What I’m Watching At Home: Lolita

Lolita - Featured

Viewed on February 23, 2013 via Stanley Kubrick: The Essential Collection DVD Box Set Stanley Kubrick and I haven’t had the greatest relationship. I didn’t understand 2001: A Space Odyssey. I didn’t like the characters or the setting of A Clockwork Orange, and I found the language of that world to be a major hurdle. As […]

What I’m Watching At Home: Battle Royale

Battle Royale - Netflix

Viewed on February 9, 2013 via Netflix Streaming (Buy Battle Royale) I didn’t follow this movie as closely as I would have liked.

On The Road

On the Road - Featured

  I wasn’t sure what to expect from this movie. I’d read the book several years ago and had mixed feelings about it. While I enjoyed joining the characters on their travels, there were stretches of their journey that I found tedious, and at times I had to force myself to keep reading. So I […]
