Week in Review: 9/18/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Star Wars: The Force Awakens - So.... I'm still not into Star Wars.  I can easily acknowledge that this is a well-made movie with decent acting, good pacing, and excellent special effects.  I simply have no desire to ever watch it again and I still fail to see why people take the franchise so damn seriously.

My Rating: 3.5 / 5 (MYDG)

2) Shaun the Sheep - I dug this.  It's not exactly a laugh riot, but it's very cute and the animation is amazing to behold.  There were so many times I found myself scratching my head and wondering how they managed to film a scene - like when a claymation bus drives through a puddle of real water and sprays through the air in real-time.

My Rating: 4 / 5

Total: 2 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Born Loser - About an hour of pre-publication work.

Total: 1 Hour

The Winner: Movies...

Considering that I'm about to release another book, I feel strangely calm.  I wonder if that means I'm not working hard enough?
