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

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:

So I assume we all watched The Walking Dead, right? Holy shit. I have to assume that the next items on Frank Darabont’s agenda are to sleep with Robert Kirkman’s wife and steal his fucking car.
Well my plan to write a Halloween-themed entry every day in October really worked out, huh? Lesson learned: Don’t make stupid plans you know you won’t keep. I spent most of the month reading awesome comic books that had nothing to do with horror, so I’ll probably start writing about some of those pretty soon. Sorry about the false promise; it won’t happen again!
But it’s fucking Halloween! I will be watching fun horror movies all day and then it’s time for The Walking Dead. Have fun, and Happy Halloween!!
I used to love Garth Ennis.
Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash – The Nightmare Warriors is a sequel to the comic book Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash, which is a sequel to the film Freddy vs. Jason, which is a crossover sequel to both the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street film franchises. Whew. To tell you the truth, I really only wrote about the first Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash comic book so I could write about its sequel, which is chock full of awesome fan service to people who are into the original Jason and Freddy franchises. It’s also one of those stories where the writers ultimately just say “fuck it” and go completely outlandishly nuts. I like those kinds of stories.
I attended the New York Comic Con yesterday, and now I’m so tired I feel like the walking dead. Hopefully that’s enough to justify (a) the ridiculous pun in this post’s title, and (b) a break from the Halloween-themed posts, which you might have noticed I haven’t been keeping up with as much as I planned to anyway.
I am one of those people who actually loved the movie Freddy vs. Jason. I have distinct memories of drawing Freddy vs. Jason comics as a kid, and staging battles on the day camp playground (I was always Freddy, of course). I waited my entire life for that movie, and I wasn’t disappointed when it finally became a reality. While I thought it definitely leaned more towards Nightmare than Friday, it was a pretty good mash-up of both franchises, with all the classic elements that made them both great. Plus, Jason’s rampage at the cornfield rave was just fucking stellar, wasn’t it? Yeah it was.
