I’ve got a slight change to my current post schedule that I want to share. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a few weeks and I’ve decided to make a change. I’m going to stop posting on Monday evenings with a list of films I’m going to watch in the upcoming week, that will become part of the Wednesday weekly update. Instead, I’m going to move the film review to the evening and every Monday morning I’m going to write a post about a monster movie that I’ve watched, and call this Monster Mondays.

I’ve not seen that many monster movies, but I like what I’ve seen and want to see more. I’m thinking of things like Godzilla, Gamera, The Fly. Stuff like that, and will be writing informal reviews about them. So if you have any great monster movie recommendations, send them my way. Next Monday, I will start with Gamera, as I’ve had the box set since my birthday but not had a chance to watch it just yet.

That’s the biggest update I have this week. I can’t believe it’s November already. I was hoping to take part in the NaNoWriMo this year, which is the challenge to write a novel during November. I have something I’ve been plotting in my head and have some notes jotted down. I didn’t start it on Monday, but I’m going to be starting it soon. I’m going to try and write 300 words a day at first. Just to get back into the swing with writing fiction as well as something easily achievable to start with. I don’t have a title for it just yet, but the working title is The Painter. That will change at some point.

Last night I watched Fantastic Mr. Fox, which was the last Wes Anderson film I needed to see. I honestly don’t know why I put it off for so long, I absolutely loved it. There will be a review going up tomorrow. On Friday I’m also going to be ranking all of his films, and may review a couple that I haven’t already over the next week or so.

Tomorrow morning I will be writing a post about books I haven’t read, but really should. I have a degree in English Literature, and yet there are some undeniable classics that I just haven’t read for one reason or another. My plan is to revisit the list at some point in the future and see which ones I’ve read and what I thought of them. I’m hoping it will be interesting to read.

That’s it for updates this week. I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week. Thanks for reading and until next time,
