June Film Roundup Part 2: Buy, Pass or Rent?

Devil (2010)
I had considered renting this from iTunes many times before as it isn't available on Lovefilm so when I saw it on the shelf at my local library, my other favourite place to rent from, I was sold.
I will admit I went into it knowing which one of the characters was the Devil as I'd read some spoiler-filled articles on it a while back but even so I absolutely loved it. Another one I'll be adding to my mental 'to buy' list for some point in the future.

The Number 23 (2007)
Another film I'd wanted to see when it came out but never got around to until now. I was disappointed in the style and plot of the film even though the concept based around the number was quite interesting. I definitely won't be watching this one again, Pass.

The Informant! (2009)
I'd been hoping to watch this for a little while after seeing the posters and trailer but unfortunately once again I was disappointed. Another pass....

The Crazies (2010)
Love, love, love this movie! This month wasn't the first time I'd seen it but the first since I purchased it. I don't know quite what it is that I like about it, although the direction and cinematography is rather lovely which I find unusual for the genre. I know quite a few people who just find it a bit too gory but if you can handle that side of it then it's pretty darn good haha.

Then She Found Me (2007)
I wish I didn't have to be so negative but I'm just going to have to say it; this is one of the most boring films I have ever seen. Like I've mentioned before I've been trying to watch a wider range of films but this one just turned out to be a waste of time. I don't think I even need to tell you I'm calling this one a pass.

I Am Number Four (2011)
Another disappointment (wow this is negative!), the trailer makes it look rather interesting however I thought it was a pretty dull watch. I'm not sure how well it did and whether they are actually making a sequel but they obviously were aiming for that with the way the storyline played out. 

I haven't included everything as I haven't had the time so I may carry a few over to the July round up.
You can find part one here.
