Just thought I'd let you know what's going on with me and The Film Obsession in case you were as curious as that cat...
I'm almost done with the first term of the 2nd year at Sussex University doing Film Studies. Over the Christmas Period I have two essays to write - One to do with a completely separate subject, and another to do with an analysis on theories in a certain film. Maybe Silence of the Lambs with Psychoanalysis and Feminism? I think this may be quite interesting. I've already done a presentation on Freudian Theory in Goldfinger, which was probably one of the most fun presentations to complete (Including a slide on innuendos and multiple uses of the word 'phallic'). One sentence which I had to stop myself from laughing was "James Bond says Pussy Galore in a lustrous way," - Who says Film Studies isn't a real subject?
I'll also be working at HMV over Christmas. Last year I had Swine Flu so escaped that. This year is going to be mental. Already the queue is going down the aisles - Don't be put off or get angry with us, we do our best! I also have my discount card now so all these films coming out in December (Eclipse, Scott Pilgrim, Toy Story 3, Inception) will be even more anticipated!
The blog is doing incredibly well.. Scarily almost. Over 30,000 views now which is amazing. Thank you so much. A lot of my friends have started blogs now, so they've caught the bug. It's brilliant. Take a look at these:
- 360 Degress Visual Arts Project
- The White Noise Music Blog
- Simply Celluloid's Film Reviews
- Vicki Thurley's Film Reviews Appearing on The Ooh Tray
Over the next month or so, I'm going to do a list of the top films I've seen, as well as a general overlook at the year. It's been huge for the blog and for me, so it will be nice to tell you guys how really special it is for me. Anyway, enough of that sentimental crap.
Keep a look out for more film reviews coming in the next month and thank you so much for all your support so far! Let me know what you like to read and I'll keep it coming.
