My viewing log. All the films (listed at IMDb) I've seen during this month.

Also, films *listed* at IMDb but the new (improved, LOL) search function can't find them for this list (as of yet):

#6 - OL, 2/2/18. My So Called Family (Charmain Johnson, 2010, sh) - 4/10 (P) #7 - OL, 2/2/18. Speechless (Sara del Pino, 2012, sh) - 7/10 (FF) #90 - TV, 2/24/18. Big Boy (Bryan Campbell, 2014, sh) - 6/10 (FF) #94 - TV, 2/24/18. La tête de l'emploi (Right Person for the Job, Wilfried Méance, 2015, sh) - 8/10 (R).

Notes: TV = TV viewing OL = online viewing

R = Recommended (8-10/10) FF = For Fanatics Only (5-7/10) P = Pass (1-4/10)

The End!

Due to higher powers my 'viewing log' (Jul 2013 - Feb 2018) ends here. If just one (1) IMDb user found it useful I'm quite happy (the more the merrier though).

My contact addy (for questions, suggestions, recommendations (etc.) about ALL my lists) remains the same: miran_kor@yahoo.com

Happy film watching! Enjoy great Cinema!
