April Round Up

(yup Ross, work it. via tumblr)
New films seen: 17
Rewinds: 7
Total: 24
A lot of watching, but a little writing. April has wiped me out with all the work I had to do. To be honest I don't recall much of my month besides work. It's already summer in my part of the world and let me tell you, it is hot. Scourging hot! Really missing the spring weather from nearby countries. Besides being swamped from work, I hadn't noticed that the month has breezed by. Realized that today was the final day of the month when I sat down to check the date.

What's next for May?
I may have a Mother's Day post lined up for the weekend, and a bit of high school nostalgia when I get around to it. Hoping to put some posts on queue before I go on another trip!

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.
