January is always a month where I play catch-up on some of the previous year’s releases. I was particularly successful at playing catch-up this year (though there are still a few titles I need to see). I made several trips to the theater, which resulted in FandangoNOW vouchers, which I then used to rent movies like my now-favorite of 2018, Blindspotting. With all of that … Continue reading January 2019 in Film
I don’t think I’ve ever been so glad to be done with a year as I am to be done with 2018! But before we forge ahead and tack up our new 2019 calendars, let’s take a look back at what was watched in December. New-to-me viewings: 20 Re-watches: 14 Total for December: 34 Total for 2018: 216 December was one of my larger viewing … Continue reading December 2018 in Film
November was a weird month. The bulk of my viewing came from a Twilight marathon weekend with my sister and an enormous collection of Christmas movies watched with the family over Thanksgiving. In a genuinely heartbreaking turn of events, work kept me too busy to make the best of my final month of FilmStruck; I barely made a dent in my queue and what I … Continue reading November 2018 in Film
October is the spookiest month of the year, but it was also the most successful month of the year for me, in terms of viewing. I finally broke my slump, with 32 films watched! On to the wrap-up… New-to-me viewings: 20 Re-watches: 12 Total for October: 32 Total for 2018, so far: 154 The new-to-me list: Safe in Hell (1931) Seven Doors to Death (1944) … Continue reading October 2018 in Film
The last Collection Update on TMP covered acquisitions from March through June. Since then, I’ve had a birthday, run across some wonderful thrift store finds, and taken advantage of a few Criterion discounts. Here’s everything that I’ve added to the collections since June! Books Chaplin by Robert Manvell Debbie: My Life by Debbie Reynolds and David Patrick Columbia The Devil to Pay (Ellery Queen pocket … Continue reading Collector’s Corner: Collection Update, Vol. 7!
In this installment of “Lindsey apologizes for being a delinquent viewer and absent blogger”… You guessed it, another tiny viewing month for TMP! Working several jobs is no joke, y’all. I’m trying to schedule my time more wisely and hopefully make room for plenty of spooky viewing in October, but before we get to that, a look back at a miniature movie month. New-to-me viewings: … Continue reading September 2018 in Film
Happy September! The first day of fall (the inarguably best season) is approaching in just a couple of short weeks. But before we pour the apple cider and bundle up in our scarves, let’s take a look back at my end-of-summer viewing in August. New-to-me viewings: 9 Re-watches: 5 Total for August: 14 Total for 2018, so far: 115 The new-to-me list: The Equalizer 2 … Continue reading August 2018 in Film
I’ve had a lot of lackluster viewing months this year, but I think July takes the cake. While I enjoyed everything I watched, I didn’t watch a single classic film! I went to the theater a few times and had a couple of movie nights with my sister, but not a whole lot of time was dedicated to film this month. It’s been a stressful … Continue reading July 2018 in Film
Happy July! July brings sweltering temperatures, fireworks, lots of trips to the ice cream shop, and my birthday! But before we have fun with any of that, let’s take a look back at what was watched in June. June was one of my better viewing months of 2018 so far, numbers-wise. I almost made it to 20 viewings, which (sadly) has become greater than the … Continue reading June 2018 in Film
The last time I filled you all in on the new additions to my collection was in March, so I think it’s time for another update! I haven’t been buying many DVDs, but still have plenty of items to share, as the money I would usually spend on DVDs has gone toward other fun collectibles. My mom and I recently discovered an antique mall we’d … Continue reading Collector’s Corner: Collection Update, Vol. 6!
