’d like to clarify our policy on multiple entries: in any given carnival, we feature only one entry per blog or blogger. Extra submissions are held over for the next edition of the carnival, but only if the blogger doesn’t submit any new articles for that carnival. So basically, we will choose the first submission during a given carnival’s entry period and ignore any extra submission you may have made before to previous carnivals. And of course, we do read through every entry before including it; if we feel that it is not sufficiently movie-related, we will not include it.
I’d also like to remind people that you can follow us on twitter where we are @VLoveMovies. We link to all our latest articles as well as cool finds on the net, trailers, videos, news and gossip, as well as live-tweeting movies we’re watching every now and then.
Be sure to submit your entries at the BlogCarnival Page to be included!
