Archive for January, 2015
With a new year under way, I wanted to try a little something new for my blog. Along with Movie Mayhem and the continuing adventures of Write A Novel With Me, I’m going to add a new weekly (or bi-weekly in some cases) post with my thoughts on events and news items that sparked my interest — or in some cases, my ire — as well as anything exciting that is news-worthy as it relates to my life and career. I don’t know how long this will last, or if anyone will even find it interesting, but it’s worth a shot. And please, whether you agree or disagree, don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts on these items in the comments section below.
In this, the first full full week of 2015, I will discuss the drop in movie attendance, the picks for Hall of Fame induction and a couple of movie-related items.
With another year having come and gone, and awards season in full swing, it’s that time again to ruffle some feathers with my list of the best and worst movies of the year. I had the pleasure (and in some cases the displeasure) of seeing 135 movies this year, 42% of which I graded either an “A” or “A-“, which is slightly lower than last year, when 44% of the films I saw garnered that grade, but still on par with my average.
But, there can only be ten that get the honor of being great, and five that gain the dishonor of pure gutter trash. Whether you think my picks are exactly like yours, or you believe I’m completely insane, I’d love to hear your thoughts on this list as well as your own if you have one. So without further gilding the Lilly, and with no more adieu… My picks for the Best & Worst of 2014
