Film Fans present The Liebster Award
Furious Cinema would just like to thank our fellow film fanatic Aurora at Once Upon A Screen & Citizen Screenings for giving us our first blog award. We really appreciate this kind welcome to the movie blogging community. We are committed to celebrating film and our hope is to inspire movie lovers to watch and explore what’s out there whether it be new or old. The medium of film is an important part of our world, it brings us together and sparks our imaginations and dreams. If we can share just a little bit of appreciation for it with our reviews and articles that is a great, positive thing for us!

2. All-time favorite classic film performance male and female. Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird and Olivia DeHavilland in The Heiress.
3. Gotham City or a galaxy far, far away? A galaxy far far away, Id rather go someplace fantastic than stay in reality.
4. What question would you ask your favorite film director, living or dead? I’d ask them what theyre obsessed with most about the world of movies.
5. Why did you start a blog? We started FC to celebrate some of our favorite non-exploitation films (I also have a site called GCDb which covers just b-movies)
6. You woke up this morning and are living in a classic film noir. Who are you and in which film? I’d wake up in Kiss Me Deadly and be Mike Hammer I think hes one of the coolest characters and I think that world is very exciting.
7. One skill you wish you had. I wish I could be a great raconteur.
8. Most underrated film actor: David Strathairn
9. What is your all-time favorite book character? I’ve never been a huge reader but I’d say Tom Joad in John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath, which I read in high school.
10. If you can go to any year, when would you go to and why? I’d go into the future because I already know about the past so it wouldn’t be as interesting. Plus I’d like to see all the technological advances.
11. How different would our classic film community/experience be today without Turner Classic Movies (TCM)? I think all film fans owe an immense amount of thanks to TCM because if not for that network most of us wouldn’t be as well schooled in cinema as we are. They’ve introduced myself and others to tons of classic films over the years. It’s simply a very important part of our artistic culture, it’s like PBS educational programming for cineastes.
