Best of the Month: Nothing blew me away this month, but John Wick, Amour and The Talented Mr. Ripley earned the highest marks from me. John Wick was a nice surprise — one of the better action films of the year. Amour was heartbreaking and hard to watch at times, but I’m glad I finally got around to it (a project writeup is on its way). Finally, I noticed The Talented Mr. Ripley was leaving Netflix at the end of the month so I gave it a watch last night. It’s actually a damn good thriller, and I’m surprised it only showed up on one list at icheckmovies.com.
Worst of the Month: I didn’t exactly have high expectations for Driving Miss Daisy, but I didn’t expect it to be so… average. More on this later.
