November 2014 in Review

One more month and another year is finished. This month, I managed to experience one of my all-time favourite films in a new light, get a lot of films from this year viewed, with a few thanks to the exceptional Bath Film Festival (my first film festival, yay!). And with Bicycle Thieves, I passed 200 films which I saw over 2014. So, let's see what films I saw in the month that was November.

Blog: Drive Re-scored

If you talk to a person who have seen Drive, you will 99% of the time be told about how fantastic the soundtrack to it is. The kind of soundtrack that perfectly suits the film, that you could not imagine it with any other songs playing than those already selected. So when it was announced that BBC Three were going to air the film with a new soundtrack, re-scored by Radio One DJ Zane Lowe, it's understandable that the news was met unfavourably. Granted, a number of the people watching the film for the first time would be experiencing it without the revered soundtrack, but the intention of this is to provide an alternative experience to the film, not to put a definitive stamp on it. Also, it should be noted that Drive director Nicolas Winding-Refn gave his approval towards the new soundtrack, which is definitely worth something.

Halloween came and went, and I attempted to watch many horror films. The results didn't include as much horror as planned, but definitely included some fantastic films. This month was especially notable for one of the years best films, and without a doubt, the worst film of the year. So, let's see what films I saw in the month that was October.
