Weekly Roundup: June 29 – July 5

And I thought I wouldn’t get a chance to watch many movies this week… I guess it’s true what they say about plans. Over the past week I somehow found a way to squeeze in five movies:

  • Alien Abduction (2014)
  • The Exorcist (1973)
  • The Horde (2009)
  • Neverlake (2012)
  • Starry Eyes (2014)

It was kind of a crap shoot this week in terms of quality. In the end though two of these five movies fall under the “Worth Seeking Out” category, so I’ll chalk this week up as a win:

  • Worth Seeking Out (i.e. Worth Paying For): The Exorcist (1973), and Starry Eyes (2014)
  • Worth Watching via Free Streaming: Neverlake (2012)
  • Worth Watching on an International Flight or While Doing Work: The Horde (2009) Worth Avoiding and Doing Something Better with Your Time: Alien Abduction (2014)

A friend of mine suggested that I include a top-ten list of the movies I’ve watched during this experiment. Well, I’m game! So, from here on out I will end each Weekly Roundup with a list of the 10 best films I’ve seen on Netflix (I’ve decided not to include the Classics Revisited movies as they will end up monopolizing the list). One thing to keep in mind though, to this point, I’ve only watched twelve movies via Netflix Roulette… therefore, the stuff at the end of the list is really, really bad… the list will (hopefully) fill up with stronger recommendations as the weeks progress. Here we go:

  1. Housebound
  2. Starry Eyes
  3. The House at the End of Time
  4. The Canal
  5. Neverlake
  6. Bad Milo!
  7. Donner Pass
  8. The Horde
  9. Devil’s Pass
  10. Haunt

I’ll be back tomorrow with a short post (I’m still on vacation). Expect fuller posts for the rest of the week.

That’s all for now… until tomorrow…
