So I totally missed last week’s log. And while I’m backdating this post I missed this one too. So here are two weeks’ worth of movie viewing in one.
This was also a week where I spent it applying to schools again. I haven’t been able to say that out loud for over a decade and it’s strange. I also begin my year long campaign in getting on a plane to go elsewhere in the world. I don’t know if that campaign will fail or win, but here I am campaigning.
Anyways, let’s get to the movies.
FIRST TIME VIEWINGS
OFFSIDE (2006) – Panahi makes me feel for girls wanting to watch football and loving watching people be excited for football.
APRIL AND THE EXTRAORDINARY WORLD (2016) – It’s a poor Miyazaki rip off that isn’t any good.
THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (2016) – I was in stitches
HIDDEN FIGURES (2016) – We all wish our work was this important.
BILL BURR: WALK YOUR WAY OUT (2017) – Meh
POLYTECHNIQUE (2009) – Meh
DANCER IN THE DARK (2000) – Musical, but sad, weird.
HARLAN COUNTY U.S.A. (1976) – I like docs that show me new things. This did. It however had me so far in the mundanity of their struggle it was hard. I will revisit this one sometime in the future.
HACKSAW RIDGE (2016) – I liked 20 minutes of it. The rest was ok.
BILLY LYNN’S LONG HALFTIME WALK (2016) – This movie was so sappy and weird, but somehow I liked it more than Hacksaw, because it felt human.
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (2015) – I love this new team.
ALL THAT JAZZ (1979) – I love this movie’s vibe.
LA LA LAND (2016) – I love this movie’s just general sass.
