Marathon news

There always comes time to face reality. This is the final weekend of August, meaning that the summer is, alas, coming to an end. Those super charged blockbusters that graced the silver screens for the past 3 1/2 months are leaving the multiplexes for what we hope will be some captivating dramas soon to be released this fall and winter. Along with the final weekend of August comes the final entry in the 'Homemade Summer Movie Marathon' (Memento, reviews here). I hope you enjoyed the marathon. It seemed to attract a decent amount of comments from readers and fellow bloggers, all of which I very much appreciated.

Now with the fall just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about what's coming next. Not long ago there was a poll question asking readers to choose between the continuation of the Satyajit Ray marathon or a new Apichatpong Weerasethakul marathon. Well, guess what: the poll ended in a draw! We at Between the Seats will have to think a little bit about how to approach this unique situation, although I am certain a suitable compromise will be reached.

The Rambo marathon with Bill from Bill's Movie Emporium should be up and running in the coming weeks (yeah, I do remember posting earlier this summer that that marathon would start in late July, but, you know, stuff happens). In the meantime, I'll be posting a few random reviews and articles to keep the activity here lively, but fear not, the marathons will return in full very soon.

As always, thanks for visiting.
