Once again, I’m running behind, but not by a whole month this time. I think maybe by the Oscars I’ll have this new routine down. As you can see the first week of February was a productive one. 11 movies in total over the course of a week. That’ll help me with the Doug Loves Movies Challenge of watching 366 movies in 366 Days. It was mostly good fare, with a few greats and one sour apple thanks to the podcast How Did This Get Made?
#MusashiMiyamoto. Sometimes I wonder why I watch anything other than samurai movies. #DLMChallenge No. 32 Samurai I: Musashi Miyamoto.
Battle of the Bulge (1965) treats the German leadership kind of like Bond villains. #DLMChallenge No. 33
Wondering if I Am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang was meant as an exposé or a deterrent. #DLMChallenge No. 34
#Backcountry is like a land version of Open Water with a big-ass grizzly bear in place of a bunch of sharks. #DLMChallenge No. 35
#CoolHandLuke would be unimaginable today with it's meshing of progressive ideals with Christian imagery. #DLMChallenge No. 36
There's brilliance in #HailCaesar that's so subtle, I fear audiences won't get it. That may be part of the point. #DLMChallenge No. 37.
God's light doesn't shine on the Christian-themed early 80s rock opera #TheApple. #HDTGM #DLMChallenge No. 38
Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Canon Films is a must for film buffs, especially fans of 80s schlock. #DLMChallenge No. 39
#Neighbors is crude, filled with sex and drug use, and most of all it's very loud, but it's funny too. #DLMChallenge No. 40
#TheDirtyDozen Classic war flick with a classic war flick cast. Cassavetes shines. #DLMChallenge No. 41
