The Watch List – 26th July

It’s Monday again, so I wanted to write a quick post about what I plan on watching/reviewing this week. I tested negative again today, which means that I can leave the house again tomorrow. I had 6 days off work and had to stay inside the entire time, typical. At least I got the back lawn mowed. It’s a pretty steep hill, and took a while. When I move, there won’t be a garden.

Anyway. I have a few trips to the cinema lined up. Tomorrow is the unlimited screening of Last Letter from your Lover. I’ll be honest, this isn’t something that appeals to me, but Tabby likes the look of it and it’s free. I do like the cast and will give it a go, who knows? Wednesday is when I get to see Old. I’m really looking forward to this one. I’m a big fan of Shyamalan’s work and think this looks great.

On Friday I’m planning on doing a double bill with Jungle Cruise and Suicide Squad. I think Jungle Cruise looks good, I like The Rock and it looks like it will be a fun adventure. Suicide Squad looks awful. I wasn’t a fan of the first one, but this looks so bland and generic. I heard good things about the trailer, but when I actually saw it I was disappointed. I don’t watch trailers online, so it wasn’t because I was hyped up about it, I saw it before something at the cinema. It honestly looked boring. If the jokes in the trailer were rubbish, how bad must the film be? I’m seeing it essentially because me and Tabby are big fans of Margot Robbie and watch everything she’s in.

From my DVD rental list, I have Ring of Bright Water, Riddick and Following on the way. Bright Water, because my Mum recommended it. Riddick because that’s the next Franchise Catch Up I’m working on and Following because it’s Nolan’s first film and I’ve never seen it.

I’m hit or miss with Nolan to be honest, I loved Tenet and Memento, Insomnia and The Prestige are alright. I absolutely hated Dark Knight Rises, it’s in my top 5 most hated films. Inception is okay, but one of the most overrated films ever. Dunkirk is so cold and emotionless, you need to watch it with a blanket to stop from freezing (From a technical look, it’s a wonderfully made film).

Being back at work full time, I don’t have plans for anything else. I’m sure some will change as the week progresses.

Have you seen any of the above? Love it, hate it? Let me know in the comments. No spoilers for Old please.

Thanks for reading and until next time,
