I’m jealous of all the time some of y’all have for extensive movie watching. I honestly don’t know if I saw 10 total movies last year (new and old combined), never mind having so many favorites.

I saw Halloween in the theater. And A Quiet Place (which I found to be full of horror tropes and nothing overly interesting outside of the “sound” concept). I also watched maybe 2-3 movies on Netflix and maybe another 3-4 through other sources like Amazon. Part of it is I can’t sit still for 2-3 hours unless I’m really excited to see something, the other is life is busy. When I was younger I’d watch dozens and dozens throughout the year, but I just can’t swing that anymore.

Also, I rarely truly love a movie anymore, which dissuades me from investing so much time. There’s so much garbage to sift through to find the true gems that it never feels worth the effort.

With that all said I watched Won’t You Be My Neighbor? on my flight home last night. It was a great biography, and made me appreciate Fred Rogers more than I already did, but if it’s one of the best films of the year then that further solidifies my feeling that the vast majority of other films suck now.

Why do so many people who admit they don't watch alot of movies always like to say how terrible movies are?

If you don't feel compelled to go to the theater, or take the time to see something - that's totally fine. But it doesn't mean that the movie you didn't want to see is bad.

The search begins for the next Batman. 2021 will bring Matt Reeves' "The Batman" to screens with a new, younger Batman/Bruce Wayne. It apparently will be heavy on the detective aspects of the Dark Knight and will feature many villians.

James Gunn is also in talks to write and direct Suicide Squad 2.

Crazy how it's already been 5 years since Philip Seymour Hoffman died. Still such a damn shame.

This is a great interview from late 2012.

Iíve seen most of the buzzed-about movies this year (aside from Green Book, Vice and Roma).

I know itís not a critical darling by any means, and it certainly is not a perfect movie, but Bohemian Rhapsody was my favorite movie of the year. I genuinely enjoyed it and was moved by it, and left the film feeling something and thought about it for days later. It had a bunch of cliches, it fudged the timeline a lot to suit a traditional movie narrative structure, but damn it, I was entertained and thatís what matters.

Runners up for me this year have been The Favorite, Black Klansman, and Mission Impossible: Fallout.

I'm mildly snobbish about watching movies, and I rarely go to the theaters. I'll mostly only watch movies that have decent Rotten Tomatoes critics meters and fan votes, and seem interesting on top of that.
In somewhat backwards chronological order the movies from 2018 I enjoyed and would recommend:
What They Had
Colette
A Simple Favor
Crazy Rich Asians
Searching
Blindspotting (my favorite movie of the year)
Juliet, Naked
BlacKkKlansman (second favorite, deserves Best Picture)
Adrift
Chappaquidick
Love, Simon
Black Panther
Green Book (only movie I saw in the theater)

I didn't enjoy and wouldn't recommend:
White Boy Rick
The Death of Stalin
Hostiles

Movie Thread- Discussion, Reviews, Hype

I saw a ton of movies this past year and I’m not good at making “best of” lists, so I enjoy reading everyone else’s.

Loved this one so much. One of the very few I've teared up during/after.

I get weepy pretty easily at movies. That movie turns me into a puddle.
