The process of creating this list was just as difficult as some of the other lists I have created in the past. Certain letters came to me right away, while others required a bit of research and a process of elimination. I could easily have two A to Z lists to present to you all.Declassify >
This could very well be the same list you’ve read a hundred times since the beginning of the year. Do I apologize for this? I do not. This is a geek blog and most of these movies are geek movies, it just so happens that geek has moved into and maintained its place within the mainstream.
That being said, this is my list of the 18 movies I’m most looking forward to in 2018. Enjoy, and pass the popcorn.Declassify >
Over the course of 2017 I’ve consumed thousands of hours of podcasts. And for you, dear reader, I have collected some of the more transcendent quotes that hit me somewhere during those many hours.
To those who still don’t understand “podcasting,” I’d like to reference two quotes from a book by Marc Maron named Waiting for the Punch, before I start, which eloquently explain why podcasting is important.Declassify >
Some call them non-traditional Christmas movies, but I prefer to call them, as the title says tangentially holiday Movies. I’ve also heard them called non-Christmas Christmas movies. Potato potahto…
All of these Movies have at least a passing mention of the holiday season, but are not centered around that fact.
So, for the Scrooge’s out there… This is a list where you could argue a Christmasaholic into watching, and I think you should, especially if they make you sit through hallmark holiday movies.Declassify >
I love Kingsman: The Secret Service a lot. According to the Panel to Screen extra on the Blu-ray, the movie is a “postmodern love letter to spy movies.” Director Matthew Vaughn felt that spy movies have become too serious and no longer fun, and this movie is the result.
Hollywood talent agrees as well. Keep in mind the A-list actors who are in this: Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Caine, and Mark Hamill.Declassify >
