*Monthly Recap

So I’ve been gone for a while. I took some time off to do some uni work. I did no uni work. 

But I’m back!! I’m actually making another blog post????? I’m amazed. 

So what have I been up to?? Honestly nothing much. I’ve been up and down from home to uni quite a few times, for various reasons; as well as making a pretty great start into my “2017 in Film”. 

I’m planning on watching as many movies this year as I can. For the month of January, I hit 30 films. Not all of these were new watches, but the vast majority were. In terms of new films, in my opinion the best film of January was Hunt for the Wilderpeople. This film was incredible, I loved the writing, the acting and the direction. As a result of this film, I’m even more hype for Thor 3, also directed by Taika Waititi. I’d recommend this movie for anyone, especially to watch with family. 

The worst film of January was by far The Pyramid. I just didn’t understand it. Scary? Yeah, it had a few jump scares. But these seemed incredibly cheap and expected. I scare easily so things are going to make me jump, but I knew when everything was going to happen. This, accompanied by the fact that I can’t take James Buckley serious as all I can hear is Jay from The Inbetweeners, means that this movie just… Sucked. I don’t even know what was going on for a lot of it. It started off being filmed in first person, which made sense. Then all of a sudden, we’re third person. This totally pulled me out of the film. I understand why it had to happen? But it just wasn’t good. 

I’m going to wrap this up because I’m about to get off the train. I’m really going to make a push to post more often. I can’t promise daily posts? Sometimes I just do nothing. But I’ll be more active for sure. 

Talk to you guys later, have a great day.
