Frequencies
First viewing - Nov. 26th
Netflix seemed convinced this was my type of movie, so when I noticed it's leaving soon I figured I'd catch it while I still could. Frequencies is a very intelligent sci-fi/romance hybrid with a strong cast and intriguing story. I hate to say too much about it since I knew nothing about it beyond Netflix's brief description, so I'll keep my comments brief. Simply put, I dug everything about it & would gladly watch it again. I'm unsure whether it crossed my line of greatness, but it's safe to say it came very close if not.

Six-String Samurai
Re-watch - Nov. 25th
When I found out I could see this on the big screen, I knew I had to go. I think the last time I watched it was when I made the ex watch it with me, which would have been 2009 so I haven't had it in any of my journals yet (though it's appeared in other lists of mine). The first time I ever saw it was well after its theatrical run when a former friend of mine insisted we watch it one night, and I've loved it ever since but only ever been able to watch it at home. It's not a popular film by any means, so this chance to see it in a theatre was just too enticing to pass up (and to reinforce it's not being popular there were about 10 of us in the audience). The story is original, the characters are all interesting, it's wonderfully shot and acted, and the soundtrack is killer (which reminds me, I need to buy the soundtrack still). If you haven't seen it you should check it out, especially if you have any love for old-school early rock n' roll. Seeing it all in a theatre was a joy, and I'll definitely be going back to the theatre again in the future. In fact, the moment I walked into the theatre I felt a sense of being at home which was exciting. And if I'd had more money I would have spent the day there, because after Six-String Samurai they were screening Repo Man, Death Race 2000, and The Warriors, followed by an interactive screening of The Room which is the only film of those I have zero interest in ever seeing (though also the only one of the films I haven't seen before). So yeah, I could have easily stayed longer & I'm sure it would've been worth it but alas I couldn't justify the expense. Maybe another time...

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Hey man, thanks for commenting on my Horror Movie Marathon list. I plan on writing a description of my viewing experience, but I've been a little busy and haven't got around to it yet, but hopefully I will soon. I absolutely love the Elm Street series, so naturally I took advantage of a pop-up channel which played them all back to back over the Halloween weekend. I'll explain it all properly on the list. :)

Aye, Green Room was sensational. On the same level as Blue Ruin. I clearly need to check out the director's other movie, Murder Party :)

Thanks for the vote and the comment!

I've heard "In glorious times" and while I do agree with you that it's probably their best album technically, I'm more attached to "Grand Opening and Closing". But I often change which one is my favorite, sometimes it's even "Of Natural History", which was the first one I heard from them.

Haven't heard that Paper Chase album yet, so I'll check it out. :D
