Boy, four months of 2013 have come and gone. But as you can see from my banner photo, Winter is still not through with us yet. Yep, we actually still have snow/slush on May 1st :(
But enough with the weather. April was actually been a pretty good movie viewing month for me, thanks to Mspfest! Though I didn’t get to see all of the films I set out to see (thanks thundersnow!!) such as Mud, The East and Trance, I still got to see eight of them and most of them are excellent!
Now blogging-wise, it’s quite an exciting month as I was nominated for three LAMMYs!
I was floored that I was in the running for the Big Kahuna, a.k.a. Best Blog, so THANK YOU to everyone who thought of me and my wee blog. I was thrilled to see the Small Roles, Big Performances was nominated as well, that award belongs to EVERYONE who participated! The most rewarding one for me is the Best Community Builder nomination, as to me, one of the greatest aspects of blogging is being part of a film community who shares my passion for movies. Thanks again everyone, this is the time where I’ll say, I’m so honored to be nominated! :D
Now, here are some of the posts you might’ve missed from this past month:

New-to-me Films Watched:
The Angels’ Share
In A World
Iron Man 3
Not a lot of re-watches this week, I only rewatched Gladiator and parts of Superman: The Movie as part of my Man of Steel countdown. I did see a few episodes of Doctor Who, I quite like David Tennant who’s undoubtedly the most popular Doctor. I enjoyed the show, it’s amusing but no I didn’t become obsessed with it like a lot of people do. I’m mainly waiting until the season finale with Timothy Dalton, ahah.
Well, overall I didn’t see as many films as I would’ve liked, in fact I only rented a single movie the entire month. But hey, I did get to see more independent films in the last three weeks than I usually do in months, so that’s always a great thing! I actually still have a few screener dvds of independent films I have yet to watch but hopefully will get to in the next few weeks.
Movie of the Month:
I’ve done writing my review of this one, and after letting it sit for a couple of days, this is definitely the film I’m most impressed with in April and will surely end up in my Best list of the year. It’s not necessarily a ‘favorite’ movie that I’d love to see repeatedly, but it’s certainly one I’d highly recommend.
Well, that’s my monthly recap folks. What’s YOUR favorite film you saw in April?
