Media Diet 2017: Movies

Categorized in:

As noted in the companion post about books, I’ll be keeping track of every movie I watch this year, with particular attention to the ones that move me in some serious way, positive or negative. Hopefully I can turn you onto some things you might not have otherwise found.

I’ll update this periodically.

Media Diet 2017: Movies

  • The Secret Life of Pets
  • Tucker and Dale vs. Evil
  • Joshy
  • Danny Says
  • XX
  • Lavender
  • Phantasm III
  • Oklahoma City-Informative, disturbing documentary of Timothy McVeigh and far-right domestic terrorism
  • Carnival of Souls—One of my all-time favorites, watched for the 4th or 5th time.
  • Beyond the Gates
  • Tropic Thunder
  • Exorcist III
  • A Dark Song
  • Batman and Bill
  • Krisha
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2
  • Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th
  • Country: Portraits of an American Sound
  • Big Trouble in Little China
  • Prince of Darkness—Strangely, perhaps my favorite John Carpenter movie
  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
  • Sicario—Is there a better working director than Denis Villeneuve? I say no.
  • The Blackcoat’s Daughter—So good. You should see this.
  • Nocturnal Animals
  • The Void
  • The Conjuring 2
  • Blood on Satan’s Claw—A key, founding document of folk horror, and with good reason. While a little slack in places, a strong, engaging bit of British horror.
  • Mad Max, with an awesome original score performed live by Morricone Youth
  • Witchfinder General
  • The Devil’s Candy—Despiute strong buzz, found this so generic and boring that I didn’t make it to the end
