I didn't go to the cinema this month for various reasons. My brother was sick. I was sick. Basically everything went south on this month and it took a great toll on myself. I hated that. November was probably the hardest month in 2017 for me. I wish I could undo and do it better. I'll spare the details in the yearly recap. Soon!

The movies I watched were pretty nice. I finally finished La La Land after three attempts to finish — I think I have a short attention span. It was magical, but I kind of feel underwhelmed. Whiplash was far superior to me but this one gets more half stars because the songs are so good and I am so smitten by the opening sequence. Will Emma Stone's performance stood the test of time and be A Classic™? We'll see.

I also finally got to check Deepwater Horizon and boy, it did blow my mind away. It was amazingly well done. I heard the budget went very very high yet halfway the movie went I wonder where they are. BAM. The explosive scenes are top-notch. The story is also pretty good. It kept me on the edge of my seat and the casts did well. Unexpectedly, I like it.

With everything happening in my life, somehow the reminder to post the monthly recap gets relegated to the very back of my mind. Guess I'll save everything for the year-end recap. I am currently well despite some gastritis problem and I'm hoping you are. Also I've been behind in blogwalking and I felt bad considering how warm your response to my previous post but I promise I'll get back to you soon. I promise.

October was adventurous. Revisiting old faves and checking out some much-hyped movies from earlier years. I managed to catch Thor: Ragnarok which was super fun. Kinda regret I didn't go to do the second watch (hopefully soon! It's still in theatres!). Everyone looks like they're having the time of their lives and afterward I came out of the theatre grinning from ear to ear. It's a bit bummer that the movie went the usual Marvel-esque typical story by the last third but everything is amazing. Thor gets the movie he deserves. Well done, Taika Waititi.

I also checked out the critically acclaimed Blade Runner prior to its sequel in which I missed alongside Wind River. So bummed. I grew up with mangas and animes inspired by Blade Runner and I have to say it's even better than every inspired work after. Years after and it's still hold up. The cinematography is perfect, the realm is even better. Then, to a friend's recommendation, I watched Ghost in the Shell for accompanying material to Blade Runner. Strangely they fit together rather seamlessly -- with GitS being the inspired work et al. It was somewhat surreal experience and I enjoyed both a little too much. I am so going to repeat that.
