MY 2017 FILM FEAST: May-Aug

MY 2017 FILM FEAST: May-Aug

Last year, I made a note of every film we’d watched throughout the year and shared them in a post at the end of December. It seemed to be fairly well received and it also helped us review a year through a different medium.

So I decided to do it again. Except this time, due to the entire year being quite a gargantuan task, I intended to compile a post quarterly. And then we got to April…then the end of April…and I realised I’d missed my fraction window!

So instead, here’s the second installment of a trilogy – because every good film comes in threes, right?! (Please don’t start giving me examples of when this hasn’t worked – there are far too many!)

I thought, as it was almost October, that I should get on with the summer reviews, when we enjoyed / endured another 16 films – fairly low by our standards, but I’m blaming the late release of Game of Thrones for it!

If you’d like to see what we were watching in the first third of the year, you can check it out HERE.

Inside a secretive Seoul

Inside a secretive Seoul

Well hello! Firstly, I guess I should address my absence. There’s quite a simple explanation – I’ve simply had nothing to say. Which is most unusual for me!

I mean, I have had things to say and I could have written posts or added to my ongoing Lacunae tale, but my heart’s not been in it, whether that’s down to being busy, tired or just plain lazy. So apologies… *must do better* 😉

So what have I been up to since I last posted? Well, it’s only been a couple of weeks so I’ve not changed the world or anything, but I have visited South Korea. Kind of…

Wednesday Lensday: Paper City

Wednesday Lensday: Paper City

On Sunday, we managed to catch the last day of a sculpture exhibition in and around Hull’s Humber Street. The area where the marina stands was once a dock and Humber Street was a hub for traders, particularly fruit merchants.

However, it fell into decline and lay mostly derelict for some years, before being transformed into an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, artisan cafes, music venues and art galleries.

PAPER CITY1

Above: an installation in the art gallery – blow it and it lights up in different colours!

So it was the natural choice to house the Paper City exhibit, part of the City of Culture events. The ten day display explored our relationship with paper and play, with eight artists and designers invited to create something using one of the most fundamental mediums for creativity.

So instead, I’m hoping this is the first of a trilogy – because every good film comes in threes, right?! (Please don’t start giving me examples of when this hasn’t worked – there are far too many!)

Although this last month has been light on celluloid entertainment, we have still maintained an average of just over one a week, with 21 in total.

But what were they?

My Handy Crush Saga

As it’s almost that time of year again, (and I’ve had a surge in new followers recently – hello and welcome!) I thought I’d reshare my Valentine crush post from last year.

My tastes remain the same with an added edition this year of ‘Floki’ from Vikings (not sure how I missed him before). See the guyliner reference further along for an explanation – oh and I discovered he’s a Skarsgard (Gustaf to be precise), so naturally he has good genes!

Anyway, on with the drooling…
