Every Monday we can talk about what we watched over the weekend. I’d enjoy hearing what new movies, games, or televisions shows were seen over the weekend. This is what I’ve been watching this weekend.

What Have You Been Watching?

August 27th 2012 Edition

This weekend was a relaxing sort of weekend. It was spent Golfing, seeing friends, and reading a ton of Manga (The World God Only Knows – 100+ chapters). I also applied to a lot more jobs on Saturday, but we’ll see where that goes. I’m taking a Resume break today and I’ll continue on the grind tomorrow!

On to the Entertainment!

Movies:

Ruby Sparks – Thankfully this came within 15 miles of my home. I did enjoy it, although it goes into much darker territory than its trailer would suggest. Look for a full review coming soon.

Vertigo – It’s been a long time since I’ve revisited Vertigo and now since its been titled the best film of all-time, what better time than now? I still widely enjoy the movie and it is more entertaining than Citizen Kane. I just don’t believe the techniques used were as significant to film in general. It’s not my favorite film of all-time either, but it still holds up as probably my favorite Hitchcock film.

Video Games:

New Super Mario Bros. 2 – Unlocked all the levels and beat world 9. I think I’m done with this for now. Did I enjoy it? Sure I did, but it didn’t offer much new to the Mario experience.

TV: I pre-ordered Homeland, so I should be starting to watch it this week!

Now it’s your turn! What did you watch this weekend?
