I’m a bad blogger… give me a minute, I’m a very bad blogger.
In the same week when Univarn returned to say an official goodbye to the internet (at least as a film blogger) a year after his latest post I’m starting to think more and more about what I’m trying or wanting to do with the internet and this blog. I’ve stopped writing for about three other web outlets that I was working with last year. I’m still unemployed six months after deciding to return to Jamaica to try and be back home with my family. I read Univarn’s goodbye and wonder what it is that fuels my need to write about film and eloquently (or not so much as I know I suck and being good takey) discuss my feelings about films.
I’m thinking about it guys.
However, regardless of that stuffs. Here’s my last couple weeks of film watching:
THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (2013) – An okay film of adventure, but the first half hour is really hard to love.
ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES (2013) – I like this movie a lot… I’m okay with this return to character
NEW YORK, NEW YORK (1977) – Wow those 3 hours hurt my brain
THE AGE OF INNOCENCE (1993) – Wow I didn’t enjoy that one either
THE WOLF OF WALL STREET (2013) – Hmmmmm…. cocaine spinach guys!!!
LATE SPRING (1949) – But I wanna be happy now…
1:1 THIERRY HENRY (2011) – Uninteresting through and through
THE TALE OF ZATOICHI (1962) – old samurai action that ins’t Yojimbo, but still fun
47 RONIN (2013) – some of the action is pretty good; everything else is what you expect.
THE GREAT BEAUTY - “Therefore… let this novel begin. After all… it’s just a trick. Yes, it’s just a trick.”
THREE KINGS – “Are we shooting?”
FROZEN – “Because I love you, Anna, I insist you run.”
PURPLE RAIN – “You have to purify yourself in Lake Minnetonka.”
COOL HAND LUKE – “What we got here is… failure to communicate.”
THE AVIATOR – “You don’t care about money because you’ve always had it.”
HUGO – “My friends, I address you all tonight as you truly are; wizards, mermaids, travelers, adventurers, magicians… Come and dream with me.”
THE KING OF COMEDY – “Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.”
TAXI DRIVER – “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me?”
ATTACK THE BLOCK – “Oh… is it? Why can’t he help children in Britain? Not exotic enough is it? Don’t get a nice suntan. Tsst.”
NOTORIOUS – “Bet you’ve heard that line often enough.”
THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT – “Well maybe Elmo thinks there is no right cookie, you just pick one and take a bite!”
STRANGER THAN FICTION – “I don’t *need* a museum. I need the infirm.”
My count for the year of 2014 is updated to 80 First time watches (13 from 2014); 47 Rewatches; 127 Total Films
