February 2009 films

February 2009 has been a bit less busy film-wise than last month, but I've still managed to make a number of visits to the cinema. Apart from anything else, I needed to get in as many of those awards films as possible to see if I agreed with the choices come BAFTA and Oscar nights.

That's not to say I haven't managed a few films on TV, when I needed a rest! I'm still failing in my attempt to watch older films though, as all of the films I've seen this month were released post 2001.

This months films include:
  • Revolutionary Road (2008)
  • My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006)
  • Scoop (2006)
  • Surviving Christmas (2004)
  • The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
  • Dungeons and Dragons (2000)
  • Wicker Park (2004)
  • Thir13een Ghosts (2001)
The clear winner of best film here is Revolutionary Road, being the only film this month that scored 5. Whether or not it beats Howl's Moving Castle (last month's winner) is a harder decision to make...

The loser here is pretty clear too. My Super Ex-Girlfriend is the only film to score 1 out of 5, and it deserves no more - if that. I'm not sure it surpasses As You Like It in it's awfulness though - at least I stayed awake for this one...

Film of the Month: Revolutionary Road
Film not to waste your time on: My Super Ex-Girlfriend

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
