Sean Kelly

What I Watched – June 24-July 7

It has definitely been a very slow period of movie watching.  With the course I was taking now pretty much over, I now expect that I will have time to watch films more regularly.  Anyways, here is what I watched over the last two weeks or so.

Theatrical Screenings

Blu-Ray

  • The Warriors – Had its moments, but feels a bit dated.
  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (rewatch) – Still an enjoyable little film.

OnDemand

  • Pitch Perfect – I was divided between completely writing this film off and somewhat liking it.  I went with the latter.

Screened in Class

  • Captain Coulier - A cheesy and foul-mouthed sci-fi short.
  • Broken Tulip (rewatch) – Brandon Cronenberg's debut short introduces the concepts that were expanded into Antiviral.
  • Blink – An interesting morality tale about a world controlled by social media
  • Life Doesn’t Frighten Me – Cute coming of age story with an even cuter pug dog.
  • So Soon Forgotten – An $80,000 student film that could’ve used a little more script development
