Working guy who needs an outlet.

Maintained roughly a film a day for the last 4 years yet my bookmarked list grows larger and larger…

Last film I watched as of:

  • 19:00 24.10.15 was Billy Wilder’s Stalag 17! Wow, what a masterpiece..
  • 18:45 21.12.15 was Hotel Rwanda. Civil war is just the worst.
  • 23.00 28.02.16 I watched 5 films today: The Mist, The Magnificent 7, Saboteur, The Fog and The Burbs. Whatta day.
  • 21:00 08.03.16 was Godard’s Une Femme est Une Femme on #IWD. I love it, so funny, such great, lively performance from Karina.
  • 13:00 26.03.16 was The Magnificent Seven. I’m a huge fan of Seven Samurai and Kurosawa in general. This was about as good of a western adaptation as it could of been. Full of badassery.
  • 17:00 12.05.16 was Bob Fosse’s excellent All That Jazz. What a thrilling portrait of the life of an artist.
  • 23.00 13.06.16 was Roman Polanski’s Knife in The Water. Holyyyy.. this is a masterpiece, reminded me a lot of L’avventura.
  • 00:30 12.07.16 was James Ivory’s magnificent quintessential British masterpiece A Room With A View. Maybe it’s the way it’s aged but a part of me wasn’t so sure on George..

I’ve started a Letterboxd so this stays under control:

  1. Thanks for the link to this on Reddit. I’d rather post this here than on reddit, where things can go…unpredictably. I liked your review of Birdman, not so much of Babadook. If you do not mind, I would like to make some suggestions (not to criticize, but what I would have liked to see in the review). 1. Have a consistent rating standard (out of 5 stars, or out of 100) and stick to it. 2. Rate every film you reviewed. 3. Personally, I don’t like the style of starting a review by comparisons/analogies.

    You are doing a good job. Keep it up and get better.

    1. Cheers for taking the time to have a read and comment I appreciate it!

      In regards to your first two points, I usually just rate films out of ten but the one out of 100 I wrote for another site, when that deal fell through I literally just copied it back. I also acknowledge forgetting to rate, I will fix this.

      I kind of agree with the third point too, I do try to change things up but I know that especially with over-using comparisons early on you make reading the review feel a bit too exclusive.. I think.

      Seriously though, thanks for the comment πŸ™‚
