Christopher Nolan Blogothon Day 7: Contributions

Well here we are on the last day of the blogothon, I know I said I'd post this later but I have Inception buzzing around in my brain and this proves the perfect exercise.

Instead if anyone wants to do a last minute submission I will post a sister to this column around ten o clock WST. Which should give everyone plenty of time to get in a last minute contribution.

My sincere thanks to everyone who contributed. You guys really turned this into something great. And the credit I can give isn't enough.

We're going to kick things off with Mr. Neil today. Who has contributed some of the best bits to this blogothon, and whose post to day more then lives up to the high standard he set for himself. Dig in, to him digging into, Batman.

Another favorite of mine, Andreas from Pussy Goes Grrr... also chimed back in with a take on Inception.

Not Just Movies gives their take on Inception.

Simon over at Four Of Them gives her loooonnnggg awaited take on Inception.

Steve Miller ends his tenure in the blogothon with his take on Inception

Cut The Crap ends their reign with The Prestige.

Finally ending the run of the long term contributors is Lets Not Talk About Movies. My first submission, and one who made sure I had something ever day. Many thanks. He should be called Upgraydd. The two ds stand for a double dose of Dark Knight.

The Voracious Filmgoer chimes in equally enthusiastically.

Marshall At The Movies whose been a great contributer chimes in with his victory lap. He takes on Inception The Dark Knight and The Prestige.

Long time friend of the site Shakewell chimes in, sticking up for Batman Begins. Its not gonna get sand kicked in its face any longer damnit!

The incomprable Shatnertastic Stacia from She Blogged All Night, Graces us with her presence (and I mean that in a non sarcastic way!) when she drops an excellent take of The Prestige.

Do you know what else she drops on you the gentle reader? Science. She is indeed dropping mad science.

And finally, well a real treat. Tim on Antagony and Ecstasy, is one of the sharpest, wittiest, and most unexpectedly humane writers on the blogging beat. Having him pop by is like having Sarah Vowell or Gore Vidal over to hum a few bars. And that's not just the servile ass kissing it seems. I can't thank him enough.

So what are you waiting for? Go. Why do you think I saved him for last? Once you're there you're there.

And while you're there, make sure you take some time to click the What Is This? Button on the top of his page. I'm glad I did.

Okay, you are now, officially, the "All Things Christopher Nolan" portal for the WWW. Excellent job co-ordinating, ring-leading, and MC-ing. Bravo!

I paid 9 dollars for parking last night in downtown Vancouver to see one of the 7 showings of Inception. They were all sold out. Fuuuuuu! So i'm seeing it today and all that's on my mind is Nolan movies! I've gone back and watched Memento for the umpteenth time and I still scratch my head at some scenes. I'm glad I found this blog it's important that we recognize people/actors/directors that don't suck so in keeping with that theme I found another blog about Christopher Nolan not sucking. Go to
I'll be back after the movie!

Simon said...

You got A&E? Interesting...

Anyway, I have nerded all I can muster. Good night, gentle townsfolk.

Aaron said...

Good work on putting this blogathon together, Bryce! Christopher Nolan is running wild on the blogsophere! Been enjoying all the cool write-ups of yours and the sites you've been linking to. I wanted to participate, but I figured so many other great writers out there would do pieces that would blow mine out of the water anyway, so why bother. We should definitely collaborate on something in the future, though.

Stacia said...

Shatneriffic - why didn't I think of that?

Thanks for the kind words, Bryce. This has been a terrific blogathon, and thanks for all your hard work. I am well and truly a Christopher Nolan fan now, and it's entirely because of your blogathon.

Bryce Wilson said...

@ Yojimbo: Many thanks man. And many thanks for all the great pieces.

@ Ropey: Good to hear. Hope you stick around.

@ Simon: Yeah my reaction was less interesting more "OhmyGodohmyGodohmyGod..."

@Aaron: Thanks man. And any time you want to collaborate on something let me know. I'm always down.

@Stacia: Aw thanks Stacia. I'm looking forward to reading your stuff as you discover more of his films.

Tim said...

Ah, go on, you'll give me a big head.

Anyway, you've curated a really excellent collection here. It shouldn't be surprising that so many good people could come up with so much to say about Nolan, and yet the sheer glut of awesome essays... it boggles the mind.

Bryce Wilson said...

Many thanks Tim.

Should there ever be a chance to return the favor. Count me in.
