My August Movies Round-Up

Well, I don’t know about you guys but the month of August pretty much flew by for me (same is going for September too). I watched a lot of classic films in theaters, which was super cool, but other than that August was fairly normal, albeit a bit slow for my movie watching. I also watched my first movie through Steam! I have added a new statistic for August that I still need to go back and repopulate for the year; runtime. Now I can tell exactly how many minutes I’ve wasted enjoyed watching movies.

My goal for August was to dig into my Criterion blu-ray backlog which I didn’t really accomplish (I did get through a few though), but I’ll get to them all eventually.

My August movies watched:

  1. Gomorrah
  2. Harold and Maude
  3. Yi Yi
  4. Beasts of the Southern Wild
  5. Wages of Fear
  6. The Incredibles
  7. Sorcerer
  8. Simpsons Movie
  9. Slaughterhouse-Five
  10. Goon
  11. Indie Game: The Movie
  12. Uncle Buck
  13. The Great Outdoors
  14. Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
  15. Teddy Bear
  16. ParaNorman
  17. Jaws
  18. Jiro Dreams of Sushi
  19. A Separation
  20. High Noon
  21. The Big Lebowski

  1. You doing the 365 films per year challenge? II did it a few years back, and ended up watching some utter honk to make it.

    Any old crap on TV, as I recall.

  2. I say go for 365. Sounds like fun. This is an impressive list yet again. It just boggles my mind to read it. I do think 300 should be something grand. You can’t reach your goal without closing it out big.
