Here’s every movie that I watched last month. The only one I got to see in theaters was “Southside with You,” the preposterously sweet and thoughtful imagining of Barack and Michelle Obama’s first date. It’ll bring tears to the eyes of every liberal and make steam come out of the ears of any conservative.
- “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” Exactly as bad as you’ve heard.
- “Wild Card” Totally serviceable B-movie
- “The Third Man”
- “Southside with You”
- “Tangerine” Terrifically strong and impactful.
- “The Running Man”
- “Stagecoach” When that camera zooms in on John Wayne—total movie magic.
- “The Assassin” One of the most beautiful movies in recent memory.
- “The Dark Knight Rises”
- “Stray Cat Rock: Delinquent Girl Boss” Bonkers.
- “Annie Hall”
- “Full Frontal”
- “The November Man” Hats off to Pierce Brosnan for not phoning it in, but a mess nevertheless
- “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” Rewatching confirmed it for me: it sucks.
