Reading and Writing

Hello everyone and I hope you’re all having a great Wednesday so far. It’s that time again for my weekly update. It’s been a very quick week, but there were some great films released last week, both on streaming with The Power of the Dog and in cinemas with C’mon C’mon. I also really loved Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. Had a great weekend watching them all.

This week is a bit more bland cinemawise, at least close to me. There’s only 2 new releases. West Side Story, which I’m very excited to see, and Clifford the Big Red Dog which I have no interest in, so won’t be watching it. I’ve got tickets to West Side Story booked for Friday after work. I am very tempted to also go and see the original Matrix again, because they’re showing it in 4DX and I think that could be really fun. I’ve enjoyed all the 4DX films I’ve seen, except from Black Widow which felt like I was just being thrown around for 2 hours, and felt a little sick afterwards. Maybe The Matrix will be better, not sure yet.

There are a couple of new Netflix films that I’m planning on watching, The Unforgivable with Sandra Bullock. I don’t know much about it, but it should be good. There’s also Asakusa Kid out tomorrow, which I’ll be watching. I also bought the new re-release of Mulholland Dr., which I’m excited to watch. I’m probably going to save that for Saturday because I know it’s a mind-melding film and want to watch it completely awake. I’ve seen it before, but that was a long time ago. I’m really hoping they continue to re-release all of Lynch’s films in these nice editions with booklets and special features that don’t really explain anything but are interesting to watch. They’re about half way through now.

With books, I’ve started Something More Than Night by Kim Newman, which I’m enjoying about 30 pages in so far. I tend to start a lot of books and then when one grabs me, I’ll finish that one and then go back to the others I’ve started. Probably not the best way to do it, but I’ve been like that since being a kid. Most things get read, and those that stay on my bedside table for years, probably weren’t for me.

Tomorrow I’ll be writing a post about my favourite episodes of TV, which my friend Liam suggested. I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I’ve got my list sorted. There will be some spoilers, so be warned.

Thanks for reading, and until next time,

  1. Yeah, Clifford the Big Red Dog isn’t my thing, either. I suppose if I had a little one running around the house I’d be seeing a lot of kids’ movies!
