January recap

January has been a good month for me, but I wish I would have done more and seen more movies. You'll see I like to count and take into consideration more cultural aspects of my previous month, so you'll get the numbers for TV shows, books, audiobooks, and other similar interesting experiences. I am going to start counting BBC series as movies, because the length and quality of the story and production fit into a movie category, from my point of view.

Film&TV shows: 
Animal Kingdom[2010]
L'amour fou[2010] documentary
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo[2011]
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy[2011]
Bill Cunningham New York[2010] documentary
War Horse[2011/2012]
The Artist[2011/2012]
Sherlock[2011-2012]- BBC series- seasons 1&2
The Skin I live in [2011]
A separation [2011]
Birdsong- BBC series [2012]
Sirens- Channel 4 series [2011]

Extra: Misfits season 3 [2011] - all night marathon at a local cinema theatre (a great experience and very cool TV show)

Books: 3
Audiobook: 1 "Casanova" read by Benedict Cumberbatch- the voice that man has....wow!

New blogs I discovered (you should check them out)
Sati at Cinematic Corner
Wilde Dash- she has her own music blog http://popcandyarcade.blogspot.com/, showcasing great and new music to me, but also contributes to the film blog http://www.loveandsqualorfilm.com, which is very good!
