Movies Watched – Wrapping up 2015

Movies watched

2014 was the first year I started tracing all the movies I watched and television shows I had seen. This will be my first year blogging about it. I almost doubled my movie viewing last year. This might have something to do with why my book reading was down (to be honest that’s probably the fault of television shows. You’ll see in the next post…)

In preparation for the new Star Wars movie I also rewatched the first six. Instead of doing this as a solitary pursuit though, I invited friends over to view the films with me every Sunday leading up to the release of Force Awakens. This turned out to be a great idea and it seems everyone had a lot of fun at these viewings. I might make this a regular event at my house.

Out of this list the movies that stand out the most are The Babadook, Inside Out, and the Force Awakens all for entirely different reasons. The first is a fantastic commentary on being a parent presented as a smart horror film, the second is a beautiful reminder of the wonder of childhood and how much of that is lost as we age, and the last was just a really fun, space romp with characters I care about.

With that here is the list of movies I watched in 2015:

Would rather be out swimming, running, or camping. Works in state government. Spent a youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
