📺 Movies/TV Watched, Feb 2024

Some of the movies and TV I watched in February of 2024:

Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2024)


Two idiot spies fall in love, stubbornly refuse to communicate, then fall out of love. Funny moments. Great guest appearances. It would have rated much higher but it failed to stick the landing.

M (1931)


It’s remarkable how well-made this movie is for something from 1931. Love me some Peter Lorre.

Scream 4 (2011)


The movie completely falls apart in the third act. Emma Roberts deserved a Razzie nomination for her performance.

The Larry Sanders Show (1992–1998)


Funny, vulgar, cringe, and mighty influential. The Larry Sanders Show paved the way for shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office, and The West Wing (see: the walk-and-talk). I think it gets overlooked because it truly was before its time and none of the characters are particularly good people (which is part of its genius).

True Detective: Night Country (2024)


For a minute, I thought they might be going somewhere interesting. The more you think about the ending, the less sense it makes. Oh well.

Aliens (1986)


I think it’s a rule in Alien movies that characters have to make the dumbest decisions possible. I hope real Marines aren’t so annoying and terrible at following orders. The film fails to match the twists and iconic moments that made its prequel great. However, Sigourney Weaver is as amazing as ever.

Apocalypto (2006)


Apocalypto is a bit underrated (being overshadowed by the anti-Semitic comments of its creator). It’s not historically accurate, which is too bad, but give the film credit for its casting decisions and use of indigenous languages.
