Another month done. Here are the links to April's reviews broken up by genre and arranged alphabetically with my picks for best and worst of each. The genres may not fit all of the movies perfectly, but this way I have less work.
The Usual Suspects
V for Vendetta
Best: "Inception"...duh, followed by "The Usual Suspects"
Worst: "Drive". It really didn't deliver.
A Night in Casablanca
Going My Way
How Green Was My Valley
Some Like It Hot
The Jungle Book
The Life of Emile Zola
Best: I actually think that "Jaws" is the best of this list. It keeps the attention from the beginning, a great movie.
Worst: Although "How Green Way My Valley" had a good ending that brought the tears, it wasn't enough to make up for the rest of the film and Roddy McDowall.
In the Loop
Best: "The Producers", though I am generally fond on Nathan Lane.
Worst: The barrage and failure to wrap up the third act place "In the Loop" at the bottom.
Man on Wire
Best: "Man on Wire" is a great movie, it's really one of the best documentaries I've seen.
A Beautiful Mind
Catch Me If You Can
Days of Heaven
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
The Crying Game
Best: "A Beautiful Mind" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" followed closely by "Frost/Nixon" and "Slumdog Millionaire".
Worst: "Mommie Dearest"! What a horrible ending!
Paris, je t'aime
Best: This movie is really quite something.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence
Best: "Star Trek" simply because of the keen special effects and the good action.
Worst: "A.I." because it failed to end properly.
Worst: "Pi". For whatever reason, I've found that I really don't like Darren Aronofsky's movies. Maybe it's because he likes to push the viewer and I don't like being pushed.
