My Year in Movies, 2017

It’s that time of year again, so here we go!  We’ll start, as always, by comparing this year’s numbers to those of previous years:

In 2010, I watched 152 movies.
In 2011, I watched 198 movies.
In 2012, I watched 300 movies.
In 2013, I watched 368 movies.
In 2014, I watched 299 movies.
In 2015, I watched 367 movies.
In 2016, I watched 250 movies.

And in 2017, I watched – drumroll please – 206 movies!  That’s my lowest number since 2011!  But, I think you’ll find that this list makes up for the lack of quantity with a surprising amount of quality.

Hey, listen – just a quick tutorial before we start.  The title of the movie will almost always link to the corresponding IMDB page, and the date on which I watched it will follow.  In addition, when applicable I’ve added some handy links to streaming sites where the movie can be viewed.  They’ll come immediately after the title and date, and will look like this:     .  Due to the ever-changing catalog available on these services, some of these might be inaccurate if you’re reading this far in the future.  For that I apologize, but you’re probably too busy zipping around in flying cars to care all that much!

Okay, without any further ado, let’s get right to it!  Here are the movies I watched in the calendar year 2017:

My Year in Movies, 2016

Happy new year!  Guess what?  My movie count actually went down in 2016!  This is due mostly to having a busier year than usual – I spent two months traveling around the country, and in the fall I got a new job that ate up a lot of my time.  I also spent a lot of my free time playing video games!  These are all positive things, of course, but they did leave a way smaller window for watching shitty movies.

The Nintendo Resolution: My Year in Video Games, 2016


In the 2016 intro/hub page for the Nintendo Resolution, I stated pretty emphatically that there was no way I could match the 36 video games I beat in 2015.  Well, I not only matched that number, but I fucking blew it out of the water – in the calendar year of 2016, I beat 48 goddamn games.
