for updated lists of all years go music and movies.
End of year awards

FILM
first, some thoughts:

  • we came up with our lists separately, but there was a lot of overlap.
  • decent number of films in the theater this year. had to sprint at the end to make my 300 goal.
  • third year in a row i've seen 301 movies.
  • pretty solid year in the middle of the pack. my top three were picked fairly easily, but 4-12 there were a lot of films in the mix that were all basically on the same level for me.
