What I Watched, What You Watched #181


Before Sunrise / Before Sunset posters by Sam SmythWell, for starters I watched Before Sunrise and have started Before Sunset for a feature I am working on and will publish closer to the May 24 release date of Before Midnight, but trust me, fans of those two films are going to like what I have in store.

I also watched Andre De Toth‘s Day of the Outlaw starring Burl Ives and Robert Ryan as I had read it was part of what inspired Sergio Corbucci’s The Great Silence, which is the Movie Club selection for February 27. And speaking of which, I have decided what the next title in the Club will be, but I won’t be revealing that until the 27th.

Other than that, I have started watching episodes of “Breaking Bad” on Netflix Instant and so far I’m five episodes into the first season. I know a lot of people like the show, but at the moment it feels like something I’m watching because I’ve been told I should, rather than something that has truly captured my attention. Now I’m sure those of you that love it will say, “It gets better, you have to keep watching,” and I will. I’m just saying how it feels at the moment.

And finally, on Friday night the lady of the house wanted to watch Lawless so she ordered that up On Demand and I watched about half of it with her. Solid movie, but I’m not sure it’s quite worth the B+ I gave it at the Cannes Film Festival last May.

Getting back to that Before franchise feature I’m working on, I’m also working on something special for the upcoming release of Fast & Furious 6 as well as an extra special something for the month of March, that will last for about three weeks and involve a whole lot of voting… It’s gonna be fun.

Now it’s your turn. What did you watch this past week?
