March in Review

It’s been a hectic month. A fun month, but a hectic month.

We somehow made the finals of the Irish Blog Awards. Don’t ask us how. Culch.ie were the deserving winners, but we were just thrilled to be nominated. We also published our 500th post.

We celebrated the 75th birthday of DC Comics with a week reviewing the still rather young medium.

The twin releases of Alice in Wonderland and Shutter Island got us pondering if we gave established directors like Scorsese and Burton too much kudos. We had the pleasure of an evening with David Cronenberg. Yes, it was awesome. We even took the opportunity to ponder whether Alice, as reimagined by Tim Burton, was a feminist icon.

Outside of that, we wondered if moral guardians were overreacting to Kick-Ass and mourned the loss of the glimmer of darkness in animation (what might be deemed “Dark Disney”).

The Hurt Locker (seemingly against its own stupidity) won the Oscar. Sandra Bullock won me over. Is she indicative of a trend of older leading ladies?

It was a good month and a fun month, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. There were some very good movies released over the course of March, which has traditionally been seen as a dumping ground for crap movies, but I’ll post about that next month.

Next month, on the 11th of April, you can look forward to Desert Island DVDs, a cross blog promotion being organised by the amazing Andy (see, it’s alliterative!) at Fandango Groovers asking bloggers to pick their must-have movies. If you’re interested in taking part, let him know. It’s nice to see that sort of community. Now, if I can figure out what my eight films will be…

  1. Good month of March on the m0vie blog ;) Looking forward to even better things in April ;)

    • Thanks Castor. I think April will be a relatively quite month. Taking the Easter weekend off to just get my head straight on, and stop myself from burning out. :)
