  1. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe: Tilda Swinton really is the star here. The child actors aren't bad but this is 100% her movie. Planet Terror/Deathproof: I ended up watching Grindhouse. Planet Terror is definitely the better of the two films but the last 30 minutes of Deathproof almost make it worth watching. Iron Man: Starting a slow rewatch of all of the Marvel films this year, taking my time though. Iron Man feels very different from the films that came after it. It's not trying to create connective tissue like in most other films, the look and feel is different, it's just so obvious that the MCU connections came later when it became successful. Films: 8
  2. The Unicorn: It's a film about a couple trying to have a threeway. It's not bad but it slowly hits some Chasing Amy areas that I started to dislike. Beetlejuice: One of my favorites. It has some problems but from a production standpoint, it's a standout! Films: 4
  3. To be fair, that would be more exciting than three quarters of the stuff currently on WWE. As I said on Twitter yesterday, Love you Molly and your experience is important!
  4. New trailer is supposed to hit on the 6th, film is dated for April 3rd.
  5. Just doing Favorite because I don't watch enough films in a year where I feel comfortable saying "Best." 2010-Inception 2011-The Muppets 2012-The Cabin In The Woods 2013-Frozen 2014-Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2015-The Martian 2016-Hush 2017-Lady Bird 2018-Black Panther 2019-Knives Out
  6. Midnight Kiss: I've found Hulu's "Into The Dark" series has been iffy at best from the films in it that I've watched. Midnight Kiss is the first one I've enjoyed. It's a slasher film with a largely gay cast and a gay director and it really shows. It's so rare you get one gay character in a slasher who's not a stereotype, let alone a cast of them so this was nice to have gay men that sound like gay men. Devil's Pass: So I figured, hey, I watched one gay themed horror film, why not make it two. It's not terrible but it wasn't a good film. Films: 2
  7. Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension: Got bored and couldn't find anything too interesting so there this on in the background. It wasn't too bad. Films: 196 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 12 Repeats: 8 Final Count: 217 Final Thoughts: I wasn't expecting to hit 200 this year but here we are. A combination of Disney+, Halloween, and Christmas really put things over. Honestly, I'm more excited for a New Year so I can watch a movie without having to try to remember if I'd watched it yet this year.
  8. Inception: It's still one of my favorites of the last decade and it still works as a metaphor for the film-going experience. Films: 195 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 12 Repeats: 8
  9. Miracle on 34th Street: The original. One of my two favorite Christmas movies. It's just so charming and sincere in what it is. A Christmas Story: This is my go to Christmas movie for when I have other things I feel like doing. It's not bad, it just kind of is that movie that I can easily tune-out while working on stuff. Santa Claus: The Mexican Christmas film, the MST3K version. One of my favorites because the film is just so absurd, the riffs are all on point, and it just all works. The Nightmare Before Christmas: This year, its a Christmas movie. I'll decide what it is again next year. A Rocky Mountain Christmas: It's this weird Dolly Parton film from the 80s. It has orphans, Lee Majors, and a witch with big hair named Jezebel. How can I not love it? Christmas Vacation: My other favorite Christmas film. I've said a lot about it in the past. It's one of the two Christmas movies that really hit me in the feels every year (The Night Before is the other one). It speaks to this Melancholy I always have by the end of Christmas every year. Films: 194 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 12 Repeats: 8
  10. The Beautiful thing about Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 is that you can watch the film without having seen the original because the first 45 minutes is literally just a clip show of the first film.
  11. Slay Belles: It's a fairly amusing Christmas Horror Movie. It has a hick Santa, the Krampus, and some bad ass women. A Bad Moms Christmas: I enjoyed the original. This one was a little less enjoyable though the older actresses definitely did bring something interesting to the proceedings. Same Place, Next Christmas: ABC's attempt at making a Hallmark Film is alright. Far from a terrible film but still unremarkable. Beauty and The Beast: The Enchanted Christmas: It's not great but it has a few highlights in the middle of the many lowlights. Babes in Toyland: The one from the 80s is really weird. Like super extra weird. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York: Kevin has had a year to think on the fact that he could have died and two men should have died by his hands. He isn't putting up with his family's shit anymore. He commits Credit Card fraud. He's a lot more harsh in his attempts to kill The Sticky Bandits. Kevin is well on his way to becoming Jigsaw.

  12. Happy December 25th! If this day has a special meaning to you, may it be a halfway decent day! If it doesn't, may it be a halfway decent day!
