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, 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:

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.
