This far I feel like it’s been a good year of movie watching for me. There have been a few 5 star films in there and very few 1 star movies. Part of this is that I can’t be bothered with watching a movie I know is going to be terrible but another part is appreciating the things about a movie even if it fails.
Here are some posters I’d like to own one day.

  2. Very cool idea of seeing all these older flicks.

    I watch about 200-300 movies a year, but most of them are within the past decade.
