Screen Time: June 2014

I used to post a weekly update on my viewing habits, which I called ‘The Week That Was’. However, as a busy father to two young children this weekly tempo was proving a little too ambitious, therefore I have taken the lead from some other fellow bloggers and reverted to a monthly schedule instead.

I have decided to call this section ‘Screen Time’ and it will follow the same basic structure as the previous weekly edition, covering my viewing habits for the preceding month split down into the following areas:

Highlights:                            What has stood out for me this month.

Cinema Screenings:            First time watches I have seen in the cinema.

Couch Screenings:                First time watches at home.

Rewatches:                            Any rewatches, either in the cinema, at home or on the move.

TV Shows:                              Any TV Shows I am currently deep into.

Score Sheet:                          The tallies for the year, so far.

So without further ado, here is how June shook down. (more…)

The Week (more like a month and a half) That Was 11 November – 31 December

As appears customary at the start of so many of my posts I must (again) apologise for the lack of updates recently.  Life has slowly overtaken me of late mainly due to my folks have arriving from the UK for an extended stay.  Whilst this has many upsides there are also two regrettable (and purely selfish on my part) downsides.  Firstly it has curtailed my at home viewing options to almost none and secondly left me precious little time to update my two blogs.

However, things have slowly levelled off recently as we have all got into something of a groove.  I have managed to get myself slightly more organised and streamlined which has meant the screening numbers have once again started on an upward curve.  This is timely as for a while there I was slightly worried that I wouldn’t make my 200 tally by the end of the year, but as it turned out I sailed by this total in mid December

So lets get into it then and here is the tale of the tape for the last month or so.  As always you can check out my full 2012 watch list here. I have only included brief thoughts on new films rather than rewatches. (more…)
