Weekly Roundup: July 13 – 19


This week I played a few games of Netflix Roulette (I lost more than I won) and watched one new movie… which nearly sapped the joy of movie watching from me:

  • Animal (2014)
  • The Gallows (2015)
  • Pontypool (2008)
  • The Shrine (2010)

Three out of the four movies I watched were abysmal… but Pontypool made up for it… in spades:

  • Worth Seeking Out (i.e. Worth Paying For): Pontypool
  • Worth Watching via Free Streaming: Nothing in this category this week
  • Worth Watching on an International Flight or While Doing Work: Animal (2014)
  • Worth Avoiding and Doing Something Better with Your Time: The Gallows (2015) and The Shrine (2010)

One of the movies I watched this week made it onto my cumulative top-ten list… the exciting thing though, is that it came in pretty high. Also, I realized I haven’t been including movies from my “In ‘Theaters’ Now” category… and, while including this category means only a single addition to the list, it is a pretty important addition. This list is finally starting to take form. I would actively re-watch nearly all of these movies… it’s going to start getting hard to bump stuff off the list. which, is pretty exciting:

  1. Housebound
  2. Pontypool
  3. Starry Eyes
  4. The House at the End of Time
  5. Here Comes the Devil
  6. The Nightmare
  7. The Taking of Deborah Logan
  8. The Canal
  9. Neverlake
  10. Alyce Kills

I have nothing specific planned for next week. I’ll probably play a few rounds of Netflix Roulette. I may also watch a reader recommended movie, possible an episode of a horror TV show, and/or start my new group of classics revisited (I finally came up with something). Whatever I decided I promise you plenty of posts.

See you tomorrow!
