Closing Thoughts for November


November was tough. My trip to Canada made things very difficult for me to keep my eye on the ball. I got a little behind with my reviews, so I had to play catch up for the next two weeks after the trip, but it is over and December is right around the corner. I have a feeling that I am going to be right back in the same situation as November with all of the parties and family functions that normally happen during the holiday season. However, the thought of eating all the wonderful foods of the seasons, does make things a little easier.  

Speaking of November, I cannot believe how fast the month came and went. It seems like the older I get the quicker time goes. I am not sure how crazy I am about the idea, if things keep up like this, before I know it, I’ll be an 80 year old man trying to deliver my curling rocks with a stick.

My movie goal is running smoothly. I haven’t missed a beat with the viewing, I did slack a little bit with the reviews, but I am now back on track and looking forward for more. Although, recently I looked at a long term schedule and I wasn’t crazy about the idea of me still working on this around this time next year. I don’t want to do this for that long. One year is just fine. So I decided that I am going to try to sneak in a couple of movies here and there when I can. This month, I snuck in Precious and I am glad I did. Precious is a wonderful story. I was expecting a cry fest, but amazingly it was very lighthearted. Although the topic was very disturbing and very deep, they managed to turn things around and make it into an entertaining movie. The movie did not feel like they were purposely trying to manipulate your emotions. I was so impressed by it that it is going to go right into my top 10 movies of the Naughties.

I have to be honest, I am not looking forward to next month. I don’t see many movies in my schedule that I am excited to watch. Netflix swears that I am going to like many of them, but to be honest all I really see when I look at the schedule is that Fast and Furious movie. Why didn’t I put that in my Do Not Watch list? Hopefully, Netflix is right and this month won’t be as bad as I am dreading.

I hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving and I wish you all a safe and happy holiday season.
