Still Alive!

Wow. Two weeks, really? New record. I guess real life just sailed into the way there for a bit. I’m sorry my regularity dans le blog has slipped dramatically – but rest assured, expect some of the good old GTC again from tomorrow onwards.

The movie project is getting tough. Keeping my interest piqued by sticking to a pre-ordained schedule was a war I was losing. So, the rules have changed slightly – no more scheduling! Each review will come at you without preview, and you’ll never know what it’ll be (obviously within the scope of the 210+ films I have left), meaning you could get Empire Strikes Back one day, and Meet Dave the next. You might not. Some folk have also pointed out that getting to 250 in a year now is an uphill climb. That, my friends, may well be. But I’m gonna see how many I actually manage. If I get 150 at least, I’ll be happy. But, the goal is still there.

So, in short, sit tight – normal service resumes tomorrow!

Coming Up…

Alright people.  I’ve scouted out the films I’m gonna be peeping and revooin’ up to April 1st (if I’m lucky)… they could come in any order.  Pretty much.  ’24 Hour Party People’ review due up tomorrow morning.  Eee, the excitement.  EEEE

  • AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON
  • APOCALYPSE NOW
  • APOLLO 18
  • ATTACK THE BLOCK
  • BLUE VELVET
  • CARRY ON UP THE KHYBER
  • COWBOYS AND ALIENS (hoo, boy)
  • DAWN OF THE DEAD (ORIGINAL)
  • DR. NO
  • FIGHT CLUB
  • GROSSE POINTE BLANK
  • HOTEL RWANDA
  • L.A. CONFIDENTIAL
  • LEON (THE PROFESSIONAL)
  • LES DIABOLIQUES
  • MEET DAVE (again.  hooooo boy)
  • MOON
  • O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU?
  • ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST
  • RAGING BULL
  • RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

  • THE DAMNED UNITED
  • THE FLY
  • THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
  • THE PRESTIGE
  • THE THING
  • THIS IS SPINAL TAP

Naturally, some of these were slated for review in Feb.  So, they’ll be getting precedence.  Even *heave* The Thing *retch*.  I’ve been trying to desensitise myself so I can brace myself to actually sit through it.  I don’t cope well with excess gore.  But, hey.  Let’s build character.

Any thoughts / preferences / grievances with the films I’m to lumber myself with for the next month?  Any which I should watch drunk?

Oh, and expect a site update soon.  Need to archive old reviews etc.  Brace.  Yourselves.

Tatties,
