Whoa. Lots to catch up on.

50. Star Trek: Generations, D: This movie was like 2 hours but it honestly felt like 30 minutes - and not in a good way. I didn't feel like anything happened at all. Pathetic way to say goodbye to Kirk.

51. Thor Ragnarok, B+: Usual Marvel goodness. This one was surprisingly VERY funny. I thought the first 30 or so minutes could have flowed better though.

52. Raw, ???: UGH. I honestly don't know how to rate this becuase I know it'll be biased. My gf studies French and wanted me to watch a French movie for her to practice. A friend of hers told her about this movie. SO GRUESOME. SO. DAMN. GRUESOME. It's SO disturbing. It's a gory horror movie. Not like guts everywhere - just disturbing. Really disturbing. I cringed almost the whole way through. It's well-done - yeah. But I will NEVER see this movie again. NEVER. You hear me? NEVER. NOT IN A MILLION YEARS.

53. Lupin the Third vs. Detective Conan(TV Special), C: I think I needed to watch/read Conan to really get some of the jokes. I didn't really feel like it was Lupin and Conan battling wits. More just crossing paths. I thought this was going to be totally different.

54. Justice League, C: Better than Batman vs. Superman. Totally nerded out at Danny Elfman bringing back his '89 Batman theme. Worst part of the movie was the villain really.

55. Alien, A: Classic. Always good ****.

56. Aliens, A: Still awesome. Although some logic is unsound so I'll be nitpicky about that.

57. Prometheus, B: Liked it better this third time.

58. Alien Covenant, B- : Not sure about this one. Typical Alien plot but also it takes a bit to wrap your head around how exactly the xenomorphs started.

59. Predator, B: Standard B movie.

60. Monty Python and the Holy Grail, A: Haven't seen this in a long time and to be honest - I didn't find it as funny as last time. Don't get me wrong, it's witty and influential and a masterpiece. At the same time - I wasn't roaring with laughter like I did before.

61. Death Becomes Her, C+: Eh. Could have been way better. I thought this movie would be different.

62. Kong: Skull Island, B: I actually enjoyed this movie way more than I thought I would. I nabbed it during a Black Friday sale because I thought "Why not?" They're going to do King Kong vs. Godzilla and I love Godzilla no matter what so I figured I would have to watch it anyway to get filled in on this new cinematic universe.

63: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, D-: AWFUL. HOLY ****. WORST MOVIE I HAVE SEEN SO FAR THIS YEAR. GUY RITCHIE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I EXPECTED SO MUCH BETTER. THIS WAS SUCH A LETDOWN. SUCH A CHAOTIC MESS WITH OBNOXIOUS CGI. GUY RITCHIE, HOW COULD YOU BETRAY ME LIKE THIS?

64: Lupin the Third: Napoleon's Dictionary, B: Ah, good old Lupin. Enjoyed this one.

my final movies of the year:

65: Pretty Woman, A: Never saw it before. Good, classic ****.

66. Star Trek: First Contact, A: Solid Star Trek movie. The ending moved me as a fan of the show.

67. Star Trek: Insurrection, B-: Not terrible. Could have been better - and made a bit more sense.

68. Star Trek: Nemesis, B-: Same as above.

69. Star Wars: The Force Awakens, B: The more I watch it actually the more I get annoyed thinking about things.

70. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, B: I liked it. Had its ups and downs but I'm okay with it. Would watch again.

71. Get Out, A+: Woo! Great movie. Finally saw it.

72. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, B-: Surprisingly funny. Pretty cheesy at times. Especially the music. The whole thing kind of felt like a College Humor skit - in a good way.

73. What We Do in the Shadows, A: An independent film - a mockumentary about vampires living in a flat in New Zealand. My gf just had me watch it. No idea what it was beforehand. Screamingly funny!

74. Star Wars (1977), A+: I will always officially recognize this as THE Star Wars - before it was titled A New Hope. One of my favorite movies ever. Tonight for New Year's I'm getting together with my friends and we're having a Star Wars themed party, and we're going to watch the movie so that at midnight exactly the Death Star explodes. Can't wait!

Whoa, my last post in this thread was August? Dang.

Suffice it to say, I watched a buttload more movies after that, including a batch of Christmas films, Ragnarok, Last Jedi, & more.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
