2018: The Year in Reviews (Part I)

This has been a weird year so far. January and February were two of the strangest months of my life, and as such, I didn’t even start watching movies until late February. The first movie from 2018 I saw was Black Panther… and that was in its second weekend. I didn’t get going on everything else until after the Oscars. So everything you’re about to see is stuff that was all watched in the last eight weeks.

Last year at this time, I’d watched 96 movies. And that number started (as it usually does) around the end of January. I was five weeks behind this year. I originally put that in here to explain to you why the total this year is way lower than it was last year. But no. I hit 100 movies yesterday. Go figure.

Anyway, here’s the first batch of films I’ve seen so far from this year. We’ll check back after August for the next batch. (more…)

Pic of the Day: “The truth is, the day you found me, I was sent here from the Moon.” “The Moon put you in the bamboo?” “I understood it. On the day His Mjesty was here. And now, on the 15th day, the people of the Moon will come for me, and I must leave you both forever.””

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Dat’s love, dat’s love, dat’s love, dat’s love / You go for me and I’m taboo / But if you’re hard to get, I’ll go for you / And if I do, then you are through / Oh, my baby, that’s the end of you.” ♫

Pic of the Day: “Do you have a boat?” “No. I walked.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “I always told you. You’re special. Your history isn’t over yet. There’s still a page left.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “I race cars, play tennis, and fondle women, BUT! I have weekends off, and I am my own boss.”

Pic of the Day: “Music’s the only thing that makes sense anymore, man. Play it loud enough, it keeps the demons at bay.”

Pic of the Day: ♫ “Luck be lady tonight / Luck if you’ve been a lady to begin with / Luck be a lady tonight / Luck let a gentleman see / Just how nice a dame you can be / I know the way you’ve treated other guys you’ve been with / Luck be a lady with me.” ♫

Pic of the Day: “I must have you alive. Alive, as you have already been every evening, for weeks, for months.” “I have never stayed so long anywhere.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “The man who tries to cheat his fate is more than a coward, he’s a fool as well.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “I swear to God I’ll pistol whip the next guy who says ‘Shenanigans.'” “Hey Farva, what’s the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit on the walls and the mozzarella sticks?” “You mean Shenanigans?” “OOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Damn! We’re in a tight spot!”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Will you help me?” “No.” “Pardon me?” “Nope… Wanna know why?” “Nope.” “Because you wouldn’t pass the initiation.” “What initiation?” “Well, for starters, you have to purify yourself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka.”

Pic of the Day: “I live, I die. I LIVE AGAIN!”


Image

Pic of the Day: “What’s the use, Baby? I’m a bum. She saw through me like an x-ray machine. There’s no place in the world for a guy like me.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “Cowards die many times before their deaths; The valiant never taste of death but once.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “As your leader, I encourage you from time to time, and always in a respectful manner, to question my logic. If you’re unconvinced that a particular plan of action I’ve decided is the wisest, tell me so, but allow me to convince you and I promise you right here and now, no subject will ever be taboo. Except, of course, the subject that was just under discussion. The price you pay for bringing up either my Chinese or American heritage as a negative is… I collect your fucking head. Just like this fucker here. Now, if any of you sons of bitches got anything else to say, now’s the fucking time!”

Pic of the Day: “Sometimes you got to get through your fear to see the beauty on the other side.”

Pic of the Day: “May I ask why you felt little Tiffany deserved to die?” “Well, she was the only one that actually seemed dangerous at the time, sir.” “How’d you come to that conclusion?” “Well, first I was gonna pop this guy hanging from the street light, and I realized, y’know, he’s just working out. I mean, how would I feel if somebody come runnin’ in the gym and bust me in my ass while I’m on the treadmill? Then I saw this snarling beast guy, and I noticed he had a tissue in his hand, and I’m realizing, y’know, he’s not snarling, he’s sneezing. Y’know, ain’t no real threat there. Then I saw little Tiffany. I’m thinking, y’know, eight-year-old white girl, middle of the ghetto, bunch of monsters, this time of night with quantum physics books? She about to start some shit, Zed. She’s about eight years old, those books are WAY too advanced for her. If you ask me, I’d say she’s up to something. And to be honest, I’d appreciate it if you eased up off my back about it…. Or do I owe her an apology?”

Pic of the Day: “What we see and what we seem are but a dream, a dream within a dream.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “You filmed him dying.” “That’s my job, that’s what I do, I’d like to think if you’re seeing me you’re having the worst day of your life.”


Image

Pic of the Day: “So, the wedding was postponed?” “Oh, no, not the wedding. We had the wedding. My daddy gave me away.” “But you said Archie Lee waited.” “Yeah, after the wedding he waited.” “For what?” “For me to be ready for marriage.” “How long did he have to wait?” “Oh, he’s still waiting.”
