Happy New Year!
Did anyone see where 2010 went? I appear to have missed it.
This is the second new year’s post I’ve written, which must mean my blog has somehow made it to two years old. Wow, wasn’t expecting that.
At the start of this year I was anxiously waiting on an interview to find out what I was going to be doing for the rest of my life. I’ve now survived my first term at med school and am only 3 months away from my fourth opera with my much missed music society. Things are going pretty good for the blog too. We made it past 100,000 hits, 150 posts and 800 comments. Not bad going for the poorly typed ramblings of someone who doesn’t really know what they are talking about.
I haven’t made it to the cinema as much as I would like this year (as usual), but highlights have included Iron Man 2, Sherlock Holmes and the almighty Avatar. I am now the proud owner of a DVD of Inception, meaning I can finally catch up with the rest of the universe, and I managed to watch Toy Story 3 over the holidays, which was brilliant as expected. I am also now one of the (probably) hundreds of people who (thanks to the DVD) have seen the full alternate opening to Iron Man 2 and think Favreau totally missed a trick there.
So what’s coming up in 2011? Well, as the last post shows, I’m a little bit excited about Thor making it to our screens at last and in May you will find me camping in Leicester Square waiting for the premiere of Pirates 4. Not to mention the new Sherlock film I’ve got to look forward to. June and July are all about the comic books, with provisional releases dates for X Men: First Class, The Green Lantern and Captain America. It’s gonna be a busy Summer.
Looks like I’m going to have a lot to be writing about. Thanks again to all of you out there in the blogosphere who take the time to read and comment. I’ll do my best to keep it worth the visit.
Have a great New Years Eve everyone, see you in 2011.
