Here are my favourite new-to-me films from last month:
Knowing close to nothing going in, the plot alone was an exciting surprise that provided a solid structure to this thrilling blockbuster. Godzilla kept me on the edge of my seat for two hours of imposing cinematography, grand catastrophes, and superb acting from everyone involved.
Though not mind-blowing, I thoroughly enjoyed it – especially the works of Law and Mara. It has an eerie atmosphere that I find attractive, and enough twists to prevent my mind from stalling; but Side Effects is not as intense as I expected it to be, and ultimately that prevented it from becoming a favourite.
