Best & Worst 2018

This year we decided to cut back on the amount of time and money we spend at the theatre. After smashing our viewing records in 2017, we took a step back and only watched 116 films on the big screen in 2018. That’s 34 fewer movies for those of you keeping track at home. My reviews slowed down during the summer as various trips across North America cut into viewing and writing routines. At the time of this post, I owe you guys 18 reviews (the ones in orange) some already written, some need to be written.

Thanks for checking in on the blog even on days I never wrote anything. I have no clue where things will go in the future, but writing is something I’ve always enjoyed so I hope to return to it in the new year. Like always, I look forward to your comments on this year’s recap.
