So, if you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you know that I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus as of late. It’s been a year or two of hiatuses to be perfectly honest, but the reason for this current one was that I was finally hired to write a screenplay (I know. I’m super excited!). Anyways, I just didn’t have time to review every movie I was watching. And, at first, I had stopped reviewing everything except for movies that I gave an “A” or an “A+” to (and I may renew doing that in the near future. For whatever reason, this blog is in my blood, and I can’t seem to shake it). But when I reached the crunch time on my script, I abandoned that as well. Hopefully, I’ll find time to update this semi-regularly in the future, but for now, we can at least celebrate the fact that I’ve watched (if not quite reviewed) my 500th film for this blog that I started three and a half years ago. I’ve still been keeping track of my superlatives for this 50 film batch, and although I didn’t review every film I watched, I still gave them scores. And before I do my post of my past 50 film superlatives, I thought I’d make a list of movies I’ve seen since I stopped reviewing so that my readers will have an idea of what I’ve watched and what I’ve thought about those films. Enjoy! (Links are included for films I did actually review)
