#WatchlistScreenCaps, 2/8 - 2/12 (the final round-up)


Here are the last ten films I watched (except for my Hollywood classic marathon, which was gathered on a separate page), with a screen-captured image and caption. Linked titles lead to my posts on that film. This is my final round-up, although two concluding posts will go up later today. One entry features screen-cap "cast-offs" I took without using (many of which are equally or more compelling than the images I chose), while the concluding entry links to numerous pages organizing my viewing diary chronologically (by release date) and by category. That last entry will also include a screen-cap from one more film, the final movie I'll be watching in the twelve months from February 12, 2013 to February 12, 2014. It will be a short film; appropriately enough, my final feature was Yellow Submarine, the film I chose to illustrate my announcement of the #WatchlistScreenCaps series one year ago. Visit my #WatchlistScreenCaps archive for images from everything I've watched in the past year.
