angelicmobster8: black and white photo of katharine hepburn, text says i'm still here (Katharine Hepburn)

  • Sleepwalkers (1992) It got trippy around the middle

  • Pufnstuf (1970) At first it was trippy and seemed like something stoners would like, but mostly it was boring and shrill. Worst movie of the month.

  • Jurassic World (2015) Saw in theatre.

  • Annie (2014)

  • The Boxtrolls (2014)

  • Bowfinger (1999)

  • The Mexican (2001)

  • AI: Artificial Intelligence (2001) Started off kind of slow (in a good way) and then got trippy.

  • Drugstore Cowboy (1989)

angelicmobster8: black and white photo of a monarch butterfly (Butterfly)

  1. Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - Watched in theatre

  2. Annabelle (2014) Was good until the end

  3. Creepshow (1982) Fun bad. Why was Leslie Neilson so sexy?

  4. Mr. Bean's Holiday (2007) was actually quite lovely, I dunno

  5. My Own Private Idaho (1991) Not at all what I was expecting. So beautiful. Kind of surreal, it go all Shakespeare during the Bob scenes.

  6. If I Stay (2014) yes, it made me cry

  7. The Winter Guest (1997) really good, ambiguous ending though.

  8. Cas & Dylan (2013)

angelicmobster8: black and white photo of cherries (Cherries)
Not many at all this month:

  1. My Life Without Me (2003) Canadian, directed by Isabel Coixet.

  2. The Grand Seduction (2013) Canadian, can't really remember the original too well.

  3. Fury (2014)

  4. Johnny Mnemonic (1995)

  5. Bessie (2015) Directed by Dee Rees

  6. The Skeleton Twins (2014)

They were all good. Well, Johnny Mnemonic was good in its own way.

Will hopefully see some movies at the theatre this summer. Haven't been to the movies since February.
angelicmobster8: black and white photo of a monarch butterfly (Butterfly)

  1. Love Happens (2009) Bleh

  2. Lizzie Borden Took An Axe (2014) My first Lifetime movie.

  3. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

  4. Devil in A Blue Dress (1995)

  5. Malcolm X (1992) OMG, those zoot suits!

  6. European Vacation (1985) directed by Amy Heckerling

  7. The Fault in Our Stars (2014) Didn't make me cry

  8. Sabrina (1995) An okay remake. Glad they took the suicide bit out.

  9. Begin Again (2013)

  10. Quicksilver (1986) eightiesliscious

  11. Wee Willie Winkie (1937)

  12. Code 46 (2003) I feel like the setting was really interesting, but the story was boring.

  13. Lorenzo's Oil (1992) Did make me cry

  14. One Missed Call (2008) bleh

  15. Jodorowsky's Dune (2013) The way people talked about Jupiter Ascending, this movie could probably be made the way it was originally intended.

  16. Belle (2013) directed by Amma Asante

  17. Too Young to Die (1990) Brad Pitt played a lot of psychopaths in the 90s (watched on youtube)

Been watching Slings and Arrows this month. Also, this short film.
angelicmobster8: a well manicured hand with a large ring tightening a lace on the green shoe (Shoe)

  1. Firestarter (1984) Probably the worst movie of the month, but not too terrible. That was some odd casting for George C Scott though.

  2. (La Femme) Nikita (1990) I've wanted to see it forever, not disappointed.

  3. Gloria (1999) Not a bad remake, the kid is way less annoying

  4. The Milagro Beanfield War (1988) really pretty and whimsical

  5. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) Dermot Mulroney should get all of Sean Penns roles, just sayin'

  6. 2010 (1984)

  7. The Invisible Woman (2013) I was worried that Ralph Fiennes would be too sexy as Charles Dickens, and I wouldn't be able to read his books with any seriousness. This didn't happen, thank gosh.

  8. Snowpiercer (2013) Best movie of the month

  9. Edge of Tomorrow (2014)

  10. Loser (2000) Directed by Amy Heckerling. Can't stand Jason Biggs. Second worst movie of the month, but I still really liked bits of it.

  11. Snow Falling on Cedars (1999) Also really pretty.

  12. She's All That (1999) I thought I had seen this movie, turns out I've just seen a lot of bits of it. And Not Another Teen Movie.

