Week in Review: 1/31/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) It Follows - Right now I'm feeling pretty burned by this movie, so my score's probably too low. I just hate it when a movie that uses long, slow, tedious shots of nothing gets praised for having "atmosphere" instead of being summarily dismissed as "boring."

My Rating: 2.5 / 5

2) Lady Ninja Kaede 2 - I watched this for my side blog.  Half of this movie is a supremely obscene and perverted sex comedy that made me laugh my ass off.  The other half is tedium.  So I'll split the score down the middle.

My Rating: 2.5 / 5

3) Unfriended - The gimmick was kinda fun, but this movie has some of the most horrible protagonists I've ever seen.  I couldn't wait for them to die... or at least lose their Internet connection so I didn't have to look at them again.

My Rating: 2.5 / 5

Total: 3 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Untitled Post-Apocalyptic Novel - About two hours of writing. First draft length: 33,500 words.

Total: 2 Hours

The Winner: Movies....

You'd think being snowed in for a week would have been good for my book, but I've done surprisingly little with the down time.  At least the house is cleaner.
