May was another small viewing month ’round these parts, and I completely forgot that today was the first of the month, so I apologize for this post going up so late! (As I type this, there are just 40 minutes left in the day.) Though the time I was able to carve out for viewing in May was pretty minimal, I still wanted to share … Continue reading May 2018 in Film
While I’d love to say that April brought me out of my viewing slump, that wasn’t the case. The past month was my worst of the year so far — probably my worst in the history of the blog! Most of what I watched was for background noise, with the exception of the couple of classics I squeezed in, a re-watch of a 2017 favorite, … Continue reading April 2018 in Film
…And we’re back! TMP makes its grand return today with a wrap-up of everything I watched in March. I did well at catching up during the break, getting quite a few posts drafted and watching several films. I also began refreshing my DVD organization, which I’ll have a post on soon in Collector’s Corner. Until then, let’s look at the list of movies! New-to-me viewings: … Continue reading March 2018 in Film
It’s been a while since we’ve had a collection update here on the blog! The last one I shared was Christmas Additions (films I got as gifts, or bought with Christmas money). That was way back at the beginning of January. A lot has happened in the intervening time. In addition to making a few in-store discount buys, I managed to rack up a pretty … Continue reading Collector’s Corner: Film Collection Update, Vol. 5!
Happy March! Another month gone means another wrap-up here on TMP. Let’s take a look back at what I watched in February.

Usually I’m the type to think, “Wow, I can’t believe it’s already [insert month]! Time is flying!” when I make these monthly wrap-ups. But for some reason, January felt super long and slow! February brings tax reporting and Hallmark holidays, but hopefully it’ll have a bit more pep in its step than January. Though it was a sluggish month, I got a good bit of … Continue reading January 2018 in Film
Welcome to the first Collector’s Corner of the new year! Just as we did for the blog and my viewing log, we can’t really begin a new year without wrapping up the last of our 2017 business. So, here’s one last 2017 collection update. Some of these additions were Christmas gifts from family, and some of them were purchased with Christmas money. Books Behind the … Continue reading Collector’s Corner: Christmas additions!

Welcome back to Collector’s Corner, the bi-weekly series in which I discuss all things related to my film collection. It’s time for another collection update! The last one was posted in September, so this one will cover new additions from late September, October and November. In a miraculous feat of self control, I managed not to purchase a single thing from the November B&N Criterion … Continue reading Collector’s Corner: Film Collection Update, Vol. 3
