Try to think out of the box! Great choice Ashleigh!
As many of you probably have noticed, I have watch and reviewed 38 of the 63 titles recommended to me for my latest Movies From the Hat Series in my countdown to 3500 reviews.
I hope to reach that mark sometime before the middle of November. Thanks again to everyone who pitched in for it.
In November, I also hope to begin my Oscar feature from last year retitled 90 Days of Oscars series where I will watch and review 1 Best Picture Oscar Nominated film a day. This year, some of them will be one’s Ive already seen but have yet to review, but I hope the majority will be brand new ones for me (prior to 1945)
In addition, as I’m sure many of you have noticed, October was a down month for me reviews wise since I ony watched and reviewed 45 films this month.
The reason is twofold; firstly, the Jewish holidays took up the first half of the month, so that limited my free time to watch and review.
Secondly, I’ve had some personal issues that I’ve been dealing with over the past few weeks; a bit over a month ago, my wife was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and the running to doctors, treatments and even helping more out with the kids and household chores has also taken away from my available time to watch movies.
I’m not sure what the future will bring, but I plan to continue my reviews, so don’t fret if you don’t see me around every few days or so… Its just because I’m delaing with other things in life.
My wife O and I appreciate all the moral support that we’ve received from my blogging friends who knew about the situation and I hope you can all keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery back to her healthy self.
Once again, thanks to everyone who visits here because without you guys, this site would never have blossomed the way it has over these past 4.5+ years.
