What’s Been Watched This Month – April 2017

Whats been watched

I do like a list. Here’s what has been watched in April 2017.

If I didn’t blooming work I would love to do more posts, so there’s a few pending in this list. Didn’t get so many films in this month as TV season has started. What with the excellent fourth series of Line Of Duty being binged watched in one evening! There has also been the start of season 3 of my favourite series Better Call Saul. Plus there’s a few guilty pleasures like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Designated Survivor.

21 films this month and a total of 99 since the start of this blog.

Get the Gringo (2012) Wolfman Rating 7.5 – IMDB Rating 7.0
Netflix watch with my son. So much better than the rubbish Blood Father. Mel Gibson channels the good stuff in this film also known in the UK by the ridiculous stupid title of “How I Spend My Summer Vacation”.

May has started well with some bonkers brilliant films that helped go along with all the beer, bourbon and popcorn. Thanks for reading and if there’s any in this month’s viewing selection you liked now or back in the day, feel free to let me know.

    1. Doing “Being There” post as I type, such a delight is our Chance.
      Mickey One is such a curiosity, film noir, french new-wave, surreal and arty and Warren Beatty is all handsome and madcap with a temper. It’s a quirky movie which made it all the better. Enjoy
