The Cinematic Highlights of February 2014

This wasn’t the best films for movie-watching that I’ve had. Due to a surprisingly huge amount of school work and other personal issues, I was only able to watch 14 films in total (10 first-timers, 4 rewatches), I guess I could have watched more films since I also watched the last eight episodes of American Horror Story: Coven, Downton Abbey: Season Four, and five episodes of the new season of House of Cards. For these same reason, I was not able to devote any time to writing my weekly mini-reviews. Even so, I liked most of the films I saw, and even the ones I didn’t like weren’t too bad. So, this time around, I’ll only do a top 5, and the usual shenanigans.

Top 5

1. The Lego Movie (Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, 2014)

2. Nebraska (Alexander Payne, 2013)

3. The Apartment (Billy Wilder, 1960)

5. Parenthood (Ron Howard, 1989)
