#WatchlistScreenCaps, 1/12 - 1/19


Here are the last ten films I watched, with a screen-captured image and caption. Linked titles lead to my posts on that film. There was no particular theme or pattern to my viewing, but coincidentally three films involve whales. Visit my #WatchlistScreenCaps archive for images from everything I've watched since February.

This was a good batch of viewings, and most were first-time! (I had seen the Melies before, of course, and the shorter version of Big Red One, but none of the rest...)
