I realized this blog went untouched for most of the second half of this month. It’s not that i have a writer’s block, mind you, but i have to devote most of my time for my graduation on the 17th (YAY!) and my annual share for Pre-Departure Training for Indonesian Contingent as the alumni of a youth exchange program, just like i did last year too. I was part of the program 5 years ago, but i’m still a part of the active alumni and October through December is what we called SSEAYP season, because the program took place in those months each year. (You can take a glimpse about what i’m yammering about on SSEAYP ID).
Towards the end of the month i manage to watch several movies including Captain Phillips, The Butler, About Time, etc. I did not have enough time to catch Violet & Daisy as well as Thanks for Sharing when it was screened (still bummed out about it). But let’s save the reviews for November. For now let’s look what KaramelKinema have in October
New movies seen in October (locally released in Indonesia Cinema)
Metallica: Through The Never | Rush | Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 | Gravity
October marks the 5th and last month of The 5 Obstructions Blogathon created by Nostra from Myfilmviews. Write anything that is not a review brought me to my thoughts about the 2013 Q! Film Festival i attended.
October began with a little joy, seeing Yen Tan, the director of Pit Stop retweet my review on @PitStopTheMovie timeline. It made my month! (i didn’t care it was only the 4th)
How was your October? I hope you had a great time, because we know pretty soon we would be bombarded by great films ahead of us ready to compete for the upcoming awards season. What movie are you looking forward to? I think i had one that i’ve been waiting for, happy november, and may the odds forever in your favor! *hint hint*
