I have a slight hypothesis: My movie-watching will go down this year compared to the last two.
It could just be that I had a busy week, and that this slight dip in my habit won’t be representative of 2013 on the whole…or this could be a sign of things to come. Now that said, I think I need to give my head a shake if fifteen films in eleven days (including three screenings this week) qualifies as “down a bit”…but time will tell.
Likewise, if my viewing habits are due to take a dip, I should probably make a concerted effort to watch more new than repeat. So far I’m out-distancing myself in the wrong direction, but that should level off. Part of the reason for the imbalance is that I’m still working my way through Christmas gifts, and all of those are obviously films I know.
Geez, the trends I notice already!
Here’s The Week at Hand…
STORIES WE TELL - This will be playing Sundance this month and rolling out across the states throughout 2013. Look for it and thank me later.
REBELLE (WAR WITCH) - Canada’s Oscar nominated entry for Best Foreign Film. Not my favorite of the ones we’ve put forward in recent years.
ZERO DARK THIRTY - Anyone who thinks this movie is “pro-torture” didn’t watch it.
Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Watched Before
ROSEMARY’S BABY - Got the Criterion blu-ray for Christmas. Lordy does it ever look splendid.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER - This is my hypothesis for the first Avengers films one should watch.
IRON MAN - Then this.
IRON MAN 2 - Then this, although on rewatch Stark’s involvement with S.H.I.E.L.D. feels a little underdeveloped.
