I need to step it up and one of these weeks soon I need to watch at least seven movies, but this week ended with me only seeing four. It began with the endurance test that is the awful Blackhat as one of two theatrical screenings along with the adequate The Wedding Ringer.
At home things were a little more interesting with Criterion’s upcoming Blu-ray release of Guy Maddin‘s My Winnipeg, which I already reviewed St. Vincent and I’m happy to report they both loved it. I don’t know why St. Vincent wasn’t received any better by critics, but if you’re looking for one of 2014’s overlooked gems, this is one of them.
Otherwise, I watched a fair amount of college basketball (none of which was all that great), I caught “Saturday Night Live” last night, “Real Time with Bil Maher” the night before and that’s really about it outside of “The Daily Show” and “PTI”. One thing you can count on, however, is come noon time today, I’ll be glued to the television watching the Seahawks take on the Green Bay Packers. I sense a second trip to the Super Bowl folks!
