It was suggested that I make a weekly weekend post about the movies I’ve been watching in the last week. Well, here it is! Also, I’m going to keep this from just being a flat list of the things I’m watching, but sharing brief, two-sentence thoughts on the stuff I’ve consumed.
This week was an odd one in terms of movie-watching. I’ve had spotty access to the TV and so I haven’t been able to get to the things I really wanted to watch (like Fanny and Alexander) and the stuff I did watch was with the understanding that I might be interrupted.
Inglourious Basterds (Blu-ray) - My umpteenth re-watch, and so much damn fun. I really cannot get enough of how ceaselessly brilliant this movie is.
Snow White and the Huntsman (Cinema) - Totally, absolutely surprising movie. I really enjoyed it and am aghast at the poor reception its gotten from most people. You can read my review here.
(500) Days of Summer (Blu-ray) – I put it on thinking I’d only get to watch the first 30 minutes and ended up watching the whole thing. A wonderful film that I identify with far more than I care to admit.
Prometheus (Cinema) - A flawed film, but one that has really settled in my mind as a worthy science fiction epic.
So that’s what I’ve seen this week. Not all that much, but a good selection. Let me know what you’ve been watching in the comments below. Anything I should be checking out?
