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:

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. Continue reading

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

Hey, the New 52 #2 issues are out today! Time flies when you’re recreating the universe, but here at the Sense of Right Alliance, we are still examining the premiere issues through the eyes of non-DC fans. If you haven’t already, please also check out Part 1 and Part 2 of this feature.
Also, check out that rad new banner, a joint effort between myself, the lovely Carla Monoxide, and I guess Cliff Chiang ought to get some credit too. I love it; I just wish I could figure out how to get rid of those stupid black borders!
Speaking of stupid things, here’s some shit about comix:
Well, DC’s month of new #1 issues is officially over, but fear not! Here at the Sense of Right Alliance, new readers continue to dive headfirst into the blinding depths of the new DCU.

Look at it. LOOK AT IT. We are about to go down a dark road, my friends, but it’s a road that’s been tread many times before. There is no shortage on the internet of Widening Gyre shit-talk. But there can never be enough. There must never be enough.
