I can’t name a movie of the month. I know I saw a good one. I’m sure of it, in fact. I just can’t remember what it was.
Last night I meant to watch the Kirsty MacColl doc that E-6 pointed out to me, but with today’s work schedule changing, it seemed like a bad [...]
Ugh…summer movies. What have you seen?
My movie of the month, had I been able to get this together yesterday or the night before, would have been either Miller’s Crossing or Barton Fink, both of which I saw for the first time this month. I’ve got four more movies before I’ve seen everything the Coens have done, although a couple of [...]
I have this crazy plan to watch a movie a day one of these months. I’m so behind it’s ludicrous.
This month I saw The Grey and Beverly Hills Cop, as I’m always on the cutting edge. I actually think I’ve seen BHC, but it was in my high school years that I…don’t remember very [...]
Another one I’ll probably miss most of. Dang.
For the sixth or seventh month in a row, I’ve seen very few movies. I had one in mind for this day but I’ll be damned if I can remember what it is. I have, however, been all the heck over Netflix’s House of Cards, a political [...]
Yesterday would have been so convenient for me, too. I had this in mind all last week and weekend, and…there it went.
Anyway, what have you seen? It was a video game month here, more or less, though I did see more of Deadwood and a hyper-violent Hulu show called Misfits.
Holy smacks, it’s today!
It’s been a poor month for me to even have time to see anything. Retail’s busy, and I’ve put in a lot of overtime.
Why yes, I forgot, but I wouldn’t have been able to participate on Monday anyway.
It was real light on movies here last month (and really, 2012 has been a lousy month for me catching movies in general) but I did see a bit of TV. I started Sons of Anarchy after the hundredth person [...]
Movie of the Month: The Rock-Afire Explosion (2008, Brett Whitcomb)
Do you remember the Rock-Afire Explosion? They were the animatronic rock band at Showbiz Pizza. Do you remember Showbiz Pizza? They merged with Chuck E. Cheese, and The Rock-Afire Explosion was phased out in favor of Chuck E. and his friends.
This documentary is about [...]
For two straight months now, I’ve seen very little in the way of films. I have to seriously make up for that somehow.
I’m finally going through Deadwood season 2, but otherwise it’s been a videogame month. Sometimes I think the problem is that I’ve been looking at the movies in my Netflix queue for [...]
My movie watching has been very sparse lately. However, I’m six episodes deep in Game of Thrones and I don’t feel like any movie would fulfill my entertainment needs as well as it does anyway.
Also, Breaking Bad.
I haven’t actually seen any movies recently, but I’m guessing others may have. I just wanted an excuse to laugh at translations of domestic movie titles.
Oh, I also heard Breaking Bad is back, so maybe some people want to discuss that. It certainly did well in ratings, breaking its previous high of something with [...]
Movie of the Month: The Escapist (2008, Rupert Wyatt)
So, I loved this movie…I think. It’s got a great atmosphere and mood (not happy ones, but effective ones) and the acting is superb – Brian Cox leads, and is supported by Joseph Fiennes, Damian Lewis and Steven Mackintosh, among others. It’s an Irish film about [...]
Movie of the Month: The Horde (2009, Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher)
So, this wasn’t the best movie I saw this month, but I was on a zombie kick this month, and it was the best zombie movie I saw. So there’s that.
Movie of the Month: Das Leben der Anderen (The Lives of Others) (2006, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck)
The winner of the 2006 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film certainly deserved it. Beau’s been ragging on me to see this for something like a year, and I had it at home from Netflix for three months [...]
Why, yes, I remembered to do this on Monday!
Movie of the Month: Last of the Mohicans (1992, Michael Mann)
I didn’t just see this movie. I probably saw it the year it came out, and many times thereafter.
As would be obvious even if you guys didn’t know I was an aspiring writer, if a script doesn’t capture me, I generally bail. This [...]
Movie of the Month: Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva (2009, Masazuku Hashimoto)
Now here’s something that isn’t on your radar. Based on the mystery and puzzle-based videogame series starring the title character, this film was just recently released on DVD in the states, and I have to say the writing was a damn sight [...]
Movie of the Month: The Maltese Falcon (1941, John Huston)
It’s a classic, but it moves slowly – a lot of screenwriters were still treating scripts like stageplays; the script is very talky and 90-95% of the movie takes place in just a couple of locations. Bogie blew up after this…apparently the world was ready [...]
I actually didn’t see a single movie this month – I’ve been opting for TV shows and playing a video game with the Milkmaid.
What have you seen?
