June in Review


The first true month of my summer break began on the first day of June, and instantly I sat down and watched many films. In the first week, I managed to watch 13 films, and began to slow down after that, but I tallied up quite a few great films this month.  I re-watched many films this time, and more than I have any month this year.  I also explored the films of Wes Anderson a little, and I can see what the fuss has been about when it comes to his films. Seeing Moonrise Kingdom was released recently, I thought I would explore his earlier films, and I think they are great! He is a talented director who definitely has a very special way of telling his stories.

  1. Impressive amount and SO many great films in there! Agree with all your 5/5's but might add Monster in there myself. Theron blew me away. One of the most powerful films I've ever seen.

  2. I always laugh when I see a negative rating of Antichrist. I can only imagine the anger the person feels and take pleasure in it. xD

  3. I just didn't like it at all....It had potential and was really well shot...just a slow flat film with a violent, but not entertaining gruesome ending.....
