Movie magic

Lovey and I are going away this long weekend, and I’ve been tasked with putting together a list of movies to watch while we’re hiding away in rural Victoria. Lovey likes B-grade samurai films, documentaries on everything from extreme fishing to architecture, and Japanese anime. (Is that double-stating? I mean, all anime is Japanese by default, right? Just ignore my language ramblings.) I like terrible romcoms, action movies, and sci fi. So we occasionally find things to watch together (Lovey doesn’t mind action films, and I do like documentaries every now and then), and sometimes we compromise, and often we just end up watching QI reruns while we bicker over what to watch.

So I give to you my list of some of the films I’d like to see, and those I just want to rewatch until the end of time.
