It was a crazy week, so OscarQuest is a little late. With two snow days this week, I was able to get back into some classic movies… Until my DVR failed and I lost a good 4 movies I had saved on it! And those snow days? Well, when school got back going I paid for it! A 14-hour work day on Thursday following by a 17-hour (!) work day on Friday… And that’s with no lesson planning or grading! Gotta “love” basketball season, away games, and Friday night late games.
Just two movies this week:
Some say this is Harrison Ford’s best film and I was pretty impressed. Surprised it took me this long to see it! And it was a reminder for all that time I spent out in rural Maryland near Lancaster County with the high Amish population.
Love Affair (1939)
It pains me to admit, but I struggle watching most old films. I got through Love Affair, though I wasn’t thrilled by it. Not bad, but when you combine a genre I’m not thrilled about together with everything that is 1930’s filmmaking, and I just couldn’t get into it too much. C’est la vie.
