Wow, it's been a long time coming. There was a lot of films watched since the previous 'next ten films' post. In addition to all the franchises mentioned, I've also ensured that all the films have been watched, along with a summary of the series at the end. I had to find room for the Marvel/DC face-off in the middle of July too with Spider-Man and Batman.
There were a lot of highlights over the last six weeks. I love The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy, so for the first film to be on the list it was a treat. For me, they weren't five star films because of how and where they ended, but I still enjoyed the story. Of course, The Godfather & Part II and Gone with the Wind are instant classics.
For me, the most disappointing were The Gold Rush and Ghostbusters. The Gold Rush because after praising old films a few weeks ago on my hijack of Arlee Bird's blog, it just didn't live up to my high expectations. As for Ghostbusters, well with all the hype I guess I just expected far too much. It was funny, but I just didn't really see the point.
As for the next ten, well I must confess I've already watched some of them and have reviews scheduled (see below!), but for the purposes of this I'll pretend that I haven't! I'm looking forward to Good Will Hunting because it has Robin Williams in it (one of my favourite actors). Following the crime in the last ten, GoodFellas should be a hoot too. Although it's not the oldest on the list, I hope that Grapes of Wrath can restore my faith in the pre-Second-World-War era, coming with high recommendations from my Grandfather.
Also, let's not forget the fourth Bourne film. Although Matt Damon won't be included, I don't doubt that the film will follow its predecessor's greatness. A review for that will be out later this month, along with a summary of the Bourne franchise, including Robert Ludlum's books.
Finally, I've switched to scheduling posts for every other day. I found that posting every day was just too much work, but I watch too many films to not post regularly! It also enables me to work on those posts that aren't review-related nice and early. Work on this post began in early July so that I'm not too bogged down in the future.
So until next time!
