Week in Review: 6/15/14

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) The East - I had issues with the characterization of nearly everybody in this movie.  Also, a lot of the plot twists and developments felt a little bit contrived.  Even so, this was overall an enjoyable movie with some solid performances.  Don't let the previews fool you - it's not really a tense thriller as much as it is a character study mixed with a quasi-political censure of reckless capitalism.  Maybe don't watch it if you're hoping for a bunch of mind games.

My Rating:  3.5 / 5

Total: 1 Movie

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Born Loser - About three hours of writing.  Current draft length: 41,000 words.

Total: 3 Hours

The Winner:  Minutes!

Currently thinking of a Labor Day release for I Need a Job, whenever I decide to get back to work on that one.  In the meantime I need to crank out a draft of Born Loser or I'll feel like I'm stuck.
