Monthly Roundup: June Movie Watching Recap

Happy July everybody! It’s been a sweltering HOT Summer the past week and looks like the trend is gonna continue. I tell you, I’m glad I live in Minnesota where 90-degree weather is not the norm as I don’t deal very well with extreme heat. I guess I wasn’t meant to live in my homeland Indonesia after all, ahah.

Well, this month I didn’t participate in any blog-a-thon after a slew of them back in May. But one of the main thing I did for the blog is open up a Facebook account for FlixChatter! Well, have you LIKED the page yet? No? Well, what are you waiting for 😉

I always love doing a list post, and this month we’ve got no less than four. Here they are in case you missed them:

This month we also lost a great filmmaker, one of the few female writer/director who have made a lot of impact in Hollywood. Here’s my tribute to Nora Ephron who passed away last Tuesday, June 26 at the age of 71.
Here are my list of movies I saw this month:

Movies I haven’t seen before:

Re-watch:
  • Rocknrolla – A fun British action-comedy a la Guy Ritchie with a GREAT cast: I mean Gerry Butler, Idris Elba, AND Tom Hardy in one movie. We need a sequel to this!
  • Sleepless in Seattle – I miss Nora Ephron already. Such an enchanting rom-com we don’t see much these days. Her dialog is just the best!

Favorite JUNE movie:

It shouldn’t surprise you right, considering my glowing review 😀 I was just telling my friends at a barbeque on Saturday how much I want to see it again!

Finally, this is the month The Dark Knight Rises comes out. Nolan, BRING. IT. ON!


So, how many films did you get to watch in June and what’s YOUR favorite?

Monthly Roundup: May Movie Watching Recap

Happy June everybody! Summer is officially here, yay! Summer blockbuster months are definitely upon us. I think starting this weekend there’ll be a movie worth seeing on the big screen practically every weekend!

But this month is quite lackluster for me. I only went to the cinema once the entire month, and even catching up on newly-released movies on Blu-ray has been slow. But like the last one, it’s a busy blogging time with no less than three blog-a-thons, as well as some other list-related posts I did. Here are some in case you missed them:

Ok, and here are the [paltry] list of movies I saw this past month…

Movies I haven’t seen before:

Re-watch:
Yes I know, it’s very depressing indeed, especially after seeing Eric’s and Ryan’s lists, I mean just look at all those awesome movies they watched! Hopefully I’ll have more time to watch a lot more movies this month, as this weekend alone I’ll be watching three new films starting with Coriolanus which I watched last night. I can tell you that after waiting nearly two years to see it, I wasn’t disappointed, full review coming next week. This evening we plan to watch Snow White & The Huntsman, and I also got the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus Blu-ray that my pal Vince lent me. I’ve been curious to see Heath Ledger’s last film.

Favorite May Movie:

Shouldn’t be a surprise to you eh? I still haven’t seen it again a second time, but we might do that once this arrives in the discount theater.


So, how many films did you get to watch this month and what’s your favorite?
