The B+ Movie Blog Directors List

I think I teased this three years ago. I spent the first two years of the site putting up “Mike’s Top Ten” lists. Every three months, I would put up another one, going backward from the 2000s to the 1930s. (That’s something to be discussed one of these days.) And just before the last one went up, on the two and a half year anniversary of my graduation from college, I posted the initial version of the “Films I’ve Watched Since Graduation” article, where I said I was working on a “Top Tens by Director” list.

Initially I think I had something like a hundred names. And I only listed my top ten favorite films of theirs and nothing more. Or top five, if they didn’t direct ten films. Which was unnecessarily limiting, and the kind of thing that would have been okay if I had posted the article immediately. But then Fun with Franchises happened, and I had time to let it sit. And as we all know by now, when I’m left to sit and think about a project I’ve given myself, it expands from whatever I was originally planning on doing. (more…)


Pic of the Day: “Just what I’ve always wanted.” “A restaurant?” “No, a friend with a restaurant.”

The B+ Movie Guide

So that was a fun… I don’t know, four, five months?

Apparently posted pages don’t show up on the actual post list, so I’ll use this article to let everyone know that the full Guide, with all three lists, has been posted in one convenient location:

The B+ Movie Guide

It’ll be at the menu up top from now on. Just wanted to let you all know that was up there.

And that there will be something really exciting going up tomorrow (finally).
