It climbed so high in fact, that my Stack of Shame has been whittled down to almost nil! An OCD habit of mine is that when I buy a new dvd or blu-ray, it doesn’t get put on to the shelf until I’ve watched it once. Part of that is because I want to make sure everything is hunky-dory with the disc, but another part is because I hate the idea of owning something I’ve never even used once.
Since Christmas, there has been a sizeable “to-watch” pile (helped in no small part by all those TCM films I PVR’d). Now? We’re down to three, plus an additional one loaned from an old friend/faithful reader.
I don’t see myself making much of a dent in that pile this week…which is not to say I won’t be watching much. Tune in this time next week and I’ll be able to explain further.
Here’s The Week at Hand…
WANDERLUST – I probably would have enjoyed this more as a “renter”
GOON – #lindsaywasright
Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Never Seen
THE BICYCLE THIEF – Part of me thinks I missed seeing this at The Lightbox. If so, I’m bummed.
VICTOR/VICTORIA – If you’d told me I’d love this film as much as I do, I wouldn’t have believed you.
CORALINE – I feel ashamed this sat in front of my TV unwatched since New Year’s Eve
Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Watched Before
ATTACK THE BLOCK – The most joy I got in 2011 was watching people slowly discover this amazing movie.
ANNIE HALL – “My grammy never gave gifts. She was too busy getting raped by Cossacks”
THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE – Alright Fincher, now lets see you take the lesser movies and remake them better.
CONTAGION – That’s some freaky stuff. Why did I buy this again?
50/50 – Possibly the year’s most underrated film.
MANHATTAN – My favorite Woody Allen movie…in case you were keeping score
