So, this is month number two of the ongoing blog of mine. Wow, I can’t believe I made it this far.
September was a tough month, I got to getting one post a week so far. Not only that, didn’t see a lot of movies to review. In fact, if you see the list I made last month, I got to see one on that list. Actually I saw two over the weekend, hope I can finish typing that review, post it tomorrow.
But I got to post two video game reviews, which I am very proud of. I got a lot of great feedback from those, and I want to take the time to thank everyone. I am still working on three other games for review, and hope I can post at least two this month.
Currently, a couple of list posts are being worked on. Also, the couple of posts I mentioned in the September Checklist should be posted this month. Fingers Crossed.
I preordered the new Batman game, so if I have something to say about it, expect a post around mid October. I was a huge fan of the first Batman Arkham Asylum, and honestly can’t wait for this one. Not many other newer games are in my horizon for this month.
As for movies, let’s get that list going:
Yes, I would like to see:
The Ides of March – October 7
This was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it would have been cool to see then. But to be honest, it would have been cheaper to wait to see it in a month or so. I’m a sucker for political dramas. Not a huge fan of Clooney, but I do give this man a chance at least with this movies.
Real Steel – October 7
Yeah, I know, it’s a movie about Rockem Sockem robots. But it looks like an entertaining movie, at minimum.
The Thing – October 14
Remakes are usually something I am hesitant over, but I’m willing to give this a shot.
The Rum Diary – October 28
Looks like a sequel to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Count me in!
Anonymous – October 28
I love the conspiracy theory that William Shakespeare didn’t write a damn word. So a movie about that theory sounds really entertaining.
No, I have no interest in seeing:
Footloose – October 14
Hated the original. Why would I pay money to see a remake that’s, if we’re very lucky, probably half the quality of what the original movie?
The Big Year – October 14
Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson, in a comedy about bird watching. If I can get a written statement from them explaining why I should assume it’s going to be funny, then I’ll reconsider. Pass.
The Three Musketeers – October 21
It’s the three musketeers! We’ve seen it. Many times before. Oh, it’s Orlando Bloom being evil, so that’s new. I can wait until it’s cheaper.
Paranormal Activity 3 – October 21
Another sequel to Para-boring Inactivity? Screw that.
Johnny English Reborn – October 28
Speaking of Another Sequel? This time, with a bad Rowan Atkinson. The Mister Bean shorts were funny, but for true comedy genius, look for Atkinson’s other series from Britain, Black Adder. Trust me on this one.
