I can’t even control the smile on my face as I write this week’s What I Watched, What You Watched. I’m just filed with such joy. I have finally seen La La Land, and it is just delightful. Actually, I’ve seen it twice-I just got back from seeing it with my family (my mother loved it, my father and brother were fine with it, and I’m only on speaking terms with one of them). It may, in fact, be better a second time. It’s one of the best of the year. Go see it. It’s not like you all haven’t seen Rogue One already. For the record, I also saw Rogue One; you can read my thoughts here.
I also watched a few movies at home this week. I struggled through Warcraft, which I saw only three days ago but remember nothing. Being fair, I didn’t remember anything during the movie either-there is nothing resembling a memorable plot or memorable character anywhere in the film. And I managed to finally see Nocturnal Animals, which I hope to review later this week as part of a Sacred Wall Christmas Review Roundup. Long story short, I thought it was so-so.
I didn’t catch that much TV this week, only The Middle, which is having one of its best seasons yet, and Modern Family, which featured one of the best teen actors in the business (whoever played the gay bully deserves an Emmy). Oh, and on the Internet, I will say the Achievement Hunter channel on Youtube has been putting out “Seven Days of 7 Days to Die,” which functions as something of the first Let’s Play Movie, as it is an entertaining, multi-part Zombie Comedy Saga. I have yet to watch Days 6 and 7, but I look forward to seeing them tonight.
What about you? Have you seen La La Land yet? What about Rogue One? Let me know what you’ve seen in the comments below!
I have not watched much this week, I’ve been stuck at work so I literally only had the chance to watch one movie. Luckily I made the right choice and watched Lala Land. Speaking of watching let’s play movies, I feel like you are neglecting to mention one of the highest rated comedies on IMDb, “Uno the movie”. Achievement hunter put out a wonderful 2 hour, 43 minute comedic romp where they consistently ask the question, “When are we gonna go home?” I watched all of it, and I was surprised how consistent it was. There were only a few moments where I was bored for a little bit.
I caught Uno the Movie a couple weeks ago when it first premiered. Entertaining, but didn’t feel it necessarily required mention at the time
