Yuss...tomorrow is our last day of school before exam leave. I'm kinda scared though, because it is our last year of school that we'll have another year of school waiting for us, if you know what I mean. Oh well, the study leave is welcomed as I plan to ace (some) exams and watch a whole lot of movies. And this will be my last Tuesday Movie Night on a school night until February. I'll be watching Snow White and the Huntsman and Friends with Kids, which will kick off the best month of DVD releases ever apart from July. I would have liked to have caught up with The Cabin in the Woods again, but I don't have the time at the moment. But hey, soon I'll have nothing but time.
Video of the week...
What are we all thinking about the Side Effects trailer? Apparently this is Steven Soderbergh's last film, which is a great shame (even though I've never been the biggest fan of it). I'm just excited to see Rooney Mara, because she's awesome.
Blog of the month...
With a new month comes a bit of a sidebar mix around, and also the blog of the month. This month, the blog that gets to adorn my sidebar is Defiant Success, run by the lovely Anna. There's reviews aplenty here, so if you're looking for something, no doubt Anna has it covered.

Another person celebrating a blog birthday was Mette over at Lime Reviews, who shared her views on the blogging world/world in general. Very inspiring stuff.
Sam was completely blind-sided by The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and sings its praises here. While I wait for the film, I'm going to read the book a few thousand times.