  13. 22 Jump Street (2014)

  14. Foxfire (2012) Very good.

  15. Tammy (2014)

  16. Where the Buffalo Roam (1980)

  17. For the Love of the Game (1999)

  18. A Damsel in Distress (1937)

  19. Afternoon Delight (2013) Directed by Jill Soloway.

  20. The Body Snatcher (1945) Boris Karloff was so good in this. That scene with Bela... and the cat!

  21. Cat People (1942) More vintage cats!

Also watched "Orphan Black" and "Black Books".
angelicmobster8: black and white photo of katharine hepburn, text says i'm still here (Katharine Hepburn)

  1. Monster Squad (1987) Saw during the Great Digital Fim Fest. I really like it. In terms of 80's action, it seemed very ahead of it's time and polished. Of course there are certain dated things. Like the heroes blackmail a girl with nude photos and make a big deal over virginity.

  2. Birthday Girl (2001) I didn't expect it to be a comedy. Was okay, I guess.

  3. Like Father, Like Son (2013) Really good.

  4. The Missing Person (2008) Michael Shannon!

  5. Divergent (2014)

  6. Frankie and Alice (2010) Underappreciated. Canadian production.

  7. Happy Go Lovely (1951)

  8. The Lifeguard (2013) Directed by Liz W Garcia

  9. Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)

  10. So This Is Paris (1955)

  11. I Love You to Death (1990) OMG, William Hurt and Keanu Reeves in this movie.

  12. Godzilla (2014) Was bleh. Also, I understand how people are annoyed that this movie focuses on like, the only white family in Japan. I thought "At least they paired Bryan Cranston with Juliette Binoche rather than an actress in her 30s", and then they fucking killed her within the first 5 minutes! WTF. I do love that part where the dudes jumped from the plane set to that music from the beginning of 2001. That's what made the teaser trailer so intense.

  13. The Lunchbox (2013) Really good. I've had a crush on Irrfam Khan since In Treatment.

  14. Tracks (2013) Mia Wasikowska was also in In Treatment.

  15. Finding Vivian Maier (2013) Here are two articles I like about that doc.

  16. Deliver us From Evil (2014) Was okay. Same old lapsed Catholic fighting demons and finding God again type of movie. The scenes in the little girls room were pretty creepy though. And Sean Harris gave a pretty good possessed dude performance.

Actually, his character was quite heartbreaking once the demon was exorcised.

I guess Only Lovers was my fave, So This is Paris and Godzilla are tied for least fave.

These are the other movies I saw during the film fest, all are re-watches (?)

  1. Blade Runner (1982) So friggin' beaut!

  2. Alien (1979) Jonesy was a star!

  3. Aliens (1986)

  4. Kill Bill Vol 1 (2003)

  5. Kill Bill Vol 2 (2004)

  6. Pans Labyrinth (2006) The English subtitles weren't working, so we watched it all in Spanish. Also so beaut.

  7. Hellboy (2004)

angelicmobster8: a well manicured hand with a large ring tightening a lace on the green shoe (Shoe)

  1. Johnny Guitar (1954) Joan is great in this

  2. American Hustle (2013) too bad David O Russell is a creep

  3. Enemy (2013) wtf that ending. Canadian/Spanish production

  4. The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

  5. The To-Do List (2013) directed by Maggie Carey

  6. Olive Kitteridge (2014) technically mini-series, directed by Lisa Cholodenko

  7. Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014)

  8. The Book Thief (2013)

  9. Transcendence (2014) the worst on the list, but not horrible

  10. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

  11. Haunter (2013) wasn't too bad, Canadian production

  12. The Natural (1984) super pretty cinematography, Caleb Deschanel knows how to use sunlight ("sunlight"?)

  13. Picture Day (2012) Canadian production, directed by Kate Melville

  14. The Door in the Floor (2004)

  15. X-Men Days of Future Past (2014), part of the Digital Film Fest, have 8 more movies to go. Haven't seen a movie in a theatre since Desolation of Smaug. I think. Too bad Bryan Singer might be a rapist.

  16. Rollercoaster (1977)

So, not off to the greatest start trying to watch movies directed by women. It's been difficult watching movies period though. I wish the Palace cinemas were still open, I could see more new releases.
