2017 Movie Watched List
Movie Watched list are always interesting to read to see what order people watch films in, over the past two years I have started doing watched lists with two different styles to talk about the over 1000 movies I had seen. This year I decided to mix it up once more. This time I will be listing the films in 10 like before and then picking just my favourites on a couple of subject’s I am picking favourites over best because sometimes the best films are difficult re-watches which is why I like the term favourite.
1. Resident Evil: Extinction
2. From Dusk till Dawn
5. Rear Window
7. Go With Me
9. The Wailing
10. The ReZort
2016 was a fantastic year for horror and this one could easily break into any top 3 list because once you start seeing the unknown it just doesn’t stop twisting in ways you simply couldn’t guess it could go.
It was boring, confusing and felt just like a rip off of many over films.
Jong-Gu – The Wailing
Jong-Gu is the police officers that must look into the mysterious deaths in his village and as everything unfolds he must decide whether he wants to investigate the story through logical ideas or supernatural once his own daughter becomes infected with what has been affecting the village. This character isn’t the strongest but he feels like a real man having to struggle with everything that has been happening.
Lieutenant Karl Aker – Kite
This film sucked on so many levels but having Samuel L Jackson giving one of his worst performances of his career that was nearly impossible to watch.
James Stewart – Vertigo and Rear Window
This is easily the star performance as it shows two of his best performance of his career that can’t be overlooked by anyone who enjoys classic films.
Any other question you would like to know about the selection feel free to leave a comment and I will answer or maybe even add to future Watched Lists.

The Simpsons Challenge
Episode 8 – Bart the Daredevil
Couch Gag – This time we get the couch tipping over with Maggie falling perfect on a cushion on front of the television.
Plot Synopsis – After seeing a motorcycle daredevil at a monster truck show, Bart becomes a death-defying daredevil skateboarder.
What is going on really – We start this episode as Homer at Moe’s and Bart at home with friends watching wrestling with the same reaction before they both get drawn to Truckasaurus event.
To get to go to the event the boys must sit through one of Lisa’s musical event at school which Homer counts down till the very end. Arriving late the Simpsons car gets eaten by Truckasaurus and Bart becomes fascinated by the daredevil Lance Murdoch.
When Bart gets himself into trouble while performing stunts he doesn’t listen to advice he becomes a popular with the kids in town until he wants to jump Springfield Gorge.
Lisa being concerned tells the family as Homer bans him for jumping the Gorge showing the rebellious side of Bart he refuses to back down on his promise. But in their battle Homer ends up jumping the gorge showing Bart just how dangerous it actually is.
Final Thoughts – This episode shows just how Bart always seeks attention and can be easily impressed, this episode also has some of the most famous scenes with Homer and the accident scene.
Behind the scenes with John C McGinley!
The Belko Experiment in cinemas Friday 21st April
Office Space meets Battle Royale as an office block is turned into a bloody arena when the staff are pitted against each other in a vicious kill or be killed game, in this top-notch horror thriller from director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and writer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy).
The Simpsons Challenge
Episode 6 – Dead Putting Society
Couch Gag – This time we get the whole family including Snowball II and Santa’s Little Helper
Plot Synopsis – In an attempt to show up Ned Flanders, Homer pits Bart against Ned’s son, Todd, in a miniature golf competition.
What is going on really – We start with Homer doing yard work with an old lawnmower only for the start of the rivalry between Homer and Ned as Homer gets shown up by Flanders and his life.
Homer snaps leading to him getting kicked out of Flanders house as he questions why his perfect isn’t as perfect as his, while Ned is dealing with how he treated Homer wrong.
This gives us a chance to see how Reverend Lovejoy has to deal with Ned’s religious issues at all hours of the day which is going to be an ongoing event through the series.
Continuing the rivalry, we get Bart and Todd having to face each other in a mini gold (crazy golf in England) tournament so Homer can get one over Flanders for once.
Homer and Ned Flanders
Final Thoughts – I feel this episode is very important because we get good adult jokes going on throughout the show that children wouldn’t understand. I also liked the inclusion of the beginning of the rivalry between Homer and Ned in what is the second episode where Homer doesn’t think his family is good enough compared to another.
