Published by Liam Merrick on December 18, 2014 400 And Counting: Week Nine (The Wild Rose)

It’s been a long week. It should surprise no one that I didn’t immediately go out and watch a heap of SBS On Demand movies after the Japanese Film Festival. One of the bigger factors is how uncinematic working movies on my computer is. It feels less engaging than TV, which is far less engaging than an actual cinema. It also doesn’t help that most of the movies I was excited to watch expired before I got around to seeing them. I did however, see a couple of very good films this week, so that’s something.

Onwards! Continue reading »

Published by Liam Merrick on December 10, 2014 400 And Counting: Week Eight (Turning Japanese)

My goal for the Japanese Film Festival, like this blog, is to see as many strange and interesting films as possible. To that end, I decided to go in blind. This means no descriptions, no trailers, no reviews and no IMDB-ing.

Basically, I’m jumping into the deep end. Continue reading »

Published by Liam Merrick on November 28, 2014 400 And Counting: Week Seven (Fight For Your Right)

This is the week that I completely ignored the SBS On Demand service and got my movie fix elsewhere. I guess it’s good this blog has nothing to do with watching the 400 movies added to it.

Right. Distraction.

I’ve been playing a lot of Pokémon recently. I’m enjoying it, but it exactly the same as every Pokémon ever. Also I watched a Disney movie this week. Continue reading »

Published by Liam Merrick on November 21, 2014 400 And Counting: Week Six (TV Is The Thing)

This was the week that I almost starting playing World of Warcraft again. It was a near miss. If the Blizzard call centre was open I would’ve reactivated my account and that would’ve been it. Instead I just spent a night watching WoW streams on Twitch.

This was the week where I caught up on TV. American Horror Story: Freakshow is out, and despite a rather weak first episode, the series has me hooked. The Newsroom’s final season is also under way and it gets better and better with every episode. Pair that with the weekly offerings of Whose Line is it Anyway and Billy on the Street and you can see where this is going.

I love watching movies but now that I have to watch movies every day, I’m finding it harder to motivate myself. This blog is being written all on a Wednesday, where previously I wrote each review after I see the films. Sure, writing a blog and watching movies isn’t really hard work, but I just can’t be fucked some nights.

I’m almost tempted to fire up my Xbox. Almost. Continue reading »
