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:

A Love Letter to LJN


LJN was a company who published video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Aside from introducing the concept of surfing gorillas to the industry, the company was mostly known for slapping together hastily-produced games that tied in with movie properties.  Due to the popularity of their licenses, every child of the NES era probably owned an LJN game at some point; many probably even begged their parents for one as if the game was goddamn Super Mario Bros. 4.  Because of the high-profile and low-quality nature of their products, LJN has become a very popular target for gaming-themed internet humorists like Seanbaby and the Angry Video Game Nerd.  The company has pretty much become the go-to reference point for crappy old-school gaming.  But I am here to make a confession:  I loved these games.

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?
