Movies Watched [November 2011]

November was an interesting month for me. It started off a little slow film-wise, but quickly picked up near the end. My girlfriend and I did another round of our annual Thanksgiving movie marathon day, this time opting for a handful of classics: The Godfather 1&2, Casablanca and Grave of the Fireflies. Someday I will watch The Godfather Part III, but we were pretty burnt out on the saga after the second one.

    Can’t wait to see Red State and MMMM. I recently saw Dancer in the Dark for the first time and am very curious to see Melancholia! All in all a pretty great film watching month by the looks of things!

      Red State was a disappointment, but MMMM is worth seeing. Melancholia is a very interesting film — I plan on writing a review for it soon. Aside from a couple duds, it was a pretty good month. Thanks for stopping by!

      I used subtitles. 🙂 They helped quite a bit.

      December should be a great month! I will be wrapping up the movie project — just 13 left, I believe.

    Ah, Sunset Boulevard…one of the great films from one of the great filmmakers Billy Wilder. I love that film!

    I haven’t seen Red State yet – looks “entertaining” based on that pic! 😉

    • Eric says:

      I fell in love with Sunset Boulevard. Such a fantastic film. After seeing that and Double Indemnity, I am eager to dig into Wilder’s catalog.

      Red State is a dud, unfortunately. Great concept, poor execution.

    Sounds like a good month. I saw Red State back in October, and I liked it. I also saw Terri and Attack the Block this month and REALLY liked them. I’m sure I’ll be talking about them when I make my year-end list.
