What I Watched in March

As you may now know, March was a difficult month for me so I did not have the time to watch as many movies as I use to. No time to read any book either, but I will for sure try to catch up in April. In the meantime, this is what I watched in March:

Presunto Culpable - An interesting documentary on Mexico's Legal System -we all it's fucked up, we just don't know how much and how that can affect each and everyone of us at some point, that's why it's important to do something and stand up for what you believe in as well as demand justice.

127 Horas
- I hate James Franco to be honest and I hated him more after the Oscars, but this was a good movie; I thought it'd be boring but they managed to make it watchable.

- A bit of a weird movie I have to admit, not bad though; it's a bit about how sometimes easy things in life are in front of our nose but we still are not able to see it and, much less, do something about it.

Elisa K
- The format was awful most of the time as some guy was narrating the story but, at the same time, the story going on was not in mute but you could hear the characters actually talking and all, which was very annoying because you either have a narrator or you have your characters talking, separately, not both at the same time! On the other hand, the story is worth seeing the movie, it's sort of a psychological thriller.

Les Poupées Russes - The sequel to "L'Auberge Espagnole", French and with Romain Duris on it; these things were enough for me to wanna watch it. In general it was just an alright movie. It's about running away from happiness even though it's freaking poking your face, because you're so busy looking for the so-called perfection you don't see something or someone that may not seem as perfect is perfection for you. Which many cases is sad but true.

LelleBelle - A Dutch movie about a girl who plays the violin and is kind of a mediocre player...until she finds something that makes her sound like a genius.

Unknown - In spite the fact that Liam Neeson is a bit old, he can still make good actions movies really. The movie is not as predictable as many other actions movies, a couple of hours you won't feel like you wasted.

Gru - My Favorite Vilain
- I know it's old now but I hadn't seen it and I'd heard it was funny and well, it is kinda funny but there's something about all kids' movies that just make me wanna sleep so I did fall asleep for a little while during this one.

Just Go With It - Classic "American" comedy where both Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler play basically the same role they always play, a bit of changes here and there, but mainly the same old rom-com stuff. The little girls who fakes the Brit accent is kinda funny though.

Kaboom - Boring! And weird! It's like it's Donny Darko inspired but they didn't quite get the hang of it and they mixed it with sex preferences issues and the classic girl and best-gay-friend relationship. Don't even waste your time.

Christopher And His Kind - I liked this movie. It's based on the novel by Christopher Isherwood of the same name and it's a true story. Situated on the 1930's, pre-war time, is a movie that easily crosses the fine line between comedy and tragedy. Widely recommended.

So, this is what I watched, some movies were disappointing but some others made up for it. Hope April brings a whole lot of new and good movies.
