2 Years Anniversary
It is that time of the year again. On Saturday I could celebrate 2 years of blogging.
Last year at this time I had just posted a review for number 172 (then number 159 “The Man in Grey”) while the most recent post is “Rope”. It is number 221, but counts for me as number 218 and used to be number 207. That means that I have climbed 48 movies up the List or 5 years from 1943 to 1948 over the past years. More or less the same as I did last year.
I also finished catching up between what I have seen and what I have written about (11 movies), finally getting that out of the way.
New movies were added to the List in the autumn causing a massive and at times confusing renumbering of the titles. 9 new films were added within the period I had been covering and I watched these as well.
Danish films have started to crop up in my edition of the book and in this past year I covered 3 of them.
That totals 71 movies since this time last year. I am okay with that. It is not a race after all.
I have not really planned anything new on the site although I am starting to get fed up with the boring default design I am using. So maybe one day I will freshen things up a bit. Though no immediate plans.
For about a month the world cup conflicts seriously with my movie watching. The games are played exactly in the window where I can seclude myself with my movies forcing me to be creative and selective. But hey, it is just a month and meanwhile there are some seriously good games on. We did not qualify this year because we have a crap team, but that means that the media are free to cover all the other teams and consequently this is a more interesting tournament to follow than usual.
Anyway summer is on. Outside temperatures will soon approach 40C and the humidity is racing upwards. It is nasty outside so close the shutters, start the air con and put on some old movies.
