Best of the Month: While I saw many great films last month (many of which were project movies), there were two new watches that stood out the most: The Past and The Iron Giant. The Past is the latest film from A Separation director, Asghar Farhadi, and I found it to be even better than his Oscar-winning film. The Iron Giant surprised me with how much I enjoyed it, and I’ll have a full write-up on that this week. I also had a blast playing Assassin’s Creed IV. It has its fair share of issues — including an over-reliance on trailing missions — but being able to explore and sail the seas as a pirate more than made up for any shortcomings.
Worst of the Month: I checked out the indie horror flick, Contracted, based on some positive reviews, but it was just an awful film. Ludicrous character behavior, amateur acting, terrible script… a shame really, since it could have been an interesting spin on the body horror subgenre.
How about you? What was the best film you saw last month?
