What I Watched – February 8-21

Here is what I watched over the last two weeks:

  • Point Break – First Viewing (Cinema) – An enjoyable bromantic action film
  • Lunarcy! – First Viewing (Cinema) – An enjoyable doc about Lunar aspirations
  • Looper – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Still quite enjoy the film
  • Side Effects – First Viewing (Cinema) – An effective thriller
  • Cosmopolis – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Worth it for that final half hour alone
  • The Raid: Redemption – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Tried watching the English-dubbed version.  It was terrible
  • A Glimpse into the Mind of Charles Swan III – First Viewing (Cinema) – Somewhat underwhelming
  • Anticipating TOWER: a Shorts programme of Kazik Radwanski and MDFF – I can now see how Tower came to be
  • A Good Day to Die Hard – First Viewing (Cinema) – Didn’t feel like a Die Hard film, but it was an OK action film

  • Some Kind of Wonderful – First Viewing (Cinema) – The gender reversal of Pretty in Pink
  • Pretty in Pink – Rewatch (Cinema) – A classic, even if it had a bit too much of a Hollywood ending
  • Inglourious Basterds – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Finished off my Tarantino boxset and kicked off my mini-marathon of past Best Picture nominees/winners
  • Ghost Graduation – First Viewing (Cinema) – It’s a shame that this will unlikely get a decent theatrical release
  • Dead Before Dawn 3D – First Viewing (Cinema) – Alright for a teen-centric zombie film.
  • Shadows of Liberty – First Viewing (Cinema) – It was interesting, but the fact that I never got around to writing about it probably says something.
  • Midnight in Paris – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – A lovely little film.
  • Little Terrors Volume 16: Frostbitten – Enjoyed this showcase of horror shorts and I will definitely check it out again.
  • The King’s Speech – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Still enjoy the film two year’s later.
  • The Social Network – Rewatch (Blu-Ray) – Makes me wonder why I even joined Facebook in the first place.
