John and Brandon, I have a number of comments to make based upon several things the two of you have said, but before I get to that, I wanted to formally introduce you to my friend Adrienne, a fellow film buff and someone with whom I have seen quite a number of films (you would be proud, John, of how often she goes to the Dryden- she puts me to shame, for sure). Her taste in film is wide-ranging, but she particularly likes animation and horror films (feel free to correct me if I am wrong, Adrienne). Her blog is watat.com- she doesn't write exclusively about movies, but on a fairly regular basis she will. I wanted to point you to a couple she has written recently: http://www.watat.com/archives/2010/01/movies_that_hav.html and her most recent post: http://www.watat.com/archives/2010/02/up.html, about the movie UP. I don't know much about your other tastes, Brandon, but John, you may be interested in the blog in general, which is about librarianship and books and life.
Adrienne, I have links to John's blog (Chasing Pictures) and Brandon's (storm and stress) on my profile page in Blogger. I thought I could bring you into the conversation at large, as I think you'd be interested in a number of the things we're discussing.
