December 2017 Favourites

Happy new year everybody and welcome to 2018! I hope everyone had an amazing New Year’s Eve. I had an awesome night spent with friends playing Jackbox Games and getting nicely tipsy on apple cider but not too messy.

I was proud of myself in the month of December because I got back into the swing of writing about film. This year has been a patchy one in terms of actually writing something of substance, but I was proud of what I wrote this month. It feels good to get back into it, and I think this bodes well for 2018. So hopefully you will see a lot more from me this year, in comparison to 2017!

Here’s a list of the films I watched in December:

I’m going to save my ruminations on 2017 as a whole for another post (which will probably be posted soon), but in the mean time, these are some of my favourite things from December 2017.

Big Little Lies
I binge-watched all of Big Little Lies since I’ve been on two weeks’ holiday leave from work, and absolutely loved it. The ensemble cast was so good but Nicole Kidman’s performance was particularly fantastic, and I’ll always love Laura Dern. I know it’s an adaptation of a book and basically ends where the book does, but they’ll be doing a second season with a new story… I wonder how that will pan out. But I’ll be looking forward to seeing these characters again after the shocking events of the last episode.

I finished my Blindspot challenge!
And I couldn’t be prouder of myself. Technically I finished it on 01/01/2018 but I’m counting this as a December win because reasons. Now it’s the time of year to be on the lookout for my next list of Blindspot films, which will be my fourth year of crossing films off my list of things to see that I really should have seen already.
