February 2016

lz9kfuxThis month I only watched 11 films. I finished watching the Coen’s filmography up to my rewatch of Inside Llewyn Davis. Sadly I was not able to catch Hail, Caesar! Because it left the local theaters in less than two weeks. Other than that I caught up with some of my most anticipated films of 2015, and Pokémon 2000, which had eluded me since childhood.

This month I’ll only list the five films worthy of mentioning. I’ll also do the superlatives even though there weren’t a lot of them.

Top Five

  1. Creed (Ryan Coogler, 2015)
  2. The Prophet (Roger Albers, et. al, 2015)
  3. Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg, 2015)
  4. The Secret Garden (Agnieszka Holland, 1993)
  5. The Adventures of Prince Ahmed (Lotte Reiniger, 1926)
