July 2018

This month I watched 16 films. For the first time in a while most of them were not from this millennium so yay me. I think this is the most I’ve used my Filmstruck subscription in a single month.

Anyways, you know the drill.

This month I watched 16 films. There were a few great films in there, but for the most part they eere just good. There were a couple of stinkers, of course.

Love My Way: The Best in Film of 2017

20180222_221510.png2017 was kind of a bad year for humanity, and it really wasn’t an especially good one on a personal level either (to put it mildly). So more than ever, the movies became an escape. I wouldn’t just watch anything that I came across, I looked for things that would either make me feel good, end at the very leadt on hopeful note, or somehow enrich me.

I found all this, even in the most unlikely places. Mudbound was not so something that I would have anticipated this particular year, but went ahead and watched it because it was a Dee Rees film. It was not an easy sit, but by the end, although it obviously didn’t change me, I felt like I had a new valuable experience in my life. I even found value in something like Home Again. I can see the problems that people who dislike it have with it, but my viewing experience during a particularly bad day was so much fun that I couldn’t help but fall for it. Continue reading

January 2018

The year began with a renewed sense of hope, but it only took a few hours to realize that the world is still on fire. At least when it comes to movies, things started of excellently. Thanks to Moviepass I was able to go to the theaters 11 times (to watch 9 films), and I used streaming services plenty of times. In the end I watched 26 films for the first time, and I onky had big reservations about three of them.

So, anyways…

Short Reviews: Heaven Can Wait, The Stunt Man, Cat People

One of my goals for 2018 is to write more even if I’m not content with how things turn out. I don’t know if I’ll actually keep up with it, but I guess I’ll give it a shot.

Heaven Can Wait (Warren Beatty, 1978)

For my first film of the year I wanted to watch that’s more than 20 years old but also something fun so as to not start out the year on a downer, so Warren Beatty’s Heaven Can Wait seemed to meet this criteria. For the most part it was a perfect choice. For most of its running time it’s a simple, fun comedy about a guy who gets to have a second chance at life in the body of another person after being taken too soon. The scenes where Beatty’s Joe Pendelton as Leo Farnsworth toys with his cheating wife and lover are easily the highlight of these early bits.
