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:

The New 52, as Read by Non-Dorks (Part 6)

Hey, it’s this again!  The reviewers for this installment all submitted their pieces months ago, so I apologize to them for taking so long to get this up!  By now, all these books are up to their fifth issues, so any the relevance of this concept has sort of been weakened as a result of my dragassery, but I still think it’s fun to see how comix n00bz respond to these stories.  For more, be sure to check out the previous installments of this series (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5).  With no further ado, let’s get started!

It’s Not Easy Being Green

I’ve recently been reading, in trade paperback form, the classic 70’s Green Arrow/Green Lantern run by Denny O’Neil and Neal Adams.  These stories are revered for introducing relevent social issues into the world of superheroes, and rightfully so, but man have they aged poorly!  About as subtle as an after-school-special, this arc finds Oliver Queen (ultra-liberal anarchist man of the people) teaching Hal Jordan (authority-respecting space cop and naive maintainer of the status quo) about real people and their real problems, maaaaaan.  The stories that result were no doubt revolutionary in 1970, but read like ridiculous cornball clichés in 2011.  Let’s take a look at the first issue.
