I think that movie blogs, and classic movie blogs in particular, could really use a lot more attention and I really want to help do that in some way. So I’ve decided to (a) look around the web a lot more for great classic film sites and blogs and (b) make a post about them whenever I add them as a link.

So today I have two links to share. They found me, though, and asked to be linked, and after looking at their sites I am more than happy to do so.

Radiation Cinema is even more niche than we are here at Obscure Classics. Mykal Banta writes all about the science fiction B-movies of the 1940s and 1950s. He’s got some amazing and in-depth writeups on movies like I Married a Monster From Outer Space and The Alligator People. The site itself is also pretty damn good looking.

l’eclisse is a more general classic film blog. It’s relatively new, but it already has some very nice content. It seems there’s a lot of attention for Louise Brooks over there, which is pretty awesome. Go visit and give this young blog some love.

I just wanted to pass this link along for anyone who doesn’t frequent the Rotten Tomatoes forums. I’m doing an insanely intense thread on pre-code film, not just about the movies, but also the history and its influence. Once I finish it, I might post some of it here (but really, looking at all that I have so far, it might end up being the size of a small book). But I just wanted to post this link here so that anyone interested in pre-code film and history can take a look.
