Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn Due to some pretty heavy illness this week I wasn’t able to watch many films. Almost any in fact. It ended up with one movie watched on the Monday evening, and that’s it. Having gone from a 14 movie week that’s...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I had secretly wanted to have a week where I watched at least 14 films. I’d come close on a couple of occasions but thought it might just be too much. This week however I managed it – 14 films, 12...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I’ve been looking at the data and I’m comfortably heading to watch more films than I set as a target (about 410 at the moment). I wondered if that meant I would get 365 new films this year (films that I...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn It was finally the week of Godalming Film Festival, so I spent a lot of the week wrapped up in the cinema experience – setting up venues, taking tickets, answering questions etc. I actually saw 3 more films than listed below,...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I’ve randomly watched lots of films aimed at a younger audience this week, which was not planned.

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn The Hitman’s Bodyguard I finally caved to watching this on a family recommendation, but I ended up fairly disappointed. There’s some interesting ideas in this – the distinction between being a bodyguard or an assassin as what’s good/bad right/wrong when...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn Rashomon Another ‘classic’ I knew a lot about but hadn’t seen, and every bit of quality is dripping off this film. The story’s delivery is so clever and a definite example of it being done so well the first time it...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn Tuesday 17th was the first day in about 4 weeks that I didn’t watch a movie. I think making sure I watch one a day was really helpful for building up a head of steam and enjoying the movie watching –...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I watched a number of films this week that had been on the list for a while that I expected more of. I felt a bit let down by a number of them, which is a real shame. But I watched...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn This week is a good mix of every type of film – a couple of classics, films I wanted to watch, a couple of recommendations, and some upcoming podcast viewings. It’s been pretty easy to get through them too, I’m thoroughly...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I ran a poll on social media a little while back about whether I should watch ‘classic’ movies that I’ve never seen but that I’m not sure I’m going to enjoy. These are films like The Sound of Music, Singin’ In...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn So this episode covers the week before my wedding, and the two weeks after when I was on honeymoon.

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn To try to keep on track more I’m going to change the point at which I cut off the week of films.

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn Sorry I’ve not released something in a few weeks. This is a catch up after a period where I’ve not had time to write up and record about the films (as well as watching fewer films). Not everything on the list...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn All the films turned bad this week. I don’t know why, but there were some real stinkers in here. That probably explains why the weekend ended up being a watch of several films I knew I liked just to even things...

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn As much as I’ve had some weeks that seemed to be themed, there’s no real trend this week.

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn Through the randomness of the universe I watched some films from a few of my favourite directors this week.

Matthew’s Letterboxd Watchlist Matthew’s Letterboxd Diary iTunes RSS Feed Google Play Stitcher Radio TuneIn I had an interesting moment of being very burned out on films on Tuesday this week. I just could not relish the idea of watching a film. I suspect this is to do with the lack of films I was genuinely...
