(Or “Lockdown film log”)

It started off by accident when the youngest wanted to watch Shutter Island and then it became a “thing” with each of us taking turns to pick a film with a very loose rule that it should be something most of us had not seen before.

  1. Shutter Island
  2. What’s eating Gilbert Grape
  3. Mid 90s / 17 Again*
  4. Booksmart+
  5. Birds of Prey
  6. Whip It
  7. Little Women
  8. Extra Ordinary+
  9. 1917¥

  19. The Host
  20. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
  21. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Bill & Ted was the last one before the eldest moved out again. So I’ll stop the official list there. So far the rest of us are carrying on with Dating Amber and Karate Kid the last two we’ve watched. Hopefully I publish this before Friday so I don’t have to mention any more; Although I already know we are going to the cinema to see Bill & Ted 3.

* - At last minute the original picks were deemed unsuitable for the youngest. The eldest picked something on the fly and so we ended up with 17 again. Luckily I had a backup plan for Saint Frances

+ - My picks

¥ - We had a bit of a war theme going on that I put a stop to

§ - We had to watch on a Thursday as the eldest was back at work

« - Missing the eldest (started back at work)

≈ - Some how the eldest hadn’t seen this. The rest of us didn’t mind watching again. Choice
