I know, I’ve been slacking
I’ve been slacking with my reviews, and I know it. I attribute a lot of this to the fact that I now work for 37 and a half hours a week - something which, unsurprisingly, has had an impact on the amount of free time I’ve actually had available to devote to movie-watching (when glancing at my Movie Checklist the other day, I was shocked to discover that I didn’t actually watch anything this month till the 13th) and reviewing. Basically, I suspect that I’m going to have to impose a certain degree of self-discipline, because, a lot of the time, time that I should have spent writing has simply been spent lounging around.
At the moment, I’m doing my best to put together a dual review for the two HDScape titles I was sent, and I’ve got to admit that it’s damn hard to review something that was essentially intended to act as a screensaver! I’ve also got The Fountain to do for DVD Times, as well as Casino Royale, which I’ve been promising for more than long enough now. The 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD of Pan’s Labyrinth also arrived for review earlier this week (Wednesday), so it will also have to be added to the “watch and review” pile. I have to say that this last title is one that I’m very interested to see: I had been planning on waiting for the HD DVD release, but the only one currently in the offering seems to be Spanish, and given that the film itself is in Spanish, I suspect that English subtitles are unlikely. If the film turns out to be decent, and becomes available in an English-friendly high definition release, I’ll definitely pick it up, but until then, fuzzy old standard definition will have to do.
Stay tuned for more ramblings (hopefully)!
