In Progress | 35 of 101 | Knock My Movie WatchList Down to 300 Titles & Increase My Reviewed Movies To 700 / (Summary: My Watched & Rated Movies in 2022)

I’ve started rating my movies watched on IMDb since 2012 and I keep my watch list on the app as well.

As of October 2022… I have 492 movies on my Watch List. This morning I updated my watch list and added movies from my “HDToday” faves and now it’s ballooned up to 550 movies to watch!

The movies that I have watched & rated are 520 titles so far… So, therefore, I need to watch close to 300 movies in the next 500 days to meet my goal.

I’ve been using a website that has tons of movies to watch for free (It’s called “HDToday” and I’ve shared movies on FB only to have FB give me “strikes” for sharing an unethical website.

I wanted to highlight what I’ve watched… so I thought it was easier to take a screenshot on my iPad of the movies I’ve watched. It shows you how I rated each movie and the IMDb score of it. You will find a list of movies I’ve watched recently below.

Notes from the above movies if any: I’m a huge basketball fan so I loved watching NYC Point Guards since it brought back the late 80s and early 90s of watching NBA hoops. I also enjoyed Untold: Operation Flagrant Foul since I didn’t know the backstory of an NBA ref cheating in the game. Parasite was excellent for a foreign film and I enjoyed it on the wall in the bedroom with my little projector—a must-see. I wanted “Killing Of Two Lovers” to be better but I’m glad I watched it with “Lou” and “Where The Crawdads Sing“.

Wild Rock Outfitters Presents The Banff Film Festival 2023

Excited to finally get back into the theatre seats for the Banff Film Fest coming back to Peterborough. Last year covid wiped it out and I watched the section of films online. The year before that… Michelle and I purchased the films online and cooked a meal to enjoy them.

When my buddy Drew told me about this and we went together I was hooked. Looking forward to getting tickets this year. I would love for my kids to come up and enjoy the festival and we have to go out for some winter hikes in the day and go downtown for a bite to eat and enjoy the section of films.

My other posts on the Banff Film Fest can be found here. Message me if you are interested in going and let’s make it a group.

Walter Mitty | The Quintessence Of Life

I watched a movie from 2013 that stars Ben Stiller as Walter who works for Life Magazine where he is thrown into Adventure. The movie didn’t make much of a splash. The movie is a beautiful piece of cinema. It was shot on film which was excellent. The lenses used work well with natural light. The narrative is Walter who has daydreams of adventure. He is thrown into the wrap-up of Life Magazine and he is in charge of the last image that will be used on the cover which is missing.

Understanding Walter is easy and his progression in the movie and how he changes as the movie progresses and he gets out of his shell and loses the person he was as he finds purpose.

He has issues with being “present”. Just loved this movie. Stiller directed the movie. Cheryl is sweet and she is on my crush list.

Gave it a 9/10

In Progress | 35 of 101 | Knock My Movie List Down to 300 Titles & Review 700 Movies | Movies watched 2018 to 2021

Here is my list of movies I’ve watched in 2022 (If you want to jump ahead to the current post of what I’m watching)

Below is my movies watched for 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2018…

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 recommendations and I stick them in Evernote to keep track of them. I will have to set it up better and bring some to the top and focus on those first.

Where I stream from…

I wish I could link this site on FB but I get a “bad strike” from FB since the site is unethical. I’ve been using it for about a year. Found out about it on TikTok. Works perfectly on my laptop using Chrome. I have a popup blocker so never have any issues.

Compared to the old days of these types of sites… 10% of the movies worked. These… all of them do. I’ve watched around 60 titles so far. I even save movies on my watchlist which I love.

I’ve watched one or two things on my iPad, but I don’t have a new tab blocker so it will open a new tab which I close right away. I heard there is an Android App… but don’t use Android.

Message me if you have any questions about HD Today and how to use it.

Remember to select the season and the show you want when you want to watch a series.

I’m always throwing in movies to my faves. Some… I’ll never have time to watch… but when I’m looking for something to watch… I can go through my list of pages of stuff I’ve saved…

#20 of 101: Competed: 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…”

Watching All Three:

I purchased a projector to hook up to the laptop. The projector is great… It was a little $70 one from Amazon and it works great. We watched the three movies from the comfort of being in bed which was sweet. I really enjoyed the 2nd and 3rd movies of this series. I streamed them from a great little website that has loads of free movies called “HDToday(dot)TV
