Now - you guys and gals (don't think I've missed anyone there.... [Big Grin] ) only ever visit this site on the big ol' web, don'tcha?

Thought not. That's why I wanted to draw your attention to a feature of Fast Rewind that you might have overlooked. Certainly if you only ever come straight to the boards, and never visit our main site, you won't have seen what I'm talking about.

Each of our movie reviews have a link to other pages on the web. All have a link to the relevant IMDB page, and if a trailer exists online, to that IMDB page as well. In addition, the site member that wrote and submitted the review has the chance to add some links of his or her own - that they feel add depth to the work they have created.

Which brings me on to the feature I alluded to in my topic title.

 - Every now and then, we find a website that is head and shoulders above any other movie page - whether they are official sites, fan sites, review pages or whatever, you just know how good they are when you find them. And to recognise these excellent resources, Nick and I will sometimes award these sites Fast Rewind Gold Status, which provides them with a little recognition from us in gratitude for their hard work and dedication to the movie. Mind you, the site has to be really great - we don't just hand these things out for nothing, you know!

One such site can be found by visiting the Some Kind Of Wonderful page HERE

If anyone knows of a website that is truly awesome that we haven't mentioned on our review pages, please let us know, either by posting here or by sending me or Nick a PM. We'll check it out, and if we also feel that the site is truly excellent, maybe you'll see the Fast Rewind Gold Award appearing on their site one day soon....

Adios for now....

Paul

The "Pure Gold" thingy is a great idea. =)

And I agree with Boby Keller. This URL "http://www.thebratpacksite.com/" deserves one, too.

Re the site for Some Kind of Wonderful ... I graduated from San Pedro High School, the school where the movie was filmed. We were given an opportunity to be "extras" in the movie.

nope, not me. We didn't see a whole lot of the actors - just walked up and down the hallways and sat around outside while they filmed.

It would be awesome if that site had a forum so we could all discuss the awesome "Brat Pack!".
