The Best of March: Citizen Kane (1941) and Life of Brian (1981)

I’m excluding some of my favorite repeat viewings from this month. This was another hard month to choose because I watched almost exclusively really good movies this month. Citizen Kane surprised me by how modern it felt. The characters, the dialogue, the directing, the camerawork all felt like a modern take and it was fantastic. It is a timeless classic and will remain as such. Life of Brian was hilarious, blasphemous, the works. Plus it has a powerful lesson. Always be sure to look on the bright side of life.

The Worst of March: The Hurricane Heist (2018) and The 15:17 to Paris (2018)

Both of these movies suck and are polar opposites of each other. The Hurricane Heist should have been interesting. It is about a bank robbery during a hurricane after all. But, it isn’t. Ridiculous things happen, but the story makes no sense and there are long stretches of boring dialogue that doesn’t go anywhere with purposeless character development. The hurricane looked like someone described a hurricane to the director and then tried to make it happen. It was a mess. The 15:17 to Paris makes the list because I expect more out of Clint Eastwood. He is one of my all-time favorite actors and while his directorial outings are very hit or miss this has to rank among his worst. It is meandering, unbelievable, and pointless. The child actor’s he picked were awful. It also clearly features what a 90 year old man thinks the world is like today. It is rough.

Notes for March:

The only movie I saw this month that I didn’t write a review for was Scary Movie. I hadn’t seen Scary Movie since I was in middle school and for the most part it holds up pretty well and its opening sequence is an all-time great horror parody. See it.
