2012 is one-third done already. Honestly, where does the time go?
March hasn’t gone quite as well as previous months, with 11 films watched. Nonetheless, 11 isn’t bad at all — the average needed to reach 100 by the end of December is just eight, and I ‘only’ watched 10 in January, and with a boost of 13 from February I’m still well ahead of target (which, for the end of March, is 24).
Things feel worse than they are because I haven’t really been writing or posting reviews. Just five all month, in fact, which has left me with a quite extraordinary backlog of 36. And to think, the reason I started that “coming soon” page was because I’d reached a ludicrously high number of unposted reviews, and that number was 10. Shame on me, etc.

Every last one of those is courtesy of Sky Movies, the lingering after-effect of the Oscars. That’s gone now though (I think), so it’s time to start work on my DVD/BD pile and LOVEFiLM’s whims. I should start (as mentioned last month(!)) with those Marvel films I’ve not watched. Other than that, I make no promises. And it would be foolish of me to even promise them, based on my track record.
