May 2015 in Film

June has arrived! There’s a lot to look forward to this month — new album releases from Leon Bridges, Tori Kelly, and Kacey Musgraves (all on June 23!)… the likely arrival of season four of Hell on Wheels to Netflix (which I can’t wait to rewatch in anticipation of season 5)… and, hopefully, a lot of great film discoveries. But before any of that can be enjoyed, let’s take a look at what I watched in May!

New-to-me viewings: 15

Re-watches: 1

Total for May: 16

Total for 2015, so far: 134

This was a super light viewing month for me. I ended up being much busier than expected, and when I did have free time which could have been spent watching movies, I was kind of in a viewing slump. Things are settling down now, so hopefully June will be a better-looking month!

The new-to-me list:

  • Doctor, You’ve Got to Be Kidding! (1967)
  • North Korean Motorcycle Diaries (2013)
  • Falling Leaves (1912)
  • Housebound (2014)
  • The Shock (1923)
  • Without Reservations (1946)
  • Woman in Gold (2015)
  • Hot Pursuit (2015)
  • Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)
  • Mother is a Freshman (1949)
  • Claudia and David (1946)
  • ExTerminators (2009)
  • La paura (1954)
  • Far from the Madding Crowd (2015)
  • Terror in the Haunted House (1958)

In case you’re curious, the single film I re-watched this month was Arsenic and Old Lace.

You may notice a new addition to this section: the word “Plus” behind “Hulu.” After hearing that Hulu renewed one of my favorite TV shows, The Mindy Project, after it was cancelled by Fox, I decided to sign up for a Plus subscription. The nice collection of movies available (including lots of Criterion releases) doesn’t hurt!
