It’s Easter weekend and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have a relaxing “screw the world” weekend to myself where I get a chance to catch up on all the TV I’ve been putting off watching for months now. I actually had full intentions of finally watching The Last Temptation of Christ, but I’ve yet to strike up the nerve to press play on a 3 hour long film as opposed to watching episode after episode of a 30 minute anime or a 3 episode British TV series which rocked my world – I know this doesn’t make sense but work with me here.
Anyways here’s my week’s tally enjoy and let me know what you’ve been digging into this past week:
FIRST TIME VIEWINGS
LOUIS C.K.: LIVE AT THE BEACON THEATRE (2011) – It’s more awesome Louis.
ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA (2012) – Where awesome cinematography meets boring and meandering storytelling.
SHAME (2011) – Brilliant film from top to bottom.
BLACK MIRROR (2011) (TV) – Amazing science-fiction TV series where it takes the time to talk about certain aspects of technology and how it affects society.
FATE/ZERO (Season 1) – Too much chatter and not enough action for an anime series that isn’t animated that interestingly.
BLIND DATE (1987) – “You mean we have to have sex? All right, but no kissing!”
12 ANGRY MEN (1957) – “It’s always difficult to keep personal prejudice out of a thing like this. And wherever you run into it, prejudice always obscures the truth.”
52 First time watches (12 from 2012); 29 Rewatches; 81 Total Films
