November Movie-Watching Recap and Movie of the Month

HelloDecember
It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2013, can you believe it? I knew somehow November is going to go by like a breeze. It always feel that way when I went on a trip. Hence it hasn’t been a prolific month for blogging for me, nor a movie-watching one for that matter.

But hey, I got to spend Thanksgiving in Universal Studios which was a lot of fun! It was awesome spending some quality time with my BFF and took a stroll on Pacific Beach which was only minutes away on foot from her apartment. I also got to meet Fernando from Committed to Celluloid on the day I arrived in San Diego (read his post on our meet-up). What a treat that was, wish we had more time to chat but it was so lovely to meet one of my favorite bloggers!

Great company, scenery and awesome food, it was the best Thanksgiving ever!

Well, here are some of my posts this past month:

The amount of films I watched last month is embarrassingly low, I’m hoping December will be a much better month for movie-viewing, esp. since I’ve RSVP-ed for five movies I’ve been looking forward to: American Hustle, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug, Saving Mr. Banks, Inside Llewyn Davis, and The Wolf of Wall Street, all taking place in the next three weeks! 😀


Movie of the Month:

This is an easy one as I was floored by Spike Jonze‘s latest film. I barely knew anything about it but I saw the trailer just days before I saw the screening schedule and it intrigued me. Well let’s just say this would VERY likely end up in my Best of the Year list. Such a unique love story and startlingly-honest character study, and also one of the most intriguing sci-fi drama in recent memory. Joaquin Phoenix is simply superb in an understated and soul-baring role. Oh and Scarlett Johansson‘s voice acting is worth all the hype, stay tuned for a Question of the Week post inspired by her performance.


Well, that’s my monthly recap folks. What’s YOUR favorite film you saw in November?
