Reel Reviews – Dazed and Confused

Reel Review #8: Here is another fun film. No work involved, just a good time. Today we discuss Dazed and Confused, the 1993 film by independant film director Richard Linklater hot off his success with Slacker. This film has a cast of young actors just about to hit, including Matthew McConaughey’s breakout role. That plus a great soundtrack makes for a great Friday night film.

    Love what you’re doing with your podcasts. Unlike most of the dozens (hundreds?) of others out there, you actually know your subject. And in this, what I consider podcasting’s infancy; that’s saying something. My Amazon DVD wishlist keeps getting longer and longer thanks to you!

    Your website’s simple, clean & neat look is very appealing, as well. My only gripe is a ridiculously minor one, a nitpick really. But here goes:

    Would you consider enlarging the image (album art) of your regular mp3 reviews? The thumbnails you’ve switched to, liked Dazed and Confused’s art, are quite grainy and small. Since your review subjects are more than likely going to be DVD’s, would/could you use the cover art from a site like the aformentioned How about Just a thought. I don’t have a clue as to the legality of it, tho.

    Anyhow, enjoy your stuff all the same. Keep on truckin’.

    Sounds like a good idea. I was originally trying to keep the file size at a minimum, but I think the difference in including larger DVD cover art would be negligible. Next few reviews I do I’ll include the Amazon larger art size – those only run about 60 KB. We’ll see how that works.

    Thanks for the feedback and I appreciate the compliment.
