July 2014 — Ain’t no thing like me, except me!

Boyhood PosterSo, full disclosure: films took a bit of a back seat this month, while I focused on other important things like packed lunches and mocking the Commonwealth Games’ opening ceremony on Twitter.

There were no film festivals, no press screenings or interviews, just sporadic trips to my local multiplex to watch How To Train Your Dragon in every format available. (Bog-standard non-IMAX 3D is still the best.)

I did, however, manage to squeeze in the odd new release as well. I saw Transformers: Age of Extinction, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Guardians of the Galaxy on or before their opening weekends, and caught up with The Fault in Our Stars and Chef before they vanished from cinemas.

I also continued my Edinburgh Film Festival coverage with a review of The Infinite Man, though I’m still nowhere near finished with the films seen at this year’s festival.

It was a surprisingly strong month, though that’s likely because I had  to be slightly more discerning than usual in my film choices. I missed Pudsey: The Movie, Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie and The House of Magic, so my relatively fond memories of July are bound to be biased.

After all, it was the month I saw Boyhood, a film so profound and prodigious that I’m no closer to coming to terms with my feelings about it than finally getting them down on paper, let alone onto this blog. While not my favourite film of the year, it will undoubtedly prove one of the most memorable.

This month I also yomped a section of the Cateran Way and wrote about my feelings towards Marvel’s Phase Two. But mostly it was packed lunches and mocking Tweets.

Film of the month: Boyhood
