Look what you’ve done: You always remember your first

0

The great thing about being here so early in Flixist’s life is you can say, “Hey, remember the first time x happened?” Man, that was great. Well, if you were here this week, you’ll definitely have a lot of opportunity for that.

This week, we had our first user-submitted movie as well as our first community podcast. Not bad, wouldn’t you say? And while it’s a little late now, it’s still Halloween week, meaning that you could be the first to submit a post for one of our weekly themes. Hurry!

Hey, did you know we have forums? I mean, yeah, we have that forums tab up there, but if you click through to community forum (since it's not displaying the latest posts correctly yet) you'll find a variety of threads where you can chat it up about movies. A big thanks to the users who have already started threads, and rest assured that as the kinks continue to get worked out, we'll have more and more threads. So, head over there and get posting.

LizRugg is keeping the content flowing, this time with an exploration of the classic film La Jetée, which leads her into a chat about using photography as cinema. It's a really interesting topic, and I would (and I'm sure Liz would) love to hear your comments on the topic, so read up and leave some comments. Here's a taste:

"So, if we have a movie where photographs are the film itself, what we have is a film that is an encapsulation of the past and that is only existing in the present, all the while forming a narrative that mirrors that thought exactly.  La Jetée is essentially naming photography as a medium of death and stillness, and cinema as a medium of life and movement."

Some person who you've never heard of named LizRugg posted another (actually, a few other) blogs this week, but one other that I wanted to highlight was her "A Movie that Changed Me" post, largely because this is something we want everyone to be doing. Seriously, if we're writing about movies that changed us, it's a great opportunity for you to do the same. If we're celebrating Halloween Week, celebrate with us by writing something about Halloween. It will bring us all closer so that we may hug and frolic among the unicorns of cinematic bliss. With that said,

"I promised myself I would write one of these posts during the honeymoon period, but it took me a while to figure out what movie I really wanted to talk about.  I've finally settled on Persepolisby Marjane Satrapi." Read the full post here.

Antwhan brought us the very first Flixist community film (which I'm calling by that name because it sounds cool, not because it was made for the community or anything.) It's called Touch, and it's not about Transformers. But that's OK, because it's still a thing you should check out.

Randombullseye posted about his new community podcast, Randomhorror. Here's how he describes it.

"The idea being that this would be a community podcast for Flixist, where myself and Jason discuss horror movies we watched this week, some news stories relating to our genre, and we would talk about a topic of some sort." Read the full post here.
