Week in Review: 1/24/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Wild Card - Jason Statham was a lot of fun in this and I liked most of the cast.  Their combined charisma is what kept me invested despite the weaknesses in the plot and the loose story structure.

My Rating: 3 / 5

2) Baby Geniuses 2: Superbabies - I watched this for my side blog.  It's shitty, but not as shitty as the Internet would have you believe.  Still doesn't mean you should watch it.

My Rating: 1 / 5

3) Pay the Ghost - Disposable and forgettable.  Anything else I say would just be cruel.

My Rating: 2 / 5

4) Hackers - Rarely do I see a movie that would be greatly improved by removing the smarter pieces of it.  Hackers has a good skeleton of a plot and some of the stupidest computer magic ever committed to film, but in the end, the nonsense won me over. Too bad there was a conflict with potential for legitimate tension getting in the way.

My Rating: 2.5 / 5

Total: 4 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Untitled Post-Apocalyptic Novel - About four hours of writing. First draft length: 32,000 words.

Total: 4 Hours

The Winner: A Tie.

It's a good weekend to sit down and write... is what I would say if I actually spent any time this weekend writing.  At least I did well during the week.
