New Year, New Ways

Happy New Year, everyone! This is a late greeting and question but how did you spend your holidays? I spent mine attending family and office events, going on trips and even a bit of time in the emergency room (nothing too serious). 2012 saw the birth of (after changing it so much) The Film Sloth. At first I used to keep all things film back in my personal blog but after seeing that my personal blog has branched into more film-and-travel oriented, I decided to keep my film blog separately. There has been changes, relapses and a bit of stagnant motion. I was in a long writing rut, but I'm starting to ease out of it. Which now leads to...
I haven't been consistent when it comes to content management on this site, so being consistent is my first goal. I've neglected my quick links for a long time so I think it's time to re-evaluate my blog and see what direction I should take it to. However, I don't want to be consistent for the sake of being consistent, which leads to goal number two! For the past months I've been toying around with establishing a ranking system for my reviews and I think it's time to actually have one. I think having a ranking system somewhat sums up the point I'm trying to derive. Lastly, is to dive into more unseen flicks and watch! I've been watching a ton of films over and over lately (particularly Lord of the Rings - it's always on television!) so my goal is to have less re-watch and more new ones. 2013 is looking to be another good film year, so hopefully my goals push through. Lastly...

An award! Mettel Ray has kindly nominated me for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. All I can say is thank you. It took me by surprise, and to be nominated by one of the most inspiring bloggers out there is just...wow. Again, thank you.

Here are the rules:
- I have to display the award’s logo on my blog.
- I have to link back to the person who nominated me.
- I have to list seven things about myself.

1. I have an 'author-syndrome'. It's when I read a good book by a specific author then I go and find all their other works.
2. I (somewhat) memorize the lines in an episode of Friends and the movie Parent Trap (Lindsey Lohan version).
3. I like the color yellow, but I don't like yellow clothing.
4. I'm afraid of heights and yet I ride cable cars.
5. A movie that I could never watch the second time is 'Crazy Stupid Love'. And 'Like Mike'.
6. White cheddar is my favorite popcorn flavor (aside from butter).
7.  I am not a beach person. Never liked sand on my feet. 
- I must nominate some other bloggers, link to them, and then let them know that I have done so

  1. Thanks for the kind words and I hope to see you a lot more this year! Keep up with the ranking system thing, trust me, I changed mine about 4 to 5 times last year and finally settled with one I actually love so sometimes it takes time. :)

  2. Thanks so much! I know a lot of lines in Friends by heart too, I think I never watched any other show more often than this one ^^

  3. Thank you kindly! I'm not a beach person either - which I suppose is weird because I live in NZ where there are beaches all around, haha. Sand is majorly annoying.

  4. Thanks again! My work is done and, surprise, since I received two different blog awards in quick succession, I've merged the results and am passing one of them back to you. Congrats! You get to come up with seven more facts!

    PS: I think I have the bulk of Parent Trap down too...

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
