Being A Sophomore And All...

So, College: Round 2 has started. What does this mean?


1. I Have A Car! And that means I'll be able to get to the theatre a lot more. So, while I only saw three new releases last year when I wasn't on a break, I will be able to be much better at keeping up with the trends, and the reviews will come fast and furious. So, I will see Contagion. I will see Moneyball. I will see The Ides of March, Immortals, and Drive. Keep you posted.

2. French! One of the requirements for my Intermediate French class is to see one film a week. One French film, to be precise. Lucky for me, the teacher never said what sort of film. So, expect reviews of classic art house flicks, but also expect reviews of guilty pleasures and French action films. Ever wanted to know what I though of Brotherhood of the Wolf? You'll find out soon enough.

3. Keeping My Expectations About Myself in Check! Some of you may remember how, earlier in the year, I tried to do the whole posting everyday thing. Well, that proved to be too much of a hassle, but it taught me a valuable lesson: I need to calm down! So, you won't be seeing posts every day. Instead, I'm going to try and post things that are worth it. So, reviews, articles, lists, and things of that nature. I'm going to bring According to the Movies back at some point. I just need to think of lessons. Also, this term, I'm not acting in a production, but directing one, which is going to eat up a huge chunk of my time. Quality over quantity is the name of the game now. Play with me?

Looking forward to it folks. Also, nothing's been set in stone, but I'm working on a certain something that will drop in January. Hint: It involves a little town in Utah.

You're excited now, aren't ya!

I know he is!


  1. Best of luck young man - I'm sure you'll make us all proud.

  2. Ooh, nice with the French films. I should do a similar thing, I studied it in school for nine years but it's been .. several years since I finished so am really rusty. Was thinking about taking a revision class at Uni, and this film thing might be just what I need!

    One of my professors in Sociology is giving us a chance to write our essay based on a crime and punishment related film so I might grab onto that.

    It's good to set goals isn't it!

  3. Watching Bande a parte this week for the next MOTM - you seen it? If not - BAM! - there's your French flick for the week. :D

    Good idea ditching the every day restriction. If one has the time and inclination to do it naturally, I say go for it, but the last thing you want is to feel like your struggling to put something up every day.

  4. @ Ryan: I'll do my best.

    @5plitreel: It is good to set goals. Keeping them is the tricky part.

    @Dylan: Awesome! Bande a parte at some point. I already wrote about District B13, and I got Brotherhood of the Wolf up next, but I'll be sure to check that one out.
