November was a weird month. Funny, too, how upon the closing of Horror Month (October), we began November with, well, about five horror movies. That shows just how addicted we are to anything remotely blood-spattered.
Looking over the month's movies, nothing there really impressed us all that much. We revisited a lot this month, and even some of the revisits left us cold. Steve had issues with his one-time beloved Fire Walk With Me, and I was shocked at the lack of emotion raised in me by my formerly uber-beloved Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Steve re-did The Shining and still didn't like it. And I watched Assassins in a lonely hotel room and forgot what it once was I liked about that one. Praise be, then, to The 40-Year-Old Virgin -- the one revisit this month that made us laugh just as much as the first time around.
So, a Top 10 list is hard for this month. But I think if I pick through the bones, I'll find some goodies:
Top 5 Good New Movies
1. Black Water
2. The Signal
3. Dead Set
Okay, so there were only THREE. Wow. And all horror movies, go figure. Well, let's shoot for a WORST list and see if we can crack five:
Top 5 Bad New Movies
1. Funny Games (worst movie of the year)
2. They're Among Us (why why why did we do this?)
3. Headspace (why why why did STEVE do this?)
4. Redacted (DePalma fails)
5. Step-Brothers (fucking hell)
Hmm, not all horror movies, at least, but definitely horrible. Here's to a much more interesting final month...
Current tally -- 460.
