MonthWatch - April 2012.

[I'm going to keep a monthly tally of the movies I've both watched for the first time and as re-watches. I think it'll be interesting to see what all I've watched at the end of the year and how many. That being said, let's do it. Here's the next month.]


The Cabin in the Woods - Brilliant!

Shaun of the Dead - One of my all-time faves.
Hot Fuzz - Felt like following up with this the next night.
The Gamers: Dorkness Rising - Brilliant unknown, low-budget comedy.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - For V.G. Movie Article. It's alright.
Big Trouble in Little China - Thank you, Nolahn! Man, this movie is awesome.
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon - For DemPod. Amazingly fun.
Scream - For DemPod. Still good.
Ghostbusters - On Netflix Instant... couldn't pass it up.
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within - For V.G. Movie Article. Could've been better.
Scream 2 - Felt like following up Scream a week or so later. Not as good, but decent.
Resident Evil - For V.G. Movie Article. Kind of underrated in the V.G. Movie 'genre'.
Taken - I have skills, too, ya know...
Cloverfield - For DemPod. Still good. Love TJ Miller.
The Host - For DemPod. Doesn't necessarily hold up, but still good.
House of the Dead - For V.G. Movie Article. Gotta love Uwe Boll, right?
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - Awesome stuff!

Arahan - Fantastic S. Korean action comedy. Funny and a lot of fun with some outstanding action sequences.
Spanish Judges - Great psychological crime thriller. Quite unpredictable with a great Matthew Lillard performance.
City Lights - For 50/50 I love Chaplin more and more.
We Bought A Zoo - For MILF. Not too shabby.
Carnage - I guess I'm a Polanski fan.
War Horse - Sunsets: The Movie! Decent final hour... otherwise, not that great.
His Girl Friday - For 50/50. Crazy dialogue! Pretty good movie.
The Darkest Hour - For MILF. SO much wasted potential...
The Skin I Live In - Slow to start, then OMG WTF. Gonna see this again. Soon.
The Chaser - Good S. Korean thriller.
Four Rooms - What a wacky little flick.
No Mercy - Another good S. Korean thriller with a unique story... but could have done a little more.
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance - For 50/50. Gotta love its leads, even if you don't like westerns.
The Divide - For MILF. Again, so much wasted potential.
House of the Devil - Wanted to see Ti West's claim to fame before Innkeepers. Boring 70 minutes, but INSANE third act.
Almost Love - Decent S. Korean RomCom with a third act that gets really dark and unexpected. Could have been better on the whole, though.
The Innkeepers - For MILF. Great chemistry from the leads, but I wanted a bit more.
Le Samourai - Great lead character in an interesting flick.
War of the Arrows - Acclaimed S. Korean war epic... that could have been much better (good third act, though).
Severance - Interesting British horror/comedy. Could have been a wee bit better, but still fun.
11-11-11 - Oh my God... so... boring... Darren Lynn Bousman might not be the BEST director in the world, but he's certainly better than this.


Theatrical - 4
Re-Watch - 75
First Time - 84
TOTAL -163


  1. You're up on me by 2.

    I love that you watched The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. There's a lot to love in that low-budget goof.

    1. Yup. I own Dorkness Rising. I've seen it probably a hundred times. It never gets old.

    2. Hide behind the bodies of the dead bards!
