  1. Lost River (2014) Wow.

  2. Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015)

April

  1. Punchline (1988) Was mostly a good movie, but none of the stand-up was funny. I think that happens in a lot of movies about comedians.

  2. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace (1999)

  3. Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) these two were so boring, but had lovely costume design. I had seen all of the other movies previously

  5. Dead Man (1995) Meh. I need new glasses, I kind of liked Johnny Depps in this movie.

  6. Irma La Deuce (1963) Not as slut-shamey as I anticipated. But the whole pimp thing is still messed up.

  7. Under the Skin (2013) * This was a part of the Book Riot Read Harder challenge, read the book and watch the movie. TW: for sexual assault

  8. Who's That Knocking at My Door? (1967) I don't know how I feel about this movie. It was all trippy and experimental. TW: for rape/victim blaming/slut shaming

* - Watched on Netflix. Canadian Netflix is kind of bleh, they don't even have a lot of Canadian movies. There are SO many good Canadian movies.

My sister and I couldn't really do the Great Digital Film Fest. Her schedule is messed up and my health is messed up. We were sad about Labyrinth. We went to see these three movies:

  1. Big Trouble in Little China

  2. Ghostbusters

  3. The Thing


In other news, turns out I'm anemic.

  1. Paddington (2014)

  2. Sympathy for Lady Vengeance (2005) *

  3. Unfriended (2015) Worst of the month. I guess kudos for the idea though.

  4. Still Alice (2014)

  5. The Crying Game (1992)

  6. Miss Julia (2014) directed by Liv Ullmann

  7. Advantageous (2015) directed by Jennifer Phang *

  8. The X-Files: I Want to Believe (2008)

  9. On Dangerous Ground (1951)

  10. Fort Tilden (2014) directed by Sarah-Violet Bliss & Charles Rogers. A good example of a good movie (or book or show) with unlikeable female characters. Also, it's one of my dreams for a rich person to pay me a bunch of money for a piece of garbage I happen to be sitting near.
