Movies Watched in April 2012

  1. Dr. Seuss' The Lorax
  2. Young Adult
  3. Parks and Recreation
  4. X-Men: First Class
  5. Monte Carlo
  6. javascript:void(0);
  7. Martha Marcy May Marlene
  8. The Lucky One
This month, I got my money's worth out of Netflix. I caught Young Adult and Martha Marcy May Marlene on DVD. I watched Parks and Recreation on Instant Play. I recorded X-Men and Monty Carlo off of cable (though Netflix also sent me X-Men the same day I watched it because of poor queue management on my part). Then, due to a vodka-induced haze, I agreed to see The Lucky One in the theater. I really liked Martha Marcy May Marlene. I thought the suspense was subtle but well done and it stayed with me though I can see how a more traditional moviegoer would be frustrated with the ending. Otherwise, a moderate month - no stand outs but no giant wastes of time.  Oh, if I happen to watch more before Monday, the official end of the month, I'll come back and edit (for instance, I started watching Take Me Home Tonight but never finished and am expecting a new DVD in the mail but not sure what it will be).
