Hello, movie buffs! Long time no see! August was a pretty small viewing month for me since I spent nearly half of the month in the woods, but I still watched some cool stuff… so here’s the wrap-up!

Favorite viewings of the month: The Farewell, Don’t Look Now, and Blinded by the Light
- The Music Man (1962)
Only one re-watch this month, but it was a spectacular one: I got to enjoy The Music Man on the big screen at the wonderful Vogue Theatre in Manistee, Michigan — introduced by Ken Cooper, who previously introduced the film on TCM! Ken was hilarious, and the film was beautiful. I hope to have a whole post up soon on my experiences at the Vogue and the efforts of the wonderful volunteers there. (I saw three films at the Vogue while I was camping in the area!)

Apologies: No “Month in Blogging” section for August, as all I posted were this year’s Summer Under the Stars recommendations.
What did you watch in August? Anything great that you’d like to recommend? Let me know below!
Happy September, and I hope you have a film-filled fall!
Well, I haven’t seen ANY film from your list above, which is a rarity, but I must say I’m looking forward to reading about your adventures at the Vogue, and the movies you saw there. I went to the link, and it looks like a very cool place to see a movie.
As for MY movies for the month: I saw a total of 18, and my favorite ‘new to me’ would have to be ‘Village of the Damned’, and my worst would be the remake of ‘The Vanishing’…not since ‘Alien: Covenant’ have I seen such a collection of brainless morons!
Village of the Damned is a GREAT choice for favorite discovery of the month! I need to add that to this year’s Halloween re-watching!
Next, of course, I have to check out ‘Children of the Damned’…not sure where it stands in the ‘Damned’ series, but I’m hoping it’s just as…well, damned.
And yes, not a bad choice for Halloween!
Children of the Damned is also quite good. No more glowing eyes, but plenty of eerie mood, if memory serves! Definitely worth watching.
