February is a short month so I’m going to have to combine two posts in one.
Let’s start off with some lists and non-review posts
Wandering Through The Shelves Blog has yet another intriguing topic for this week’s Thursday Movie Picks: Father & Son Movies
Drew has been spotlighting Xavier Dolan, which he concluded with an open letter to the Canadian filmmaker
I love fun top 10 list – Nostra just picked his Top 10 Time Travel Movies!
For his Wedding Anniversary, Michael listed his fabulous 80s music picks for his Soundtrack of My Life series
Now on to reviews!
- Stu reviewed adventure drama Tracks
- Mikey reviewed Kingsman: The Secret Service
- Mark reviewed indie horror It Follows
- Margaret reviewed Birdman (which deservedly won Best Picture, yay!)
- Josh reviewed Jupiter Ascending
- Rodney reviewed found footage thriller As Above So Below
- Steven reviewed one of my all time favorites, Ben-Hur
- Abbi posted her Film Friday reviews, including Selma & Cake
It still hasn’t been a very productive month of movie watching for me, but there are lots more movies released in March so hopefully I’ll have a longer list to report at the end of the month :)
Theory of Everything
I’ve written my review of Nightcrawler to post next week. Suffice to say I think Jake Gyllenhaal was robbed! Theory of Everything was quite moving and I’m glad the story is as much about Jane Hawking than Stephen Hawking’s struggle with ALS. It’s definitely a juicy role for any actor, and something that The Academy usually loves, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised Eddie Redmayne won. I’ll update this list tonight after I figure out what to watch after dinner, today’s technically still February ;)
Somewhere in Time
Pride & Prejudice
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Phantom of the Opera
Movie of the Month
Yet another Blindspot list make my Movie of the Month!
It’s a pretty easy choice though, it’s definitely earned its classic status. As for contemporary films, I’d put Nightcrawler as my pick of February.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post… enjoy your weekend everybody!
