Here's every film I saw in February. My favourites included 50/50 (with the adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and Wanderlust (a pleasant surprise despite starring Jennifer Aniston), with the standout being Silver Linings Playbook, which we were lucky enough to see in Gold Class whilst sipping Chivas Regal whisky after I won a particularly fantastic competition!
50/50 - Making a heartfelt comedy about cancer is quite an accomplishment. Emotional, funny, brilliant performances. Bring tissues!
SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK: Bradley Cooper gives an impressive performance in this enthralling dramedy about mental illness, however it was Jennifer Lawrence who won an Oscar. I loved it and can't wait to see it again!
MAGIC MIKE - This didn't really do much for me. I was expecting more given the titillating subject matter!
TAKE THIS WALTZ - independent relationship drama, featuring an outstanding performance from the talented Michelle Williams. Seth Rogen is wonderful in a dramatic role. It's a bit depressing, and really left an impact on me.
HARD CANDY - Ellen Page is brilliant as Hayley, the 14 year old girl serving up revenge in a twisted way. Hard to watch, but worth it.
HIT & RUN - Real-life couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard star in this entertaining, fast-paced action/car chase comedy that's ridiculous, over the top and a lot of fun. A guilty pleasure.
WANDERLUST - so much better than the flop I was expecting. Consistently funny, Paul Rudd shows what a great comedic actor he is. Jennifer Aniston's not as annoying as you would expect.
THE PROPOSAL - Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds romcom that's completely predictable. I basically spent the whole movie marvelling at Sandra's amazing hair.
COSMOPOLIS - annoying, pretentious, non-sensical dialogue-driven mindfuck that only becomes watchable when Paul Giamatti appears in the last half hour. And this is from a diehard Robert Pattinson fan!
BERNIE - Jack Black is wonderful in this intriguing real-life story. Hubby said this movie reminds him of me: a lot of talking, yet takes forever to get to the point. Ha!
ATTACK THE BLOCK - blah, not really my cup of tea. Funnily enough, I was BLOCKED by Nick Frost (he's in this movie) after he thought I ATTACKED him on Twitter. hehe.
SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD - poignant, engaging and kind of depressing, as you'd expect given the apocalyptic theme. Steve Carell is so likeable. Seriously.
MOONRISE KINGDOM - quirky and endearing romantic comedy about two enamoured 12 year olds who run away together, sparking a massive search. I quite enjoyed this eccentric tale, despite sometimes feeling it was weird just for the sake of being weird. Props for originality, though!
What's the best (or worst!) movie you saw last month?
