Films in 2021: September

Happy October! I’m kicking off the month by spending the next ten days in New York City, primarily for the New York Film Festival; I’m so excited to be back at this great event and to see some of my most highly-anticipated movies of the year. With that said, this will be another short wrap-up…

Films in 2021: August

Hello September! It’s almost hard to believe summer is winding down now, but the good news is my favorite season is just around the corner. As usual, I watched plenty of movies in August, and much of this past month’s viewings came from TCM’s Summer Under the Stars (I still have some catching up to…

Films in 2021: July

Compared to last month, July was an especially big movie-watching month. I ended up watching more than a dozen Elvis Presley movies because he was TCM’s Star of the Month, and I’ve always been curious to see more of his films (I’d only seen five of them before this July tribute). Unfortunately, most of them…

Films in 2021: June

June was actually a lighter movie-watching month for me, compared at least to the usual high count I’ve had recently. That’s partly due to me dedicating a couple of weeks to finally finishing the last couple of seasons of Columbo (though I still watched a couple of films in between episodes)! I’ll probably pick up…

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,…

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…
