Beguiling Flicks

Over the last few weeks I saw Spielberg (2017), The Beguiled (2017), The House (2017), Next (2007), Gerald's Game (2017) and 1922 (2017). Spielberg Very interesting documentary about the director's career. It gives great insight on the father motifs, divorce narratives and his beneficial nerdiness toward film.

Letterboxd review. 1408 I had a bit of a dive into Stephen King. This is one of the more interest

365+ reviews of 2017

I didn't start the year with the intent to review a movie a day, 365 for the 2017.

My rules for myself were that it didn't matter if I had seen the movie before, as long as I hadn't reviewed it before on letterboxd and that I had to write at least one sentence either about the movie or viewing experience.
