31 Days of Film in May-Links, Rankings & Stats

Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5

I’m writing this ahead of me flying out to Texas (the 29th) so I still have two films to go. So what can I say about May? Love me some Alfred Hitchcock. Revisited some movies, saw some new ones, and now want to watch even more. So expect a Hitchcock film (or two) every month at least. With the the exception of August (scifi/fantasy) and October (Mostly horror, some thrillers). Outside of that, saw many other cool movies and most the bad films were t least 2 star affairs. Except for one, which will be listed below. Looking ahead, June is another mix month. Though I will watch a few classic comedies I’ve avoided and will also be watching my Frankenstein collection from Universal. I’ll still be in Texas for a few days and back on the 5th. Got 12 films with me I’ll be picking from between 5/29-6/5.

Yes-I know most of my top 10 are rewatches… But to be fair, four of those I’d only seen once before and the others only a few times and not in years.
