FEBRUARY - MOVIES
Ten movies. You can only post ten pics at a time here, which became my arbitrary reason for watching at least/most 10 movies per month. I wasn’t in much of a mood to invest in feature-lengths, but I gotta make that quota, or at least try. And no matter the mood, there’s always something fucking weird or creepy to work with it. Or against it, in the case of Safety Not Guaranteed…
SILENCE OF THE LAMBS - First viewing in quite a while, but I still have too much of it memorized to enjoy it for more than its technical prowess.
CHINATOWN - Neo noir classic. Constant intrigue and suspense while being dark, funny, fucked up.
THE SEA INSIDE - Beautifully crafted true story, Javier is just great
PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES - Can’t go wrong, really sweet
THE MUPPETS - Retains and builds on all that I love about the Muppets
TINY FURNITURE - Watch Girls instead, which is nearly the same but features better characters, plot, etc
REANIMATOR - Campy and creative, nearly Evil Dead enjoyable
CHASING SLEEP - All throughout, I’d this eerie sensation that this is exactly the kind of movie I would’ve made (including negative aspects)
THE FRIGHTENERS - Falls short of being fun, scary or interesting. Shame, I want more Ghostbuster-esque movies…
SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED - Cutesy indie movie that never comes together, sticking to an awkward premise with weak characters and no sense of itself.
