Lisa’s Week In Review: 1/11/21 — 1/17/21


This past week was long but ultimately rewarding.  I didn’t watch as many movies as I should have and I’m going to have to make up for that over the course of this upcoming week but, at the same time, I hosted the I Like To Watch live tweet on Saturday night and, as a result of also hosting both the Friday Night Flix and the Scary Social live tweets, I was also able to introduce a whole new group of people to both Ninja III: The Domination and Messiah of Evil.  Introducing people to new and old things is always a good feeling.

Anyway, here’s what I watched, listened to, and read this week!  I know that I said I was going to start posting my best-of-2020 lists during this upcoming week but it’s going to have to wait for just a little bit longer while I spend the next 7 days catching up on the last few films of the previous year.  (Fear not, time is eternal.)
