October movies

October was more like it after seeing only six films in September. That was one of the all-time low total months since I started tracking my movie watching in 1998. Throw in the fact I got to see some unique movies or stuff with the cast present--Martha Marcy May Marlene or Ghost Story [make-up artist Dick Smith in attendance]--and the month was a fun one. I ended the month on a good note by getting to see William Castle's 1959 horror film The Tingler in "percepto"! Next post will be about what that means if you don't know Castle or some of his gimmicks. And, I'm not even counting the live script read of The Breakfast Club that was my favorite thing I did all month...not counting the Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark concert in downtown Los Angeles obviously!
