Monthly Roundup: March Movie-Watching Recap

Though I’ve been blogging for over 2 years now, I’ve never actually done a monthly movie-watching recap before. But I’ve been inspired by EricAndy, Diana and Andina so from now on, I’m going to do this on the first or second day of the month.

Like Diana said on her post, I too feel so diminutive seeing how many more films my fellow bloggers see in a given month! I count myself lucky if I got to see four movies in a week, and this weekend I was hoping to see Carnage or Whistleblower but ended with a big fat zero as I was busy all day Friday and went to an Indonesian Festival at the University of Minnesota on Saturday.

Anyway here are the movies I saw in March:

  1. My Week with Marilyn
  2. Hunger Games
  3. Casablanca
  4. Three Musketeers
  5. Lambent Fuse
  6. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
  7. Senna
  8. Breaking Dawn
  9. Puss in Boots
  10. Contagion

Re-watch:

Favorite March Movie:

I’d say it’s a tie between Casablanca and Senna, they’re two very different films but both made a tremendous impression on me. I still plan on doing an appreciation post for Casablanca sometime this month.

So this month I only saw a total of ten new films [gasp!] with about three that I re-watched, bringing the total to a whopping… thirteen! [wince] Yes I know, it’s VERY low for even a common moviegoer, let alone a movie blogger!! I am hoping to see more movies each month and maybe even add one or two movies on week nights. Well the nice thing is, I was actually able to review most of the films I saw, whilst I still haven’t got around to reviewing a few of the movies I saw around the holidays (December/January), such as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse. I’ll do mini reviews of those films I mentioned in the near future.

Well, my goal is to watch 100 new films by the end of the year (by *new* I mean films I had not seen before, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be a contemporary film released in 2021). So far I’ve seen 19 of those this year, which means I have to see an average of 10 films every month if I were to hit my goal 😀


Well, surely the lot of you saw way more films than I did. So what’s your favorite film(s) you saw in March?
