Beyond Fest '16: The Bad Batch

another year, another 46289572 more films to watch...

i think this year i watched more films than i ever did in five years. i watched about 127 new films this year. and thats just NEW films. i tend to watch at least one film everyday before i eventually fall asleep. 2008 wasnt a GREAT year but it was a year of progressing development and experience. i mean every year should be a year of development and experience but this year has a little bit more to offer. i watched everything from foreign to the 60s to indie to blockbuster films. ive been getting lazy the last half year that i didnt actually realize the kind of impact the films that i watched this year had on my life, until now. and to think of it, i have discovered new directors and new films that i now consider my all time favorite because of this year. i guess now i can say i had a pretty good year in the film department.


my all time favorite director, stanley kubrick has had a huge impact in my life due to his iconic films.

I've been wanting to watch Inland Empire but I've heard it's really bad? I'll definitely watch it during the day though hehe.

I need to watch the majority of these... where have I been, honestly? I loved the shining classic Stephen King. You should give Takashi Miike films a shot although it's a bit gruesome and gore filled the way he portrays certain scenes are interesting if not unusual for horror. I've recently watched "ichi the killer" and "audition" very, very hard to watch and by watch I mean sit still. I love how your blog is centered on your interest on films.
