July was #CleanMovieMonth. A huge, huge thank you to Pure Entertainment Preservation Society (PEPS) for hosting it! Please check out their wrap-up postwith a summary of all the movies they reviewed in #CleanMovieMonth!
My goal was that at least more than half of the movies I watched were in from 1934-1954. Let’s just say I didn’t do the best.
Total movies: 8
Here are my thoughts on them, and if they were in Code.
(Well, to be fair, I watched this and I thought that I was watching a Code movie, because I thought the dates were 1934-1956, instead of 1934-1954. So, I was trying!)
My first Alfred Hitchcock movie… I liked it. Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day do amazing jobs. It was nice to listen to the Oscar winning song, “Que Sera Sera”.
In Code?: There were some graphic deaths, but besides that, I think this is pretty “in-Code”.
Ah, Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland. Read my review to see what I thought of it.
*This was my only complete re-watch of the whole month. I watched because I thought, “Hey, 1934 was in Code!” Well, not the whole year. I think this one was before the Code. The mystery is great, William Powell and Myrna Loy go excellently together.
In Code?: Didn’t I just answer this? I think the Code could have improved this one just a little bit.
The Incredibles 2 (2018)Well, I didn’t mean to see this. “What? How can you go to a movie theater and not mean to see the movie?” you ask. Good question.
My mom and I were going to go see Oceans 8. We had been waiting all day for it. We get there and the theater is not playing Oceans 8, it’s playing The Incredibles 2. This was particularly annoying because I had gone to the theater earlier that week to make sure that they were going to play Oceans 8. They told me they were going to! Anyway, since we had been waiting for a movie all day, we just watched it anyway.
I really enjoyed it. I have never been a fan of The Incredibles, but this sequel was awesome.
In Code?: I would say so.
I actually really liked this. It was really funny, and it was an hour and a half well enjoyed.
In Code?: Uh, maybe? It deals with people trying to kill someone.
Read my review to see what I thought of it.
Eh. I watched this for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, and they were good. But the rest of it… eh.
In Code?: I guess, but there seemed to be too much kissing.
What did I think of it? Um… Forrest Gump is a sweetheart. Besides that… I did not like this. It won Oscars? Hh..how? Why? I just don’t get it.
In Code?: Definitely no, and I think it would be sssoooo much better if it was.
And I watched bits of:
The Phantom Menace
The Music Man
From Here to Eternity
Well, at least half of the movies I watched were in Code! Sort of. I don’t watch that many movies in the summer, and I was gone for a bit. I had fun and I really hope to do this again next year!
Please tell me any thoughts you have on these movies!
