Binge Watch Brainstorm

December 7, 2016

If you’ve visited my “Films I viewed in…” pages, you’ve noticed how sparse they are until you get to 2016 (2011 and several years before are on my hard drive, in storage), which is horrible for a cinema studies major, but a matter of practicality. My friend Howard lent me a laptop with a DVD player that allows me to watch at my leisure. Most of the time even when the movies shown at the shelter were things I wanted to see, they were already in progress, so I left when I finished eating. The other day at work I dashed off a list of films I wanted to remember to request at the library. I was stymied a bit by a cord failure last Monday, so some of the films on this list have already arrived from me along with some that I had out or have in the hold queue (a lot of times the copies I get from the library are too damaged to be watched in their entirety, if at all).

Director names in brackets if I want to check up on what they may have by that director that I still have not seen.

  1. Update as of March 23, 2017:

    Due to shelter transfer, it will be much more difficult to watch the films I still haven’t gotten to, not because laptops aren’t allowed, but because of when we are to charge them mostly overlaps with work.
