Only busy looking :P. Happy to see it's missed though! Once we start watching films more seriously again (as in, not Apollo 18 & other absurd & easy films) I'll start updating again. Looking forward to it.

Was Apollo 18 at least worth it for the lols? I've seen it listed and considered recording it, but I can't really remember if it's supposed to be one of those so-bad-it's-funny type things. Don't wanna bother if it isn't.

It's a confession: By the time I finished the Gojira Multimatch I was totally done with Godzilla. In fact, if my feeling about it doesn't improve, the 2014 film can go stomp itself. 8-)

Yeah, I've seen a couple. I liked all of them. Wasn't over the moon about any of them, but they were nice. The silents had beautiful photography.
