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 »
For #109 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on June 5th I watched: Spy.
Finally, a female-led comedy featuring Melissa McCarthy that doesn’t just insult her on a consistent basis.
Yes, truly this movie is fun, full of character, and doesn’t try to rely solely on fat jokes.Read More »
For #107 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on June 3rd I watched: Nightmare Factory.
The movies we loved as children were created by visionary filmmakers, but that term is often relegated towards the directors, rarely the writers, and sometimes even the actors.Read More »
For #90 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 20th I watched: The Voices.
I love actors who consistently pick roles that are super risky, because it allows them to find themselves, hone their skills, and try new things. Therefore these are also the actors whom I highly respect. And yet there is one man who picks said roles who can be hit or miss, but is still a kick-ass man.Read More »
For #78 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 8th I watched: They Live.
This is one of those films that holds up amazingly well over the years even though at the time, it didn’t appear to have any legs.
They Live is a social commentary of the news-media and popular culture’s stranglehold on the population’s attention. And that trend is alarmingly more pronounced in today’s “always-connected” lifestyle.

Working on lots of new and exciting content right now, some of which I’ll share with you all very soon.
But with my #DLMChallenge and now my other movie-watching challenge the #HalloweenSpectacular (31 Days of Halloween) nearing completion, clearly I’m lacking with free time.Read More »
At one point my uncertainty in completion of the challenge was palpable, and now as I find myself closing in on par day by day (as of press time eleven behind), I now find the task of blogging about every entry insurmountable.Read More »
For #75 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 5th I watched: Down Periscope.
As a kid, I used to confuse this movie with McHale’s Navy having never seen either one. And now, I have a reference for at least one half of that mistaken identity case. Wow, I just looked up McHale’s Navy and swore that Kelsey Grammar was in that too.

For #74 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 4th I watched: The World According to Garp.
Since the passing of Robin Williams in August 2014, I had wanted to catch up on the films of his that I had missed and what better way than the #DLMChallenge?Read More »
For #73 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on May 3rd I watched: Nebraska.
Black and white movies are extremely rare these days, and the choice is usually employed to drive home a theme within in the film, and Nebraska is no different.
Being my first Alexander Payne film yet, Nebraska delivers in strong character development and ostensibly simple, yet intricate story elements.Read More »
