What I'm Watching: November, 2009
I'm still undead over here. I've completed the 50k goal in NaNoWriMo, and while I still have a ways to go on the book, I can at least take a break and do some other stuff, like watching and reviewing bad movies. It always feels good to reach that goal, and I did it in record time for me, this year.
To take my mind off writing, I've been watching the second season of the Canadian detective/vampire series, Blood Ties. I really love this show, and hate that it never lasted. It was way better than Moonlight was, and the second set of episodes is much better than the first. Being Canadian-made it has a little bit of a cheesy look to it, and the effects aren't great, but the writing and acting is pretty rock solid. Anyone who is a fan of shows like Angel and Forever Knight should absolutely check it out. Even better, check out the books the series was based on.
I've also just watched the new movie Franklyn, which looked kinda scifi action adventure, with a bit of Dark City flair to it. It's kinda none of the above. I'm not going to get into spoilers, but the movie is very much not what it looks like from the trailers, which was a tad disappointing. It's still a very good, thoughtful movie, just not what I was sitting down to watch. Still worth checking out.
I've found the movie I wanted to review next at a sane price, I just have to wait for it to get here, so keep your eyes peeled, the reviews will be back soon!
