Last Month in Watched It: February 2018

What I Watched February 2018

Movies:

  • Darkest Hour (2017)
  • A Futile and Stupid Gesture (2018)
  • Blade Runner 2049 (2017)
  • Daddy’s Home 2 (2017)

  • Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (2017)
  • Lou (2017)

The Good:

See my review here… Blade Runner 2049

The Bad:

Daddy’s Home 2 would have to be the bad for the month. Had low expectations for this sequel but the trailer actually made me slightly hopeful. Mel Gibson and John Lithgow were great additions to the cast, but unfortunately they were poorly used and a bad script kills this comedy. Not the worst sequel but far from the best. Grade D

The Old or Surprising:

What surprised me most this month was that the Pixar’s offering for Best Animated Short wasn’t my favorite. Dear Basketball written and narrated by Kobe Bryant was fantastic. That’s not to say Lou was bad by any means, but it’s rather refreshing to see something new on top. Grade A
