I’m sorry I haven’t updated this blog for so long, and even now I am running out of time to write a proper post! I haven’t seen that many movies this year to be honest (shocking!). And nope, I didn’t forget Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull -but I liked it more because it was Indy rather than the film itself; and because I was so biased watching it anyway, I thought it’d be more reasonable to leave it out. I’m sad I didn’t get to see any of Gus Van Sant’s films (Paranoid Park or Milk) but expect his films to be in next year’s top 15… And as usual, the Oscar films will be released in the next few months in France, so we’ll see at the end of next year. Until then…
I hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and happy wishes for the upcoming year -I know I’ll be fine because Revolutionary Road will be released, and it looks like another very good movie year indeed ­čÖé
