Well since I've just been reviewing movies as I've been seeing them, in no particular order, with no rhyme or reason; I figured I would give a quick synopsis of this month's reviews. I broke them apart by genre and have them listed alphabetically as well as my picks for best and worst.
Zero Dark Thirty
Best: Surprisingly, this is a very solid group of movies. My favorite is probably "Jurassic Park", but "Skyfall" is magnificent....I obviously can't say anything about "Fight Club".
Worst: Please, I beg of you, take my advice and leave "The Untouchables" untouched.
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Dog Day Afternoon
Life of Pi
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Social Network
Best: There are three for the best: "American Beauty", "Beasts of the Southern Wild", and (although I would never force upon someone else) "Hunger".
Worst: Two for the worst: "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Side Effects", even though they are solid films I liked them the least of any two on this list.
A Fish Called Wanda
Lost in Translation
Silver Linings Playbook
The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
The Producers (1968)
This is Spinal Tap
Best: "This is Spinal Tap" and "Silver Linings Playbook"
Worst: "The Producers" and "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou". Again with this list, it's not that they're bad, just not as good.
The Broadway Melody
From Here to Eternity
Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
On the Waterfront
Best: The one that I enjoyed the most of any was "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes"
Worst: "The Broadway Melody" by far and then "Gentleman's Agreement".
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
The Red Balloon
Both of these films are great, though I liked "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" more.
The Cabin in the Woods
"Cabin in the Woods" definitely the better of the two.
Well I liked "Tron" and pretty much detested "Ralph", so there's no question here it what my picks are.
