Kreativ Blogger Award

I know I should have updated about this a while ago [my laziness and internship have kept away from blogger - fully apologize and will be more active around here], but Full Moon Reviews won another major award. Here it is:



Well...that's one way of spelling it. This award was bestowed on Full Moon Reviews by my good friend Scot Nolan of Bargain Bin Reviews and Bloggin' Bin Revue. I would like to thank you sir for always supporting me. Means a lot.

Now before we can celebrate, let's make this award official:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
Scot, thank you again for the award. You've always been a great friend and I love the fact that you love horrible movies as much as I do. Thumbs up to you, sir.


2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
Been there, done that.


3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
See the intro.


4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.

While alot of you know that John Carpenter's Halloween was the first horror film to really have a lasting impact on my psyche, the first horror film that I ever watched in theaters was David Cronenberg's The Fly (1986). My five-year-old mind was traumatized by the transformation and the grossness of Jeff Goldblum's character, to the point that I have trouble watching the last half of the film even today. Sad, but true.

I've never seen any of the Tomb Raider films. Not even clips of these films. People find this weird. Not sure why.

Carson Daly bumped into me once in Times Square, knocking me on my ass. I got free TRL tickets (back when he was hosting) because of this incident. Christina Aguilera was a guest on that show. Pretty cool.

I've been a pro wrestling fan since I can remember, long before my fandom started with horror movies. I even have tapes of WWF/E stuff starting with Wrestlemania X and ending somewhere in 2007 [pretty much after the whole Chris Benoit incident]. My favorite wrestler in the 1980s was Randy "Macho Man" Savage, 90s was "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and The Undertaker, and 00s was Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho. And yes, I still watch the product, no matter how hard it is sometimes.

I'm allergic to all seafood and barbecue sauce. God is a weird one...

I wanted to be a doctor when I was younger, even going to NYU with those plans. But bombing in Biology and dealing with a whole bunch of math classes ruined that for me. So I went into film instead and it feels right.

I own every Madonna album. And yes, I'm straight.


5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
Okey dokey.


6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.

Tower Farm Reviews - Jeremy and Billy love craptacular films and review them with a lot of love and gusto. They make me want to watch films I shouldn't want to watch. That's how good these two brothers are. Always enjoy reading their work.

Midnight Confessions - Reverend Phantom does great live reviews and written reviews for grindhouse and exploitation cinema (usually of the European variety) that many mainstream people probably haven't heard of. He's extremely knowledgeable and makes you want to watch these films right after he tells you about them. He shares a common love for 70s and 80s cinema that I share. His work is always worth more than a look.

The Lightning Bug's Lair - Zach a.k.a. Mr. Bugg is probably one of the best reviewers I have ever had the pleasure of reading and befriending. Tons of info and a great amount of passion makes him one of my favorite bloggers. We share a lot of love for similar films, but he takes it to a higher level than I could ever do. I have a lot of respect for this blog because there's a lot of love put into it.

The Jaded Viewer - Great reviews and dissects horror in a very humorous, yet informational way. Plus anyone who uses JCVD in Bloodsport as a rating system gets monster kudos from yours truly.

Freddy In Space - One of my favorite horror blogs. Not only does John review horror, but he also posts news, makes lists, and just brings the funny whenever he can. Plus he also runs another great blog called Win Free Horror Shit!, which if you can't tell what it's about by the title means you should probably go back to school or something. Very supportive of the horror blogosphere. Much appreciated.

Final Girl - Stacie Ponder's horror filled blog was probably the first one to really get my attention. Her posts are funny, unique, and all around a blast to read. She also does a Film Club that I've been a part of every now and then. I wish more bloggers would do something like that because it brings us all together on one topic. Very cool lady with a very good blog.

I Like Horror Movies - Carl reviews horror films in pretty much one or two paragraphs, which is more than enough for most of them. He also supplies Great/Worst Moments In Horror, horror clips from past and present, and so much more. If you want to know if a film is good or bad in like a minute, I Like Horror Movies is your blog of choice.

There are a lot of other great blogs out there. If I didn't mention you, just remember that I love each and every one of you. Keep on bloggin'.


7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
I will do that by this weekend.

  7. Thanks so much for the award and your kind words Fred. It's been great blogging along side you for these last couple of years. You were one of my first followers and truly one of the people to first support what I was doing. Thanks so much!

  9. Thanks Fred for the shoutout...where you've been? I miss your Things I Learned from...

  10. I've been really busy for the last few months due to college. This semester will be a bit easier but now I'm interning at Fangoria, and they're keeping me busy as well. The Things I've Learned will be back soon, don't worry. It ain't going anywhere. It'll probably be back for my review of the next FULL review, which will be SAW VI.

    Fred, do you know whats happening with regards to Tyree and McQ over at "Soiled Sinema" because they haven`t reveiwed any films for almost 4 months now, i really like that site because they always publish all my comments no matter how objectionable, offensive, absurd, idiotic or irrelavent they may be. By the way, Jason over at "The Mad ravings of an entertainment junkie" hasen`t reveiwed any films for almost 10 months now, is there any way you could find out whats going on with regards to that site.

  12. I'm just glad to see you back. And yes, I will take full credit for luring you back with the Kreativ Blogger award.

    "I've never seen any of the Tomb Raider films. Not even clips of these films. People find this weird. Not sure why."
    -- I'd call this less "wierd" and more "fortunate."

    Fred, i just wondered why you haven`t said anything with regards to the comment left by "Jervaise Brooke hamster"?, i`d like to know whats going on over at "Soiled Sinema" and "The Mad Ravings Of An Entertainment Junkie" as well.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Sorry for the late reply. Been busy with stuff. I had no idea Soiled Sinema wasn't updating. I swore I read something from them at the end of the year. Maybe it was an old post or something. I couldn't tell you what happened over there.

    As for The Mad Ravings of An Entertainment Junkie, I have no idea why Jason just stopped updating. I know he still adds films to his queue on Netflix, but that's the only activity I've seen from him. Wish I could give you more info, but you know as much as I do about this issue.
