I watched 95 movies in total last year, a mix of recent stuff as well as catching up on movies from the 80s and 90s. Highlights of the year for me was watching Tom McCarthy’s 3 movies Win Win, The Station Agent and The Visitor, I really like the way he creates and portrays characters. I also re-watched a few movies last year which I usually don’t do, I watched Pulp Fiction and Minority Report again two of my favourites. And I caught up with some classics comedies such as Airplane and The Jerk with a whole lot more to catch up with.
