Reviews and it’s almost Christmas

So today I’m going to see the new Spider-Man film, which may be the most anticipated film of the year. The screen looks like it’s already full on the cinema website and there are screenings like every 10 minutes all day. I’m excited to see it, and I’m sure it’ll be entertaining. Most of the Marvel films are. I’ve not read that much about it and I’ve mostly avoided spoilers and information online, so I’m going in pretty much blind.

It’s such a big film that nothing else new is being shown near me and it’s the same next week as well. It’s all Spider-Man and then you add The Matrix into that as well next Wednesday and there’s no choice. At least there’s streaming sites with The Hand of God out today on Netflix, which I’ve been looking forward to. At least I’m going to have time to catch up on some of the DVDs I’ve had sitting on the shelf for a little while now. It feels like most of my upcoming reviews will be filling in gaps that I’ve never seen before.

Last Friday I went to see West Side Story with Tabby and we were the only two people in the entire screening and it wasn’t a small screen either. It felt a little awkward to be honest, because it was the last showing of the night and the staff clearly had to wait for us before they could go home. I chose that one because it was the only showing that started after my shift ended. It was good to see it with no distractions but a little strange to see an epic musical in a big room completely alone. It’s not the only showings we’ve done alone this year. Earwig and the Witch and Blu Bayou were both completely empty as well, but they were much smaller rooms so it felt cosy.

I’m hoping to get ahead on everything over the next week or so, and then I can continue putting up reviews without a break over Christmas. I don’t know if anyone will want film reviews over Christmas, but my plan is to still put them up as normal. I’ll probably be watching films over Christmas anyway.

With exercising and fitness, it’s been slow going. Last week I was on my late week at work and due to a lack of sleep it was pretty much get up just before work started, work, then go to bed and not sleep. I still managed to get around half of my needed steps each day, but not as many as I’d like to. I’m hoping to get back into the habit of things and hopefully catch up on sleep soon.

That’s my update for the week, not much to talk about at the moment as my main focus is to try and get ahead on everything to start the new year in a good place.

Thanks for reading, and until next time,

  1. Ugh, not getting enough sleep. That’s no fun. I’m sure you’ll get back to your walking-steps goals soon because you seem awfully determined!
