This Year for Sure! 2016 Edition

Cinemonster has become my Jiminy Cricket for movie-watching. I followed his lead in my list for 2015. Then, it's not even Christmas, and he's posted his list for 2016.

FINE.

My list for 2016 isn't as high-minded as 2015's. One hard lesson I learned last year Involved not listing many of the movies for a Halloween Roundtable I do every year, which put me rather behind.

So there's all those nasty lowbrow horror movies, judge me as you will. There's still enough here that allow me to raise my pinky at better dinner parties.

As if I have time for dinner parties.

I learned some lessons last year, and am being a little nicer to myself this year. Things like adding in the aforementioned roundtables, upcoming movies I know I will be journeying to a theater to see, and generally trying not to make this one feel like work.

Watching movies should never feel like work.
