What Is A Liebster Award? I Now Know The Answer


So a fellow blogger, and regular commenter here, who’s site is called Thoughts From The Booth recently awarded me with The Liebster Award. My initial reaction ranged from “what is that?” to “Has Joe’s account been hacked and now he’s sending complimentary spam?”. I get a lot of complimentary spam, by the way. If in doubt, Google the potential spam comment. That’s my advice for today. Where was I? Oh yeah, Liebster thing. The Liebster Award is a blogger network prize the origins of which I’ll explain after the jump. Effectively though one blogger nominates a number of other bloggers they enjoy, all of which have a limited number of followers, in an attempt to spread the word and get some juicy subscriber cross-pollination going. In the process you answer a series of questions the nominator poses to you. So, Thoughts From The Booth nominated me and after the jump I’ll nominate someone else and answer the questions posed to me.

Let Us Compile A Top (And Bottom) 5 List!

Seeing as it is The Film Dump’s first ever birthday today I thought I’d put together two fun little top fives. The first will be a top 5 of my favourite films that I have watched over the last year. The other will be the absolute worst films I have watched over this last year. I’ll be honest, thanks to my love of a good ran I’ve probably seen more bad films over this last year than I normally would have. Obviously it’s all in the pursuit of providing some form of entertainment for anyone that happens to stumble across this blog whilst searching for pictures of Chris Evans with his shirt off. So, click the link for the best & worst of The Film Dump’s first year!

Maybe I should make a mixtape too

Stats Dump! 6 Months Old Edition

The Film Dump is 6 months old today!!! That means I have watched a total of 77 films in 6 months and wrote a review for each one. Actually I’ve seen 78 but I couldn’t decide if Chanbara Striptease was really a film or not and so I ignored it. As you should to. Anyway, I said I’d do a Stats Dump post after 6 months so here it is. Click the link if you’re the sort of boring sod that likes statistics!

Can I hit 100 reviews by Christmas? I don’t doubt it.

Stats Dump Time!

It’s officially the end of month 2 for The Film Dump and stats have been all crazy up in dis bitch over the last month. I did a stats dump entry on May 25th and at the end I said I’d do another at the 6 month mark. But due to the massive leap in views I got this month and the amount the stats have been shaken up I thought I do one now. I’m a bit of a stats geek, hopefully you are too. Here we go…

Stats Dump. We’re One Month Old Today… Well just before midnight last night really…

So yeah, I started this blog around midnight on the 25th of April on a whim after watching Mortal Kombat and thinking “I should write a review of this in the hopes someone will read it and help massage my ego”. Well 30 days later and there’s very little ego massaging going on, but there are stats to be shared. So here we go…

Lots of numbers this way! YAY!!!

Movie Review No.5: Titanic 2 … Wait, What?

Yeah, Titanic 2. It’s a thing that happened. Now first thing to get straight is that this isn’t a sequel to the James Cameron billion dollar cash cow Titanic. See it’s called Titanic 2 but it’s not Titanic 2. The boat is called the Titanic 2 and the film is named after the boat. That looks exactly like the Titanic, except with a 2 on the side of it. Apparently it’s also really high tech and fast on the inside though so that’s different. So what happens in this film? Well it’s made by The Asylum so it’s bound to be an original piece of film making I’m sure. If original meant being a blatant shameless cash in on something that is either currently or at some point quite popular.

This blog will go on.
