Films I watched last week (13 April to 19 April 2014)

I am not planning to watch any films tonight, so I will post it now:

16-April-2014
No Trace (1950) - 7.5/10 (enjoyable, but the DVD copy I got has poor sound)

17-April-2014
Oath of Vengeance (1944)  - 7/10 (decent, but unremarkable b-western. Viewed via copy downloaded from Internet Archive)

Mike and Stefani (1952) - 7.5/10 (unusual and rarely seen Australian film, largely set after world war two)

18-April-2014
A Railway Station for Two (1982) - 8/10 (dated, yes, but very watchable)

Also during the week I watched a number of television programs, including several episodes of British sitcom "The Army Game".

Also during the week I took photographs using 110 film and 35mm film (taken on Saturday at the beach...it was cold and windy), created IMDb pages for TV programming previously not listed on IMDb (such as this), took photos using 127 film (using the Kodak Brownie Starmite camera I recently got on eBay), played video games, and also did other stuff.

It appears I'm an autistic bisexual agnostic monarchist (I am quite serious on this)

I have been having a lot of daydreams lately. If life exists on other planets, I wonder what their films are like. I also wonder if any of the races have television.

I am hoping that somebody brings back 126 film, and brings back APS film. Not sure if anyone else would buy them, but I would.

I think an Asian monarch should live in a traditional Asian style building.

I feel that early television deserves more respect.

What is "early television"? For US, I say anything up to the final DuMont Network telecast (back in August 1956). For Australia, I say anything up to the debut of "Homicide". Not sure about UK though.

Here is an incomplete list of television "one-offs" in my DVD collection (such as TV movies, specials, pilots, etc.):

I am quite frankly embarrassed by many of my older posts, particularly those from 2008-2010.

I think they should bring back art deco architecture.

I generally dislike most buildings built 1945-onwards. Exceptions include those 1950s suburban houses, they are nice.

It's a shame that no 1950s Australian television series are available on DVD. I've seen a few such series, and while they are simple, they can nevertheless be quite interesting, sometimes quite entertaining.

I feel a castle shouldn't be built out of concrete, and it shouldn't feature elevators.

I'm bored.

On Sunday I will hopefully post the next "Films I watched last week" thread. I have watched four films so far this week.

Is anyone actually reading my blog?

Boots! Boots! (1934) - 7/10 (amusing comedy produced on a very low budget)
