The Zombie Rabbit Awards

A short break in between reviews to thank Don Guarisco over at Schlockmania! who has awarded The Horn Section the prestigious Zombie Rabbit Award.

Many thanks, Don!  I am honored, and also pleased to have the opportunity to share the wealth with other blogs out there consistently providing worthy reads.  Without further ado, The Horn Section's Zombie Rabbits:

Rupert Pupkin Speaks -- Lots of films to rate and debate here.  Whether you want to discuss your favorite John Carpenter films, your favorite made for TV movies, or (perhaps my favorite) your favorite "killer robot" flicks, here's a site that has a list for every film fan.

Cinema du Meep -- Michael shares my affinity for discussing those films that haven't found their way to DVD yet in his DVD Evaders series, and provides especially interesting material for those of us who grew up on the films of the 1980's.

Television Obscurities -- You'll get week by week historical Nielsen ratings (currently covering the 1972-73 season), lots of short-lived but interesting series (most recently, the wonderful one-season wonder My World and Welcome to It), and, oh, yeah, they talk about F Troop too, which is reason enough for a gold star, right?

Blaxploitation Pride -- Very informative site that only highlights classic 1970's films that fall under the blog's title description, but their soundtracks, TV series such as Sanford and Son and Good Times, and documentaries.  Occasionally ventures outside the 1970's as well.  If you enjoyed the reviews of THE MUTHERS, CLEOPATRA JONES AND THE CASINO OF GOLD, THE LANDLORD and SUGAR HILL by yours truly, you'll find more information on those films and many more at the Blaxploitation Pride site.

Mr. Peel's Sardine Liqueur -- Probably deserves an award just for referencing the now-forgotten BIG TROUBLE in its title.  No, not the Tim Allen flick.  The interesting failure from 1986 that re-teamed Peter Falk and Alan Arkin but failed to recapture the magic of THE IN-LAWS (1979, not the lousy 2003 remake) in the midst of production troubles.  He has over 400 posts of happy cinematic reading to browse through over the last 4 years, covering all genres. 

Congratulations to all of our winners, and I hope I've steered you to some wonderful reading while taking this breather.  The 47th review in our never-ending DVD series is next, just in time for a brand new NFL season.  That's your only hint.....
