October 2011 – Relax, I interviewed a pilot once!

Following September’s relative lull, October marked a return to form as retweets from Real Steel’s Dakota Goyo and a mention in my local newspaper championed this very site to new levels of popularity. Refocussed, I charged the local multiplex with a determined look in my 3D glasses.

October was the month that I finally caught up with Abduction (low-brow pants), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (high-brow pants), Shark Night 3D (sharks…at night…in 3D), Melancholia (beautifully melancholic), The Three Musketeers (pleasurably guilty), Real Steel (surprisingly watchable), Dolphin Tale (charmingly derivative), Footloose (delightfully loose footed), Paranormal Activity 3 (properly scary), The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (pure entertainment), Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (you wont be afraid of the dark) and A Cat In Paris (painstakingly effortless).

It was also the month of the Discovery Film Festival, Hallowe’en and the start of a new career in Scotland’s premier publishing house, DC Thomson (these views are my own). One step closer to a career in print, I wrote up an article on the importance of film festivals aimed at youngsters for The Courier.

Another new avenue for my word addiction was ScreenGeek, for whom I have this month written two articles evaluating the summer in terms of both its biggest hits and its most excruciating misses.

I ended this month, like any other, with a viewing of this month’s James Bond movie for Incredible Suit‘s Blogalongabond. While The Spy Who Loved Me did little to win me over, it wasn’t the fatal blow it could have been, postponing complete indifference for at least another instalment. With Roger Moore still wielding the double internde’s, you can’t really ask fairer than that.

Film of the month: Melancholia

    Melancholia was an excellent movie, but looking at your list there are a ton of movies I still need to see!
