This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed why January films aren’t always as bad as you think. Usually January, and for good reason, gets a pretty negative since the Studios usually use it as a dumping ground for their crap projects or comedies they don’t care as much about. However, sometimes there are those early in they year movies that surprise you and are nice gems that help relieve the rest of the month. And we happened to find a few that are more than serviceable for this list. Perhaps some of these are predictable but they are still deserving to be here.
What January films of recent memory would make your list? Here are the one’s that made our list:
1) The Grey
3) Lone Survivor
2) The Grey/Taken
3) From Dusk Till Dawn
1) Pan’s Labyrinth
2) Million Dollar Baby
3) City of God
Honorable Mentions (Combined)
Book of Eli, Fallen, Varsity Blues
Hopefully you guys enjoyed our lists and if you agree or disagree with us, let us know. There are some good surprises in January and if you built your list like Matt’s, then you will for sure have plenty to talk about. Leave a comment in the comment section or email us at email@example.com.
