February recap

Honestly, as you will see below, my February has been rather dull and uneventful, especially when it comes to movies. Why, might you ask? Well, because, most of the time

Projects, dissertation proposal, flu + birthday= no time for movies :((

Luckly enough, my March is looking way better, so hopefully I will catch up on my To See list! Here's what I was up to this month:

Tyrannosaur[2011]+Q&A with P.Considine and O.Colman
Pretty woman[1990]
Thor [2011]
Captain America [2011]
The Deep Blue Sea [2011]
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998]
Elite Squad [2007] brazilian movie
Before Sunrise [1995]
Before Sunset[2004]
Wizard of Oz[1939]

Oh, yeah, the Oscars happened and yes, I did sit up all night to watch the show! Can we get over the whole awards thing now and get back to our lives? :) Thank you!

  3. Haha ^^ Thank you for the links! :) Meanwhile my tumblr is officially infested by the pics from Sunday :P

  4. Glad to have you write for the site. Your more than welcome to write for us anytime. Hopefully you'll have a far better March.

  5. @Nikhat: Birthday was great, and I do hope March is better when it comes to movies!
    @Mette: happy birthday in advance, hope you have a great time!
    @Sati: I know, I keep reblogging stuff, too!
    @Max: Anytime!

  6. I'm so over w/ award season too! Happy March and hope more good movies are released soon!

  7. Blogging becomes such a chore in awards season - I might not do it at all next year! I can't wait to see Tyrannosaur!!!

  8. @Ruth: Happy March to you, too! are you going to see Hunger Games? :)
    @Ruth: Tyranossaur is great, def check it out!

  9. You also went to a Q&A with Paddy? I was at a Lovefilm screening and got to ask him if he'll ever direct a comedy. Dumb question I know but I love Paddy's comedic performances in films. Anyway he said it's unlikely. Would have loved it if Colman was there. She was absolutely brilliant don't you think?

  10. @Pete: Your question was very good, I think he would be good for comedy! Yes, Olivia Colman was amazing in this movie and she is such a sweet, smart woman, I love her!
