I’ve gotten myself back on track for July, although it was tough. Maybe I need to take a sabbatical–but I’m afraid if I did that, it’d be too hard to get myself back on track. Oh well.
At least August looks like it will be a good month. I’d like to resume Hannibal starting next week, but I may wait on that, because a lot of interesting-looking recent stuff has made its way to Netflix, like Creep and a couple of other things I’ve been looking forward to. So I may put Lecter on hold.

June has been a bit of a messed-up month that felt a lot longer than it actually was. Even worse, about halfway through, my brain derailed and I’ve been having a dickens of a time getting back on track again. I wish I had a good excuse, but I don’t: I discovered Dosbox, which I’ve been using to play ’80s computer games–mostly classic CRPGs–on my ’09 iMac.
Also, between the death of Christopher Lee and the near-as-damnit cancellation of Hannibal, June has really sucked.

Not as many new-or-recent-release reviews this month–although, in my defense, I contributed not one but two pieces to Cinema Axis this month–but wow, Iots of other type of stuff, including three retro reviews. I think I may put the brakes on for June; there isn’t as much stuff coming out that I’m interested in and I’m feeling a bit of burnout. The last things I wrote for May–the full review of Manhunter and the capsules of Muppet Movie and Song of the Sea–were very difficult.

Another busy month. In addition to a full slate of eight reviews here at the Gallery, I also covered the Sci-Fi Spectacular and contributed four write-ups to Cinema Axis’s coverage of the 2015 Hot Docs documentary film festival. Maybe I should just have my keyboard surgically attached to my fingers.

Didn’t I say I was going to do an all-Retro month? Yeah, I did. I got four movies into it before getting bored with it. So I switched back to doing recent stuff. Still, I’m glad I at least attempted it, because I felt I’d been neglecting the Retro side of things for too long.

I have shaken off the winter blahs and put myself back on schedule, yay! Wrote a lot of full-length content, which means this is one of the skimpiest Month in Film entries in a while.
On the flip-side of that, Quick Cuts is going to take an extended break. Don’t know how long, but right now I can’t work up the enthusiasm for the feature.
Okay, let’s get with the movies.

January turned out to be the all-television month, as threatened. Unfortunately I got way behind on watching and writing this month so I didn’t produce as much content as I wanted to. Hopefully I will be able to rectify that next month.

WATCHED A HUGE PILE OF MOVIES THIS MONTH YEP!
Actually, due to the weirdnesses of scheduling, I actually saw a few of these movies in late November.

Golly, what a busy month! In addition to the seven reviews below, I contributed three reviews to Cinema Axis’s coverage of Toronto’s Blood in the Snow horror-film fest (Black Mountain Side; Ejecta; Queen of Blood); they’ve not been published yet, so I can’t link to them this month, but capsule reviews are below. Plus my guest appearance on Nick Jobe and Steve Honeywell’s FaceCast. I expect December will be a somewhat lighter month.

I watched a lot this month–not entirely surprising, considering this is October–but I didn’t write as many individual posts this month as I’d planned.
