Sorry, Everyone

One thing that surprised the hell out of me over the past few months was running into people I don’t see a whole lot where they said the same thing “I like your movie reviews, you haven’t posted any in a while.” I’m always surprised anyone actually reads these things but the reader-tracking stuff assures me that people do. Well I saw a whole shitload of movies back in August and I had theatre commitments and visiting relatives and then school started and even more intense theatre commitments ensues and I just fell way behind. Since the last movie I reviewed (and boy, Moonraker is not a great one to go out on) I’ve seen over 30 movies. I can’t even tell you exactly how many, though for a while I was keeping track in an attempt to try to gradually catch up. I’m afraid I’m going to have to just chalk up the last few months as a movie revies dead zone. It’s a shame because I saw quite a few new movies that for me rank as among the best of 2012: Argo, Sleepwalk with MeLooper, Cloud Atlas (I guess many disagree on that one), Lincoln, Wreck-It Ralph, and Skyfall (which is easily among the best of the entire James Bond series). Anyway, one of the advantages of going to Sacramento State is that we get an absurdly long winter break so the mvoies reviews are back on. That’s really great because this week there’s a new Quentin Tarantino movie and the big screen adaptation of an acclaimed musical. I will try to write some late minireviews of the 2012 I saw (the above-mentioned favorites as well as others I enjoyed a little less [The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Life of Pi, Farewell My QueenDredd] or didn’t care for [The Girl, The Words, The Bourne Legacy, The Master (oh, I know I’m running afoul of some hardcore cinephiles with that last one)]. Like I said, I’ll TRY, but no promises. The couple dozen older movies I watched the past couple months (including old favorites like Trick ‘r’ Treat or Little Shop of Horrors [the musical one]) will have to just go unreviewed for now. What I will say is back on the wagon for reviewing every movie I see. You keep readin’ ’em, I’ll keep writin’ ’em.
