February is the shortest month of the year, but I still somehow mange to watch a couple of movies before the end of February. Four re-watches aka movies that I seen before, and three movies that I have never seen before this month. Here are those seven movies:
Before Sunrise (re-watch)
Before Sunset (re-watch)
Before Midnight (re-watch)
I re-watched my favorite movie trilogy this month. No, not The Godfather Trilogy, The Before trilogy. My excuse was that it’s February which means Valentine’s Day was upon me so why not watch just the most romantic movie trilogy ever? But, really it was just an excuse to watch these three masterpieces. Seriously these films are so special to me. They are the most honest yet down to earth romance trilogy you will ever see. If you have never seen this trilogy before, please do yourself a favor and watch them. These single handed saved the romance genre. I don’t think of myself as a romantic, but you don’t have to be to find something special about these movies. I think of this trilogy as a nice big warm hug everyone needs one of those and lucky for you and I, these movies will always be there when we need them. So please once again do something good for yourself and watch this entire trilogy and enjoy seeing two amazing characters (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy play them to perfection) fall in love with each other and everything that comes after falling in love.
Need For Speed
Pretty random right? Go from a romance trilogy to watching an critic panned action flick. There’s rhyme of reason here, it was on television and I had a few hours to spare so why not? I actually enjoyed it. I never played the games the movie is based off of so I had no expectations for the movie. Sure it’s way longer than it has any right to be, but it’s mindless fun kinda like the Fast & Furious movies which I sometimes watch when they’re randomly on television. Also the cast is great Aaron Paul obviously carries much of the movie, I wouldn’t had been as interested in the movie if he wasn’t the main lead, but the supporting cast is also pretty good. Interested in fun action movie that doesn’t require a lot of thought, Need For Speed is exactly what you’re looking for.
Wait Until Dark
I love Audrey Hepburn. I can watch Audrey Hepburn in anything. I had heard great things about Wait Until Dark, so when I saw it was playing on televiosn I had to watch it. It’s quite good and I got to watch it at night which only added to the expereince of watching the movie. I know a lot people don’t like watching older movies, either because they think they’re boring and just not all that interesting. I know this because I use to be one of those people, but I seen the errors of my ways. Wait Until Dark was a great horror/thriller movie for 1967, and is a great horror/thriller for 2019. So, if you’re looking for a great horror to watch, consider Wait Until Dark, I promise you won’t regert it.
Crazy, Stupid, Love (re-watch)
If you haven’t seen Crazy, Stupid, Love yet what are you doing with your life? Like seriously? This movie is just the perfect movie to watch when you in need of something funny to watch. I seen this movie countless times and it never gets old, there’s always something new to find and laugh at. The all star cast is just as brillant as the movie itself. I would agrue they’re what make the movie. Sure the script is great and the movie probably would still work with a entire new all star cast. But everything that happens in movie is made just better the actors who transform into this goofy cast if characters. I’m not any other set of actors could have transform into these characters and make them feel as geninue and real as the orinigal cast does. Crazy, Stupid, Love is the perfect romantic comedy.
I know, I know, I’m just now watching Clue? Whatever, I’m like over two decades behind this cult classic of a movie, but I’m here now and that’s all that matters. Clue is my type of comedy, I love screwball comedies. They’re probably my favorite type of comedy, either them or black comedies it’s a real tossup. Pretty much all the humor lands for me and the thriller aspect isn’t lacking either. Clue is another movie who is made by its cast, they’re the glue that holds the movie together and somehow they make all the humor in the movie land at least for me anyways. Clue is just a blast to watch, a movie where both the humor and mystery are as equally important and integral to the film. Who knew a movie based on a board game could be so funny, better yet so good?
