Movies I Watched in April

Underwater! (1955)

Well this month certainly looks different! I actually watched some movies from the last two decades!! Lol. You may have already guessed it, but I’m crushing on Mel Gibson right now. I also started watching Hot in Cleveland. Betty White is a hoot and I’m enjoying the show more than I ever expected. I also burst into tears unexpectedly at the opening of 2:1. It’s on YouTube. I keep starting “new” shows instead of finishing the ones I’m nearly through with... It’s always sad to end a good show. Anyway, here’s what I watched this month:

  2. Monkey Business (1931) - Marx Brothers, Thelma Todd

  4. The Next Voice You Hear (1950) - James Whitmore & Nancy Reagan 
  5. No Way Out (1950) - Richard Widmark, Sidney Poitier, Linda Darnell
  6. Kim (1950) - Errol Flynn, Dean Stockwell, Paul Lukas
  7. Underwater! (1955) - Jane Russell, Gilbert Roland, Richard Egan

  18. *Salt (2010) - Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofer
  19. The Conspirator (2011) - James McAvoy, Robin Wright
  20. Daddy’s Home 2 (2017) - Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlburg, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena
  21. The Man Who Invented Christmas (2017) - Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer
Least Favorite Film: Sorry Robert Ryan but Captain Nemo was a little hard to get through... Kim was a little boring too but I had put off watching it too long.

Favorite Movie: I really enjoyed Baby Boom. My aunt told me about it when I was describing the plot of Bachelor Mother to her. I also FINALLY watched Love in the Afternoon, which despite the subject I quite enjoyed. Audrey can be so heartbreaking. 

What’s been keeping you going this month?

LOVE this jacket worn by Stanwyck in There’s Always Tomorrow.
