2014 in Review + Five years of movie-tracking!

Every year that I’ve blogged, I’ve done an end-of-the-year wrap-up with some stats regarding my viewing habits.* (See: 2012 | 2013) This year, I’ll be doing the same, with an added bonus! I was reminded, after archiving my “Watched in 2014” list on Listography, that 2014 was my FIFTH YEAR of tracking my viewing. So, in addition to the usual stats, I’ll be doing a … Continue reading 2014 in Review + Five years of movie-tracking!

A new year has begun, which means it’s time to wrap up December 2014’s viewing!

October 2014 in film + collection update

Helloooo, November! I’d like to begin this post by thanking all of you, the readers. TMP had over 10,000 views in October, the highest month of readership in the history of this ol’ blog, and pretty impressive considering my first month of blogging (January 2012) garnered a whopping 34 views. I am continuously baffled by the amount of eyeballs that are reading my reviews now … Continue reading October 2014 in film + collection update

Films in 2014: Modern movies in August

Couples Retreat (2009) – I confess, I only recorded this film because I liked the opening credits, which I caught while channel-surfing. The rest of the film doesn’t live up to that sequence of archival footage, but it isn’t as terrible as, say, Grown Ups 2 (one of TMP’s few 0/5-rated films). The cast is quite likable. Expendables 3 (2014) – Bam bam, boom boom, … Continue reading Films in 2014: Modern movies in August

August 2014 in film + small DVD collection update

Welcome to the wrap-up of the past month in movie-watching! August was a little bit of a nutty month, as it usually is. I traveled, started a new semester of grad school, and tried my best to pack in a bunch of films in between, before the time came for coursework to take over my life once again. Let’s take a look, shall we? New-to-me … Continue reading August 2014 in film + small DVD collection update

Films in 2014: Modern movies in May

Welcome to this month’s installment of Modern Movies, where I give brief reviews of the post-1970 films that aren’t getting full reviews. Strangely, all of this month’s Modern Movies begin with the letter “B.” Blended (2014) – This film is a MAJOR step up from Adam Sandler’s recent work. It’s cheesy and goes for the obvious laughs, but it’s a step in the right direction … Continue reading Films in 2014: Modern movies in May
