August 2012

The name’s Templar — Gay Templar.

No, wait…

A two-note month

This month’s viewing has been dominated by two things: on the one hand, sport — much to my surprise, I got very involved in the Olympics (and, currently, the Paralympics); and on the other, ’40s series B-movies from RKO. After taking in the first two Saint movies last month, I continued through the remaining six, and then straight on to the similar Falcon series, which I’m currently almost halfway through.

It makes for a pretty successful month in terms of my overall goal. Watching twelve features, on top of July’s ten, means that I’ve moved from 16 off last year’s pace (at the end of June) to only four behind. September 2011 was a weak month (just four films), so when I surge on with the Falcon after the sport ends, I should be well on my way.

Next time on the all-new 100 Films in a Year monthly update…

Even more of the Falcon — there’s another seven left yet — but hopefully some other films too!

As I noted, last year’s September was poor, so I could well see myself pushing ahead. #100 in November? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
