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: October

I didn’t watch quite as many movies in October as I did in the previous two months (though I did still watch a lot!). That’s partially due to some TV viewing: my month-long re-watch of Twin Peaks: The Return, and finally checking out The Haunting of Hill House before watching The Haunting of Bly Manor.…

Films in 2020: September

Well just like August, September ended up being a huge movie-watching month. While I did watch more new-to-me movies this past month, it didn’t quite top the previous month’s total. The first part of the month was spent catching up on about two dozen more movies from TCM’s Summer Under the Stars programming, plus a…

Films in 2020: August

August was a huge-movie watching month for me and other avid TCM viewers, as it was the channel’s annual Summer Under the Stars festival. This year was definitely the most I tuned into the programming thanks to being home much more often, and if I was working from home as well this month’s count would’ve…

Films in 2020: July

July was a bittersweet month. The very first day marked Olivia de Havilland’s 104th birthday, and in the last weekend she passed away. She’s one of my very favorite actresses and a woman I admire deeply, so her passing has really affected me, though as I’ve said elsewhere (including in my small remembrance post here),…

Films in 2020: June

It’s almost hard to believe we’re just now halfway through the year, but here we are. I hope everyone is staying as safe and healthy as can be, and that the rest of the year might be a little better. At least we have movies to comfort us when we need them, right? June was…

Films in 2020: May

In light of what’s going on right now, from the Black Lives Matter protests to the coronavirus pandemic, this post will be much shorter than my usual movie wrap-up posts. Stay safe everyone.

Films in 2020: April

With the stay-at-home order in effect through April, I took that time to watch a ton of movies and even ended up watching the exact same amount of movies that were either new-to-me or ones I’ve seen before. The high re-watch count was mostly because of the TCMFF: Special Home Edition, which ran from April…

Films in 2020: March

March was a long month, to say the least. My birthday was on a Saturday this year, so I got to celebrate it at Disneyland (and finally visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge!). But within the next week, the park closed down, joining so many more closures and cancellations because of coronavirus concerns (including the beloved…
