Last Month in Watched It: December 2017

What I Watched December 2017

Movies:

  • The Book of Henry (2017)
  • Office Christmas Party (2016)
  • Better Watch Out (2017)
  • Logan Lucky (2017)
  • Four Christmases (2008)
  • Mother! (2017)
  • Bright (2017)
  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)
  • Call Me By Your Name (2017)

The Good:

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the movie with the too long title that somehow works perfectly. Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell deliver performances that rival their performances in Fargo and Moon. The movie is touches on several genres which for some made for a confusing tone. I personally loved it. Woody Harrelson is great as well. Grade A-

The Bad:

Bright was by far the worst movie I saw last month. The writing is horrific. It starts by building up a cool world you want to spend time in and follows that with a poorly written storyline. I heard they have a new writer for the sequel, so maybe theres hope this world will be explored more when it’s in better hands. Grade D

The Old or Surprising:

What surprised me most this month was “Mother!,” it was so far from what I expected it to be. Darren Aronofsky is normally a director I can rely on to deliver a great piece of film that will be on my top 10 of the year. The heavy handed symbolism of Mother! didn’t land with me. Maybe i need to see it again. Beautiful film to look at. Grade C-
