That Time Of Year

6 09 2008

So that time of year has came around again. The time where I am packing my life away to head back to university. And I just can’t be bothered to pack anything. I’m feeling so lethargic today for no apparent reason, and feel a nap coming on sometime soon.

I’ll be heading down tomorrow morning with my Dad driving me (thanks Dad), to head off on the 3-4 hour drive or whatever it may be, back down to Stafford. It is for this reason that I haven’t been posting reviews and such quite as regularly as of late, and likely won’t get back into a rhythm for a few days.

Dependent on my workload and social life when back at uni, I am hoping to start seasons of reviews. So say every Sunday I post a review in a specific theme (genre, director, actor etc.). This should be along with my normal method of, review it when I see it. These seasons should last about 4 weeks each, so 4 films per season. If anyone has any requests for seasons, please leave a comment or send an e-mail with your feedback and ideas.

Anyway, I thought I’d post this little update in the world of me, and regular service should resume soon.

3 09 2008

A space shuttle crashes on a deserted planet, with only a handful of survivors, including Richard B. Riddick, an escaped convict who was being transfered back to prison. The planet is constantly lit by three suns and seems to be entirely deserted, until the survivors start to look underground. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review – 30 Days Of Night (2007)

1 09 2008

Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost town in the U.S., where every winter the area is plunged into darkness as the sun sets, and doesn’t rise again for 30 days. Setting the scene for ’30 Days of Night’, a scene perfect for vampires to have free reign over the small, isolated town. Read the rest of this entry »
