LAMB #811 – The Smoking Pen

Site Name: The Smoking Pen
Categories: Reviews, General, Lists, Badass Action Flicks
Rating: PG-13

What is the main focus of your site?
Reviewing badass movies. Bad*ass |bad,as| is defined as cars/buildings/fruitstands that explode into unrealistic balls of fire, women with legs that go on forever, and gangsters, thieves, and the general dark underbelly of humanity that goes bump in the night.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I failed to find too many action movie blogs that accepted both chicks and dicks, and as an action movie loving woman I felt that disheartening. So I decided to create a place where I could write about testosterone riddled films and discuss them with other enthusiasts. I’m also trying to be a professional screenwriter, and since that’s falling short, this is a good place for me to get my energies out.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
Definitely interactive. The more the merrier.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
It’s just made the three month cut. I post at least one review a week, occasionally alongside a “top ten” list or something of that sort.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Till Dawn, Snatch.

How did you hear about the LAMB?
I’m pretty sure I stumbled upon it through a link on the brilliant blog Rachel’s Reel Reviews (http://www.rachelsreelreviews.com/). [Editor’s Note: I did NOT make this part up, it was in the actual submission form.  I did refrain from bolding it and put it in all caps,though. And thanks, M. Hufstader!]

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
It’s a PG-13 in blogosphere, but if hard language offends you, I’d steer clear. What can I say? I just get f***ing excited about motherf***ing movies.

    Haha. I hope you meant to write you DIDN’T make that part up.

    If you didn’t, that’s still pretty awesome.

    I’m the last to judge about typos. Just thought it was humorous! 🙂

    Re – Inception, have you not seen this? The score is basically made up of a realllly slowed down Je Ne Regrette Rien, the song used to wake the team up when they’re dreaming. Its actually genius.
