The last 10 films I've seen 

Does summer begin in March? That seems to be the case at the movies with four releases that feel like summer blockbusters. Ghost in the Shell, which I surprisingly have not seen, was a significant flop. Maybe it would have done better in the summer? Probably not. But Wolverine, King Kong and Power Rangers movies all feel like something you'd see in theaters during June or July. 

Inspired by the fun feature that Film Comment killed in its magazine, here are the last 10 films I've seen as of April 13, 2017.

Gifted - Marc Webb, 2017
Trainspotting - Danny Boyle, 1997
Going in Style - Zach Braff, 2017
Power Rangers - Dean Israelite, 2017
Kong: Skull Island - Jordan Vogt-Roberts, 2017
Logan - James Mangold, 2017
The Wrestler - Darren Aronofsky, 2008
A Cure For Wellness - Gore Verbinski, 2017
The Great Wall - Yimou Zhang, 2017

For a guy fortunate enough to get paid for writing about movies, I probably didn't do a good enough job of it in February by whiffing on The Great Wall and A Cure For Wellness. Neither was a very good movie, but both were worth writing about. Hopefully, I got better at that in March.
