I did better this month than I did last, possibly due to Spring Break and an overall lack of pressing school work. I didn’t watch a movie a day, but got several movies reviewed at various sites, and even made it to the movies more than once! Let’s look at what the month in movies has put out.
1. The AristoCats*
2. RKO 281
7. Robin Hood*
8. Anna Karenina (2012)
19. The Rescuers*
22. Out of Sight
26 films watched in March (up 4 from February)
10 were rewatches
16 were first-time viewings
2 were theatrical releases
Top 5 Favorite Classic Films of the Month:
1. The Rescuers
2. Apartment for Peggy
3. The Narrow Margin
4. Nicholas and Alexandra
5. Gentleman’s Agreement
Favorite Theatrical Film of the Month: Surprisingly, the movie I had the least interest in seeing ended up being my favorite. Olympus Has Fallen is a strong B-movie action film in the vein of Die Hard, and is far better than the latest Die Hard that’s out there. Hilariously patriotic, it’s going to be a fun movie to have on DVD to watch with friends.
Worst Film of the Month: Hands down, The ABCs of Death is the worst movie of the month. A bloated two-hour runtime with only a handful of decent sketches. What’s good is okay, but what’s bad is unwatchable. My review over at Cinematic Katzenjammer describes it far better.
Biggest Disappointment of the Month: Stoker was a letdown if only because it had high expectations. A boring, uninspired plot brought down because of the blandest leading lady. Had the side characters been given a movie something could have been done
