On Monday I’ll release the first in a series of opinion articles  where I may talk about any random film-related news or issues that pop into my head. As for new releases… they will be getting a special new home in the weeks to come but as a last hurrah for their time spent on this blog, I’d like to take the opportunity to, in 100 words or less, give my thoughts on some recent releases that I missed in my absence. So let’s start with…
