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.

My Year in Movies, 2015


I thought that I had watched fewer movies than usual in 2015.  I really did.  But, I didn’t.  Not at all.  Before we get to that, though, let’s first take a look back at my movie-watching stats from previous years:

2010: 152 movies
2011: 198 movies
2012: 300 movies
2013: 368 movies
2014: 299 movies

So how many movies did I watch in 2015?  I watched an embarrassing 367 MOVIES, just a single film shy of 2013’s all-time record.  When you combine that with the insane amount of video games I beat in 2015, it becomes clear that I barely left the house.  In my defense, I spent the last 1/3 of the year in my first extended period of unemployment in more than a decade, so I had a lot of free time!  I spent much of that free time watching stupid movies.

The movie’s titles (for the most part) link to their IMDB pages, and when applicable, I also provide links to streaming sites where you can watch them free and legally.  You’re welcome.

Here are the movies I watched in 2015:

My Year in Movies, 2014


I am posting this much later than usual this year, so my apologies for that.  I usually start writing these things around late September or October, but the last few months of 2014 were extremely shitty and hectic for me, so I didn’t get a chance to begin this until mid-January!  Hopefully you pieces of shit appreciate it!

My Year in Movies, 2013


Hey, remember when I used to actually write things for this blog?  Things about comic books and video games and all sorts of fun stuff?  Or hey, how about when I started slacking off, but the awesome Jenny Incompetence kept the blog going in spite of my laziness?  Perhaps 2014 will be the year where I get this shit rolling again, but in 2013 I was busy watching way, way too many movies.

Let’s run the numbers!  In 2010, I watched 152 movies.  In 2011: 198 movies.  In 2012: 300 movies.  All of those are really disturbingly high numbers, but in 2013 I upped the ante to a crazy degree, clocking in at a disgusting total of 368 fucking movies!!  For those of you unwilling or unable to do the math, that is an average of about 1.008 movies a day.  God damn it, I am so ashamed.  Read on for the full report on every movie I watched.  For your convenience, I’ve included a link to the movies which are available to stream on Netflix – sorry I didn’t do the same for Hulu or Amazon or any other services, but I don’t have them, so fuck it.  Anyway, here we go:

My Year in Movies, 2012


 In 2010, I watched 152 movies.  In 2011, I upped the ante a little bit with 198 movies.  And now, in 2012, I seem to have gone absolute apeshit, clocking in at a total of exactly 300 fucking movies!  That is an insane amount of movies, and I guess I really need to get a life or something.  Here’s how I wasted my year: Continue reading

My Year in Movies, 2011


In 2010, I watched 152 movies, and for no real reason I decided I wanted to beat that record in 2011.  I totally did, but guess what my final count was?  198.  198!!  Arghh, how frustrating is that number??  I planned to get it up to 200 in the last couple of days before New Year’s Eve, but I got busy with other things and wasn’t able to watch any movies!  But, whatever, 198 is still a hell of a lot of movies, right?  Right!  Here’s what they were:

My Year in Movies, 2010


It’s been 2011 for a little while now, and it’s probably slightly too late for a blog to still be posting 2010 retrospective bullshit, but hey it took me a long-ass time to get this written, so fuck it.  Anyway, how many movies did you guys watch in 2010?  Me, I kept a running list of every movie I saw during the course of that year, from New Year’s Day ’10 to Christmas ’10 – 152 movies in total.  Let’s take a look, shall we?

Three Cheers For Alex Kavanagh!!!


Last night I watched the movie Splice, starring the inimitable Adrian Brody.  The movie was actually really good, and I recommend checking it out.  However, what stood out for me more than anything else was Adrian Brody’s character’s fashion sense.  You know how in movies or TV shows about brilliant young scientists, they always make them wear wacky clothes to reflect their free-thinking anti-corporate attitudes?  From CSI to Jurassic Park, any time a sciencey guy in a lab appears on screen, they are sure to be decked out in a Hawaiian shirt or a vaguely punky hairdo, or some shit like that.  Well, costume designer Alex Kavanagh took this concept to dizzying heights in Splice.  She must have had a gift certificate to Spencer’s Gifts burning a hole in her pocket, because there’s really no other explanation for the shit Adrian Brody wears in this movie.
