Tom and Summer
Yep, it’s been a while! Even with that week off I mentioned a few days ago there’s been a lot watched over the last few weeks.

So let’s skip the foreplay, shall we, and get straight to doing the dirty deed.

 

Here’s the three weeks at hand…

 

Screenings
STILL ALICE – So stunning; so sad.
THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS – Lightbox is doing a complete Michael Mann retrospective, so I’m headed to the four of his films I’ve never seen theatrically. This was a delight to start with.
TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT – This might be one of the most underrated 2014 films I’ve come across.
DOUBLE INDEMNITYOn an absolutely miserable winter afternoon in Toronto, a screening of this at Lightbox was almost full to the seat.
MANHUNTER – I still haven’t stopped humming In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
GIRLHOOD – More on this in the days to come.

Streaming/Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Never Seen
I WALKED WITH A ZOMBIE – Way subtler than I anticipated.
YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW – On Valentines, my Italian lass and I watched some tales of Italian romance.
LUCY – Curiously I thought there would be more action in this movie. Shows what I know!
ALL THAT JAZZWay better than I thought it would be.
DOCTOR ZHIVAGO – I can’t believe it took me this long to see this.
SOUL KITCHEN – Not sure what I wanted to do more after this: Go to the record store, or cook dinner.
WOMAN OF THE YEAR – I refuse to believe that Kate Hepburn could screw-up breakfast. Also, this is a wonderful flick.
THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY – Track it down, you can watch it over a bowl of cereal.
THE VERDICT – Not gonna lie – I wanted this to be better.
LIFEBOAT – I wonder if I’ll ever get around to seeing ALL the Hitchcock movies?

Streaming/Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Seen Before
SPIDER-MAN 2 – All of the SONY Spidey-news a few weeks ago made me long for the one film I unabashedly love.
OUT OF SIGHT – “…Oh, I see. You guys are cynical.”
LAYER CAKE – For Matineecast purposes.
BIRDMANRe-watched on the afternoon of Oscar night.
PAPRIKA – I need to start buying more anime – this is currently the only one on my shelf.
THE LOST WORLD – It just occurred to me that I never saw this Spielberg entry in theatres. How’d that happen?
DO THE RIGHT THINGOnce upon a time I began to see this film as “dated”. Now? Not so much…
