Movie-Based Movie Blogs

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if film blogs took their titles, grading scales, and perhaps taglines from favorite films. Now this is just a musing of mine. It’s not my usual post, but I couldn’t get it out of my mind, and I thought it might be fun to share with you all. Below, I have listed some fictional film blogs based on films themselves as well as possible grading scales and taglines that may be associated.

(Note that you may need some level of familiarity with the source films to get the “joke” behind the taglines and the grading scales.)

Please hit “read more” to look at my musing.

Please let me know if this was a failed idea. If so, I understand. If you absolutely loved it, or enjoyed it very well, or at least thought it was a neat idea, I shall consider this a pilot for an upcoming feature for my blog. Thank you, followers, readers, and friends.

  1. This is really awesome. Especially loved the ones from “Cliché” and the ones from Batman and Star Wars. Although, don’t you think the ones from 12 Angry Men if they were inverted? Unanimous being the best, then 1 through 11 Angry Critics and the worst would be riot.

        • Oh no, I meant misreading any article in general for the 18th time. I tend to misinterpret for whatever reason. Glad to see Bruce Wayne is, in fact, a Jehovah’s Witness. Surprised he doesn’t go door to door preaching his faith and claiming he knows everybody in Gotham. That’s what they Jehovah’s Witnesses seem to be doing in my neighborhood, so that’s all I really know about them. :/
