Last month may have been a disaster tech-wise (smartphone not working, stuck with pre-historic Nokia for now) but I did get the chance to watch some new-releases, and even attend the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival. Noirvember didn’t happen, but go ahead and look around other blogs for your noir fix.
November was also the month the british show The Fall returned for its second series, with still three episodes to go before the finale in mid-December. As for new shows, I watched all the episodes of The Good Wife (so addictive), and started the really funny and sweet Jane the Virgin, at Nikhat’s recommendation.
In total there were eight movies this month, all new-to-me. Let’s Be Cops and What If were okay, and Interstellar was good-looking but not all that impressive. No time for mini-reviews this month so here’s the short version: Gyllenhaal can do no wrong, apparently I’m an abortion loving feminist, Viola Davis has the best arms in the business, and I now wake up every day to the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy. Here are the top 5 movies I saw in September:
