#20 of 101: Movie Bucket List | Watch the Before Trilogy with a Woman all in one day

tumblr_mq0lfcXspc1s96111o1_500

The Before trilogy consists of three films directed by Richard Linklater and starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as lovers Jesse and Céline at three different parts of their lives. The trilogy consists of the films Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013).

The idea of the Before Trilogy came when Richard Linklater spent the night walking with a woman he met called Amy. They lost contact throughout the years. He tried to find her again, but unfortunately he found out in 2010 that Amy had died in a car accident several years ago.

Before Sunrise (above), the first film in the trilogy is set in a single night in ViennaAustria. Jesse, an American student traveling Europe, and Céline, a French student returning to university after visiting relatives, meet on a train traveling to Vienna from BudapestHungary. The two wander the streets of Vienna and become romantically interested in each other. At the end of the film, they part, but agree to meet again in the future.

“I want to watch this movie with a woman all in one day. Hell, inside a blanket fort with snacks and sexintercoursemissions in between.”

2nd Movie: Before Sunset takes place nine years after the first film, and is set in a single afternoon in ParisFrance. Jesse, now a best-selling author, has a chance encounter with Céline while on tour in Europe promoting his latest book, an account of their prior meeting in Vienna. They lament that they had not followed through with their prior plans to meet again, and wander Paris having conversations similar to the first film. At the end of the film, Jesse returns to Céline’s apartment and intentionally misses his plane to return to the U.S. to spend more time with her.

3rd Movie: Before Midnight takes place nine years later, and is set in a single afternoon in at a seaside village in Greece

Below is the three blended together to give the back story (spoilers)

“Oh my heart…”

Banff Film Festival | Peterborough

This year marks the 3rd straight year attending the Banff Film Festival and I’m excited to be going both days to see all the films presented.  This festival goes worldwide after opening in Banff.  Wild Rock in PTBO sponsors it each year.  It will be in Toronto in March and tickets are on sale now.  The one in PTBO sells out super quick.

The trailer is below:

 

Back to back nights at the Festival and 18 films watched.  Here are some of the movies that I watched that I could find online.

 –
The North Face Presents Lhotse (23 minutes) |In 2018, Hilaree Nelson and Jim Morrison completed the first ski descent of the 27,940-foot Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world. This is their story.
Charge (5 Min) | Four top freeskiers and a World Champion drone pilot are dropped at Chatter Creek Cat Skiing in BC for one week. Their instructions: charge as hard as you can every day

Camel finds water (so good)

Thabang (23 min) | Thabang Madiba somehow found his way into the world of trail running and in the last few years has become everyone’s favourite in the South African trail scene. He lives in Ga-Rankuwa township, without a mountain in sight… or a physio, chiro or dietician for that matter.  But through hard work, dedication and passion, he has won the South African Trail Running Championships multiple times and was the first black South African to represent the country in Trail Running. He has become a hero in his community and is hoping to inspire a new generation of youth through the sport of trail running.
Surfer Dan (7 Min) | Beyond the waves; the ocean, the sand, and the sun are a few elements that come to mind when you think of surfing. But for Dan, he finds all that he needs in the icy waves of Lake Superior, Michigan in the dead of winter. To most, it’s quite possibly the most unattractive surfing destination in the entire world – but for Dan it’s all about how you perceive it.

The Motivator | I’m in love this this guys Mom

Home (Trailer) | Between 2011 and 2015, UK adventurer Sarah Outen traversed the globe by bike, kayak and rowing boat, traveling over 20,000 miles by human power alone. Her voyage was followed by thousands, hooked on her infectious humor and love of life. But travelling solo, the trip took its toll, and a violent storm on the Pacific took Sarah to the physical and mental brink. Woven out of hundreds of hours of footage, Home intimately and unflinchingly captures Sarah’s journey, telling a story of heart and soul, of real struggle and joy, and one woman’s trek towards true emotional acceptance.
Siblings (3 min) | Over the years, we gained a lot of wisdom together, trying to best each other and take on the world. Through it all, bikes have fueled our adventures, sparked our imaginations, and continually reminded us of what’s most important: We’re all family.

Hors Piste (6 min of awesome)

In Progress | 35 of 101 | Knock My Movie List Down to 300 Titles & Review 530 Movies | Flicks w/ Chips + Dips

As of March 2020 my Watch List on IMDB has a total of 391 movies and the total movies rated on IMDB is 431.

This is the first task in my 101 Things To Do In A 1001 Days which I have over two years left to complete to get my list down to 300 titles.  I will do this one.  My goal is a movie every 2-3 days.  My list grows as I add titles and sometimes I take a couple away if I’ve gone completely cold on a title and would never click to watch it online.

Just wanted to have a spot where I could list some of the movies that I want to see. I like to ask people for some recommendations and I stick them in Evernote to keep track of. I will have to set it up better and bring some to the top and focus on those first.

Here is a list that will grow of some of the movies that I want to watch.

To see my FULL WATCHLIST on IDMb, you can visit it here.

Free Solo | The Climb That Takes You For A Ride

the kids and i went to the ted rogers hot docs cinema in THE6 to see Free Solo which is such a great documentary about Alex Honnold and his assent up El Captain in Yosemite National Park.  what a ride.  10/10 from me.  it has a rating on IMDb of 8.6 and a meta score from critics of 83.  this park is on my bucketlist.  it just looks incredible to visit and camp and hike.  i will see this movie again when it hits the theatre in PTBO and i try and drag out everyone i know and i will jump at the chance to see it on IMAX any day.

Follow Alex Honnold as he becomes the first person to ever free solo climb Yosemite’s 3,000ft high El Capitan Wall. With no ropes or safety gear, he completed arguably the greatest feat in rock climbing history

alex has a witty sense of humor and him meeting Sandi who is just adorable changes the dynamics when you think of it from her perspective as she falls in love with him and doesn’t want to stop his dream.  can’t believe that 3 guys first climbed this rockface in the 50’s with rope and it took them about 46 days to complete it and alex did it it in under 4 hours.  my mind is blown.

go see it.  i posted the trailer and also a interview below that.

Recent Flicks & Trying To Complete My Goal on my 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days

A little look back at the most recent flicks I’ve watched.  One of my 101 things to do in 1001 days is to have my watchlist drop below 300 and my rated movies to be over 400.  As of today my watchlist is at 299 movies and my rated movies is 385.  I will complete this soon.  Below is movies I’ve watch in the theaters or steamed mostly on Putlocker and a bit on Netflix.
