This is a sequel of the first post: Picking and watching movies alphabetically.
What do we watch? is a tough one to answer.
We decided to break out of our self-established, comfortable, filter bubble and started watching movies alphabetically.
We made an exception, again, for the letter X and skipped it.1
Q is another letter we had to skip. We couldn’t find a movie starting with Q.

Only few movies in this round left a lasting impression:
Free Solo: this movie was thrilling and intense. Had goosebumps most of the time and wanted to scream.
M: a must see, a milestone in film history.
Utøya: July 22: another one-take movie. I haven’t really liked any one-take movie yet and this one, although covering a movie-worthy topic, wasn’t worth it at all.
What Dreams May Come: the atmosphere was amazing and the progression of film style reflected the topic on a very meta basis.
Zero Days: although the impression manifests that the told story is true, no evidence is provided which would hold up in a court house. This ambiguity in combination with its political explosiveness makes it a movie worth watching… with a grain of salt.
We’re not into superhero movies. ↩
