What I Watched, What You Watched #178


The Conversation posterI am now on the fourth season of “The West Wing” and I also watched Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation in preparation for Wednesday’s (January 30) Movie Club discussion… or at least what I hope will be a minor discussion.

In the theater I caught screenings of Side Effects (review coming early next week), Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (review here) and Stoker (review coming late February).

Outside of movies, this past week has been filled largely with busy work as I finally got my new iMac and have been moving everything from my old PC over to the new Mac and setting things up to improve my workflow. After owning a MacBook Pro for almost four years and the fact it has long outperformed my six-year-old PC, which I spent quite a bit of money on, I have finally gone over to Apple for both the desktop and the laptop. The expense is substantial, but from experience and testimonials from many people, it’s worth it.

Here’s a look at my new office set up with my PC on the left and my new Mac on the right (and a sneak peek at the February 2013 movie wallpaper). After saving up money for two years to buy it, in only a few days I am already working faster and more efficiently and hopefully it will make for an even better experience for you on the website.


One such improved experience will hopefully come tonight with our live blog of the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards as I have set up a new style of live blogging that won’t require you to constantly refresh the page, but rather the comments will load at the bottom of the blog and continue to do so as Laremy and I comment on the night’s awards.

I hope you’ll join us tonight for the live blog, but for now let’s hear about what you watched this week.
