THE 2017 TALLY: WEEK 7 (FEB 11 – 17)

Another week and another list of films that made me cringe/love/hate/think too much about movies and what I do with my free time. Add to that the time I spend fawning over Overwatch and that I started playing Bloodborne, but can’t seem to pass the first area without dying a billion times I think I’m forever set to grind through this wheel of media.

I actually found myself at the theatre twice this week and that seems like nothing short of a miracle. I look forward to weeks as good as this in the future for myself, though I know that’s high hopes for the most part.

FIRST TIME VIEWINGS

SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS (1957) – Burt Lancaster was awesome as the smarmy brother/writer.
THE CONSEQUENCES OF LOVE (2004) – Paolo does Paolo.
SPLIT (2017) – Shamaylan returns strong this time out.
JOHN WICK: CHAPTER TWO (2017) – Are you working?
I, DANIEL BLAKE (2016) – I may take a stop on all Ken Loach films now… may just not be my cup of tea.

REWATCHES

CREED (2015)  – Still the best Rocky movie.
MANCHESTER BY THE SEA (2016) – Still weirdly sad and funny at the same time.
STREET FIGHTER II: THE ANIMATED MOVE (1994) – I still love this animation.
JOHN WICK (2014) – The club scene is the best.
UNBREAKABLE (2000) – Mediocre.

This is my blog. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my blog is useless. Without my blog, I am useless. I must fire my blog true. I will. Before God I swear this creed: my blog and myself are defenders of my mind, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but peace. Amen.
