So we say goodbye to the penultimate month of this hellish year. The end is now in sight, and there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. I’m just hoping that, given our luck, it isn’t an oncoming train.
With the pandemic still looming large over our everyday lives, the UK was in a near-total lockdown throughout the month of November, with only essential travel permitted only key shops and educational settings were open, and in the midst of this, I started working full-time at one such educational facility, hence why my output was restricted to the weekends.
I have managed to somewhat complete my mission statement for the month though, as I’ve covered a few streaming releases, and started paving the way to Christmas with my previous two reviews. I have plans for reviewing some Christmas classics this month, time permitting, followed by the obvious yearly Top 10, which will be a Top 5 this year.
As well as the Top 5 at the end of the year, the Major Film Reviews Awards will also see a second installment in the New Year, with ANY film I’ve reviewed this year, old or new, in contention (the Top 5, however, will remain restricted to 2020 releases).
Film of the Month: Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (2020) – Directed by David E. Talbert
Choices were thin on the ground this month, there wasn’t really a stand-out film that jumps out at me, so the choice was either this or Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, and I think I preferred this one. Not by much, but there weren’t any other choices really.
Sorry for that anticlimactic end to the month, but what else do you expect in 2020? Just be glad it hasn’t started raining frogs yet…
