March 2020’s Movie Watch List with Juicy Stats

A light month for watching movies when compared to January and February!  I know a lot of people are enjoying some free time this COVID-19 outbreak is giving them, but it has caused more stressful days than relaxing ones for me… and so it goes…

Also, I watched a few more clunkers this month than the previous two causing my average to dip below .500!  Well, the good times might have been a little sparse but at least there were some!

Baseball time!
These are the “batting stats” compiled for the FIRST TIME watches.  I give each movie a rating out of 5.  5s are home runs, 4s and 3s are hits, 2s and 1s are pop or ground outs, an NA (did not finish) is a Strike Out.  This tells me how well of a job I’m doing at picking which movies to watch.

Good Movie Average:  8/18 – .443  (Last month: .763)

Home Runs: 3
Harvey
On Golden Pond
The Platform

Strikeouts: 3
The Stunt Man – Bad movie
Bon Cop Bad Cop – I’m not bright enough for this movie.  The jokes about the nuance between the French/English languages were going over my head.
The Lords of Flatbush – snoozer

Awards:
Most underrated: On Golden Pond
Most overrated: Gladiator
Most fun: White Lightning, Gator
Most Forgettable: After The Wedding
Better than I remembered:  The Roaring Twenties
Best re-watch: Caddyshack
Most disappointing: Badge 373, The Cooler, The Last of the Mohicans
Oddest movie: War of the Roses
Cameo I totally forgot about and had almost made me squirt coffee through my nose when he popped up on the screen:  Kurt Vonnegut (Back To School)
Most surprising performance(s): Josephine Hull (Harvey), Adam Sandler, (Uncut Gems –If I grade on a curve) and Frank Beard (ZZ Top: That Little Ol’ Band from Texas).
Worst Movie: Joysticks
Best Movie: The Platform

      1. I get that. I am serviceable in French so I did get a lot of the humour. I particular liked the scene where they were in the house with a grow op in the basement and it caught fire. The very next scene, both cops are at HQ with serious munchies. Classic.
