Films I Watched In: November


Obviously a big objective for me this year is to watch one hundred films or more. Something I definitely haven’t achieved since beginning these posts (2016). And though I only managed five this month of November, without giving too much away, I think I’m gonna do it! Stay tuned for a bumper December post where I look at Christmas films and exciting end of the year tallies. Well, exciting is a term I use loosely. But anyway, for now on with –

Films I Watched In: November

I watched two sequels. A first time watch and another very, very, stupidly recent re-watch – anyone who’s read either of my last two posts should be able to suss out the answer to this one. PUNCH! ADRIAN! EYE OF THE TIGER! Anyway.

Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) which was as sturdy a sequel as sequels get dream to get. Very enjoyable. And also another bit of Rocky IV (1985) (surprise!) which I LOVE SOOOOO MUCH.

The other three movies were all re-watches too: Frailty (2001), Hostage (2005) and Law Abiding Citizen (2009). Despite everything I still think Law Abiding Citizen is the best. Lost count of how many times I’ve watched it and despite it’s over-the-top silliness (especially towards the end) I really like it!

And I really like that gif. Haa, Colm Meaney in the background looking all pissed off. Hostage I’d only seen once (quite a while ago) and though in places it’s a little tacky and/or dumb, I did quite enjoy it. Frailty on the other hand, surprisingly I didn’t like as much as I’d remembered (and I’ve seen it more than once in the past). A fairly good, certainly original thriller that just goes on a little at times with a bit of silliness a bit too silly to really believe in. Though always nice to see Bill Paxton of course.

  1. Not a bad list. All older too, not that they are all that old.

    100 films? I think you can do it. Watch one a day in December!

    I guess you don’t need me bragging that I am no course to match and possibly surpass my total from last year of 262 films watched with two weeks left in 2018! 😉 😛

    Great article! I don’t watch as many movies these days as I use to being more of a TV Nerd now, LoL. Although I did manage to catch a few flicks this year. I just started watching Manchester By The Sea. Watched about an hour yesterday, hoping to finish it today. I try to watch a movie entirely on the same day, but everyone else wanted to watch Saturday Night Live yesterday, so there went that, LoL.

      Thanks so much!! There’s so much good stuff on TV nowadays isn’t there! Some of these series are like watching movies anyway! Hope you get to finish Manchester By The Sea soon! I haven’t seen that one, I will look it up 🙂 thanks for your lovely comment!

        Totally agree, so much good TV out these days. I did finish the movie. It was so good. Very sad, but definitely still one of the best films I’ve ever seen. Definite recommend!
