What I Watched in June 2013
- Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
- Identity Thief (2013)
- Ted (2012)
- Oz: The Great and Powerful (2013)
- The Master (2012)
- Dark Shadows (2012)
- Lost in America (1985)
- The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013)
My girlfriend and I saw Silver Linings Playbook in theaters and it was my favorite movie of the month. Full of heart, great performances, and well timed comedic relief. David O. Russell hits this masterpiece out of the park. 10/10 and a lock for my Top 10 of 2012.
Definitely saw some bad ones this month with three movies tied at 4/10 and Identity thief generously getting a 5/10. Of the three crap-boxes Dark Shadows, Oz: The Great and Powerful, and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone… I would have to say Dark Shadows was the worst. I couldn’t wait for it to end and Johnny Depp is trying so hard to be relevant, when he can be so talented in the right projects.
The Old or Surprising:
I did check out an older movie this month and it was Lost in America. Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty star in this Albert Brooks written and directed film. Have you ever dreamed of quitting your job, buying a Winnebago, and traveling across America? This is that movie and it’s so much fun. Just a classic that I will surely watch again. A solid 9/10 for me.
