Final Update of 2021

I hope everyone had a great week of celebrations and hopefully spending time with family. We’re almost at the end of 2021 and hopefully 2022 will be a lot better as we’re slowly getting back to normal. I have high hopes for 2022. Throughout the holiday period I’ve still been putting up reviews and trying to stick to my normal schedule. I originally thought that may be silly and next to no one would read it, but Christmas Day was my best day of the year, view wise, which was then beaten by Boxing Day. Thank you everyone who read any of my posts throughout the period.

The last week of the year is always strange, I never know what day of the week it is, or what’s really going on, then it’s all over and everything’s back to normal for another 12 months. This week, there isn’t much coming out in the cinema. Near me it’s just The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, which I’m not that excited for. The first time I saw the trailer, I thought it looked quirky and great, then it’s been shown before almost every film I’ve gone to see and I’m just looking forward to not having to watch it again.

Titane and Liquorice Pizza aren’t being shown near me, which is disappointing. Spider-Man is still reigning supreme, taking up all the screens at my local cinema. Since it’s a long weekend we may take a trip to Milton Keynes to see Liquorice Pizza. It’s about half an hour drive, so we might make a day out of it.

Other than that The Lost Daughter is due out on Netflix on Friday, which I’m looking forward to. I don’t have any other plans to watch things, so I’ll be watching older stuff that I’ve had sitting on the shelf for a while.

Other than watching films, I’ve also been playing Halo Infinite, which I’m really enjoying. I think I’m getting close to the end of it. I don’t have a lot of time to play games anymore, so it’s been a nice change of pace over Christmas. I really like the open world style and the grappling hook you get to use. I’m no good at online vs games, so I’ll only be touching the single player side. Years ago, me and my brother used to play the campaign of Halo in split-screen. We played through the first 3, which I think got worse with each one, and a lot shorter. This is the first Halo game I’ve played since then, and I’m tempted to go back and play the ones I missed. To be honest, I probably won’t, but I’m tempted.

I hope everyone has a Happy New Year! Thanks for reading and until next time,

  1. Haha, I don’t know what day it is this week either! Dear Husband and I both enjoyed The Electrical Life of Louis Wain, but it’s not for everyone. Happy almost 2022!
