Honest Scrap Award

In my most recent visit to Samuel Wilson's outstanding Mondo 70 movie blog, I was flattered to see that he included this site among those he listed with the Honest Scrap Award. The thing that I like and appreciate about online awards such as these is that it highlights blogs that I might otherwise might never have visited -- for instance, when Samuel said that he was nominated by The Agitation of the Mind blog, I instantly realized that this was a great site that I had never visited before. So, for this very reason, I'll continue the trend and go ahead and nominate six of my favorite blogs and continue the cycle. These are all sites that I visit regularly and I would encourage others to do so as well. Also, I should note that I would definitely have included John's excellent Twenty Four Frames blog if Samuel had not already done so. It's one of my two or three favorites, so definitely check it out as well.


Hollywood Dreamland

Only the Cinema

Movie Classics

Screen Savour

Wonders in the Dark a.k.a. The Cadillac (pre-GM bailout) of Movie Blogs! :)

So you can't say I broke the chain of this award... do with it as you will! Visit all of these blogs if you haven't before, as these provide great communities for movie fans to get together and discuss their love of film.


  1. In behalf of Allan, Tony and myself, I thank you Dave for those effusive words of praise. Kudos to you, John Greco, Samuel Wilson and the proprietors of those excellent blogs you rightfully mention!

  2. Dave, thanks a lot for mentioning my blog. The fact that an ardent and immensely well-watched cinephile like you has favourable opinion about my blog really made my day. Thanks once again :)

  3. You guys are both welcome... your sites deserve any and all recognition!

  4. Anybody who participates in Dave's Countdown has most likely got a blog that's worthy of more recognition from the broader blogosphere. You guys are all good.

  5. Agreed, Samuel... I picked six because you picked six (plus, you honored a couple that I would have chosen as well!)! There are definitely tons more great links on the left side of the page. I appreciate everybody who has jumped in on the countdown. Hopefully everybody has enjoyed it as much as I have.

  6. Thank you very much for this recognition, Dave - sorry to be slow in responding but I have been away on holiday. I am very flattered, both that you like my blog and to be listed with your other choices. And congratulations to you, John and Samuel for getting the award in the first place! Judy

  7. You're welcome, Judy... your blog deserves it. I might not comment there as much as I should, but I'm always lurking and reading your posts!
