Lisa’s Week In Review: 2/10/20 — 2/16/20

I hope everyone had a happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, let’s just admit the obvious.  After last week’s Oscar Sunday extravaganza, there was no way that I wasn’t going to spend most of this week getting some rest and that’s exactly what I did.  A part of me regrets it because I’ve always been the type who thinks, “That hour you spent doing nothing was an hour that you’ll never get back!”  But, as I’ve matured and grown or whatever, I’ve come to realize that sometimes you really have to appreciate the peace of doing nothing for an hour.

However, on Friday, I did finally manage to start my new review series: Love on the Shattered Lens!  All through the rest of February, I’ll be reviewing some films about love.  Some of them are happy films.  Some of them are sad films.  Some are good.  Some are bad.  And I’ll be reviewing them all!

Anyway, here’s what I watched, read, and listened to this week.  As you’ll notice, this was a very musical week for me.  That’s because I hosted the weekly #ILikeToWatch live tweet on Saturday and I had 60 minutes worth of music to select.  As you can tell from the end result, it was a fun search!
