Films in 2021: May

Hello June! It’s looking to be a promising summer ahead, especially on the film front with some long-awaited releases finally hitting theaters soon. I did finally go to the theater last month, twice in fact! My first venture to the big screen in 15 months was at the local arthouse theater, where I saw a…

Films in 2021: April

Happy May! It’s sure to be a promising month ahead, with the virtual TCMFF coming up next weekend and soon after when I’ll probably be making my first trip back to a movie theater in more than a year! I just got my second vaccine dose on Thursday, so in just a couple of weeks,…

The 93rd Academy Awards: My Picks and Predictions

Oscar Sunday is finally here! Though we spent much less time seeing movies in theaters in 2020, there were still plenty of good movies that came out over the past year that we had access to at home more than ever before, from screenings at virtual film festivals to premiering on streaming services. And with…

The Films and Friendship of Doris Day and Rock Hudson

Today marks what would have been the 99th birthday of Doris Day. Over the past several years, she fast became one of my favorite classic Hollywood stars because of the natural charisma and warmth she brought to all her movies; she never fails to make you smile whenever she appears on-screen. TCM treated us in…

Films in 2021: March

Well with March now behind us, it’s finally Oscar month! Which is weird to say, as usually, we would’ve already had the Academy Awards by now, but of course because of obvious circumstances, that had to be delayed to April. So I’ll have my usual Oscar Sunday post of my picks and predictions toward the…

Films in 2021: February

February was another movie-filled month, though I didn’t watch quite as many movies as I did in January. Probably my biggest enjoyment this past month was watching more of Pedro Almodóvar’s films after TCM played several of them the previous month. So now I’m just one movie away from completing his filmography! Before this year,…

Films in 2021: January

We now have one month of 2021 behind us! And so far my movie-watching habits remain the same from how it was in the last half of 2020, in which I’m just watching a bunch of them, both ones I haven’t seen before and ones I’ve seen at least once. Some of my film trends…

Films in 2020 Review

Well about this time last year I posted about my year in film for 2019, in which I stated that year may be hard to top because of all the fantastic movie-related outings and travels I had. Sadly 2020 barely had any of the fun film ventures that I saw the previous year for obvious…

Films in 2020: December

Happy New Year! As you probably noticed throughout 2020, I watched a lot of movies over the past 12 months, and December was no exception. I spent the last month of the year catching up on some new releases (which will continue into January at least) and indulging in TCM’s weeklong, 24-hour classic Christmas marathon,…

Films in 2020: November

Happy December! It’s almost hard to believe there’s just one month left in 2020 now; hopefully, these last 31 days are better than much of the year, and I’m wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season. November is probably my favorite month of the year because of Noirvember, a month-long celebration of all things…
