The Top 10 Films of 2015

Seeing as how we are two months into 2016 (which has already seen the release of one stupendously great Coen brothers film), I’ll try to work through the backstory quickly so we can get to the main event. I saw 42 of the films that 2015 had to offer and overall I didn’t think it was an incredibly great year. Of course there were films that I missed (chief among them Anomalisa, Room, Bridge of Spies, 99 Homes, and 45 Years) and maybe they will shift my opinion by the time I get around to them in the future. Yet even amongst a general feeling of large view mediocrity, there were several films that I loved in 2015. These were the bright spots:

My Most Anticipated Films of 2012

January 22, 2012

Now that 2011 is over and I’ve posted my list of the top films of the year, it is time to look ahead to some of the most exciting films of 2012.  Not surprisingly, I didn’t care about any of the films released in the first two weekends of the year, but I am looking forward to watching a film that was released this weekend.  As a result, let’s take a look at 2012 before the theaters become too crowded to do so.  My most anticipated films of the year list and comments follow after the jump.

The Top 10 Films of 2011

January 11, 2012

Okay, so it is already the beginning of 2012, but I took a few extra weeks to compile my top 10 films of 2011 list because I really wasn’t sure about the order of the bottom half of my list and I really wanted a chance to see Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy before I posted the list.  General ramblings and my list follow after the jump.

Film Reviews: “Contagion”, “Drive”, and “Moneyball”

October 12, 2011

August 30, 2011

Welcome back everyone!  I am sorry that I have been so scarce this summer, both on this blog and in person.  My summer has run the gamut and it hasn’t felt much like a summer.  For an explanation of what that means, go ahead and follow me after the jump.

My Summer Break

September 24, 2010

I guess this post is actually about my summer break plus the first 5 weeks of the new semester, but some schools are just starting their school year and with the beginning of the fall TV season, it seems appropriate to look back at my summer here in Pullman.  Follow my crazy (aka boring) adventures after the jump.
