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

August is done. Just four months left and I probably have enough films to cut into at least March. So how was August? Better than July’s focus on scifi and fantasy. It was a little rough but I ended up watching a lot of really cool films. Also-Westerns aren’t that bad. Thanks Uncle Mike. So here is the links and stats and rankings for August. Next month mostly crime, noir and thrillers. Plus some Unspooled catch up (if needed), It champter 2, and maybe I’ll throw in some comedies.

Top 10 for August
1. Redline*
2. Fury
3. Vivacious Lady
4. Maltese Falcon*
5. Manchurian Candidate
6. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
7. Ready Or Not
8. Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus
9. One, Two, Three
