Matthew’s Movie Mentions – Week 2 14th January

A much shorter list of films this week, mostly because the last episode included some of this week’s films (and Brooklyn Nine Nine was back on Netflix).

Groundhog Day

Still a really good film. A more critical look at it makes it more interesting, although there are some problematic elements that stand out really starkly these days. I’m looking forward to our episode on this coming out, it’s a terrific discussion that gets into the detail of the film.

The One I Love

In all honesty I started this last year, but only finished it because I was consistently annoyed at Netflix having it as something to continue watching. I’m not sure if I’m glad that I did, but the film definitely ended up as something different than I expected, but it’s not a happy film and really rambles at times.

Batman: Assault on Arkham

This is still really fun, and possibly better than the Suicide Squad movie. It was interesting watching with someone not as into the animated movies or the characters as much, it did show up how much is standard stuff that isn’t really interesting. I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good heist and/or the DC Universe.


Groundhog Day holds up well, and I’d recommend watching it ahead of the Pop Culturally Deprived episode at the end of January.
