HAPPY NOVEMBER!! I hope you all are well and enjoyed a most magnificent Halloween!
I certainly did, Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year (I love any holiday) and so I went all out this year! I used to just do easy-ish costumes, but for the past few years I have tried to go as all out as possible! Usually I do 2 costumes but this year I went for 3!
Also, oops, when you’re planning to do a blogpost on this stuff, you probably should take better quality pics. But also, w/e these are a mix of ‘at the party’ pictures and ‘the taxi is here in 2 minutes and we haven’t took pics yet’.
Somehow I managed to make it until age 19 without ever having seen any Star Wars films, or any of the TV shows, or literally ANYTHING to do with it.
Last week that all changed, when I watched Star Wars. Or later renamed, Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. (What is it with George Lucas and changing film names?! I’m looking at you Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark)
I fell completely in love with it. Even with it’s 38 year old special effects. Everything about it felt so immersive and so great.
So great I had to buy the poster.
So that not blogging until my exams are over thing is REALLY working isn’t it? I dunno, I feel very creatively charged at the minute. I was originally going to type that my creative juices were flowing …then I gagged a little.
Today I wanted to talk about a film franchise that I am head over heels for, Indiana Jones!
Before you think it, yes it does annoy me that I don’t have a matching set of DVDs. Although this makes sense, as I’ll explain. So at the tender age of 12, I watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in the cinema, having only seen Raiders of the Lost Ark years before, and I absolutely loved it. Yes really, I loved Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I still like it, I think as an Indiana Jones film it isn’t great, but as a stand-alone action adventure, it’s decent enough.
