Yes, as many of you will have realised, I didn’t manage to get a review out on Friday, and unfortunately there won’t be a quiz today. A combination of what looks to be a very tough and very hectic (but exciting) year, alongside some tired apathy means I had to make a decision. Really, I don’t want just to be doing short spurts of poor quality posts followed by consistent breaks, so instead Over-The-Shoulder is being put on hiatus. Till when? Well, it’s all dependable – hopefully, I’ll be able to pop up from time to time, but some time next year I should realistically be back for good. And I promise: no breaks, no hiatuses, no excuses. Just films and TV!

Anyway, of course there was the quiz last week, so here are the answers as per usual:

ANSWERS:
  1. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
  2. Game of Thrones
  3. The Matrix
  4. 2001: A Space Odyssey
  5. The Conversation
  6. Men in Black
  7. X-Men: Apocalypse
  8. I, Robot
  9. Raising Arizona
  10. Casino Royale
  11. Thor
  12. Tron: Legacy
  13. You Only Live Twice
  14. The Godfather: Part II
  15. Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King
  16. WALL-E
  17. Lucky Number Slevin
  18. Miller’s Crossing
  19. Foxcatcher
  20. Playtime
  21. The 300 Spartans
  22. Clockwork Orange
  23. Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
  24. Another Round
  25. Poltergeist

See you soon…

    Everybody needs a break. I was thinking of taking one myself but I think I’ll manage by just slowing down with updates for a while. Enjoy some time off!

    1. Thanks Alex. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it, but I certainly don’t want to make a habit of it. Slowing down is quite a smart plan as an alternative (although I only do two reviews a week anyway – haha!). Already looking forward to eventually getting back to reviewing!

    1. Very happy that you feel that way. Means a lot. But don’t worry – I’ll most certainly be back, and, after shaking off a bit of expected rust, hopefully better than ever! 😉

    Any updates on a return? Or do you think you’re done blogging for good now?

    1. Booky! How’ve you been keeping? Ms B. and the family well? Not sure when my eventual return will be, but I am planning a little post to keep the ball rolling. Quitting is a no-go, however – it’s completely off the table! Don’t even think about it!
