That brings my total films for the month to twenty-two! I'm very pleased about that. I think keeping the list makes me want to watch more films, and the two trips to Cooma certainly helped with that.
Surprisingly (to me) few SF films in my first month, but lots of horror. Rewatching some Hammer horror films helped push that up.
Have to say, I really enjoyed 30 Days of Night. Now I'll have to hunt down the comic series it was based on. Glad I saw Mummy 3, because now I need never see it again. It adds nothing to the franchise, I'd much rather they wrote out the Rachel Weisz character than recasting her, and while not a bad film, I was actually a bit bored by it.
I kept waiting for the reveal that Torgo had goat legs or something!
Manos is the film that's so bad it's bad. I thought watching the Mystery Science Theatre version would make it more palatable, but no, it was still an arduous and dull watch. I struggled to get through it. The MST3K guys were good, just not good enough.
Given the MST3K folk often watch these films many, many times, I think they truly earned my respect for doing this one.
