Best of the Month: The Last of Us is the best piece of media I consumed last month, hands down. It is a monumental video game, the likes of which we haven’t seen before. As for movies, Before Midnight has quickly become my favorite of the year so far. Three Colors: Blue and Rififi were both excellent additions to my project.

Worst of the Month: Mama and V/H/S are both terrible horror movies, with the former being the slightly worse of the two. I’ll likely be sharing mini-reviews of them sometime soon.

      Isn’t Hotline Miami nuts? It’s too addictive… there were a few nights last week where I told myself I would just play for a few minutes then ended up getting sucked in for a couple hours. Now I’m going back to pick up the puzzle pieces and find more secrets. Such a great game.

    Hi, Eric:

    Excellent choice with ‘Rififi’! One of the best quiet heist films ever made.

    ‘The Bling Ring’ intrigues if only to discover who is dumber, yet more content. The spoiled rotten spawn of L.A. or those who post photos of their wealth on social media, yet have no security system in place?

    Has the makings of some scathing social and cultural satire!

    Oh, yeah. And Emma Watson.

    Kudos also, for ‘Red’, ‘White’ and ‘Blue’!

      Hi Jack,

      Rififi was a VERY nice surprise. I had a feeling I would enjoy it, but I wasn’t expecting it to blow me away. The actual heist is epic. Will be posting my thoughts on that soon.

      The Bling Ring is worth a look for the exact points you mention. A sad reminder of what our society has come to these days.

    Massive list here, Eric! Really looking forward to seeing Before Midnight. Feel like I need to see the previous two again just for kicks before seeing the latest.
