It’s that time of year again, so here we go! We’ll start, as always, by comparing this year’s numbers to those of previous years:
In 2010, I watched 152 movies.
In 2011, I watched 198 movies.
In 2012, I watched 300 movies.
In 2013, I watched 368 movies.
In 2014, I watched 299 movies.
In 2015, I watched 367 movies.
In 2016, I watched 250 movies.
And in 2017, I watched – drumroll please – 206 movies! That’s my lowest number since 2011! But, I think you’ll find that this list makes up for the lack of quantity with a surprising amount of quality.
Hey, listen – just a quick tutorial before we start. The title of the movie will almost always link to the corresponding IMDB page, and the date on which I watched it will follow. In addition, when applicable I’ve added some handy links to streaming sites where the movie can be viewed. They’ll come immediately after the title and date, and will look like this: . Due to the ever-changing catalog available on these services, some of these might be inaccurate if you’re reading this far in the future. For that I apologize, but you’re probably too busy zipping around in flying cars to care all that much!
Okay, without any further ado, let’s get right to it! Here are the movies I watched in the calendar year 2017:

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:

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!
Here we go, into the second wave of issues in DC’s Flashpoint event! If you need to catch up, you can read about Flashpoint #1 here. Write-ups on #2, as well as the first issues of all the tie-ins covered in this post, can be found here.
All caught up? Great, let’s forge onward!

Okay, after this week’s books, all the flashpieces will be in flashplace, and we will be familiar with all the major flashplayers of this story. Let’s get this flashparty started!
As we ease into the penultimate week of Flashpoint‘s first act, we are unfortunately faced with the event’s weakest batch of books yet. Not that these titles (in which Lois Lane, Kid Flash, Reverse Flash and The Outsider headline) are bad or anything, but they just didn’t immediately grab me the way many of the other tie-ins have. Let’s start with the best of the bunch…
Oh god, kill me.
I’m almost all caught up with my Flashpoint backlog, which is great because I have some non-Flashpoint-related posts that I’m excited to get to. Look forward to those, but for now here are the books from last week.
