April was a busy month for me, but it was also a good one. I’m happy that I finally sat down to read another book, even if it was the weakest I have read from Bukowski (one of my favorite authors). I also played through a few video games, watched some great films, and even started a new TV show. Here’s the rundown:
In order of viewing: (including my ratings)
1) The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2  – 8/10
4) Spring Breakers  – 7/10
5) Evil Dead  – 8/10
6) Trance  – 7/10
10) Y tu mamá también  – 9/10
15) 42  – 7/10
16) Mud  – 8/10
Video Games Completed:
1) Tomb Raider [Xbox 360, 2013] – 8.5/10
2) Guacamelee! [PS Vita, 2013] – 8.5/10
3) Gears of War: Judgment [Xbox 360, 2013] – 7.5/10
Movie of the Month: I’m starting to notice a trend here — my 50 Movies Project has been incredibly prosperous this year, with most of my “movies of the month” being from it. This month is no exception: Y tu mamá también blew me away, and it is easily one of the highlights from this month. Other contenders were two emotional documentaries: Winnebago Man and Dear Zachary. The former was surprisingly heartwarming, while the latter was absolutely devastating. Both are stellar films.
Dud of the Month: I’m a huge Bob Dylan fan, but I had a really difficult time getting into I’m Not There. The cast was phenomenal, but the scattershot narrative was just too much. I also found 28 Weeks Later to be a very underwhelming sequel.
