Community Links & News: What Have You’ve Been Watching Lately?

pixar inside out joy and sadness

Ahh yes, the incredible¬†summer weather makes for a perfect day to … stay inside and watch a movie! ūüėȬ†On the blogging front, summer is usually a slower time for me. This is where you come in.¬†I’m on the look out for something new to get into. Is there¬†a movie or television show that you’ve recently enjoyed or can’t stop thinking about?¬†How is¬†True¬†Detective season 2 coming along? Do you have a favorite movie of the summer so far?

Here are some things I’ve been watching lately. Of these, I’d easily recommend the first two movies to just about anyone.

Inside-Out-Anger Poster‚ÄĘ Inside Out:¬†¬†I¬†skipped over¬†Pixar’s last few movies but with all the positive reviews on Inside Out I wanted to check it out in the theatres. Glad to say I really enjoyed it! Pixar did a great job of pulling off the concept. My favorite emotion is Joy (Amy Poehler). I started out not caring much for Sadness (Phyllis Smith) but I liked how the script taught us to value her. Which Pixar movies do you think are unskippable?

Community Links & News: Five Not So Random Things I’m Looking Forward To This Year

Tom Hardy In Mad Max: Fury Road

Yawn! I feel like a bear coming out of hibernation. Truth is, this blog’s inactivity over the last month is mainly because I wasn’t feeling inspired to write anything. I felt like I hit a wall and needed to consider¬†if there was a future for this blog.

I’m grateful for your friendly support and words of encouragement. A belated and sincere¬†Happy & Healthy New Year to all you gentle readers and fellow bloggers!

I’ll keep this post short and sweet.¬†Here are some things I’m looking forward to in 2015, some are just based on my gut instinct.

‚ÄĘ Mad Max: Fury Road. To be honest, I’ve never seen a Mad Max film. But Tom Hardy looks so bad-ass in the above photo and I’m a sucker for gritty, action-packed post-apocalyptic movies.

‚Äʬ†Batman: Arkham Knight. ¬†I don’t have a next gen system yet. Maybe this is the year? Arkham Asylum and Arkham City are the best Batman games out there and I’m glad that Rocksteady Studios is making¬†this installment of the franchise.

‚ÄĘ Game Of Thrones Season V. ¬†Hands down my favourite show on the air. Can’t wait to see the adventures that await Arya, Tyrion and Daenerys this season.

Community Links & News: Most Anticipated Movies

Jake Gyllenhaal Nightcrawler Movie Poster

A number of blogs are covering their local film festivals, giving us a first look at some movies I’m highly anticipating when they¬†get a wider release (or depending on where you live,¬†it¬†might already be in theatres).

Here are several movies that might interest you:

The biographic flick The Imitation¬†Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch as a WWII code breaker looks to be a gem. Here’s a great review¬†over at Cinekatz.com.

To the dark underbelly of LA,¬†Jake Gyllenhaal plays¬†a photographer arriving at crimes scenes before the police, turning his photos into quick money. Here’s a spoiler free review of Nightcrawler from The Review Club.

Community Links & News: WordPress Comments Going To Spam

X-men babies

With the help of some fellow bloggers, I’ve discovered the reason why my comments on other¬†WordPress blogs have not always been¬†showing up is because they are automatically going to the spam folder.

This has been an on and off problem for about the last month. Since I spend a fair amount of time reading and supporting other blogs with comments it’s been a bit¬†discouraging.

WordPress uses a spam filtering service called Akismet. I’ve been working with them to resolve this issue.

The good news is that my comments have been getting through the last couple of days. But my previous comments might still be in your spam folder.

Here’s how you can help: Check your WordPress blog’s spam folder if¬†my comments are in there and unspam them.

Apparently, Akismet is a learning engine, so unspamming should help subsequent comments get through the filter. On the flip side, I think leaving the comments designated as spam might give it the wrong idea. 

To help the unspamming, I’ve put together a list of some of the posts I think I may have commented on.

In any case, these are all friendly and quality bloggers, well worth your time to check out their posts and add them to the list of blogs you follow.
