The only good thing about being sick is that I have an excuse to sit around all day and watch movies. Which is good, because I can watch all of the releases (which also have very small run-times - a definite plus). I've caught up with The Big Year, a surprisingly average film with a great cast, and Haywire, which was pretty close to being a terrible film. Now I just have Wanderlust (for the cast, people, for the cast), The Sitter (this movie is exactly what I'm in the mood for) and one of the last 2011 films I'm anticipating, Martha Marcy May Marlene. Exciting.
I'm sure no-one has noticed but I've been absent all weekend. Mainly because I've been far too busy for my own good, but also because this is a little bit of foreshadowing. For the remainder of the week, after I've done my last anime post, I'm going to be doing my 2011 retrospective. I realise that 2011 happened seven months ago but we all have to remember that I live in NZ where we're seven months behind in everything. I'll do my monthly review post and then I'll be letting the blog go for a little while. I don't know how long I'll be - I'll probably come out of hiding when I can finally enjoy giving all my nights up to blogging again. Sorry, guys.
Video of the week...
I'm sure that there were variations of this song in Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, but this track from The Dark Knight Rises' soundtrack is beautiful. Please. I need to see it again.
Last week I was interviewed by the LAMBpyre. Check it out.
Nikhat wants to know: who's the more badass female superhero of the year? Black Widow or Catwoman?
Jessica sheds some light on the awesome Strange Days, which never gets enough love.
I could share a whole lot of reviews on The Dark Knight Rises here but chances are you're sick to death of them. But I did LOVE Alex's review, mainly because we're both on the exact same page. Which is more rare than I previously thought.
Leith shares his thoughts on 50/50 and 21 Jump Street, two of the most enjoyable films on DVD here at the moment.
Brittani shares some love with the brilliant Tyrannosaur.
Mette looks at the costumes from The Avengers. I'd take any opportunity to dress up as any one of them.
What's your hobby outside of film-watching/film-reviewing?
