Week in Review: 8/24/2014

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Bad Words - I liked this movie.

My Rating: 5 / 5

2) Backgammon (2001) - This was an interesting experiment that failed.  Kind of like a first draft that went out the door without anybody reviewing it.  Something Awful has a somewhat unfair review that seems to assume that the movie was sincere, though most of it is pretty obviously meant to be campy.  This creates the unusual confusion of not being able to tell if the shitty parts were intentional.  The direction was pretty decent, though, all things considered.

My Rating: 2 / 5

Total: 2 Movies


Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Born Loser - About four hours of writing.  Current length:  63,000 words.

2) I Need a Job - About an hour of revisions.

Total: 5 Hours


The Winner:  Minutes!

I'm tired.  Probably has something to do with staying up until 2:00 AM playing a board game (this time is was Dead of Winter), which is something I haven't done in a year.  I'm too old to be up past midnight....
