Now that’s more like it!

It’s funny, I’m only up three screenings from last week, but it might as well be a dozen. It actually could have been even higher if I didn’t take time yesterday to start doing Hot Docs homework and choose a three-hour Scorsese joint to make for the night’s entertainment.

I actually haven’t had a day in a while where I just stayed on the couched and watched a glut of titles. New Year’s Day was the last time I can remember doing so, and that was the occasion I chose to watch the complete Indiana Jones series. Perhaps in a few weeks when I get my recovery day from younger brother’s wedding I’ll treat myself to that.

Maybe I should start planning what I want to watch! Any suggestions for a low-effort project?


Here’s The Week at Hand…


SHORTS NOT PANTS Spring Programme – This series is definitely starting to attract some new blood, so good on James!
OCULUS – Wonderfully creepy. More on this tomorrow.

Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Never Seen
ART AND CRAFT –  (Hot Docs Screener)It should show as a double feature with AMERICAN HUSTLE.
NARC – Not quite what I was expecting.
THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE, HIS WIFE, & HER LOVER – Why did it take me so long to watch this?
BRIGADOON – FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL just got that much funnier.

Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Watched Before
THE BASKETBALL DIARIES – I wanted to get in a “playoff mood” – this was the best I could do.
BLADE RUNNER – Just cuz.
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET – Guess whose wife didn’t like it?
THE PRODUCERS (2006) – I have discovered that “assume away” will always make me laugh.
