Film Log 2016

Here is my list of movies watched in 2016. I feel like I missed writing down a few, but now, at the end of the year, I am unable to remember what. Dammit.

The films that I especially liked are in bold, and the ones that I especially did not are in italics. The titles marked with a * denote a short (less than 50 minute) film, and the underlined area is the 31 Days of Horror. Also, I only bold or italicize on my first viewing of the film. I love UHF, but as I’ve seen it a million times, it’s not highlighted this year.

I try to use alternate posters as much as possible.  Also, since I had a few oldies on the best of, I used VHS cover art when I could find it.
