Week in Review: 10/2/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made - Long story short, I liked this and thought it was well made, but since about half the documentary is about stuff that happened only last year, I think it was made too soon to have a proper context.  Worth checking out, but especially worth revisiting in another ten years.

My Rating: 4 / 5

2) The Brothers Grimsby - I'm kind of ashamed to admit I found this funny - gross-out humor isn't really my bag.  Something about this one worked for me.  Maybe it's just that they really went for it any time they had a ludicrous idea instead of implying something and being coy.  All I know for sure is that I'm going to have a hard time recommending this to people even though I admittedly laughed quite a few times.

My Rating: 3.5 / 5

Total: 2 Movies

Minutes I Spent Writing in the Last Week

1) Born Loser - About three hours of pre-publication work.

2) Post Apocalyptic Comedy Book - About three hours of writing. Current draft length: About 53,000 words.

Total: 6 Hours

The Winner: Minutes!

Getting more productive lately.  Maybe it's the weather.
