I'm going to try to NOT dwell on the patheticness of this month's movie viewing, because it was extremely pathetic.
NINE MOVIES TOTAL. Nine movies. It would have been only five films, but on the day before the last day of the month I had some friends over for the night and we watched a few movies. That last day nearly doubled the total. THAT'S SAD.
I would blame my lack of movie watching on school, but in March I had finals and I watched a record number of films (for this year), sooooo...
Actually, the honest and truthful reason I only watched nine films in April:
It's completely and utterly 100% Sarah's fault! She bloody informed me that the new Doctor Who was on Netflix streaming and I had been meaning to check it out for a while, so I went to watch the first episode of the second season (I was REALLY only interested in the Tenth Doctor. ;-D).
I basically didn't stop watching it until I was half-way through the fourth season and suddenly freaked out because I realized I only had a few Tenth Doctor episodes left.... I'm slowing viewing those.... putting off the horrible day....
Anyway. BLAME SARAH. She did this to me. ;-D
3 new films / 9 total
My Favorite New Film:
The Bat. It wins by default (as in I only watched two other new films and they both annoyed me). ALSO: IT HAS VINCENT PRICE. That's always cool.
My Least Favorite New Film:
Duel in the Sun. Everyone was evil. Everyone died. Gregory Peck's death scene was a pretty stinkin' awesome though.
Best Movie Title:
I'm gonna go with a re-watch, just because there's not a lot to choose from otherwise: The Quiet American. It's just a loverly mysterious title. (SOME may consider it a bit of a paradox, but it's all cool! ;-D) It fits the film very well: an EXTREMELY interesting story (and I LOVE Michael Redgrave's brilliance) about Vietnam, made BEFORE the Vietnam War "officially" started.
And this quote from the unnamed American-- I always find it so perfectly thought-provoking (and TRUE):
I'm from a country that's been in existence for less than two hundred years, in a very old world. Fifty years ago, we were barely taken seriously as a nation, much less a great force for wisdom and decision. But suddenly now, a watch tick of history later, the world waits angrily for us to provide the answers it hasn't been able to find in fifty centuries.
Once again, I'm going to go with a re-watch: The Third Man. Everything about this movie is so PERFECTLY PERFECT! The cast is utter brilliance!
I don't have anything this month. Even the two movies I disliked-- had pretty awesome casts!
Best Title Song:
Also re-watch, but PAJAMA PARTY TONIIIIIIIIIGGGGHHHTTT!
