September's What I Watched List

what i watched 
I love a good film and it's been a while since I completed a round up post of What I Watched so I figured it was time to pull my finger out and write one. Hopefully it will be a monthly thing but I know what I'm like so no promises.

Sausage Party 3/5
A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence
Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera

Don't be fooled by the cutsie animation, this film is definitely definitely not for children. Even I was a bit shocked by the some of the content and I don't shock easily, trust me. I found the first half hilarious but by the second all I could think was seriously, what the eff is going on.

Suffragette 5/5
The foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State.
Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Marie Duff, Meryl Streep.

Watching this film made me realise how far feminism and women's rights have come in the last 100 years but sadly, there is still room for improvement. Suffragette has some fantastic actresses in the lead roles who do a great job of playing these feminist icons who paved the way for women today.

Imperium 2/5
Idealistic FBI agent Nate Foster goes undercover to take down a radical white supremacy terrorist group.
Daniel Radcliffe, Toni Colette.

Urgh, I wanted to like this movie so much but it was boring especially the second half. Radcliffe is okay in it and obviously Collette can do no wrong but it just never got going. I was expecting some violence or action and there was hardly any. Boo.

Welcome to Me (3/5)
When Alice Klieg wins the Mega-Millions lottery, she immediately quits her psychiatric meds and buys her own talk show.
Kristen Wiig, Wes Bently, Linda Cardellini, James Marden.

Welcome to Me is an interesting film and I'd just like to admit that I actually only watched the first hour. Kristen Wiig is great as Alice and Hollywood talking about mental health is a good thing (I guess) but all I could think the whole way through is why is noone telling her straight? I'll have to watch the end before I give my final judgement.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (4/5)
Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
Zac Efron, Adam Devine, Aubrey Plaza, Anna Kendrick.

If you don't like goofy, stupid comedies (i.e anything with Seth Rogen and co in), then you probably won't like this film. I happen to love goofy, stupid comedies so this was right up my street humour wise but I can see why some people would think it lacks in story and has unlikable characters.

And we are done! Do you have any recommendations for movies to watch in October?
