I failed miserably at my last ambitious library loot attempt. Seriously. Out of seven films, I saw one. I suppose it makes sense, two of those rented I had already seen. And there was a three day holiday weekend that distracted me, plus a few other extra-curriculars. The only one I managed to watch was Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise. I really didn’t care for it. I know it’s supposed to be hilarious, but I just didn’t get it. There was a funny old Hungarian babushka who stole every scene she was in, but besides her, I was just annoyed by the whole thing. I’m going to have to wait a while before I attempt Ghost Dog or Coffee and Cigarettes. I’m not giving up on you Jarmusch!
It’s not only that I didn’t watch my library loot, I seem to have lost a desire to watch any movies right now. I literally went to two different theatres, two libraries, a Blockbuster and a Hollywood Video without finding a single thing that seemed interesting. So I just ended up renting a bunch of TV on DVD. So, although they’re not movies, here’s my most recent library loot. I think that the release of Moon on Friday will get me out of this funk.
