January 2015 Recap + Pick of Movie of the Month

MonthlyRecap2015

First month of 2015 has come and gone. Hello February! This is always a special time for me as it’s my birthday month and I reach a milestone this year [moving up the age bracket 😉 ]. I don’t fret about getting older though, as I think you are only as old as you feel and I don’t feel a day over 30, he..he..

Well, it’s kinda been a rather sluggish start as I’ve only seen a paltry 7 new-to-me movies. But hey, I did get to see a lot more TV shows than I usually do in a given month.

Thursday Movie Picks #29: Married Couple Movies

New-to-me Movies:

Blackhat

The Guest

Lucy

112 Weddings Documentary

The Hundred Foot Journey

Selma

Selma is in my Top 10 of 2014 Movies, even though I saw it in early 2015 I just had to include that on my list. Blackhat proved to be a disappointment, which is a major bummer as I generally love Michael Mann’s work. The Guest, Lucy and The Hundred Foot Journey are all great rentals, definitely worth your while if you haven’t seen them.

Rewatches:

The Dark Knight Rises

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Ever After

So it seems that my hubby & I were in the mood for superhero movies this month. We actually bought the Bluray of X-Men: DOFP weeks ago, and I’m glad we bought it as that movie is as awesome as the first time I saw it. Same could be said with The Winter Soldier, though I find myself liking The Dark Knight Rises a lot more this time around.

January Blindspot:

Rear Window

TV Shows:

Glad I finally got to see this Hitchcock classic. Nice to see 2015 Blindspot starts off strong, and I do have 11 more to go that I can’t wait to see.


Well, has 2015 started off great for you? What’s YOUR favorite movie of January?
