I have been summarizing the movies I watched from the past year for eight years. Movies 2018 has the most movies of any of them. Partially, this resulted from watching a handful of films via YouTube playlists. (The quality was fitting the medium.) Yet Movies 2018 also has a excellent slate of trips to the cinema.
Want action? Mission: Impossible: Fallout is bone breakingly good. Want to be scared? A Quiet Place will having you wishing you could scream in terror. Want to know what was the best movie I watched in 2018? You’ll just have to read on…
The posting of Movies 2017 was planned for this time in 2018, however, my goals were too ambitious, and I forgot my focus. The annual movies of the year list is simply a way to remember and share what I watched throughout the year. And if they were any good.
Well, better late than never.
Thankfully 2017’s movies were high on ambition that succeeded. Though I would not have been so bullish after the first movie of the year.
2014 movie-wise was a year of extremes. The good movies were amazing (12 Years a Slave, The Lego Movie, Snowpiercer) and the bad ones were horrible (300: Rise of an Empire, Riddick, Peabody and Sherman). Even the ok ones tended closer to the extremes than the bland middle.
Yet amazing or horrible we must all agree Everything is Awesome!!! […]

The two organizations had already established awards for distinguished service to their organizations and the wider forensics activity, yet both organizations saw the need to recognize contributions by competitors and former competitors beyond individual events.
In the approaching 20 years these awards have existed, who has been honored, how did they receive these honors, and what can we learn about the honorees? To try and make sense of these questions I complied the data of every NFA Hall of Fame inductee and AFA-NIET All-American Individual Events Team. […]
No Apologies Advocate and I saw “Phantom of the Opera” recently. After the show, amongst discussing the darker tone of Cameron Mackintosh’s national tour, the sumptuous sets, and the crowd-pleasing chandelier, we did a little research on Andrew Lloyd Webber. Amongst the standard biographical information came this revelation: Sir Lloyd-Webber has created a sequel to Phantom entitled “Love Never Dies.” […]
2016 was a year of big-budget spectacle movie watching. I would have liked to see move thoughtful films, but moving cross-country limits your time, apparently. Nonetheless, there were some good movies and some stinkers in 2016. I recommend all on the list except the starred. […]
