Bloggish recommendation

My favorite blog these days is Antagony & Ecstasy, a movie review blog written by a fella named Tim who is an absolutely maniacal film buff and who writes long, thoughtful reviews. For the past six weeks, leading up to the release of The Princess and the Frog, he's been doing a series of retrospective reviews of every animated Disney film (that's forty-five movies)--thousands of words each, with all kinds of historical context and technical detail. A staggering task, but he did not waver, and now it is triumphantly complete. It's a hell of a sight to see--it's truly epic, and reading through the whole thing from beginning to end really provides a sense of history. It's certainly made me quite keen to see some of the many Disney movies I missed. You should check it out.
