#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...
