2017: Every single movie PT 1

On January 1st, 2017, I saw one of the coolest flicks I’ve seen in a long time: 'La La Land'. It made me think of all the movies I've seen and all the movies I’m ever going to see. On that day, I decided to record every single movie I watch and give each of them a star rating between 1 and 5. 1 is bad; 5 is excellent. Throughout the process, I’ve also kept record of the shows I’ve completed and the books I’ve read. Continue reading below... or you can have a blast clicking through these posters ;)

Here are the rules: Date. Movie. Rating. The date that I finished a movie, a novel, or a television show is the date that I record its rating. I’ve pulled posters for a good chunk of the movies (see above). Selected films have a one sentence blurb (see below). The best film so far is 'Dances With Wolves'. 

Cheers to the 2nd half of 2017. Happy halfway point ;)
