Films in 2013 Review

I don’t have a lot to say for the introduction of this post, just that it’s been another fun year in movie-watching. I also managed to watch at least one new-to-me film a day, which was sometimes tough to do in between my coursework but I was up to the challenge and did it! Anyway,…

Films in 2013: December

December was filled with holiday cheer, but also some sadness over the loss of great actors that I admired (RIP Eleanor Parker, Peter O’Toole, and Joan Fontaine!). I’ve only seen a few films each of Parker and O’Toole, but it’s easy to see how good they were in what I’d seen of them. Parker was…

Films in 2013: November

This month was Noirvember! So since I watched 24 noir films this month (3 of them being re-watches), many of the films I watched this month were from the 40s and 50s, and not much in between. Additionally, 4 of my 5 favorites for the month are from the film noir genre.

Films in 2013: October

This month was filled with chills and thrills, as is usual in the spooky month of October. I didn’t get to watch as many horror movies as I wanted to, but I managed to watch 8 new-to-me movies from AFI’s 100 Thrills list. You can find updates on my progress (as well as on the…

Films in 2013: August

This past month I was able to enjoy some of TCM’s Summer Under the Stars program. Unfortunately, I missed the first few days (like Humphrey Bogart day!) but I got to see a lot of good movies, once again thanks to TCM! August 18th was Natalie Wood day, and there were only 3 movies in…

Films in 2013: June

Don’t really have much to introduce here for the month of June, other than it’s summer and I’ve spent much of it indoors watching movies (but that’s also partly because it’s been raining a lot where I live so there’s not much to do outside anyway). As you’ll see under the cut, I mostly watched…

Films in 2013: May

As usual, I watched many movies in the month of May, as I finished up my semester and summer break has officially commenced. In May I also usually like to hold my annual Star Wars marathon, so 6 of my re-watches were those movies. As you’ll see soon, most of the movies I watched were…

Films in 2013: April

April is usually a busy month for me, as it’s full of projects leading up to the end of the semester. So I didn’t watch as many films as I did in previous months this year, but I still managed to watch at least one new film a day. But I expect next month to…
