The Shape of Things to Come


I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep, so please do not take this as one.

While I have obviously been deliberately taking an extremely comfortable break from writing about movies, both on account of my exhaustion and my lack of time with work, I find myself with a sudden amount of free time that might allow me to jump back just for a moment and I’m going to maybe take this moment to discuss some of my favorite movies of all time that I have not had an opportunity to write about. Just so I’m not wasting time with movies I know I don’t like.

I won’t pretend that ALL of what I want to write about will be written before I decide it’s time to go back to hibernation again. In addition to that, I have to admit that I was looking to have them all written by my birthday 25 June again but at this point, there’s no way that’s happening.

In any case, I shall put it down in writing the movies I would like to have done before I disappear again:

  • Annie Hall (1977)
  • Apollo 13 (1995)
  • Contempt (1963)
  • Double Indemnity (1944)
  • The Eagleman Stag (2011)
  • Goodbye to Language (2014)
  • His Girl Friday (1940)
  • Johnny Guitar (1954)
  • The Lady Eve (1947)
  • Playtime (1967)
  • Le Million (1931)
  • Moulin Rouge! (2001)
  • Nashville (1975)
  • North by Northwest (1959)
  • Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
  • The Rules of the Game (1939)
  • Run Lola Run (1998)
  • Suspiria (1977) – those who know me are aware that I have been very dissatisfied with the review I did put down for the film and was looking for a window of opportunity to fix that.
  • The Tree of Life (2011)
  • Vampyr (1932)
  • The Wicker Man (1973)

In the meantime while I get to those, enjoy reviews already up of movies that also line-up as my all-time favorites in case you forgot how bad I am as a writer:

Don’t call it a comeback.
