The Year of Definitely Not Watching Any DVDs: March, 2008

I have to watch a lot of stuff so that I may eventually stop watching so much stuff. You get me? Here's what I watched in March (R = repeat):

24 Hour Party People (2002), Eastern Promises (2007), Ghostbusters II (1989) (R), The Thing (1982) (R), Superman: The Animated Series: Season 2, Episodes 1-15, 19-28 (1997-1998), Kirikou et la sorcière / Kirikou and the Sorceress (1998) (R), The Day of the Jackal (1973) (R), Superman: The Animated Series: Season 3 (1998-2000, 13 episodes), Zodiac (2007), The Hudsucker Proxy (1994), Citizen Ruth (1996), Girl, Interrupted (1999), The Black Dahlia (2006), Rome: Season 2 (2007, 10 episodes), Catch Me If You Can (2002), Lost in La Mancha (2002) (R), Insignificance (1985), The Masque of the Red Death (1964), Cast Away (2000), Saving Private Ryan (1998) (R), The Fantastic Four (1994), RoboCop (1987) (R), Fifty Pills (2006), RoboCop 2 (1990) (R), The Man from Earth (2007), From Hell (2001) (R), RoboCop 3 (1993), Closet Land (1991), Batman Returns (1992) (R), Threshold: Season 1 (2005, 13 episodes), Superman II (1980) (R), Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut (2006), Famous Studios' Superman (1942-1943, 8 episodes), Superman III (1983) (R), Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) (R), Spanking the Monkey (1994), Superman Returns (2006) (R), The Apartment (1960) (R), Tideland (2005), Pollyanna (1960) (R), 13 Tzameti (2005), Sixteen Candles (1984), Some Like It Hot (1959) (R), The Age of Innocence (1993), Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942), All the Real Girls (2003), Blade Runner: The Final Cut (1982/2007) (R), Tin Man (2007, 3 episodes), Chapter 27 (2007), The Office (US): Season 1 (2005, 6 episodes), D.E.B.S. (2004)

I was going to arrange these in order from Good to Bad, but the demarcation between Pretty Good and Pretty Bad didn't seem very clear.

Best of the month: Lots of repeats so there was plenty of stuff I liked, but nothing that really bowled me over.

Worst of the month: Maybe RoboCop 3? The Tin Man mini was pretty awful. Return to Oz is 60 times better.

That's a very good question, Matthew! I'm not exactly sure why but it might have something to do with Billy Wilder... maybe that Nancy Olson was in Sunset Boulevard. Could be something else, though.
