This Week in (Virtual) Tickets: 13 April 2020 - 19 April 2020

Another "honestly, what have I actually been doing?" week.

This Week in Tickets

It hasn't been as completely quiet as it might look from that sparse page - I've been clearing some stuff off the DVR and catching up on finishing some reviews from the middle of last year's Fantasia Festival - here's a link!

The weird thing is that I've been starting stupidly late on the nights when I do watch movie - on Thursday, for instance, I started the double feature of Frankenstein Created Woman & The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires at around 9pm, which is only really smart if they're both something like 85 minutes apiece. I also waited until pretty late for The Booksellers on Saturday night.

Sunday, I actually started earlier with A Lifetime Treasure & A Beautiful Moment, but that still ran late enough that I decided to save Westworld and Killing Eve for the next night. It's weird; big stuff is happening on Westworld but it still seems like they've used up a lot of a very short season reintroducing characters and building a mystery around something I kind of took for granted at the end of last season while Killing Eve is so far very much in "new showrunners trying to do their thing but last year's writers left a messy freaking cliffhanger that you can't do much with" mode.

Part of it's what I said last week about just spending too much time scrolling at the end of the day, but there's also the fact that there's kind of a glare on my TV until the sun sets, and I kind of don't want to close all of my blinds, like that is the line between me being a weird recluse and a healthily socialized human being.

Anyway, this will probably get weirder before lockdown is over. Follow my Letterboxd page if you want the movie stuff without the looks inside where my head's at.
