Here’s a list of all the movies I watched in April. It was not a great month for seeing new movies. First, I wasn’t able to get out to theaters at all; partly that was because there was nothing good playing (I was tempted by “Batman v. Superman” but couldn’t bring myself to do it after reading all the bad reviews). The best stuff I watched was Steven Soderbergh’s “Che: Part One” and “Che: Part Two,” which, gulp, were eight years ago already.
- “Comanche Station”
- “And Then There Were None”
- “Frank” Kinda hated this.
- “Ip Man”
- “Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance” Gorgeously deranged.
- “The Hidden Fortress” Finally!
- “Buchanan Rides Alone”
- “Che: Part One” Mesmerizing.
- “The Departed” Re-watched; superb.
- “Creed” Re-watched.
- “Che: Part Two” Heartbreaking.
- “Blood Simple” Magnificent.
- “The Duke of Burgundy” Well done but so weird.
- “Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior” Really holds up.
- “Mad Max: Fury Road” Re-watched.
