***January Seventeenth Two Thousand and Nineteen***   

Best Movies of 2018!
Obviously, I'm not a movie reviewer, and I also rarely go to the theater, so I missed a ton of the hot-shit award worthy
flicks that usually make these lists.  Still, I watched a shit ton of movies, and these were my favorites from this year.


1.   Roma
2.   Won’t You Be My Neighbor
3.   Widows
4.   Ballad Of Buster Scruggs
5.   Black Panther
6.   Avengers: Infinity War
7.   Isle Of Dogs
8.   Death Of Stalin
9.   Mandy
10. Annihilation


Best Movies of 2017! (...that I didn't see until 2018.)
Like I said above, a lot of movies don't get seen in a timely fashion.  The first two here would for sure have made my
top ten last year had I seen them in time.


1.   Deadpool 2
2.   Blade Runner 2049
3.   Logan Lucky
4.   War for the Planet of the Apes
5.   Wind River
6.   Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
7.   It
8.   The Post
9.   The Foreigner
10. Pork Pie


Best Movies...of All the Other Years!
 (...that I also didn't see until 2018.)
Holy shit balls, Threads seriously fucked me up.  That movie is INTENSE.


1. Threads (1984)
2. God Knows Where I Am (2016)
3. A Man Escaped (1956)
4. Eye In The Sky (2016)
5. Never Too Young To Die (1986)


Best Stand-Up of 2018!
Got to see Mulaney perform pretty much his entire special live right before it came out, and it might be the funniest
stand-up I've ever seen.  


1. John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous At Radio City
2. Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife
3. Demitri Martin: The Overthinker
4. Sam Morril: Positive Influence
5. Flight Of The Conchords: Live In London


Best Documentaries of 2018!
I don't feel like this needs an explanation.  Everyone should definitely see "This Is Congo" though.  


1. This Is Congo
2. Zen Diaries Of Garry Shandling
3. It Will Be Chaos
4. Jane Fonda In Five Acts 
5. Quincy


Worst Movies I Unfortunately Watched in 2018!
I avoided MST3K films for the most part, but Ator was so bad I couldn't let it slide.  


1. Atlantic Rim (2013)
2. Ator The Fighting Eagle (1982)
3. Blues Brothers 2000 (1998)
4. Croc (2007)
5. Lady Psycho Killer (2015)

GREAT SUCCESS!
In my effort to watch 365 movies in 365 days, my final tally was 381.  Suck it, active social life!  I thought it might be
difficult, but I greatly underestimated how many movies I watch as a natural course of life.  There were only a few times
when I thought about needing to wath something towards this goal.  A few stats, just for shits and giggles.  

Count by year:
2018:  96
2017:  102
2010-2016:  51
2000-2009:  22

1980-1989:  47
1970-1979:  20
1960-1969:  7
1950-1959:  3
1940-1949:  3
