I will forever regret the decision I made last night. If there was ever truth to the parallel universe theory, wherein with every individual’s decision, comes a split universe where the opposite reaction occurs, then this is proof positive of how life-changing that event could have been.
The #DLMChallenge for me was to either catch up on the amazing films I’d missed over the years, or to see the ones I tossed aside; the ones where I say: “Eh, maybe later.” Thankfully the list is filled more with the former than the latter.
This was an arduous task. Most days I didn’t think I’d make it. But I did! 368 films in all!
Scroll Down below for the entire list and at the end, I’ll tell you how many hours total I’ve watched films this year… But first some superlatives: Read More »

I’m a HUGE nut when it comes to Marvel films, and for many reasons. First, I love crossovers. The shared Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had me stoked since the very first post-credits teaser with Nick Fury asking Stark to join the Avengers Initiative.
