I know that there were some weeks where I didn’t go to movies, so maybe the barrenness of mid July is true to life. Not a bad month, certainly.
Category: 12 Months of Movies
June and July: suspiciously light on ticket stubs. Is my diary lying to me? Will the internet reveal the hidden secrets? Only a quick search that I am presently too lazy to make will provide the answers!
June 2006: notable for the Sydney Film Festival, and one particularly excellent film.
May was a lacklustre month.
According to my ticket diary, April was a pretty lacklustre month. It contained not just one of my favourite films of the year, but also one of my favourite films period. Yet it seemed so … underwhelming … by comparison to other, party, months.
Nazis were clearly popular at the movies this year.
Not a bad month at all, February 2006 marked the beginning of the Oscar movie season in Australia.
I have kept most of my movie tickets for the year. If there are any I haven’t, I’ll look up the movie release dates and see if I can fit them somewhere in the timeline.
Keep in mind also that this is an Australian list: some of the films may technically be 2005 releases, but they were not released here until 2006. Therefore they make my list.
So, without further ado, let’s kick off 2006 with its first month: a month of cowboys, geisha, Nazis, terrorists and reds under the bed! This is a personal list, organised chronologically. It’s by no means encyclopaedic, but it puts the year into some sort of perspective.
