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 | Flicks w/ Chips + Dips

As of March 2022 my Watch List on IMDB has a total of 471 movies and the total movies rated on IMDB is 492.

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.

Wednesday Movie Bucket List Review | Broken Flowers

tumblr_n8kgl18uU41qcung4o1_500

Recently I had the chance to watch the movie Broken Flowers starting Bill Murray who plays a intensely withdrawn Don Johnston who is dumped by his latest woman.  He then receives an anonymous letter from a former lover informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him. A freelance sleuth neighbor moves Don to embark on a cross-country search for his old flames in search of answers.

I seen the trailer for the movie from another movie I picked up at the local library this past summer.  It looked interesting and I added it to my Evernote to add to my Movie Bucket List that you can find here.

IMDb rated it a 7.2 out of 10 from it’s members.  I gave it 8 Lolita’s (Sharon Stone’s Daughter) out of 10.  I would recommend picking it up from the library and bringing it home to watch.  It’s a good little film.

Teckie Thursday | IDMb Website + My Bucket List | Who Wants To See A Movie

A neat website that lets you create a watchlist of movies you want to see as well as ones that you might have missed.  So many little gems out there.  I recently sat down and looked at all the movies going backwards and as I created the list… it brought me other movies to consider.

Based on the member ratings as well as some trailers… I now have a list of 267 Movies to watch.

They can be sorted by type or by rating.  Then as I watch them… they come off my list. I am always asking people to recommend me movies that they have seen and loved and thought nobody has ever really seen it.  I add them to my Evernote to keep track of and I also add quick voice memo’s into Evernote when I am watching the trailers so I can add to my list.

You can view my list here.

Watching movies is way better than TV.  I have started watching them alone and I enjoy watching them with people.
