Okay, I am a little due to do some little film reviews from last month (like I've mentioned in my last entry) so here goes nothing. Although, the month did a had great start with certain great films I've watched throughout. :)

FUNERAL PARADE OF ROSES (dir. Toshio Matsumoto) (1969) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
This was rather unusual but amazing to start with. The film deals with transgenders in the 1960's Japan, including a couple who had quite the past. Interesting use of from avant-garde to documented-style footage and one of the most shocking endings I've ever seen, not for everyone but for serious art-house fans.

THE SWORD IN THE STONE (dir. Wolfgang Reitherman) (1963) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! (re-watch)
My #8 all-time favorite Disney film, always loved the music and the adventures of Arthur & Merlin. Both funny & magical to watch. :)

JUNKOPIA (dir. Chris Marker, John Chapman & Frank Simeone) (1981) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
Unique look at what was left ashore. Visionary, Chris Marker is a real artist (as always).

CHARLOTTE'S WEB (dir. Charles A. Nichols & Iwao Takamoto) (1973) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! (re-watch)
Another rate animated gem I've loved watching as a kid, the music was always the best part. The Sherman brothers were king!

TWO-LANE BLACKTOP (dir. Monte Hellman) (1971) - Star! Star! Star!   out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
Well made road movie, but still I wish would appreciate the art of the film. And I do love cars, for sure.

THE CRANES ARE FLYING (dir. Mikhail Kalatozov) (1957) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!
Both a war story & a love story, very stunning from start to finish. Loved it!

127 HOURS (dir. Danny Boyle) (2010) - - Star! Star! Star! Star!   out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! 
James Franco: always handsome & does great job acting. By the way, this film should have been titled JAMES FRANCO GETS STUCK INSIDE A CANYON AND TRIES TO GET OUT ALIVE. XD

RYAN'S DAUGHTER (dir. David Lean) (1970) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! 
David Lean's most underrated work: as great as his pervious films.

THE FOX AND THE HOUND (dir. Art Stevens, Ted Berman & Richard Rich) (1981) - Star! Star! Star!   out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! (re-watch)
I've never cried at this film until now. Time always changes, some stay as for others move on. I've always love little Tod.

SLEEPY HOLLOW (dir. Tim Burton) (1999) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! 
Johnny Deep & Tim Burton at their finest & darkest!

THREE COLORS: BLUE (dir. Krzysztof Kieślowski) (1993) - Star! Star! Star! Star! Star!  out of Star! Star! Star! Star! Star! (re-watch)
Beautifully made by Kieślowski & melancholically wonderful performance by Juliette Bionche. I've always enjoyed watching his great films, especially THE DECALOGUE (1988) and still need to watch WHITE (only have watched both BLUE and RED).

And now we are in February, I cannot wait to see more good films (both revisiting & new discoveries). That is all for the reviews on films I've watched in January. Some of them I would strongly recommend. :)
