This is for 5-Word 365; my adventure in year-round movie reviewing. If there is anything you think I should watch, either cos you love it, or you hate it, or you just want to see me suffer, put it in a comment below. If I haven’t seen it before (and can get it without much expense) then it will go on the list. If I have already seen it then I will let you know, and may possibly add a five word review for you.

I will say this though: there is a reason I haven’t watched any Twilight movies, so don’t even bother.

Happy trails, amigos.

      Pokemon? Really? I dunno about that…
      I haven’t seen Following, so there is a very good chance it could make the cut. As for Twi-shite, the question is, how much of a masochist am I?

        You should totally do Debbie Does Dallas.

      • Ryan McNeely · November 28, 2012

        It’s on the list!

      • theipc · November 28, 2012

        LOL – maybe it could be a guest post or re-blog on my new site : )

    Michael Caine month. There must be a few you haven’t seen yet!

    • Ryan McNeely · January 17, 2012

      Dude, let’s try to keep it to individual movies instead of themed events, okay? Michael Caine month! You’re trying to kill me?!

    Here’s a suggestion for WTF Sundays – Marronnier. It’s a bizarre Japanese horror movie with really creepy life size dolls, and not the real doll kind of dolls. Also Tomie is a great series of movies.

    • Ryan McNeely · January 23, 2012

      Life-size dolls scare the shit out of me, so that might just end up as three paragraphs of swearing, but if I can get it, it’s on the list. Thanks dude

    Its not old, but could you watch the new footloose for me cos i really dont wanna subject myself to it – the original is such a classic!
    day 83 i think you should treat yourself to alvin and the chipmunks or the squeakquel 🙂

    • Ryan McNeely · March 18, 2012

      Haha! I actually want to see Footloose. I’ve heard a lot good things about it, plus the original is awesome. Maybe I’ll do a remake week or something.
      I have a stash of kids flicks to watch that I got from a friend at work after she raided her son’s collection. There is no chipmunk action amongst it though. Perhaps another time…

    The Miracle Maker – very topical if you watch it next weekend.

    Nice to meet you on Saturday.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen any of them, but the Studio Ghibli movies are always worth a watch…personally, I would recommend Howl’s Moving Castle or My Neighbour Totoro. One’s pretty epic…the others just fluff and easy to watch.

    Again, not sure if you’ve seen it, but a film called Ink. I LOVE it. I’d really like to know what you think of it. I’ve heard mixed reviews. Would be good to have another.

    Being John Malkovich is also a very good film. I like the ones that mess with your head. So The Machinist is also a very good film on that note.

    A Life Less Ordinary is very good too.

    Also, Hunger and Shame (both directed by Steve McQueen) are amazing films. Hard to watch on occasions, but really beautifully done.

    If I think of any more, or watch any other amazing films that I don’t think you’ll have seen, I shall let you know.

    (Notice how I had to go through my own blog to find most of these names haha. Seen so many obscure films in this process, it’s insane!)

    • Ryan McNeely · April 4, 2012

      I haven’t seen Ink but it’s on my list on Netflix. I hope to get to it in the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye out!

      I’ve watched a couple of Ghibli movies and loved them, but never had the chance to binge and catch up.

      I loved Being John Malkovich, and Life Less Ordinary was interesting but could have been better.

      I haven’t seen Hunger or Shame yet. I’ll probably get to them eventually I’m sure.

  9. Alison Wilson · April 18, 2012

    In addition to Street Fight and Roger & Me, I have another for documentary Saturday – Gasland – very topical considering the current propositions for the UK….

    • Ryan McNeely · April 18, 2012

      I’ve already seen Roger & Me unfortunately, but not Street Fighter. I spotted Gasland on Netflix last week. Worth a look, is it?

      Nice one. It’s already on my mental to-do list.

Go ahead, punk. Make my day.
