#WatchlistScreenCaps, 5/1 - 5/7


Here are the last ten films I watched, with a screen-captured image and quick sentence on the subject. Follow this feature on Twitter here, read about the kickoff here, and view the previous #WatchlistScreenCaps roundup here. Links below are to my review of the film in question.

As you may have noticed, I'm now including YouTube videos which opens up a can of worms. To qualify, the clip has to be self-contained (no "SNL" sketches unless they are created as stand-alone shorts like some of the Andy Samberg ones, and I'm leaning toward excluding excerpts from public speeches).

And no commercial - unless the commercial could stand alone as a very short film (like, say, some of Ridley Scott's early promos). That last point may seem like splitting hairs, especially because I'll include what are essentially home movies, but hey, you gotta draw the line somewhere...

Music to My Ears: #iPodAlbumPlaylist


Since March, I've been making my way through a massive, 600+ song "album playlist" on my iPod. It includes both perennial favorites and LPs I acquired from friends without listening to them before. After each album finished, I tweeted a picture of the cover and a link to my favorite track. Now that the playlist is done, I am featuring the entire lineup here.

The playlist was shuffled by album, so the order is entirely random.
