My Week in Movies, 2016 Week 22

I’m trying to get back onto the reviewing horse one small step at a time, and I think what is most important it to try and review more films each week than I’m adding to the pile to review. Hence, this past week saw just 2 relevant films watched, but three reviewed. If I keep this up, I should be caught up in a little over four months. Jeez that seems like ages. I’m not going to worry about the maths of it all, I’m just going to write some reviews now and then, and try to stay sane. After all, I’ve got a wedding to plan now. Here’s what I watched this week:

The Color of Pomegranates (1969)
pomegranates peacock
So bad. Unintelligbly awful. Incomprehensibly banal.
Lists: 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, “Bad” Movies
Full review here.

Spotlight (2015)
Typically, of all this year’s Best Picture nominees, I watched the winner last. It’s almost certainly going to be added to the 1001 Movies list later this year, so expect a full review soon. For now though it wouldn’t have been my pick for Best Picture. Not even sure it’d be in the top half of the nominees. Still good though.
Lists: 2016 Movies
Full review coming soon.
