So I figured since I kinda watch a lot of movies and don't really get to even talk about half of them on here, i'd start posting a list of every movie I watched each month, at the end of each month, and give little one or two sentence thoughts on each of them. Yes, I keep track in a little booklet! For the titles with asterixes next to them, head over to the reviews section on the sidebar to your right to read my full reviews on those movies!
So here's every movie, horror and non-horror, that I saw in January!
About Schmidt - One of my favorite movies Nicholson has done in the past 20 years.
Amusement* - Clown segment good. Rest of movie bad.
Appaloosa - Awesome movie, could've done without the Zellweger.
Burn After Reading (twice) - The Coens can do no wrong.
Chapter 27 - Actors, if you're gonna lose or gain serious amounts of weight for a film, make sure it's a good one.
Deja Vu - Suprisingly somewhat enjoyable.
Eden Lake* - Best horror movie i've seen in '09 thus far.
Event Horizon - Creepy, scary, gory, i've always liked this movie.
Fantastic Flesh : The Art Of Make-up EFX* - Awesome documentary, if you're into this sort of thing.
Friday the 13th - One of the best and most important slashers out there, but not my favorite of the franchise to re-watch.
Friday the 13th Part 2 - Second favorite in the franchise.
Friday the 13th Part 3 - Can't wait to see it in 3D finally (this Tuesday on DVD!).
Friday the 13th Part 4 - Favorite in the franchise.
Friday the 13th Part 5 - Some of the best kills in the franchise, despite the lack of Voorhees.
The Fountain - Pretentious, but it's got its brilliant moments.
Garden State - May well be my favorite dramedy of all time.
Gran Torino - Bizarre and at times tiresome but ultimately rewarding film.
My Best Fiend : Klaus Kinski - If you know the names Klaus Kinski and Werner Herzog, you will probably find this documentary highly interesting, maddening, and touching.
My Bloody Valentine 3D* - Three dimensions of dissapointment.
My Name Is Bruce - If you've ever waited several hours on a line to meet Bruce Campbell and you have a couple friends who have done the same, gather round, drink a bunch of beer, and watch this movie as that's really the only way it can be appreciated.
Pineapple Express - Move over, Half Baked!
A Real Friend - Incredible premise, poor execution. Seeing Leatherface sitting at a desk in a classroom full of students may make the whole experience worth it, however.
Repo : The Genetic Opera - I can appreciate and respect the uniqueness and effort of the filmmakers, but I just do not like musicals one bit and I never will.
Step Brothers - Will Ferell's still got it!
Texas Chainsaw Massacre ('74) - One of the best horror movies ever made, hands down.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre : The Beginning - Brings nothing new to the table but still manages to be fun.
Transsiberian - Highly recommend you check this one out.
The Visitor - If you don't give Rourke the Oscar, give it to Richard Jenkins.
Walk Hard : The Dewey Cox Story - Utterly ridiculous and utterly hilarious.
The Wrestler (twice)* - A diehard insider wrestling fans dream. Give Rourke the Oscar.
So what's my favorite movie that I saw this past month? That honor would probably have to go to ...
If you've seen any of these movies, leave a comment with your thoughts!
