This past week has been a more productive one I should say. I got a lot more writing and general website related things out there for you guys. Also I started to kind of understand how I wanted to shift what I’m covering through the blog. I debuted my Netflix Picks of the Week column — which will be available every Monday — and I have high hopes for doing a lot in the world of online streaming coverage of films this coming year.
This isn’t to say that I’m going to be straying away from theatrical releases for good. I’m not. For now, while on the job hunt still, I’ll be taking a break from the theatre. But I imagine in the near future theatrical releases will become a part of the blog again and I look forward to it. However, I feel this — at least for the first few months of the year — won’t really affect me that much as films in this time of the year are becoming more and more repulsive when it comes to the wide releases and more and more tempting as it relates to the limited ones. It helps also that a lot of the most interesting films being released in a limited form tend to also get somewhat of a VOD release quickly thereafter, sometimes on the same day, as it’s limited theatrical release. So let’s hope for interesting things this year.
Otherwise, we can get on to talking about the films I occupied myself with this week gone by:
HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (2013) – I love bad movies that are so bad their great; this isn’t that
ENOUGH SAID (2013) – I’m contemplating this one guys;
YOU’RE NEXT (2013) – I WANT MORE HORROR SURVIVAL LIKE THIS!!!
OPEN GRAVE (2014) – Honestly, this is interesting, but nothing amazing at all
SHORT TERM 12 (2013) – I’m emotional again guys, damn you movies
TOUCHY FEELY (2013) – this is what people mean when they talk about bad indie right?
BULL DURHAM – “Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they’re fascist. Throw some ground balls – it’s more democratic.”
BLAZING SADDLES – “I didn’t get a “harrumph” out of that guy!”
LES MISERABLES – “This is the land I fought for liberty, now when we fight, we fight for bread”
STEP BROTHERS – “We’re here to fuck shit up!”
My count for the year of 2014 is updated to 8 First time watches (1 from 2014); 5 Rewatches; 13 Total Films
