Since I’m going to start reviewing a movie a day, (or every couple of days…) I thought it would be fun to go all the way back to when I first started watching a movie a day and catalog them all here for anyone who’s interested.
And who knows, maybe this’ll inspire someone else to do the same thing.

Mini Reviews or random thoughts:
The Abominable Dr. Phibes is crazy fun.
Long Way North is a sorely underseen animated film that deserves more attention.
Thor: Ragnarok was fun but I’m getting real tired of using that word to describe Marvel films. They’re all turning into cinematic cotton candy. Delightful but cotton candy ain’t a meal.
What Happened to Monday has problems but is pretty entertaining.
Fuck Blair Witch.
I don’t normally grade documentaries but goddamn was Jim and Andy great.
Super Dark Times. See it.
You’ll either love or hate The Dark Backward. I appreciate it’s weirdness but meh.
The Blue Lagoon exists. I wonder if Brooke Shields’s obituary will read “the former child star that America really wanted to have sex with.”
Liquid Sky is a weird fucking movie.
Hugo the Hippo is also weird but enjoyably so.
Flash Gordon. I apparently had never seen this film. I had seen numerous clips over the years and just assumed I had seen it years ago. It’s a campy remake of the Wizard of Oz. And Brian Blessed is a fucking god.
