MonthWatch - June 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.]

Note: Wow... I hit summer time and really drop in count. This is probably the lowest count I've had all year so far, particularly in the re-watch area. But I guess I've just wrapped myself up with different projects and found myself busy. Anywho, here you go...


Prometheus - Cool, but a little too slow and with a third act that didn't really make up for the slow burn.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World - For LAMBcast. And because it's freakin' awesome.
Doom - For V.G. Movie article. It's... not good. Except for the 5-minute first person segment.
Minority Report - For DemPod. One of the best modern Sci-Fi movies out there.
Alien - In the mood after Prometheus. One of the best classic Sci-Fi movies out there.
Rashomon - For DemPod. Gotta love Kurosawa.
Silent Hill - For V.G. Movie article. One of the, if not the, best video game adaptations.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? - It was on TV while I was on vacation... and it's awesome.
Collateral - I was in the mood for a good hitman movie.
She's Out Of My League - I think it's an underrated comedy.
The Artist - Still just as great, if not a little better.

Dead Ringers - For DemPod. Jeremy Irons is the only reason to see it.
We Need To Talk About Kevin - For MILF. Didn't expect to love it as much as I did.
Much Ado About Nothing - For 50/50. Also didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.
RoboCop - It... was OK.
Gone - My memory of this movie is already gone. (buh dum, psh)
Safe House - For MILF. It is what it is... not much more. But I was OK with that.
An American Werewolf in London - For LAMBcast (that ended up being too sick for). Fun... and fantastic transformation sequence.
The Road - Such a happy film, isn't it? Still... very well made.
Richard III - For 50/50. The only one I didn't really care for of the month.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance - For MILF. Had some dull moments, but also some great moments.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows - Ditto.
Die Hard 2: Die Harder - Not as good as the original, but it has its moments, as well.
Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight - This was a lot of fun.
Demolition Man - But this one... was freakin' awesome.
Titus - For 50/50. Very weird. Are we sure this one is Shakespeare? Still entertaining, though.
The FP - For MILF. Also very weird, and the joke wears out its welcome pretty fast, but it has a couple moments here and there.
Jeff, Who Lives At Home - Fantastic!
Scotland, PA - For 50/50. Pretty inspired re-telling of Macbeth.
21 Jump Street - I actually had fun with this and didn't expect to.
Empire Records - Started off "What the heck am I watching?" But got invested in the characters and just rolled with it. I ended up really enjoying it.
