My Favorite TV Shows of 2022

            I watched less television this year. Or, at least, it felt like it. Although we can still count the hours of episodes here as quite a few, I didn’t dive into the small screen like I have previously. For some shows, I tuned in weekly for new adventures. For others, I caught up or… Continue reading My Favorite TV Shows of 2022

My Favorite Movies of 2021

               Thanks to a semi-active Letterboxd account, I can share that I watched about 118 films for the first time in 2021. I also re-watched 106 movies. I saw my usual bout of horror films thanks to OcTerror and a vigorous research project. A lot of new movies were released digitally and in theaters. While… Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2021

My Favorite TV Shows of 2021

            If 2021 was the year where I was an average reader then it was also a year where I enjoyed more TV, movies, and music than before. I dove back into old favorites with new seasons and discovered shows that I’d somehow missed along the years, along with premieres. I binged. I tuned in.… Continue reading My Favorite TV Shows of 2021

The Year of Nora & Nancy: Lesser Known Crimes

   While Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers are better known for their rom-coms and female-oriented comedies, they have enough films between them that some have slipped into the past. For two filmmakers with decade-spanning careers, it’s understandable to have movies that might be forgettable or lesser known compared to the ‘greatest hits’ but this month… Continue reading The Year of Nora & Nancy: Lesser Known Crimes

My Favorite Movies of 2020

As of this posting, I’ve watched 102 films for the first time in 2020. Most of them were horror movies, obviously, because I dedicate a lot of my viewing to OcTerror preparations. However, plenty of others diverged from my usual habits or met expectations; I also re-watched a lot of old favorites this year, but… Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2020

My Favorite TV Shows of 2020

            We can all safely say we probably binged, enjoyed, and consumed more media in 2020 than in some years prior. I’m a person who regularly watches TV shows and movies, reads books, and listens to music and I (mostly) increased the value of all of those categories during this year. Prior to quarantine, with… Continue reading My Favorite TV Shows of 2020

My Favorite TV Shows of 2019

During the semester, I’ve got my hands full with writing, reading, and grading so my time to go out and watch a movie is a bit limited. Because of this, I watch more TV shows for my little doses of stress release and escapism. Some of these are shows that premiered in 2019, that I… Continue reading My Favorite TV Shows of 2019

My Favorite Movies of 2019

In the past, I’ve just thrown up lists of every movie I saw for the first time in a year, but I’ve started to be more selective about what I call a ‘favorite’ movie of the year. So I really think about which films have left an impression on me in the long term or… Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2019

My Favorite TV Shows of 2018

During the semester, I’ve got my hands full with writing, reading, and grading so my time to go out and watch a movie is a bit limited. Because of this, I’ve definitely started watching more TV shows in the past year and a half than I did before and a lot of these shows have… Continue reading My Favorite TV Shows of 2018

My Favorite Movies of 2018

In the past, I’ve just thrown up lists of every movie I saw for the first time in a year, but this year I decided to be more selective and really think about which films have left an impression on me in the long term or had a viewing experience that is quintessentially 2018. With… Continue reading My Favorite Movies of 2018
