Quarter Gone...

It’s such a terrible writing trait to begin with a negative, but I must apologise for my splotchy blogging lately. I haven’t been that – at least, I don’t think so – but for the lack of anything significant. What’s making me feel even more terrible, though, is the fact that three months have gone and I still haven’t seen any 2011 release. I’m rectifying that tonight, though; I’m seeing Keira Knightley’s Last Night and possibly Gyllenhaal in Source Code.
        
This happens every year, though, I feel a dearth of anticipation for new films – last year it lasted the whole year, hopefully this year is more positive. But, I’ve got other things to occupy my time in the interim of no exciting 2011 releases. I’ll finally get started on that “Pilot Me” series I mentioned so long ago, and it’s probably time to resurrect “Scene On A Sunday” and “Forgotten Characters”...but I do need to start on 2011 films. I feel like such a synthetic blogger.
          
Most of you have been watching films as you should, though, has anything wowed you yet. Or, better yet, you know my inclinations by now make a case in the comment sections for which 2011 I should see first.

Don't worry, I still haven't seen a 2011 release yet either. And considering I've been to the cinemas at least 8 times this year, that's pretty bad!

Andrew (and Stevee and anyone else who has expressed this)...

You are seemingly not alone. Box office has declined and it is agreed by moviemakers and exhibitors alike that the big problem seems to be poor quality of films.

As soon as I get home from Arizona I will do a writeup on this too, inspired by bloggers like you and an interesting piece last week in the Chicago Tribune.

By the way, I haven't ventured out to a 2011 release either...still catching up with things like "Burlesque" which I just recently reviewed (grin).

I'm not sure I've seen a 2011 film either! I think I've been catching up on Oscar films... but yeah, there isn't much out there to inspire! I haven't been to the movies in almost a month! YIKES!!!

So did you see Last Night? I'm kind of dying to know if it's worth the watch. I just went to Source Code yesterday finally, and I was weirdly in love with it. Great how Vera can do so much with such a seemingly thankless role. And my vote for bringing back a series is DEFINITELY "Scene on a Sunday." I love that one - even though I'm sure it's a load of work for you to do. :)
