I think we can all agree that 2016 was a pretty rough year for many and varied reasons: the loss of many many, talented people; one of the hugest cluster-shits in political history occurred and continues to occur; Harambe; numerous terrorist attacks; a movie about emojis. But this first day of 2017 promises a new start, and the potential for fun and exciting things to come.
I’ll post a recap on the film things I enjoyed most throughout 2016 as a whole, but for now, here’s a selection of some things I enjoyed during the month of December. Unfortunately, I had the least amount of time in my entire blogging history to actually do any writing, or have a look at my WordPress reader, which was sad for me because I feel a bit out of the loop on a lot of things! But nevertheless, we shall power forward.
Without further ado, here are some of my favourite things from December.
Finishing my Blindspot series for 2016
It was a tough road with my relatively poor posting frequency this year, but we got there in the end. I successfully covered (‘reviewed’ is possibly a bit of a stretch) all of the films on my Blindspot list for 2016. I didn’t think I’d get there, but with some stealthy watching and writing some sneaky bullet point reviews for the final four, it was achieved. Be on the lookout for a new Blindspot list for 2017, to be published soon!
Partial Credit Podcast
Myself and my buddies Cameron and Jeremy started a podcast! It’s called the Partial Credit Podcast and it’s a monthly podcast where we generally have a chat about exciting things in pop culture, such as video games, films, television, graphic novels, et cetera. Cameron and Jeremy are more about the video games and graphic novels than I am, but it’s a fun time. We’ve only just started, and episode three has just been released! Check out our Soundcloud to have a listen. But try not to laugh too much at our goofy Australian accents, or at my secret passion for Pokemon Go.
It’s easier than I thought it would be! I’m really excited for April 2017.
This Twin Peaks teaser
I feel the need to really hold back my excitement for the new Twin Peaks revival in 2017, but after watching the above teaser, I can barely contain my hype. Director David Lynch as FBI Regional Bureau Chief Gordon Cole just eating a donut and looking bewildered. That’s the teaser. I LOVE IT! It’s such typical Lynchian weirdness that I can almost feel myself trusting the show to be good. I can’t wait.
Well, there’s my list of some favourite things for December 2016. What did you enjoy this month? Are there any posts I should check out? What films did you enjoy this month? Feel free to let me know below! 🙂
