    My 1,500th Letterboxd review.

    10/10.

    During PRIDE month in 2021, I saw lead actress/ writer/director of Black Lake (2020-also reviewed) K/XI present a list of her favourite LGBT films. Seeing Perfect Blue (1997-also reviewed) after K/XI mentioned that it was her favourite film,I asked her what were her top favourite movies from the LGBT films list she made. Which led to me marking 1,500 reviews on Letterboxd, by meeting Carol.

    My 1,000th Letterboxd review.

    10/10.

    When discussing Black Lake (2020-also reviewed) during the online Cine-Excess festival, writer/director K/XI mentioned Perfect Blue being her favourite film. With Black Lake being my favourite release of 2020,I decided for my 1000th Letterboxd review, to discover how perfect this blue is.

    "If someone wants to destroy themselves, society should allow him to do it."

    9/10.

    After seeing the film on Netflix UK,I was pleased to spot that BBC iPlayer had recently put the superb Short Term 12 on for streaming. After watching Short Term 12 (2013-also reviewed) again,I took a look at the other titles on the site (in August 2016) ,and found a tough-sounding Nordic Drama,which led to me booking a ticket to Oslo,for August 31st.

    The Bewitched Goddess.

    10/10.

    When looking at the quartet of 88 Films Shaw Bros Blu’s I had waiting to be played, this one stood out of the pack, thanks to it being the lone non-Action flick, which led to me meeting this goddess.

    Whilst sadly not featuring any extras, 88 Films present a very good transfer, with the audio being clean, the English subtitles being well paced, and the image quality of the print being fittingly…

    10/10.

    Seeing it get mentioned on various sites,I on Thursday went to the online FrightFest site to decide what my first viewing of the event would be. Looking through all the plot details for the movies playing/streaming on Friday, this was the one that had the most enticing photos and outline, which led to me witnessing dawn break.

    Finding The Fugitive (1993-also reviewed) to be a white-knuckle Thriller, I took a look at the other films on Dan Murrell's Patreon Movie Club line-up, and noticed a title that I remember being praised in a review from UK film magazine Empire, leading to me breaking the glass.