  13. Cats: On one hand, it's better than I was expecting. On the other, I was expecting a a vastly ineptly made train wreck. Instead, what I got was an ineptly made train wreck. It's a bad movie with a few catchy performances but I walked away wondering, "Why the hell?" Films: 183 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  14. The Muppet Christmas Carol: On one hand, Disney+ has the home video version on the service. On the other, at least they have a widescreen version of When Love Is Gone as an extra. Anna and the Apocalypse: It's a Christmas Horror Musical. What isn't there to love? Films: 182 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  15. Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Depending on the day, I might call this the best in the series. There are just so many levels it works. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: I have thoughts. I'll put them in the thread later. Suffice to say, it's not my favorite Star Wars. It's not my least favorite. Films: 180 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  16. Star Wars: Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith: It's honestly not bad. Is it better 2/3rds of the original trilogy? No but I still had Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Fairly decent. Abrams is Abrams more than a few times but the new cast is compelling as fuck! Films: 178 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  17. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2: Mostly just had it on because I was waiting for other people to show up for D&D. The 12 Dates of Christmas: It's a cute Made-For-TV Christmas movie. It's a Groundhog Day loop film with a pretty set time frame. Not bad. It makes sense that this was one of the only ABC Family movies that came to Disney+. The Night Before: Definitely one of my favorite Christmas films of the last few years. As a person who eschews Christmas with other people, who fully subscribes to chosen family, it definitely speaks to me. Home Alone: I grew up with it. Its far from a perfect film but it's one that I return to every year because it's tradition. Films: 176 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  18. Goat: It's a film about toxic masculinity and the Greek Fraternity system. It's a film. Not sure if I ever started to enjoy it at any point. Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2: So, the first half is all recap of the original film but the second half is pure hammy hold! The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: There's a lot more world building but it suffers from existing as set-up for the next film. Still, it has it's merits. Films: 172 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  19. Bridesmaids, The Skeleton Twins (She actually got a Critics' Choice Nomination), Ghostbusters.
  20. Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny: I watched the Rifftrax Live version which has a Jack and the Beanstalk film in the middle instead of Thumbellina. It's just as nonsensical as the other version and somehow both better and worse. Star Wars: Episode 2: Attack of the Clones: It's two movies. One is about a young woman who is slowly worn down by a man who has violent tendencies and has basically spent years obsessing over her. The other part is Obi-Wan Kenobi: Space Detective. The Latter is a much better film that I hope is what we get from the Disney+ film. The Black Hole: Huh. It's to be commended for being so out there but what we have is a Disney film from the late 70s that is trying to be both Star Trek, 2001, and Buck Rogers with some goofy robot stuff. Visually, it's interesting enough. Films: 169 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 11 Repeats: 8
  21. The Sword in the Stone: I remember thinking on this one fondly when I was a kid. There are moments I enjoy (The Wizard Duel is a terrific sequence) but as far as climaxes go, the film doesn't really have one. Still, it's not bad. Return to Oz: Premium grade nightmare fuel. I liked it when I was a kid, I still like it but Jesus Fuck is this full of scenes that still creep me out. Films: 167 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 10 Repeats: 8
  22. The Hunger Games: It's a good film and Jennifer Lawrence shows off why she would become a star. There are times that the shaky cam just fails the movie though. Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace: There are elements that work but there are just as many that don't. In the end, it's an okay film but pales in comparison to the originals. Thor: It's okay but compared to the Thor we would even have a movie later in The Avengers, he's just so humorless. The Dark Crystal: A friend wanted to watch it. I'm still not a big fan but, ehh. The Babysitter: It's a gory horror comedy that has very few lulls. I had fun! Films: 165 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 10 Repeats: 8
  23. Space Mutiny, I Accuse My Parents, Werewolf, Cave Dwellers, Laserblast, Mitchell: I was watching the MST3k Turkey Day Marathon yesterday. It was a good use of the day and my first time doing a Turkey Day marathon since I got to spend the holiday alone. Films: 162 Documentary: 1 MST3K/Rifftrax Assisted: 10 Repeats: 6
  24. The Reluctant Dragon: It's billed as being an animated film about a dragon and is, instead, a film about how cartoons are made. It also has a couple of unfortinate moments but it's okay. Nothing special. Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit: The rare sequel that is better than the original. It's also a very different film than the original. As is, I love it and I haven't watched it on Disney+ yet so, here we are! 101 Dalmatians: Good stuff: Most of the human actors are great, especially Glenn Close who is a hoot! Bad stuff: The dogs.
