April 2016

This month I only managed to watch 14 films, mainly because I watched the five seasons of Justice League, the last season of Gilmore Girls, and a few episodes of Animaniacs. I wish I could say that I spent all my remaining time watching great films, but of course it wasn’t to be. I only watched two films that I loved, two that I liked a lot, and the rest were mostly just fine (with the exception of two that were trash).

So, yeah, let’s go on with the show

Top 10

  1. Bowfinger (Frank  Oz, 1999)
  2. James White (Josh Mond, 2015)

  4. Life (Anton Corbijn, 2015)

One thought on “April 2016

  1. I didn’t think Concussion was bad. It definitely wasn’t what I was expecting, but I still found it enjoyably decent.

    Oh, and with Animaniacs, we should have sing-off competition. I’ll start with Yakko’s World.
