November 2010

Merry Christmas! Almost!

But before that, here’s the handful of films I watched in November…

Oh dear.

After doing so well for most of the year — including last month, where I made appropriate headway toward my new goal of 130 films — it’s rather slipped in November. Just four new films (and a couple of others I’ll review, but that don’t count in the slightest).

I blame TV. I’ve been watching repeat runs of Colditz and Due South, which between them add around 9 hours a week to my already significant TV viewing. 9 hours out of a whole week doesn’t sound much in isolation, but nonetheless those are the hours I usually use to watch films.

As we head into December, that leaves me with exactly 15 to get through to hit my new target. A not unachievable goal — I made it to 16 in May and August this year — but more of a push than I’d’ve hoped for. On the other hand, makes it a bit more exciting, eh?

#112 The Spiral Staircase (1947)
#113 Solaris (1972)
#114 Toy Story 3 (2010)
#115 Odd Man Out (1947)
#115a The Special Edition of Beauty and the Beast (1991/2002)
#115b The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
#115c The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)

(I’ll give you one guess what the first film of December is going to be.)

Next time on the all-new 100 Films in a Year monthly update…

It’s the final countdown! The big push! A couple of other clichés!

31 days ’til the end of the year. (At least) 15 more films to watch. It always looks so much easier on paper…
