Yearly Hiatus

For every year that I've been blogging, I usually take time off from writing and doing anything movie-related, but that's usually because I'm on prolonged vacations. However, I haven't been on a good area in my life for some time, and that's taking a toll on a lot of things, including this blog. As much as I would like to keep content rolling, I feel rather constricted and need a breather. So I am taking the rest of the month off from this spot, save for some posts I already had on queue. I'm still going to be dropping by your blogs, but definitely would need some time off from my space. So that's it, until August! Hopefully things will be better by then, I really hope this hiatus is just temporary.

Thursday Movie Picks: Adaptations of Classic Literature (No Poems or Plays)

It’s another entry to Thursday Movie Picks, hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves! Each week she provides us with a theme (the entire schedule for the year is out!) and we provide three movies relating to the theme. For this week, we have adaptations of classic literature. Classic literature dates back to the Roman and Greek writings, but what I initially thought of about the theme were those novels that everyone has already read or is supposed to read. For someone who loves reading, I don’t touch up on the Jane Austens, the Bronte sisters, etc. although I do try. Anyway, here are my picks this week:

06/15: Isn't it strange, to create something that hates you?

My laptop has chosen a great time to break down and I don't know when I'm going to get it back (hence no links section this month). Hopefully that would be soon as I have to draft up some stuff if I don't want to leave my space blank for the next coming weeks. How was the first half of 2015 for you? Movie-wise, it has been a disappointing year so far. My numbers are so low compared to last year's, and it seems like there's nothing much worth going to the cinema for. Either my taste in movies have shifted (though I highly doubt that), or there's a limited number of good works that have been released. I'm hoping things get better at the latter half.
