In an attempt to stick to our movie-related New Years resolutions, Jess and I plan to keep a weekly record of our progress towards our goal. See if we hit our goal this week and what movies we watched. You can also check out our initial resolutions post here.
Remember: Coffee Break is full of odds and ends I’d like to discuss including films I’m watching, links I like, stuff I’m into and oh yeah, coffee!
At the start of every New Year, it’s tradition for FTS to list their movie-related resolutions on the FTS Podcast. Everyone takes turns talking about movie watching habits they’d like to adopt or what film lists they want to cover. But just like going to the gym or learning a new language, the resolutions that appear so shiny and bright in January seem to flat line quickly after the month is over. In an effort to make a serious attempt to tackle this year’s resolutions, I am vowing to keep an updated record of my progress of my main goal of three movies a week by writing a post here on the blog.
American Sniper (2015) Directed by Clint Eastwood. Starring: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Kyle Gallner. IMDB says: “Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle’s pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.”
I was recently contacted to write a review for a relatively new game called Cinelinx. The basic gist is described right in the tagline: The Card Game For People Who Love Movies. I was first introduced to the game when word of their Kickstarter campaign spread around the film community and then later reminded of the fun when fellow FTSer Nick pulled the gang together to play. I love games, cards and movies so I feel like I fall right into this game’s target audience. Did the game deliver the goods? Keep reading to find out if you should add Cinelinx to your must-have list for the gift giving season.
