May was a bit of a return to form for me, as far as movies are concerned. I managed to get 30 viewings into the month and an astonishing (for me) 5 theater viewings.
Unfortunately for my bank account, it was also my most expensive month so far. Between the $157.52 and all the lost minute expenses I incurred for Indy PopCon at the end of the month, I really think I need to start budgeting my money more. I’ll worry about that on my own time. For now, let’s break down my month in movies. Continue reading
My friends and I have been dedicating the month of October to the horror genre and calling it Shocktober for several years now. I started this blog in February and from the start I was excited about sharing my Shocktober experience with anyone and everyone.
I have been saying for a while that this year has to make up for last year’s abysmal performance. I had it in my mind that I barely watched anything last year.

I am really late with this but, alas, here is my breakdown of the movies I watched in September.
I had 11 viewings last month and was fully prepared to go on the defensive. I was going to talk about how the TV season really destroyed my chance of watching many movies, not to mention the additional time I put into getting the podcast out every week.
Then I looked through my records and, as it turns out, September 2013 was my best September on record. It’s not saying much considering it’s only 11 viewings. But I’m pleased. Read on for my analysis of the month. Continue reading
