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:

Sense of Right Alliance Assemble for Free Comic Book Day 2012!!

Hey it’s me, Chadd Derkins, back for a special Free Comic Book Day edition of the blog!  Last year, I walked you through my exciting Free Comic Book Day adventures and a wonderful time was had by all.  This year’s FCBD was way less eventful, but a lot more free books were snagged.  So, for the first time ever, the entire Sense of Right Alliance – Chadd Derkins, Grath Madden, and Jenny Incompetence – have assembled to tell you, faithful reader, about all the stupid garbage we spent an otherwise beautiful Saturday shoveling greedily into our backpacks.

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!

The New 52 as Read by Non-Dorks (Part 5)

As the cycle of #2 issues of the New 52 comes to an end, it is becoming pretty clear which of these books I’m going to stick with, and it’s waaay less than I estimated after reading the #1’s.  Stuff that seemed intriguing the first time around got super boring super quickly which is a shame, but allows for a much more manageable comic-reading schedule.

But while I’m looking forward to a significantly smaller percentage of the #3’s, my superteam of comix n00bz is still plowing through the #1 issues, and reporting back to you, the Sense of Right Alliance reader.  Be sure to check out prior installments (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4) as well.

The New 52, as Read by Non-Dorks (Part 4)

Hey some people reviewed some comic books!  They’re not the kind of people you’d expect to review comic books!  It’s very exciting!  If you read Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3, you know what to expect.  So yeah, just read this shit.  I’m going to play Arkham City.

The New 52, as Read by Non-Dorks (Part 2)

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.  As in Part 1 of this feature, I have tasked several non-DC fans with reading one of the “New 52” issues and reporting their thoughts.

The New 52, as Read by Non-Dorks (Part 1)

Well, Flashpoint is over and DC’s New 52 initiative is in full gear.  Since I totally dropped the ball on my Flashpoint coverage, I figured I daren’t attempt to write about these fifty-fucking-two issues, lest I expose myself as a flake even more than I already have.  My solution: Get other people to write about the books for me!
