Let’s start off by saying, it takes a lot of effort to make a movie, so if one gets made, that’s pretty impressive, right? If it was up to me, I would put all the movies ever on this list, even if I hadn’t seen them.
Instead, I just listed the best ones that I saw. These are in no particular order.
IRON MAN 2
Holy crap, have guys seen this? The Iron Man and the black guy BOTH have robots suits in this one. I never saw the first movie or read the comics, but it didn’t really matter.
TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT
This movie wasn’t great, but I saw the whole thing so it gets to be on the list. There’s a part where a couple has sex on a trampoline and you get to see the girl in her bra. Once in highschool I got to second base with a girl on a trampoline.
2/3 of THE MUPPETS
We took our kids to this and it was a lot of fun. I had to take the 1 year-old out to the lobby three different times because she was being all shitty and bothing people. What I saw of the movie was pretty good.
The trailer for PROMETHEUS
I wasn’t sure what was happening in here, but it’s for a futuristic astronaut movie. I watched it about a week ago and can’t remember if they have to fight something or maybe they get stuck in a cave. Either way, there’s lots great action, so check it out if you can.
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE
I think, technically, I saw this in 2010 when it came out, but I’m still pretty excited about it.
BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES
I thought this was Battle: Los Angeles. It was actually what they called a ‘mockbuster.’ I got fooled and turned it off after 12 minutes. While it was pretty funny, I was kind of mad and just went to bed.
CARE BEARS: THE GIVING FESTIVAL
My 4 year-old requested this one. It makes the list because it was easy to sleep during. It’s not all ‘shout-y’ like Dora The Explorer.
A rerun of NUMB3RS
I had never seen this show before, but the format was familiar. It’s structured like CSI and Law & Order, except that the smart-numbers-character-guy goes into a trance and sees a bunch of math in his head. Then he figures everything out. I call that guy ‘Numbers.’
This is a made-for-TV movie. It was probably pretty terrible if you want to get critical, but I didn’t mind it. It was on at my parents house while they had guests over.
YOUTUBE PLAYLIST of music videos from the 90s
This really made me nostalgic. It was especially exciting to see some of the one-hit-wonder bands that I had totally forgotten about. Remember Spacehog?!!
All in all, it was a pretty great year for movies!
