This has been a okay month for me. I haven't found too many new favorites but a lot of decent movies.
This is how my ratings has been distributed in March:

Celda 211 was a great movie about a prison riot. Great story and acting and the only movie this month that entered my Top 100 list on IMDb. The prison sub-genre is one of my favorites so it's no big surprise I liked this one.
The Help was a movie about the situation of the colored population and especially the maids in the 60s America. I thought, as Emma Stone was in it, it was going to be a comedy not in my taste, but I was wrong. I obviously hadn't read too much about the plot before watching.
Time Travel is something of a favorite sub-genre for me too, so it came as no surprise that I did like Frequency. It was a really interesting story which kept me entertained until the end.
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? was a great movie. I consider it mostly to be a comedy and a drama about jealousy, although it has horror elements.
Bonnie and Clyde is one of the better bank robbing movies I have seen, and a true classic.
This months biggest dissapointment: The Maltese Falcon
I really tried to like it, but I couldn't.
This months biggest surprise: The Help
I didn't expect such a well-made and serious film.
