So I fail to post all of December (and it's probably a good thing that I did, I was pretty grumpy for most of it), and upon my return I bring you a most useless entry: a list of the movies I watched (or rewatched) this year. It's organized by decade because the past few days I've been feeling really curious to know how many movies I watched from each decade. I'm actually not all that thrilled with the answer. Every year I think "I want to watch more older movies!" and I thought I'd done better this year but looking at this I'm not sure I did? How is the 2010s list the longest one? Did I really only watch four silents? And how did I fail so hard at the 1930s when I seriously love 1930s movies?? Well clearly I am just going to have to make sure my 2015 movie list looks rather different.

(I am pleased to report that I watched three Rosalind Russell movies this year though. Great actress or greatest actress?)

Also, this is just a list because I'm lazy, but you are more than welcome to ask for my thoughts on any of these!

Special note, the 1953 "Tell-Tale Heart" is perhaps my favourite thing that I watched all year, you should totally watch it and let it creep you right out.

This (https://greekmythcomix.wordpress.com/comic/deaths-in-the-iliad-a-classics-infographic/) is not at all relevant to this post, but it may be relevant to our shared interests. My friend Lisa linked me on Twitter and it is literally the best thing ever at the moment :D

Also, I am impressed by your movie list! I always WANT to watch things but never have the time that I'd like to do it in (or perhaps I just use that time to do other things? I don't know).

Hahaha, I love it!! It's actually pretty interesting to see all that information gathered in one easy-to-read place. And the linked comic about Paris really amused me, especially the picture of him shooting Diomedes in the foot. xD

Please do not be too impressed by my movie list! I had a disgusting amount of free time this year! Although I am also guilty of saying "Hmm that looks good, I should watch that," and then putting it off for years and years.
