February Round Up

yup, we're all just going to watch ezra do this. from here
New films seen: 20
Rewinds: 6
Total: 26
The shortest month of the year is already over yet it felt like the last two weeks have been awfully long. I felt like I've been repeating Friday thrice in one week, only to find out that it's either Wednesday or Thursday. After changing my wires endlessly, I decided to finally retire my laptop. I've been using it since I was a freshman in college and now's a pretty good time to retire it. I wish I could upgrade to a Macbook (like every other person here) but that's going to take a lot of saving. 

Links
I'm not going to be putting Oscar coverage links over here, but one of my favorite film bloggers has officially stopped blogging. Cinematic Paradox was one of the first ones I've read and Stevee's really good. She is going to be missed!

Here's an Oscar-related post though. Rachel and Jess over at Reel Insight launched their yearly 30 Days of Oscars in anticipation of the Academy Awards.

If you're a fan of Ally McBeal, check out Sati from Cinematic Corner's post about her favorite Ally McBeal episodes.

Besides reading books, I enjoy reading screenplays. Vulture featured David Magee's toughest scene to write in Life of Pi.

Daniel from Top 10 Films wrote about his Top 10 Female Buddy Films.

What's Next for March?
Hopefully I'll be able to write more reviews, but I'm getting a feeling it's going to be quite a busy month!
Edit: I'm contemplating on making some aesthetic changes to the blog (including the blog url). I'll be closing my blog for a day to implement these changes, but will announce the new url a week before.

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.
