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. Continue reading

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:

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:

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

Hey it’s me, Chadd Derkins, back for a special Free Comic Book Day edition of the blog! Last year, I walked you through my exciting Free Comic Book Day adventures and a wonderful time was had by all. This year’s FCBD was way less eventful, but a lot more free books were snagged. So, for the first time ever, the entire Sense of Right Alliance – Chadd Derkins, Grath Madden, and Jenny Incompetence – have assembled to tell you, faithful reader, about all the stupid garbage we spent an otherwise beautiful Saturday shoveling greedily into our backpacks.

This past Saturday was Free Comic Book Day, which for my friends and me meant a whirlwind tour around New York City, lots of fun, lots of walking, and ironically, lots of money spent. Time for an inventory!

Hello, loyal Alliancers! When I wrote my list of Comics You Should Be Reading in 2011, I didn’t include any Marvel titles, quite simply because I don’t read any. It’s not that I dislike the Marvel universe, but I just never dived into it the way I did with DC. I think in my formative years, I was just way too into Batman, and also way turned off by the X-Men/Marvel Card trend that was all the rage with my age group. Anyway, the result is that besides thinking Spider-Man and Daredevil are pretty rad, I’m not extremely into Marvel, and didn’t bother exploring that stuff when I got back into comic books. So I decided to recruit my friend/roommate/fellow comic book geek Grath Madden (of Barrakuda McMurder fame) to tell you about the Marvel comics he’s currently enjoying. Here’s what he has to say:
