January movies

Twenty three films kicking off 2010 with style although, as I posted earlier in January, the year got off to a rough start in terms of quality films. The whole month actually is an assortment of scores in the 2 1/2 stars or below range. Nine of them. That's a lot for one month. I did watch North By Northwest for the umpteenth time thanks to a bluray disc loan from Vern. I love that movie so much. And I saw 400 Blows for at least the fifth time. That's another one I love. Two classics back to back.
