Weekly Roundup: July 6 – 12

bloody_mess_calendar_print I played several games of Netflix Roulette this week. All-in-all, I ended up watching four films:

  • Alyce Kills (2011)
  • Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)
  • Here Comes the Devil (2012)
  • The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)

Apart from one (really big) miss, most of the films weren’t too bad… therefore, I’ll say it was a good week:

  • Worth Seeking Out (i.e. Worth Paying For): unfortunately, nothing really broke through to this level, though a couple were close.
  • Worth Watching via Free Streaming: Here Comes the Devil (2012), and The Taking of Deborah Logan (2014)
  • Worth Watching on an International Flight or While Doing Work: Alyce Kills (2011)
  • Worth Avoiding and Doing Something Better with Your Time: Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)

Three of the movies I watched this week made it onto my cumulative top-ten list… which, is pretty exciting. It’s starting to come together nicely… though, I still wouldn’t watch the last one the list (Donner Pass)… give it a couple more weeks and it should be pretty strong:

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

Next week should be a full week… baring any unscheduled events I should have at least five full posts (possibly six, depending on how motivated I am on Tuesday). The only thing I have planned for definite is that I’ll be seeing The Gallows tomorrow night with a friend, so expect a full write up on Tuesday. I’m trying not to go into it with any preconceived notions… but, since I’m dreading it, I guess I’m failing at my goal. Also, I’m trying to figure out which classic horror movies to revisit. I had a lot of fun with the holy trinity of slasher films (I’m still thinking I’ll do Psycho) but it’s time to move on. At first, I was considering the Evil Dead series, but then thought that it would be better to save them for right before the premier of the new series… so, I’m at a lost… I could always just flip through my DVD binders, but I’m also open to suggestions. See you tomorrow! me

Weekly Roundup: June 15 – 28


Third times a charm?

So, let’s end this weird with a Weekly Roundup post. As I mentioned a few posts ago, I realized I forgot to do a weekly roundup last week. Therefore, this post will cover both weeks three and four. Over the past fourteen days I watched seven movies:

  • Bad Milo (2013)
  • The Canal (2014)
  • Donner Pass (2012)
  • Friday the 13th (1980)
  • Halloween (1978)
  • Haunt (2013)
  • The Nightmare (2015)

Of these seven movies I would only give one a hard pass (Haunt)… though, that doesn’t mean the rest were amazing… in fact, I think most fall into the second to last category:

  • Worth Seeking Out (i.e. Worth Paying For): Friday the 13th (1980), and The Nightmare (2015)
  • Worth Watching via Free Streaming: Halloween (1978)
  • Worth Watching on an International Flight or While Doing Work: Bad Mio (2013), The Canal (2014), and Donner Pass (2013)
  • Worth Avoiding and Doing Something Better with Your Time: Haunt (2013)

I’ll be back tomorrow with a new (full post). I have a bit of work to get caught up with next week… I’ve been putting this stuff off for way too long, so it may be a somewhat light week for movie watching… though, I will try to at least get a few Random Thoughts and Trailer posts up when I’m not able to watch a movie. The only solid plan for next week is that I’ll be watching The Exorcist with a group of people on Tuesday night… one member of this group claims to have never seen a horror movie… so, that should be interesting…

That’s all for now… until tomorrow…
