Just so you guys know, I’ll be watching movies at a relaxed pace this month. I won’t make any new posts until this month’s done, at which point I’ll likely post way more reviews in a day than I’ve posted in this entire blog’s existence.
I was planning on seeing “Annabelle: Creation” today, but I'm seeing “Detroit” instead. Just thought I'd let you know. In other news, I've started a blog where I review tokusatsu aimed specifically at children. If you like my reviews, and want to see them tackling things that hold up under their own standards as opposed to the academic standards of film scholars, well, here's the link. (My first review will be tomorrow, and I'll be seeing the movie after I get home.)
Update: It doesn't appear that I was much in the mood for “Detroit.” Go figure.
Hey, guys, just thought I'd tell you that I'm not publishing a review of “Dracula” until Monday. However, look for a review of a surprise movie on Saturday. I'll give you a hint as to what it is: It's coming out on Friday, and is connected to a franchise.
I was thinking that I'd review “Detroit” today, but due to me unexpectedly feeling ill before going into the theater, that was not what happened. (Before anybody says anything, I've elected to have the Sunday of each week be without a post, as that's the Holy Day.)
Anyway, starting Monday (for you guys, at least), I'm going to, for the first time, start seeing the Universal Monster films and reviewing them, starting with 1931's “Dracula.” Not all of them, but the ones I are highly recommended by every film lover's definition, or movies that are merely important to the property's history. One thing I've heard from quite a few people is that you have to be a certain state of mind to appreciate those movies, especially the ones from the ’30s. If someone here could provide a feel for what that state of mind entails, I'd like to know.
Just a quick update; the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” review will hopefully, hopefully, be published tomorrow. No promises, but that seems to be the direction things are going. Once again, I'm sorry for not keeping you guys satisfied, but things are definitely changing, as my landscape is not anything like it used to be.
Let's get right to the point: The “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” review is being delayed until Friday, due to unforeseen circumstances that I'd rather not get into. It's the last thing I want to tell my fledgling audience, but sometimes, life intervenes, and you can't always help it. See you Friday! 😕
So, just so everyone is aware, I was planning on reviewing “Dr. No” after “The Gift.” But when I started watching it, I started too late, and I wasn’t able to finish it. After putting it off a bit longer, I watched it just now, but put it off again, and then started again. I’ll post a review of that movie tomorrow, and a review of the recently released “Wonder Woman” at a later interval tomorrow. (Yeah, I’m excited for seeing it, after a while of writing the DC Extended Universe off as a fad. Who’da thunk?)
I’d also like to extend a thank you to my new followers, as I don’t know if I would’ve kept updating this blog without you. It’s because of you that I have incentive to keep updating this blog, and I congratulate and thank you for that.
Well, here we are again. To me, even from a young age, I always felt that once November rolls around, the time for being scared to celebrate Halloween has passed. Because of that (and my horrible ability to keep up with schedules), I’m going to review the movies I was planning to review in January, where they’ll take up most of the month. With that being said, I don’t want this Halloween to be a total waste, so I’ll be posting a rather special review tomorrow. What it is? You’ll have to find out when it comes.
