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…


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…
