April 2012

33.3% through 2012…

41% through 100 films

Another month over with not many reviews posted. That backlog is getting quite ridiculous now. No significant strategy for getting caught up with it, I’m afraid to say, other than that I do aim to tackle it. Plus the leftovers from last year! Some may need a re-watch; alternatively, I may attempt another Ip Man-style summary.

Viewing progresses well though. Not as many new titles as previous months — down to seven features versus 10, 13 and 11 from previous months — but as #41 is the target for the end of May, I’m happy.

Catching up on 2011

Recent weeks seem to have seen a fresh inundation of 2011 releases hitting home entertainment formats — The Adventures of Tintin, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol are all among my purchases this month, with The Artist, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, War Horse and more imminent. That’s not to mention stuff released earlier that I’ve still not got round to, like Cowboys & Aliens, Green Lantern, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Transformers: Dark of the Moon (not that I’ve deigned to buy all of those). As the 2012 blockbuster season officially kicks off (I think we can call The Avengers‘ already-happened international debut & forthcoming US release that), it’s about time I performed my usual trick of catching up on last year’s big hitters.

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

Goodness knows. But some of the above, I should imagine. And I haven’t even mentioned all the exciting catalogue releases that have been happening recently!
