January Releases That Don't Suck

By Daniel Carlson | Seriously Random Lists | January 2, 2013 | Comments ()


The month is usually a dumping ground for movies with smaller budgets and limited potential (last year's The Devil Inside is a perfect example), but every now and then, something inexplicably good, or at least not terrible, slips through the cracks. Not a lot, but just enough, and just infrequently enough, to keep things interesting. Who knows if this January will be worth it (though I've got my fingers crossed for Gangster Squad), or whether we'll forget the first month of 2013 the minute we hit February. While we wait, though, here are some January releases from years past that are worth your time.
