MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION PAGE: Talking Films
WEB ADDRESS: www.talkingfilms.net
BLOG'S DESCRIPTION: The site talks about movies from all across the world.
MY REVIEW: The author is an Indian, Prem Shashi. His writing reflects the fact that English is not his first language. It’s very, very good…very verbose, and with just occasionally the incorrect – but closely matching – word. Occasionally some missing punctuation – but nothing too distracting.
Enda Walsh is critically known for his work on the film Hunger. He is right now in line to write a screenplay based on the life of Nazi extermination camp commander Franz Stangl, according to the Australian Press.(And just to be clear – “Enda Walsh is critically known for his work on the film Hunger,” would be better as “Enda Walk is known for his work on the critically successful film Hunger,” (critically in this context meaning “the critics”).
Stangl was a senior assault leader for Hitler’s SS and a commander of two Nazi extermination camps who was infamous for his quick rise to power, ruthless leadership and consequent alcoholism.
And “and consequent alcoholism” – I’m pretty sure he means “subsequent alcoholism.”
Nevertheless, this slight problem with the language is a minor detail. The author is clearly very knowledgeable on films and shares lots of good info. The actual site, http://www.talkingfilms.net., also includes videos of trailers, but if you don’t have time to check the site daily, having the info delivered to you on Kindle makes sense.
