Here it is, the last day of 2015, and my blogging has not been very prolific, as you can see. I hereby resolve to correct this.
Starting NOW, I promise to post to this blog at least once a week, but I will definitely try for more. Life is too short and there are too many movies out there to watch, review, and rant about for me to neglect this blog like I have. No more.
Today I joined MoviePass and as soon as my card arrives in the mail, I am taking that baby out for dinner and movie. Of course, I will blog about my experience, and I do hope it’s a positive one. I have heard so many good things about MoviePass that I finally decided to bite the bullet. As any service out there run by humans, it’s not exactly perfect, but it seems to come pretty damn close. For us film lovers, it’s supposed to be a gift from heaven. So, I will see if this is true, and report here on what I think and whether or not I will continue with the service after the initial two-week trial period. Stay tuned, my fellow film buffs.
Also, I really went all out today and saw three films, one a relatively old one and two brand new ones. At home this morning I watched The Kite Runner on Netflix, and I will post a full review very soon. For now, suffice it to say I thought it was very good. I also trekked to my main moviehouse to see Carol, with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara; and Joy, with Jennifer Lawrence, Robert de Niro, and Bradley Cooper. Both films were very good, very enjoyable. So all in all, today was a VERY good film day, and a perfect way to wrap up 2015 and run head on into 2016.
More reviews and rants coming very soon!
