Film Log 2017

Here is my list of movies watched in 2017. I KNOW I missed 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, movies from the “Good Beer and Movie” nights are [bracketed], and the underlined area is my 2017 31 Days of Horror; this year I did “Sci-Fi Horror.” Also, I only bold or italicize on my first viewing of the film. I love The Big Lebowski, but as I’ve seen it a million times, it’s not highlighted this year.
